HTC, unfortunately, is in poor condition. Its sales are falling every quarter. Recently HTC is reported the worst in 15 years monthly revenue.
Frankly, I find it hard to understand why everything is so bad. Yes, the normal public sector HTC has never really had much, but not she one. And the flagships are not only interesting, but also very original.
But today is not about flagship, and a model U12 Life. This is probably one of the few mainstream smartphones HTC, which really does not pull to call overrated. Start with the most interesting. Look at the design.
Yes, there is something and X from iPhone, and from Google Pixel, but in General, because it looks unusual. And visible stripes is not a painting. This laser engraving. The depth of the grooves is 0.3 mm. Except that they have a decorative function, they are still useful: a smartphone will be less slip in the hand. It is of interest that the casing is actually plastic! Yes, it seems that it is glass but it is plastic. And, I’m not sure that’s a bad thing. The glass certainly looks cool, but it’s too fragile. And here is a practical and beautiful plastic. When’s the last time you saw a beautiful plastic smartphone?
Now to the settings. From the flagship there is almost nothing left, but U12 Life is quite good. Here Snapdragon 636, 4/6 GB of RAM and 64/128 GB of flash memory, which is more than enough for most users. The main camera on the 16 and 5 Megapixel frontalka — 13 MP. Accum here on 3600 mAh, and it’s funny, because U12+ 100 mAh less. The six-inch display, but the resolution was reduced to 2160 x 1080 pixels. Yes, cut everything else no thanks HTC.
Any specific features and technologies here, but the price — 330-350 euros. Of course, in comparison with all sorts of Xiaomi is very expensive, but the Asus ZenFone 5 with similar options is about the same.
