HTC U12 Plus: Hot or not? (Poll of the Week)

Is the HTCU12 Plus worth paying attention to, or do you think it's overrated?

Published onMay 28, 2018

Last week’s poll summary: Out of over 2,600 total votes, 83.1 percent of our readers said fast wired charging is more important than wireless charging, while 16.9 percent said they’d rather have wireless charging. The results were similar on our social pages. 91 percent of YouTube voters, 87 percent of Twitter voters, and 87 percent of Instagram voters all said they prefer fast wired charging over wireless charging.

Judging from initial impressions, it looks like the HTC U12 Plus is turning out to be a necessary step up from the U11. One of our biggest qualms with the U11 was that it looked like a 2015-era smartphone on the front, even though other devices were launching with taller 18:9 screens and smaller bezels. The U12 Plus looks to have finally caught up with the times.

HTC U12 Plus review: You should probably pass

We liked just about everything else about the HTCU11. The camera was superb, battery life was stellar, and Edge Sense provided a useful way to launch apps much faster than before. But how does a company improve on a phone that was already best-in-class?

The jury is still out as to whether or not U11 owners should upgrade to the U12 Plus. For everyone else, HTC’s new phone will likely be a great option if you need a speedy Android device with great cameras. What are your thoughts? Is the HTCU12 Plus worth paying attention to, or do you think it’s overrated? Cast your vote in the poll below, and speak up in the comments if you have anything to add.
