HTC U11 5 Colours

HTC has announced its newest device, the HTC U11. The phone includes a new feature called ‘Edge Sense,’ the latest innovation in the company’s 20-year history.

Finally seeing the smartphone after weeks of rumours, we now know that the device isn’t bezel-less and doesn’t feature an 18:9 aspect ratio, but does include an all-new squeezable and highly customizable frame.

However, how does it stack up against its competitors? Below we have the HTC U11 facing off against other 2017 flagship Android devices, specifically the Samsung Galaxy S8, LG G6, and the Sony Xperia XZ Premium.
