Where to buy HTC U11 Life
Design and Display
HTC U11 is not so big as it measures 149.1 x 72.9 x 8.1 mm. Being small, does not limit its unique features, as it shows off an elegant body design with an acrylic glass build. It has an IP67 rating that makes it resistant to liquid and dust for a certain period of time and circumstance. With the 5.2-inch full HD display that you find on this device, you can expect a massive viewing experience. There is also an unspecified Corning Gorilla Glass for screen protection and Super LCD technology to maximize your viewing display.
Camera and Battery
It might be cheaper, but it doesn’t lag that far behind, with the 16 MP camera at both front and back. Both of these, have an aperture ƒ/2.0 and other features that includes auto focus, LED flash etc. The battery capacity seems to be one disappointing feature of the HTC U11 Life device. As you can rely on a 2600 mAh battery for power.
Hardware and Software
HTC U11 Life has a variant to its base model that packs 3GB RAM memory and 32GB ROM. The variant sports an improved 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM, but both have the same processor grade. That is, they both come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor clocking at 2.2 GHz CPU speed. HTC U11 Life, boots the latest Android 8.0 Oreo operating system with HTC Sense UI. It also features an impressive Edge Sense technology by the manufacturers themselves.
The price of HTC U11 Life is within the range of N130,000 – N200,000.
