Transmit power is the only thing tested RF wise in the FCC reports. But we have already seen HPUE devices come through the FCC. The power class was increased, it won't look all that different from the other reports.

Just took delivery, damn this phone is slippery as hell.  You better not be clumsy if you're not going to rock a case.

For a flagship device that you can get for under $600 I think it brings exceptional value. Camera is amazing, its insanely responsive, the screen is great to look at, its waterproof, speakers sound great, comfortable to hold(even though its very slippery), rf performance is excellent for me thus far as well.  Its a pretty good all around device.

 

My only real concern right now is battery life.  Seems like most reviews are giving it a thumbs up for battery life, even going as far as saying that even with a smaller 3000mah battery, it still lasts longer the s8+.  This could not be any further from the truth.  From day one my s8+ has continued to amaze me as how efficient it runs but so far the u11, while not bad, definitely isn't living up to what I expected when it comes to battery life.  I've had it for about 20 hours so far so I'll keep monitoring it for the next few days to see how things go.

 

Also, no visual voicemail.

First of all this phone is FAST. I know we all say that when you have a new phone. But the UFS 2.1 Storage in this phone is like having a M.2 SSD in your PC. The speed at which this thing just chewed through downloading and installing all my apps upon setup was pretty impressive.

 

Signal strength seems improved compared to my HTC 10. Even my 5 Ghz WiFi at home stays connected a good bit further away within my house.

 

I've yet to go through a full day yet so I can't speak on battery life yet but I see less of a decline in power consumption when I'm actually using the phone compared to my 10.

 

Display is bright and is easily visible in direct sunlight - again something that's a bit of an issue with the HTC 10.

Camera is crazy good. Launches focuses and shoots photos very rapidly.

 

Edge sense is not bad when you set it to the correct pressure sensitivity. It works pretty well and is not clunky or annoying when sent to a low enough sensitivity that you don't have to death grip the thing to trigger it but not so low that basic interactions set it off. When you have it set up right it works well and is a nice way to make some quick shortcuts, especially since Google Assistant has replaced Google now when holding the home button. So now I have it set so that a squeeze and hold launches Google Now.

 

Lack of headphone jack is suuuuper annoying. At work I would quickly switch from having headphones plugged into my speakers to plugging it into my phone when I wanted to play an Instagram video or listen to something on the phone. Now for me to do so I have to carry the dongle with me. Another thing is that you can no longer turn boomsound on or off when using the dongle or set custom audio profile for different headphones.

Don't forget to get your amazon dots by going to the htc site.

Thanks! I was looking for it yesterday but I guess since the phone wasn't officially released the site wasn't live yet.

I got the black. It looks good, but I think the blue was probably a better choice. I may try to change out at store, but if they charge a restocking fee I'll keep it. Love the phone though. Fast as hell, especially when updating apps.

I hope I don't regret cancelling my order for the HTC U11. It really looks like a great device, though I wanted to have the shipping stopped on it before it got sent out, as I changed my mind for the Sony Xperia XZ Premium, due to my likely getting the Sony Z9D television. The Sony XZ Premium has the advantage of a 4k Triluminos display, while the HTC U11 has the advantage of better audio and wider network capability within the U.S. This also means my staying with T-Mobile.

 

Anyways, I'm still impressed by HTC for making a very beautiful looking device in the HTC U11. The Sapphire Blue especially.

I may decide to reorder it, or keep the device if it ends up being shipped. HTC was very nice and polite about my order cancellation, but told me there is a possibility it may still ship out. They weren't entirely sure if the order had gone far enough in to reverse the order shipment or not. Really depends on my tv purchase, due to my wanting compatibility between the tv and the phone.

 

I'm glad to hear though about it being a great device for those who have it. The HTC U11 certainly seems alot better than the HTC 10, which I wasn't impressed with.

Any LG users pick up the U11 yet? Wondering if anyone has any comparisons. So far I can't find a good enough reason to replace my G5 ... yet.

Can anyone verify if wifi calling is available, also how is RCS working with this phone? When I send a MMS to a non Sprint phone, the app(Android messages) compresses the picture so bad you almost can't view the picture.

I have mixed feelings about this phone. That or I got a lemon. I already have a crack under the glass. It's been in the provided case as soon as I opened box. And it's been kept in a microfiber bag. Camera shutters on start up every time. After each photo snap it shutters as well. Focusing is crazy fast. No vvm. Call quality seems to be better and clearer as apposed to the HTC 10. Happy to have WiFi calling again. The ear phones are pretty good as well. That or I'm just really used to the quality I get from my LG pro 750s.

The case that comes with it looks cool but it's pure garbage, so I hope you're really not relying on that for any sort of protection. As far as camera issues, I haven't had any so if that's what you are experiencing just get it exchanged.

I havent looked into the XZ Premium much so pardon my ignorance but what benefit is there to having that phone with that Sony TV? I'm assuming Sony included some features that are exclusive to their ecosystem?

      The rumor mill has fully geared up, so it seems time for a thread in which the potential HTC-made 2016 Nexus phones can be discussed.
       
      Rumors suggest two phones: a 5" device codenamed Sailfish, and a larger device codenamed Marlin. Both are thought to be produced by HTC. [There's also a report that Google is making its own phone, without an OEM partner--along the lines of a Pixel phone--but that report has been largely discounted.]
       
      Android Police has claimed it knows with 8/10 certainty some specs of the smaller device--Sailfish:
      Manufactured by HTC 5" 1080p display (~440PPI) Quad-core 2.0GHz 64-bit processor (model unknown) 4GB RAM 2770mAh battery 32GB storage (unknown if multiple models will be available, or even if this is the base storage level) 12MP rear camera, 8MP front Rear-mounted fingerprint scanner USB-C port (bottom) Bottom-firing speaker or speakers (unknown if dual) Top-mounted headphone jack Bluetooth 4.2 Any thoughts on these devices? The last several Nexus devices have been Sprint compatible; is there any reason to think these won't be? Any hints in regulatory filings? How is HTC's radio performance, generally? Will Sprint sell them directly, and even if they do, will it still be preferable to buy directly from Google?

      I see both Verizon and AT&T are getting this.  Has anyone heard rumblings for a Sprinter variant?  I was hoping since they at least have a CDMA version that Sprint would be able to get their bands on it also.

      So the official complete render as per ev leaks has been leaked http://androidandme.com/2014/05/news/htc-m8-prime-m8-ace-image-leaks-show-backsides-of-unannounced-phones/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=htc-m8-prime-m8-ace-image-leaks-show-backsides-of-unannounced-phones
      Looks not like what I anticipated I really hope that is an early design and color scheme.
       
       
      Copy and pasted from androidcentral.com
      These leaks come courtesy of none other than @evleaks, and considering that the came out in a spat with Jeff Gordon (HTC's Senior Global Online Communications Manager, not the race car driver), they should be taken with a bit of a skeptical eye. It's also worth considering that, like the Galaxy S5 Prime, we don't expect that any One M8 Prime device would be a replacement for the One M8. Think of it more as a next generation HTC One Max. So on to the leaks:
      Quad-core 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor
      3GB RAM
      5.5" 1440x2560 QHD display
      Cat. 6 LTE
      Waterproof design
      Those specs, while open to change, would be in line with what we might expect from a phone like this, and they line up with an earlier leak out of China. There's one more leak, and this one we're strapping on our skeptic helmets: it's made out of "a composite of aluminum and liquid silicone."http://www.androidcentral.com/htc-one-m8-prime-rumored-exotic-material-composition-faster-lte

      Pretty sure this is an April Fool's joke, but if not, it's amazingly ridiculous. Good for a few chuckles.
