HTC U11+ Review: Performance

By 04:00 Wed, 18 Aug 2021 Comments


HTC U11+ and Snapdragon 835

The HTC U11+ is powered by the Qualcomm's current flagship chip - the Snapdragon 835 (8x Kryo CPU, Adreno 540 GPU). This means HTC has done everything it can do to ensure the U11+ is powerful and we don't expect any surprises. The mainstream version of the U11+ has 6GB Random-Access Memory (RAM) and 128GB storage, though there is a limited model with 4GB Random-Access Memory (RAM) and 64GB storage available in some markets.


Let's start benchmarking with GeekBench 4. No matter if it's a single or multi-core test, the HTC U11+ is on par with the latest flagship flock, Android that is. While the two Mates and the Note8 have inhoutilize developed chips, their performance is still equal to the Snapdragon's. Apple's processors remain unmatched for yet another generation.

The HTC U11+ has a high-res widescreen, which should cripple the performance if compared to phones with Full HD screens and the similar GPU, say OnePlus 5T or Xperia XZs. Still, the U11+ stands equal to the other high-res flagships and that's enough to render it flagship-grade.

The overall performance of the HTC U11+ is top-notch just as the high-discontinue chipset would suggest. The UI is fluid and there are zero stutters, no matter how many apps you're using. Larger apps like heavy games don't even create the U11+ sweat.

We noticed the U11+ gets slightly warm under peak pressure, but nowhere near hot. In fact, despite the glass design, HTC managed to haged the U11+ reasonably cool with just a minor throttling we saw in some benchimprint scores. We guess the dim classy screen is helping, too.
