I'm starting the HTC U11 life test, which seems to be a great mid-range smartphone, and at the same time a worthy competitor for Moto X4.
HTC U11 life seems to be one of the most interesting middle class smartphones that has recently made its debut on the Polish market. His biggest competitor is the Moto X4 I recently tested. Not without reason, the Moto X4 manufacturer decided to reduce the price to PLN 1599 in such a short time after the premiere. But ok, not about Moto X4 is this material. HTC U1 life comes in two variants – with 3GB RAM and 32 GB for data, as well as 4GB RAM and 64-gigabyte memory for data and applications. I received the first variant , which can be called the weaker for illustration. For those interested, they will pay PLN 1499, and the better model will cost PLN 1599. The Taiwanese smartphone has three key features that distinguish it from the competition available not only on the Polish market. It is a smartphone belonging to the Android One program, so it is responsible for its update by Google, not HTC. This is very good information for those interested, because the search engine giant has committed to regularly update the software, at the same time as the Pixel series smartphones. That's why the HTC U11 life works under the control of the almost pure Android 8.0 Oreo, in which HTC added two features – Edge Sense and HTC USonic , which will appreciate the lovers of new technologies and those who like listening to music on the headset. These are not new features that were introduced with HTC U11 life, but their presence significantly increases the attractiveness of this model. And if from the squeezing of the screen rather I will not use too often, the dedicated headset will always be in my ears, if of course it will be possible. And that's because at this moment (I have not tested the LG V30 yet) I have not had the pleasure of using the better headset attached to the device. The sound is immaculately clean, and the bass is incredibly soft. You can not be indifferent to the standards of communication, which, for a smartphone from 2017, are modern – Bluetooth 5.0, dual band WiFi, or NFC and USB type C.As for the components used, it is good – typical for the device mid-range , hence Qualcomm Snapdragon 630, FHD display, 2600 mAh battery, active fingerprint reader, as well as a 16MP camera and a watertight housing. And as far as the housing is concerned, I must admit that HTC U11 life in blue looks phenomenal and arouses interest. Corning Gorilla Glass was used for production (no information on the generation). That's it from me when it comes to the first impressions of quickly regarding HTC U11 life. I'm taking on tests, and if you're interested in this model, or have any questions – write in the comments .
