    Just got the 6GB RAM/128GB Storage variant of this phone and after using it for 2 days here are my impressions:

    - The form factor is nice, traditional fingerprint scanner on the front embedded in the home button
    - Battery life is better than the Galaxy S8 even though they both have the same capacity @ 3000mAH but Samsung's standby time on every phone I've ever owned is horrible so this gives the HTC U11 the edge in that department in addition to its booster app that comes preinstalled on the phone which helps you take controlling apps battery usage and setting them to auto sleep the moment you exit them to another level.
    - I love the UI, it's like stock Android, no double apps like on the Samsung phones where you have an app for something by Google then you have another one from Samsung like the Calendar, notes, etc.
    - The phone's Edge Sense (squeeze feature) is awesome to launch your favorite app as a shortcut, I set mine to launch the Camera with a small squeeze and launch the flashlight with a long squeeze
    - The speakers are some of the best on any smartphone, very loud and clear and they included very high quality headphones in the box
    - It is one of the fastest phones I've owned with a 0 lag factor thanks to its Snapdragon 835 CPU and Adreno 540 GPU
    - The Rear facing camera is one of the best out there, on par with the Galaxy S8 but with less over saturated images giving you a more close to real life photo although the front facing camera lacks OIS.

    Note: Currently there is no 60FPSs Video recording but HTC says that is coming in a future update

    You mean 4Kf60 isn't present or intentionally disabled to get thermals down as low as possible?

    No 60 FPS on any mode be it 1080P or 4K. HTC promised it's coming in a software update, they might have done that to keep thermals down but I'd prefer the phone to throttle or give me a warning than not having the option

    Are they promising Stock Android w/ updates or will they leave it in the dust once newer model ships?
    Or even adaptive video recording that throttle to 1080p from 4K.

    Okay. Final question: So, will you keep it or return it?
