lost me at no headphone jack :C
Coming back to this video after taking the risk buying one four months ago, and the U12+ has turned out excellent after some, er, "adjustments". They fixed the buttons and made the haptic response sharper, and it actually feels "cool" now with no delay. I can hand the phone to anyone, including children, and the buttons just work and they don't even ask about them. Battery life was not good out of the box, but they apparently changed something. I now leave work with the phone around 70%, and I'm a lunchtime YouTube junkie.The dual front cameras are for more than Bokeh. The cameras are used to create a 3 dimensional depth map of your face, and it works well enough that I use it for 80% of my unlocks, and 20% for the FP reader when it's inconvenient to point the phone at my face.The main camera is nice and fast and does very well. We are mostly an iPhone family and own the 6, 7, 8 Plus, and XS Max (my poor wallet!). The only iPhone we have that can hold a candle to the U12+ is the XS Max. The others are hopelessly outclassed, and my son who is a professional photographer gave up doing comparisons with his 8 Plus. The U12 is that good. I got a shock last night playing with the U12+ camera, and got photos that could rival Google's night sight, bit you have to use pro mode and know what you are doing.Performance is a plus to the plus. HTC is pretty good at tuning, but I did not expect the 845 in the U12 to be faster than the 855 in the S10. Not benchmarks, but real world use. It's not a shock though, because the U11 was faster than the S9. It's not a deal breaker by any means for someone that wants the S10, but I thought it was interesting. Gaming is one area that the U12+ stands out, and I have a girl that shows up just about every day for phone gaming sessions (which is beginning to annoy my wife!), and her iPhone overheats doing the same thing that the U12 handles with ease. Three times this month she had to let the phone cool down after doing Riptide GP2 or Leo's Fortune.Oh, forgot to mention sound! USonic earbuds. I'm a recording engineer, and I live with knowing some details and nuances in my work will probably go unnoticed by the general public. Normal headphones cannot reproduce the sound you get standing at a million dollar console in a commercial recording studio. HTC's USonic is the only thing I've heard that can come close, and it was a complete mind job for someone with my experience. The clarity, spatial imaging, crazy bass extension to frequencies that seem impossible. It will take you a week or so to get over the mind bending capabilities of USonic, and probably two weeks to get out of the habit of touching tables and walls to see if they are vibrating to the music.
Would be a good idea enable scrolling effects on the power button and use it to give the camera more features.. Figure out how to stitch the dual camera to have both active at once and use it for panorama
Oh god the graphics in the video is amazing.
Plus the squeeze feature is giving me arthritis
Fuck this shit I can't hold this damn phone without turning it off. Why the fuck would they put touch buttons on the side???
wheres the other htc phone
These buttons will make you fall in love with after a month of using, in terms of camera and usability features its the best phone on the market so far, the only minus is battery and price
I love htc
The same goes with Sony, yeah HTC is a really good brand it can't be beat.
Totally a forgotten phone, I'm watching this on my HTC 10 red camellia
Looks like a V30 (back)
Your review is so picky
I bought this phone and then chose to downgrade back to my u11 because the buttons suck. You can only change the volume while holding the phone. So when I watch things with my phone on my stand it's useless.
Watching from s10+, that phone looks like shit. Horrible
The perfection made phone.
'Great camera, one of the best balblabla'When I look back at my old M9 wich was constantly shitted on for having only an 'ok' camera, at least I had much more fun with actual details in every picture, while now the pictures aren't even worth zooming in..
History Tradition Ceremony Great Thanks
Gonna get a phone. between this are Huawei mate pro 20.... which one to get?
Watching from HTC One E8
No headphone jack?! Yet another htc I'll pass on. With that price I can pay my mortgage AND buy an LG Stylo 4+.
Bring front facing speakers back
Jesus!It is a Disease in the review world...and it is the same one.Lick the boots of the ones with money, the "big ones", do not upset the "big ones" users because it means less subscribers and trash everything in between
why are all phones now plastic and glass .... i prefer metal ones like this one but sadly htc is just messing up
RIP HTC . Probably last htc made commercial flagship phone.
HIT OR MISS 5:11
I guess they never miss, huh?
I swear. I'm in the market for a new phone and I was looking around and I kept asking myself. Where are the LG's, Motorola's, Nokia's and Huwuei. So happy to see that HTC is still around. I'm still rocking my HTC Desire and the only downside is the internal memory. I'm purchasing this soon! Thank you for the feedback.
LCD instead of OLED and mediocre battery means I'll be moving on from the HTC 10 to probably Huawei P20 pro or oneplus 6t, since the iPhone XS is too expensive.
I hated my HTC 10. AWFUL battery, LCD screen, very low brightness.I switched to an iphone X and a year later the battery is still amazing, and its just a much better phone.
I am using my eighth HTC phone believe me this phone is an addiction........
Well this guy can never appreciate HTC with open heart......i do not know why.........
Lol u12+'s camera is way better. So underrated.
What’s the point of pressure sensitive buttons imitating real buttons, than actual real buttons
never ever again any of htc phone, waste of money and time, good review
Apa cuma gw doang yg suka hp ini dari indo???Yg indo pasti komen :P
GET UNSUBSCRIBED TO HIM
Id Rather Buy Gaming laptop.
Not m10 just " 10 "
I may get OCD or at the school he's not going to happen! Saw the review for u 11 working either but a much better find. I love my old HTC it works with my brain issue is I can't get another one ..in desperate need of the HTC m10 Unless I do ebay..and spend way more than it's worth considering I don't know if it's going to get updates it's a dunk dunk
They could add virtual button's for both volume and to lock phonThey don't need to add all thisIt could save money as well as some space in smartphone
