Are HTC Phones Good?
HTC makes good phones in flagship segment, but if you are looking in the mid-range, then HTC phones are not good, you have several good mid-rangers in the market.
Here are some Pros and Cons of HTC flagship devices in general;
- Sound: HTC phones have very good Audio quality via Earphones and speakers with their trademark HTC Boom sound. In their recent HTC models like; U11, U play and U ultra, the company ditched the headphone jack, but they came up with the HTC sense sound, which can optimize the music experience as per your ear shape and the earphones you get in the box is top quality with active noise cancellation.
- Display: Even though they are not as good as Samsung flagships, but still the best in the market.
- Camera: The rear camera in HTC U 11 (which is released in India this week) is top in DXO mark for now. In fact, it overtook last year Pixel phone. Even in the U ultra, it excelled.
- Build Quality: The company was making (yes, was) phones with solid build quality till HTC 10. The recent models, they shifted to the ceramic-glass combination, which is indeed not as durable as the metal body. It looks good in hands, but you need to be extra careful as they are prone to scratch & smudge and fragile in nature.
- Software: HTC has introduced HTC sense in this year and company said it will be competition to the Google Assistant. But as of now, it’s a half-baked product, we need to wait until the software matures. As far UI is considered, it’s clean and smooth.
Now, we will come to the Con. The only Con I see with HTC is their pricing and poor marketing, that’s why HTC phones are not popular among people like Samsung, especially in India. I am not sure about the service quality of HTC.
So, to conclude if you love music and camera is your preference then you can go for HTC mobile. If you ask me the model in specific, then it will be its newly launched HTC U 11.
