REVIEW battery inside, around a third larger than most regular flagships. HTC is claiming up to 25 hours of talk time and more than a day of usage. As alluded to, the coil you can see on the translucent model isn’t wireless charging. It’s NFC so you’ll charge via USB-C and there’s Quick Charge 3.0 support so you can top the battery up, er, quickly. We’ve found battery life to be strong with the U11+ comfortably lasting a day of even heavy usage. Software As you’d expect, the U11+ comes with Android 8.0 Oreo which is the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system. HTC Sense is the firm’s custom user interface over the top, but like many these days it’s not as far removed from stock compared to how things used to be. The interface has things like HTC’s news feed instead of Google and supports both Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. There’s also HTC’s Sense Companion, which on the whole we find more annoying than it is useful – especially on top of services like Google that are already pretty polished. The U11+ comes preloaded with a few apps, some of HTC’s own like Viveport as well as the likes of Facebook and Instagram. You can uninstall the ones you don’t want, though. With such a large screen, HTC has considered the user and has made it so you don’t have to reach the top to pull the notification bar down. You can swipe anywhere, which is a relief. 44 TECH ADVISOR • MAY 2018

REVIEW HTC Sense Companion Another feature on the U11+ is a shortcut wheel called Edge Launcher, which you can summon with Edge Sense. Apps and quick settings can be added to this and it can be moved around for convenience. It also shows the calendar at the top and it’s one of the most useful thing we’ve experienced with Edge Sense. You’ll just need to set it as the action in the Edge Sense setting as the default is camera. You can do plenty of other things with Edge Sense such as power on/off, take a screenshot, open and close the notification draw and even toggle your Wi-Fi hotspot. You can also switch to an advanced mode that allows for two functions, the second accessed via a squeeze and hold. There are also in-app uses for Edge Sense such as snoozing alarms, writing a new email or zooming in on a map. Generally, though, the regular method for MAY 2018 • TECH ADVISOR 45
