    I am on the fence about canceling my pre-order and waiting for the Oneplus 5.

    HTC U11 looks like a beautiful device with a great camera and good sound quality but I can't get over the fact that they put such a small battery in the phone. I know the power saving of the 835 and I think overall the phone will get decent battery life but I still feel they missed a chance to place a bigger battery in the phone.

    Whats the battery life going to look like within 6 months to a year with battery degradation

    if the one plus 5 has a slightly bigger battery, more memory and 1080p screen (but a nice one) I'm sure it would get a lot better battery life than the htc u11

    Also all their USB-C audio stuff-from the earphones to the 3.5 to usb c adapter only work on approved HTC devices.

    The whole point of usb c is not to have issues like that. So I'll wait to see about HTC.

    I think it will be the same as every other flagship. 3000 is the going rate this year. I would prefer a little bit thicker phone if it means a bigger battery.

    Well, the battery capacity is same as any other flagship with SD 835 except for S8+.

    It comes down to your personal choice but it seems you should probably give it a chance since you had pre-ordered?

    Only the active noise cancellation part will not work in non-HTC phones, rest is same as any other USB C headphones.

    From what I've heard, battery life is solid.

    You shouldn't have much of an issue getting a day's worth of use on moderate use.

    Just cancelled my preorder as well. I admit to being a bit worried about battery life but the mediocre reviews regarding sound quality through headphones has me spooked (such as the Pocketnow audio review). The main reason I tend to gravitate towards HTC is the memory of the excellent sound from the M7 speakers and the great headphone audio from the HTC 10. If the U11 is not going to live up to past standards, I will take a wait and see approach.

    Very! Just went to findmyorder.com and there is a link to cancel. Within a few hours I got a notice from PayPal that my payment had been refunded.

    How do you look up your order if you used PayPal? It asks for the last four digits

    If it's anything like my 10, it will be awesome. HTC isn't loaded with a whole bunch of crap that constantly uses the battery

    I've been looking up reviews for the U11 and they are saying things like, "impressive battery life" or "good battery life." It's not the biggest battery ever but I think it has the potential to deliver a solid battery life experience. But I guess we don't really know until we can have some real-world testers!

    Thanks! I just cancelled my order as well. I'll wait and see. I think this was more of a impulse buy and than I had buyer's remorse. I have the oneplus 3t and very happy with that.

    Same here. Once the phone is out and I start to see more real life reviews from regular users, I may reconsider if things look (and sound!) good.

    I see numerous complaints about battery size for nearly all mainstream phones that are new. All the complaining in the world is not going to change anything. Money talks.... but even if we were to boycott a particular phone for having a "small" battery... this is not going to change the reality. You can bet that if the OEM's were to make a thicker phone with a larger battery then there would be those who complain that it is too heavy. You cannot win. I remember reading many posts from people saying they would never buy a phone without a removable battery. Welllllll, I guess they no longer use Smart Phones do they? The latest is that they will not buy a phone without a headphone jack. (Personally I hope they KEEP the headphone jack in all phones, because I don't want to mess with recharging bluetooth head sets.) But if the OEM's remove the headphone jack from all new phones... what are we going to do... stop using smart phones? I doubt it. We will adjust because we have no real choice. We are not in control here even though it's our money keeping these companies in business. And while some OEM's may dies on the vine due to stupid decisions, the fact of the matter remains that the OEM's are in control whether we like it or not. Complaining does nothing but to possibly make us feel better. Or so we think!

    The battery life on my HTC 10 is decent. It's like any other flagship phone, when you're in sketchy network, and its searching for signal, it goes through battery fast. When in good coverage or wifi, it last at least all day. The new 835 chip is more efficient and I'm positive it will be at least as good as the 10 and probably better. With quick charging, I just don't worry about it anymore.....

    Seems like all new smartphones with the 835 are getting smaller batteries. In the S8, the battery is the same @3000mah. But it gets tremendous life. I added the u 11 to my list because of the audio prowress. Something that the oneplus 5 will not have. I'm waiting to see what the lg v30 has to offer. Right now I'm using the ZTE axon 7. I doubt I'll find a phone that will beat its audio except the Axon 8. We'll have to see.

    Besides not having bands 29 and 30, another issue for me is the dreaded yellow tinted screen. It took me 3 HTC 10's to finally get one without it. I'm definitely holding out for more user reviews like deng66 mentioned.

    I'm interested, but coming from a Galaxy A5 (battery life champ!), I get the feeling I'll be very disappointed. I've seen reviews that say less than 4 hours of screen on time, while others have been getting close to six. But I don't think there's any reason to cancel a preorder yet. You get thirty days to return in case the OnePlus 5 turns out better.

    I'm with you: I'm going to wait a few months and see what the audio/battery capabilities are like before officially pulling the trigger. What kind of phone are you using now?

    Using the LG G6 now. Had the S8+ for a while but decided I liked the G6 better so I went back to it. I still hope the U11 will turn out to be great and tempt me again but this time I'm going to let some other folks take the first turn at it 😁

    I think Moto Z Play owners are in the same boat. They currently have a lovely 3,500mAh battery but the Moto Z2 play has a 3,000mah. That's a 500mah drop.

    I think, since the HTC 10 and U11 have the same capacity but the processor has been significantly improved, battery life will be solid. 😃

    The OnePlus 5 might be getting a 3,300mah battery so I'm predicting some great stuff from them and it could be worth the wait if you are already a OnePlus customer.
