36170 ratings | 1065364 views
HTC U12+ has no notch, flagships specs and a peculiar lack of real buttons. Worth the money?

I could not use a phone without buttons. That's too weird and spells problems down the road. 😒

I loved my HTC One m8 and I want to love the new HTC phones but all the negatives you bring up with this phone really matters to me. I think I will go with the OP6, because just as you I feel that the features they have sacrificed are not deal breakers for me.

The phone is full of unnecessary shit like they could have given same cool stuff but hey lets give some useless vibrating unclicky buttons and also ask the consumers to squeeze the shit out of the phone... Nicely done htc now plzz sell iff already

Why don't you test the video camera and low light shots?. I don't think you could have accurately judged its performance without it.

Would you consider a follow-up review? I don't know if you had done this or not. However word around online forums now that the phone is arriving to consumers has some insight. The button sensitivity is apparently tied to the short squeeze. Some users are reporting that once a proper calibration of the side squeeze is done. A lot of the "lag" is gone. Your videos are great. And by far your review of the u12 is my favorite. It seems like you actually thought thru every aspect of the phone and gave it not just a personal opinion but logic behind it. Unlike most of the other reviewers who where quick to toss the phone without much of a detailed explanation.

TAKE MY $$$ HTC 😁😁. I went from a Google pixel XL 2016 to a Google pixel 2 "2017" love these spreakers but miss the battery life.

I'm starting to wonder if the sd845 just isn't as efficient as the 835.....seems like all the flagships this year with that processor has had either eh or just barely cutting it battery life.... Weird as hell considering the u11 had amazing battery life with a smaller power pack...

The correct grammar would be 'A phone without buttons'. There was a tv show advertised recently in Austraia where an american guy could stick things to his skin and in the advert he made the statement "and I don't need no glue" which means literally that he needs to use glue.

Very briefly mentioned but when that shit goes wrong and it will you can't just take it back to the store you bought it from as its online only, you are left to deal with HTC customer service and its at that point you'll wish you'd have bought anything but HTC. My U11+ is still away for repair after it was delivered faulty in February, I received a email this week saying it had been moved to escalation. The U11+ screen was awful, it had vertical lines, was hard to see in daylight, the touch and tap gestures are useless when the phone is as smooth and slippery as a bar of wet soap. It also has no headphone jack and the included noise-cancelling dongle just added lots of hiss. If this thing doesnt sell in numbers I can't see there being another HTC flagship.

Didn't HTC also upgrade some video features? They kept that audio zoom focus feature too. Does volume increase/decrease with a long "press" of the volume "button?"

Also, there no reason to buy this with the current V30 price. Get V30, install Google Camera and you have an improved Pixel 2 XL for half the price.

HTC leading sensible innovations as usual. Love the U11+ and this one looks rock solid too. I think HTC doesn't get the accolades they deserve and they need to up their marketing game.

check out Xiaomi Mi 8, awesome phone
vassie66 (5 days ago)
You can just use the "squeeze" function to quickly launch the camera, take a screenshot or take a selfie, highly customisable, unlike other stupid AI button. FYI, S9+ and P20 pro overexpose more than HTC U12+ does when shooting photos and use the power saving mode for God's sake.

I've never been a fan of HTC since the Desire back in the day. However, this phone looks not bad at all. The only issues for me are all of the overkill with shortcuts and there being no headphone jack.

I use to be an HTC fan boy, but after the One M9, I lost my drive for them. I went to iPhone, then to the Pixel 2 XL, and I'm planning on sticking with the Pixel line.

Why NOONE of the reviewers says that it is very expensive and it doesn't worth but everyone says that G7 which is cheaper and better than this should be priced even lower???????????

I used to love HTC. I was a huge fanboy as soon as I saw the M8. However, in my experience, they just aren't reliable. My m8, of which I had 3, all had battery and awful lag issues after about 6 months of use. I then went away from them, and didn't come back until the HTC 10 (HTC M9 was ass, everybody agrees on that). To this day, the 10 was the best HTC I ever owned. It was fast, the battery was pretty good, and it was the first phone I owned that was "quick charge" enabled. Fast forward about a year and it started shutting off and going into a boot loop once the battery hit 20%. Battery issues again. Needless to say I quit buying. I don't trust them anymore.
In my opinion, SENSE is the best costumization by far.
I already buy it, and I fucking love it

I wish they'd get the important things right (battery life, real buttons, headphone jack) before adding so many gimmicky features no one wants. My first few Android phones were HTC, and I loved them. Now, I wouldn't consider buying any of their phones.
