i disagree, the u12+ camera even against the u11+ GCAM is better, the u11+ insists on over exposing white areas even with GCAM while the u12+ has exemplary dynamic range and in many ways destroys GCAM, video quality is nearly flawless and the seflie is also better than most phones

look the phone i use all the time and i LOVE is the snapdragon s10, even though the fingerprint scanner is flawed, but its smooth / fast enough to run even in CPU battery saver all the time, the s10 is flawless 60fps for me something i can not say for the u12+ but why do i carry the u12+ with me everyday as a secondary? its the camera, it can not beat the s10 camera in GCAM but it does win the video and selfie battle

After 13 years HTC with all their top devices and quite active in the HTC community here I took the leap and got myself a Xiaomi MI 9T Pro 128Gb.
My U11 will still stay for a while with me but it is on LineageOS (even Edge functions are working perfectly) because of the lack of general updates and security updates from HTC.
I will maybe not upgrade it to HTC's Pie Rom.
After more than a week my conclusion is that the 9T Pro is the device HTC had to come with.
Very well build, excellent screen, excellent price level and stunning performance and it's size is very close to the U11 size.
It is running on Global EU version stock and only thing I modded is using Nova Prime as launcher to get some of the Sense feel back.
Probably I won't even unlock it because the stock Rom is that good and it would be for the first time in 13 years I would not unlock a phone!!
Oh and SOT's are excellent like this one after 50% battery usage (no gaming though):

You may have used a Gcam apk that is not much compatible with the U11+ because the dynamic range is excellent while the U12+ tends to overexpose images a bit (by default) which i prefer in some cases as it brightens the scene.

Selfie is ok with the u12+ as long as you are in a well-lit environment. Gcam still rules in lowlight as usual.

Video, yes, I agree. Gcam video is only useful to devices (like the Moto Z3 Play) that do not have OIS.

Just holding and squeezing the U12+ and the ease of use makes it just as good as the S10+.

Don't get me wrong, I appreciate all the extra features. But don't use them. I'm not gonna be charging other losers phones with my phone. If they have a high end phone with wireless charging they should be just fine without me.

Seems like Samsung could have added more mics before the note 10. But of course they couldn't have done it without HTC. Maybe that's why the Note 10 left out the headphone jack. 3 mics is better than one but not better than 4. Lol

The build quality, feel and gorgeous look of the U12+ is so much better than the S10+ and the camera is still much better. Plus I can still use Google phone. In a reality world the Samsung can list more features but doesn't mean they are worth anything.

I got a kick out of a story I heard of someone using Apple or Samsung pay for their wallet and their battery died LMFAO. Dude didn't have a real wallet so he had to talk the clerk into letting him open a charger that he would have to buy as soon as he charged his phone enough to pay for his cart LMAO.

My beloved U11 has charging issue, I ordered a charging port to try to replace it. As a plan B, I started looking for another phone. I really like the active edge to launch camera and to take pictures. With that in mind, I am restricted to HTC and Pixel I guess... I am looking at Pixel 3a, and maybe Pixel 4 when it comes out next month. Any suggestions or experiences to share w/ the Pixel line?

Unfortunately, there is nothing much to talk about these days. I'm just enjoying my time with the U12+ and excited to switch to Motorola One Zoom or iPhone 11 Pro

I wish I could switch soon since the U12+ is one of the few HTC phones with mediocre battery.
