As someone using HTC's last phone allowed to be sold in SG via telco, the U11 Plus, I can somewhat say that three things U20 5G can be attractive to me:

- NOT OLED Display (it's a huge visual pain for persons with serious Astigmatism), what's the use of vibrant colours when it taxes your eyes worse than GST taxes your wallet?
- 6.8-inch screen, rare to have such a size. Even flagships tend to go no more than 6.6 inches. And those used to BIG phones always DO NOT even think of putting in pockets (they usually have a dedicated carry case for devices of such a size, like I had for Asus Zenpad 8.0 TABLET phone).
- Though this time HTC decides to use a "Semi Premium" (coined by its own maker Qualcomm no less!) SD765G instead of a flagship SD865 SoC, it still can be a equal match to the SD845 or SD835 chipset for those upgrading from these two (U11+ is powered by SD835 btw), but thing is, even Google's Pixel 5th Gen have also planning to "downgrade" their processor one rung to pursue higher processor efficiency than raw power nowadays. "Premium" features like Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0 are fortunately built into in the "Semi Premium" classes as well.

And like it or not, the flagship 800 Series are going to be like the smartphone equivalents of Intel's K-type or AMD's X-type CPUs for computers, unlocked and overclocked, and in turn, extremely pricey in the near future and probably appear in either ultra-expensive foldable handsets (SGD$1,400+ w/o contract) OR gaming-grade phones (think ASUS ROG Phone or Xiaomi Blackshark kind of devices).

And lest I forgot to mention, the U20 5G is the first announced phone to sell in Taiwan, with 5G capabilities, priced <NT$20,000 each. Similar-specced 5G ready phones at that time would cost anywhere upwards of NT$30,000 each. Price for U20 5G is fixed at NT$18,990 (around SGD898), cheaper than U11+'s launch price of NT$21,990 (SG launch price: $998 w/o contract) when it was launched back in 2017.

I have been using U11+ for a long time and the camera was disappointing for me. Its time for an upgrade! Hopefully a telco brings it in.

Surprised to hear that U11+ the phone camera is so bad but I find the U12+ phone camera is very good.

Probably because they moved their Service Centre again, to Toa Payoh so it's harder for them to keep track of developments.

Might join you soon! Can give some reviews after using it? Is it heavy or bulky? I'm still holding on my U12+ after 2 years :)
