Review: HTC U11 Life for T-Mobile
The HTC U11 Life looks and mostly performs like a flagship smartphone, at half the cost. HTC did a great job designing an attractive, affordable handset that comes across as a high-end piece of hardware.
Beyond its stunning looks, the U11 Life is comfortable to use, has a decent screen, delivers fine wireless performance, and sounds great when it comes to calls and music. I wish battery life were a bit better. It's a bummer that the phone doesn't have a headphone jack, but the included earbuds are actually very good. The waterproofing is an added bonus.
HTC's user interface works well, even if it takes some tweaking to fine-tune. I like how quickly the camera app performs, and it delivers the goods when it comes to taking photos and videos. The Edge Sense tool can be useful. I like that HTC includes Alexa on its devices for those who prefer Amazon's assistant over Google's.

For $300, this phone is a steal. Monthly payments with T-Mobile are an easy $12. This is an excellent handset for the money. It competes well with other mid-range devices, such as the Moto X4 and should be a winner for HTC. If you need an inexpensive device that hits way above its weight class, the U11 Life is a lively option.
