Don’t expect completely different devices, these two phones are similar enough to make this comparison challenging. We like the design and the build quality of HTC U11 EYEs better, which is more beautiful and it is also waterproof, unlike its opponent. On the other hand, in terms of display and hardware Oppo R11s is better. It has a very nice AMOLED display and a more powerful SoC. The Snapdragon 660 is a more recent, powerful and efficient chipset compared with the Snapdragon 652. The camera departments are both really good and, until we see some camera samples of HTC U11 EYEs, we can not judge the handset’s camera (it has just been unveiled, so it is still not possible to see how it captures photos).

Even though HTC U11 EYEs has a dual selfie camera, Oppo R11s should make better selfies with its 20 MP resolution and its f/2.0 aperture. Both the devices feature facial recognition through the front camera, but HTC U11 EYEs might be safer thanks to its secondary sensor. HTC U11 EYEs should have a much longer battery life due to its 3930 mAh lithium unit, while its opponent has just an average battery with a 3200 mAh capacity. While HTC U11 EYEs has just been made available to pre-order with a price of about €500, Oppo R11s has a listing price of about €450. I would personally pick the HTC U11 EYEs because of its bigger battery, its more interesting build quality, IP67 certification, and Android Oreo installed out of the box.
