    I really want one, but have read that it's probably the most delicate device out there.

    I have a case and no front screen protection. No issues at all.

    It is glass and can break so a case is essential.

    Splindedly, no issues at all but I haven't been super rough with it. Spigen case, plastic screen protector. I was worried for the first week, but not now.

    Same here. Haven't looked back after getting the Spigen Liquid Crystal case.

    It's no more delicate than the S8, G6 or any other glass phones so nothing specific to HTC. It's fine using without a case but all you need is one bad moment anytime to drop it and crack the glass. So if you put on a decent case on the back or even use the bundled case you should be good.

    The reason I asked is because I've read many reviews that, for some reason, the U11 was very prone to cracks and breaks moreso than other devices.

    I have the S8 and XZ premium along with U11 all glass devices and been using them for a some time now. Haven't seen or feel one being more prone to cracks etc. So it's a concern IMO honestly, same glass phone concerns of cracking when dropped etc but nothing unusual.

    My biggest thing with phones today -- all phones, not just glass-backed ones -- is that I just don't put them in my pockets. Maybe I look really geeky with a holster strapped to my waist, but it seems to me that most of these "didn't drop it!" instances of cracked glass and such involve putting them in a pocket.

    Simply put, it's always seemed like the stresses caused by putting a device in a pocket -- particularly in tight pants -- just can't be good.

    Curiosity is getting the best of me... What reviews are saying that the u11 is very prone to cracks and breaks more than any other glass phone?

    I've seen one review (can't remember where) the main problem is since the 3D curved glass meets the metal frame there is NO give when it's banged or dropped, etc.
    Personally i'll chance it because this is the only phone out there that has EVERYTHING I look for in a phone.
