In fact, the vote in last week’s poll went 70/30 in favor of the new flagship – a merger of HTC 10’s perfectionism and U Ultra’s user focused customization.
As expected, the lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack proved to be a point of contention, but HTC does provide an adapter in the box. The Xiaomi Mi 6 got away with it and this adapter seems to have pleased most HTC fans.
HTC U11’s unique features – the liquid glass back and Edge Sense – didn’t come up often, instead the phone’s excellence in the camera department and audio performance were mentioned. No surprise, those are easily the best qualities of the U11.
There were some detractors, of course, and it doesn’t help that in the US the flagship is exclusive to Sprint. If nothing else, it should sell better than the 10 Bolt.
