How to do Soft Reset and Hard Reset on HTC U11

HTC U11 is one of the flagship smartphone whose presence was predicted to shake the dominance of iPhone and Samsung in East Asian market. With the codename Ocean, this sophisticated mobile phone is presented in a unibody form. Using aluminum as the main body material makes this phone lightweight as well as powerful. This product has also earned IP67 certification, a certification that ensures the resilience of a mobile phone product to exposure to water and dust.

Some new features are presented in this phone. One of them is Edge Sense feature that is quite interesting for most people. This feature allows each user to run many features just by touching the side of the handset. This feature shortens the time in running the phone; so many observers conclude that U11 is a phone with “smart body”. The function run depends on how long the hand squeezes or presses the body. Back on Edge Sense feature, what distinguishes it with similar features in other phones is its compatibility with Alexa and Google Assistant. But keep in mind that this compatibility is only available for products sold in three countries; United States, United Kingdom, and Germany.
