thl-t11-mtk6592THL has put out a couple of great phones with the THL W200S and the THL T200C, but excellence may be right around the corner with the THL T11. The THL T11 is about as square as square gets, has 2GB RAM, 16GB storage, 2750mA battery and 720p. Let’s get in depth.

Looks

Awesome that 2014 isn’t 2013 in the looks departments. Many China brand phones in 2013 followed suit by copying the feminine, rounded corners of the Samsung S3 and Note 2. In 2014, Samsung squared things up a bit and the China brands have gotten right in line.

The THL T11 takes it a step further by making their recent flagship models truly square. The THL T11 appears to have a very similar if not the same chassis as the THL T100S (Iron Man / Monkey King 2).

RAM & Storage

Whereas 2GB in 2013 was infrequently implemented in 2013, 2GB is becoming much more common in 2014. The THL T11 has 2GB RAM and 16GB storage. Some may wonder where the other 16GB went. Why not make it 32GB. Given that the phone can accept addon SD storage, 16GB+SD is generous and should be plenty enough even for power users.

Frequency Support

Current news is that the THL T11 will have 850/1900/2100MHz WCDMA. If it turns out to be true, this phone will be compatible with 3G nearly worldwide. Most places in Europe and Asia have 2100MHz support, and in America  most 3G is currently on 850 and 1900. Very much looking forward to seeing if the current buzz turns to fact.

Resolution & LCD

The T11 is 720p, which in our opinion is plenty for a 5.0″ screen. It’s not retina, but it’s only one step behind and in many cases the difference between 720p and 1080p are impossible to tell. The price difference, performance gain and battery saving benefits of 720p over 1080p are well worth the negligible difference in smoothness between the two on a 5.0″ LCD. We really have to hand it to THL for not falling in with the pack and making this phone 1080p.

Battery

Currently shops are listing this phone as having a 2750mA battery. One of the downsides of the MT6592 SoC this season has been the poor battery life in many of their released models. If the battery size ends up as reported, combined with the 720p LCD, this should add up to excellent battery life and will add a huge plus to the already long list of positives for the THL T11.

Special features

The THL T11 has been listed on many sites as having Gorilla Glass, NFC and OTG. Given that most even half-way decent phones in 2014 have been released with OTG, we’re assuming the THL T11 will at least have OTG.

We must take a minute to send THL a bit of a spank in the rump for not being better at listing all upcoming and currently released phones properly on their official site. The China brand market has come a long way over the last couple years, but have a ways to go to really reach acceptable standards in many areas. Having properly listed specs is a bare minimum and would take an intern 10 minutes per phone to whip up, but THL seems can’t be bothered with it. Shame on you THL.

THL T11 review specification verdict

We’ve recently had the H9008 with quad-band WCDMA, but the THL T11 may be the first China brand 5.0″ with 1900. This is a huge step forward if more China phones can begin to include 1900. It isn’t set in stone yet, but we’re hoping the current buzz turns out to be solid info.

The huge (for a 5.0″) 2750mA battery, if it turns out to be true, is a giant plus for this phone. Add on 720p LCD instead of 1080p which gives price and battery savings, and performance gain is another big plus.

The awesome looks and sub-$250 price tag are just icing on the cake for the THL T11. Are you excited yet? This phone has us all giddy and is one of the few models we can’t wait to get our hands on. We should have an unboxing of this phone coming up shortly. Hopefully we’ll be able to prove the 1900MHz and battery size to be true.
