Which one should you buy: HTC U11 Life vs Moto X4

Posted November 05, 2017

HTC's "BoomSound" speakers are also included and the phone runs the latest Android 8.0 Oreo operating system (OS) out of the box with the company's Sense UI. On the negative side of things, it does not offer support for the Moto Mods modular accessories. The Life is HTC's first Android One device.

The HTC U11 shares nearly the same hardware as its predecessor, it is rocking the Snapdragon 835 processor paired up with 4 Gigabytes of RAM and 64 Gigabytes of internal storage, there is another model available with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB internal storage.

Fans of dual camera phones will probably prefer the Moto X4 which pairs a 12-megapixel sensor (f/2.0) with an 8-megapixel sensor (f/2.2) with phase detection autofocus and dual-LED flash. The front facing camera has been changed from 16MP to 8MP for the U11 Plus.

HTC is said to have continued developing the phone and then launched it with its own branding and design features.

Moving on to the U11 Life, the phone has inherited the Edge Sense pressure-sensitive frame from the U11 flagship, which lets users squeeze the phone to trigger an action.

We don't know for sure when the HTC U11 Plus will land, but the phone has now been officially unveiled so we know most of the details. But while the HTC U11 Life does not include a 3.5mm headphone jack, the Moto X4 does. Since HTC's smartphone segment got acquired by Google, HTC will produce the upcoming Google smartphones.

The HTC U11 Life is now available from T-Mobile for $350 or you can get it unlocked directly from HTC.com. If you're not, the purchase will take you back with $399. The earbuds feature active noise cancellation and you can even tune them according to your hearing profile to get the best audio experience out of them.

There is still no headphone jack, I guess it is we are moving towards the wireless future. It offers a almost edge-to-edge display, a massive (especially for HTC) 4000mAh battery, and a cool looking model with a translucent case so that you can see some of the components inside the phone.

The battery in the device has a storage capacity of 3939 mAh with quick charge from Qualcomm.
