However, a few millimetres added to the height of the HTC U11 Plus have enabled cramming in a bigger battery to compensate for the larger screen. Plus a little extra for good measure.

Next to its Samsung and LG rivals, a dual lens rear camera is the obvious missing part.
It can’t take the blurry background photos that friends might call “arty” on Instagram and Facebook.
We’re likely to see phones with Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 845 chipset just a few months after the HTC U11 Plus too, set to offer yet more power and improved efficiency.
The rest is largely in place, though. The HTC U11 Plus has a very high quality rear camera, if one that is a little slow to shoot, an Alsoar Compatibile Sostituzione per iPhone SE Custodia iPhone 5 extra wide QHD screen and 128GB of storage. There’s curved glass on the back, and a band of metal around its sides to join the front and rear glass panels.
Its cover samsung galaxy s7 edge rigida look is less dynamic than the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus, though, which has a curved front and even more aggressive cutting cover samsung galaxy note 8.0 of the screen surround. Where it leaves virtually zero dead space to the left and right of the display, the HTC U11 Plus actually has slightly more than the cheaper Honor View 10.
As such, despite the newer display design, this phone is a little bigger and heavier than the HTC U11. Still, it’s only as unwieldy as some of the last generation’s 5.5 inch phones, even with a 6 inch screen.
The curved rear glass also feels great. HTC has prioritised smooth contours over absolute thinness, as the HTC U11 Plus cover samsung s6 coccinella is relatively thick for such a pricey phone at 8.5mm. But it makes a pleasant change from all the abrupt flat back phones. HTC calls it a “liquid surface”.
This rear glass is highly reflective and comes in dark blue and the dark silvery grey we have here, although cover samsung s10e spigen there’s also word of a translucent model. The standard variants are mirror like, rather than having a multi layered finish that kwmobile Apple iPhone 6 6S Cover Custodia in silicone TPU per plays with light.
Like other recent high end HTCs, the U11 Plus has the Edge Sense feature, letting you squeeze the phone to act as a shortcut gesture. As standard it launches the camera, probably the most useful option for many, but you can set it to fire up any app you like.
There’s 128GB of storage, matching the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus and LG V30. Unless you’re a media or games hoarder you won’t have to offload photos from the HTC U11 Plus for a long, long time.
The most contentious part of the HTC U11 Plus’s cover samsung j5 2017 brillantini liquidi hardware is its lack of a headphone jack.
You do get a pair of USB earphones in the box, and a 3.5mm jack adaptor, but if you have a beloved pair of wired headphones, you might want to consider the OnePlus 5T or Honor View 10, which are several hundred dollars/pounds cheaper and have a 3.5mm socket.
While there are no particularly cogent technical arguments for leaving out a headphone jack in a phone this large and 8.5mm thick, it probably does make water resistance easier to apply.
The HTC U11 Plus is rated at IP68, meaning it can be submerged in 1.5 metres of water for 30 minutes. IP67, the more common rating, limits the depth to 1 metre.
There’s also a fingerprint scanner, sitting on the back, rather than the front as in the HTC U11. It’s quick and reliable, and unlike the Samsung Galaxy S8, it does not cover samsung galaxy a3 2015 brillantini sit Cover iphone 7 plus – Zeppy.io in an awkward position.
Screen6 inch 1440 x 2880 Super LCD6 screen’Cinema’ colourSlightly limited max brightnessThe HTC U11 Plus has a 6 inch 1440 x 2880 LCD screen. If you’re cover samsung galaxy s3 flip case not used to the resolutions of this new breed SWISSVOICE Cover Custodia Flap Antigraffio per Telefono Cellulare of 18:9 aspect phone, that’s the equivalent of a 1440 x 2560 screen like the HTC U11’s, cover samsung s5 tigre with more vertical pixels to fill in the added space.
HTC calls the screen LCD6 a proprietary take on the IPS tech we see in most good non OLED phones, tablets and laptops. Turn up the brightness and take the U11 Plus into a dark room and you’ll see its black level isn’t quite OLED standard.
However, its white tone is clean, and day to day you’ll be hard pressed to notice the contrast cover samsung a5 2017 anti urto difference between this and an OLED. It’s a phone, not a home cinema.
That said, HTC’s big claim for the display is that it can fulfill the DCI P3 color gamut. This is the range of colors used by the film industry, with much deeper tones than the sRGB standard monitors, phones and printers are traditionally measured against.
You can switch between the sRGB and DCI P3 standards in the HTC U11 Plus’s settings menu. And, sure enough, the cover samsung s6 rugged DCI mode looks seriously saturated. The sRGB mode is on hand for those who like a more relaxed look, which we actually prefer here.
The one complaint: top brightness does not seem all that high compared with other high end LCD phones. We didn’t struggle to use the HTC U11 Plus outdoors, but we were reviewing from London. It’s hardly the sunniest place on Earth, cover samsung s5 neo originali even on bright days…
