HTC U11 Life specs: 5.2-inch display, 2600mAh battery, and Snapdragon 630

HTC is continuing the U11 brand with the new lower-end U11 Life, but it sure isn't re-using any of the flagship's components. With a launch price of $349, the HTC U11 Life is constrained quite a bit in its specs, meaning we're looking at a few corners shaved here and there — but there are a few other additions that are nice to see in an inexpensive device.

  • Not bad at all.
  • Not good at all.
  • These various versions of Android One are the phones that will be my fall back phone or traveling phone.
  • For a mid-range phone, it's not bad. I just ordered one off T-mobile, my carrier, for the 300/12 month for 24 month deal. I have the original HTC One, which is 5 years old and when it came out cost twice as much. My HTC ONe (m7) is at EOL on Android 5.0. Time to upgrade without spending a mortgage payment on a phone.
