HTC could make a serious comeback with the HTC U11 Plus

HTC U11+ official

Or maybe look at this way - Fi is aimed at a specific audience and it's not meant for everyone. It looks very similar in style but in a more manageable size so if even a phone like the original U11 is too big, then the Life version might suit.

Although we're impressed with the design of the U11 Life, it's the specs on offer that really show why it's a lot cheaper. However, there is no information available about the pricing and availability of Android One variant.

HTC has announced two new smartphones in addition to its flagship U11 smartphone.

I can back it up: given the choice between using the free HTC earbuds and the U11 Life, or my iPhone paired with my standard commuting headphones - a pair of $250 Powerbeats - I chose HTC and its solution. Don't rush to the conclusion that the midranger actually has a better camera, however. The problem here is that at $349, the U11 Life has just entered a territory that isn't so competitive in the U.S. It gets even worse to know that at such a price, you can still get a decent flagship phone from 2016.

Edin Dzeko's slight touch following a cross from Aleksandar Kolarov set up El Shaarawy to blast in from the edge of the area. At the break, Lampard says Eden Hazard was the only Chelsea player who was creating opportunities for others and himself.

The HTC U11 Life will be available exclusively from T-Mobile starting tomorrow, November 3rd. Back to the States edition of the U11 life, you get HTC Sense on top of Android 7, but HTC promises that an Android 8 Oreo update is coming in the next 30 days. Interestingly, the Android One version of the Moto X4 is limited to the US market while the rest of the world gets the one with Motorola's software.

The U11+ will ship with Android 8.0 Oreo and HTC Sense, and both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa will be pre-installed.

As far as features go, the HTC U11 Life has a 5.2-inch 1080p HD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor, and two variants: one with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in storage, and one with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of built-in storage. Up front is another 16MP snapper for selfies and video calls. On the other hand, the front camera comes with an 8MP camera with 85-degree lenses. Both sensors have the same f/2.0 aperture, which is wide enough for enhanced performance in low-light conditions. There's also a microSD card slot should you need to add more. Although it's a pity that HTC moved the DAC out of the phone (it's in the bundled USB-C to audio jack dongle) this year, it still lives up to billing as one of the best out of the box sound experiences on the market. That includes the Edge Sense technology as well with a new circular menu option now on offer as well to launch your most used apps.

The HTC U11 Plus is a bigger version of the existing HTC U11, with a larger 6in 18:9 aspect ratio edge-to-edge display and a number of upgrades and tweaks to its spec line-up.
