HTC U11 vs Samsung Galaxy S8: Comparison Of Newly Released Flagships
To mark its 20th anniversary, HTC has already unveiled U11 as its new flagship phone. The HTC U11 is titled as the world's first-ever "squeezable" smartphone, which gives users a new way to interact with their mobile device. As of today, Samsung Galaxy S8 is the reigning best smartphone of 2017. However, with the unique feature offered by the HTC's flagship phone, will the supremacy be transferred?
Design And Display Comparison
HTC U11 and Samsung Galaxy S8 kicked their aluminum and plastic prototypes to the curb for an all-glass design pattern on the front and back, then metal frames in between. According to TechRadar, HTC U11 doesn't follow the trend of a smartphone having an all-screen. It just sticks with the tried-and-true front-fingerprint sensor home button. Both devices are the best-looking smartphones from each company, but Samsung's "Infinity Display" gives a larger display.
The edges of the HTC U11 are pressure-sensitive. Thanks to its squeezable feature, a user is able to squeeze the phone in order to launch a certain application from either the home or lock screen, as long as it is installed. The so-called "Edge Sense" technology does have some useful purposes and it gives the device a unique selling point over the Galaxy S8.
Galaxy S8 has 5.8-inch Quad HD+ display, which is roughly the same size as the Galaxy S7. The fingerprint sensor is on the back of the phone and offset from the rear camera. On the other hand, HTC U11 has a 5.5-inch Quad HD screen. The fingerprint scanner is still located on the front part.
Other Significant Comparisons
HTC U 11 has top hardware and a collection of interesting features that aren’t available on other smartphones. According to BGR, HTC's flagship phone is able to outperform not just Galaxy S8 but Google Pixel and Nexus phone, too! In fact, the HTCHTC U11 got 90 points in its thorough camera review, which is a score that headed to top the former leading device.
Samsung and HTC are beginning to launch brand new designs for their respective smartphones. The Korean tech giant produced a lot with its first-ever all screen phone, while the Taiwan-based company is trying to promise users more unique features. Both are worthy to buy and try since the two smartphones have the real bomb on their own.
