  • HTC is the first company to make a semi-transparent cellphone.

  • They dropped a translucent black option onto their U11 Plus model, which is a huge step

  • in the right direction for nerds who like to see inside the expensive tech they are

  • paying for.

  • I kept waiting for HTC to release this phone in the USA, but it's still currently unavailable.

  • When Squarespace offered to sponsor a video, I knew immediately what phone I wanted to

  • check out.

  • Let's get started.

  • [Intro]

  • And here it isthe translucent black HTC U11 Plus.

  • And while it is semi-transparent, it's still much darker than I anticipated.

  • I guess that's why they call it a translucent black.

  • I'll bump up the exposure on my camera so you can see all the details inside the phone.

  • The one prominent feature is the copperish looking coils that peek through the center

  • of the glass.

  • While easily mistaken for wireless charging, these are actually just the NFC coils for

  • payments or transferring files via near field communication to other devices within a few

  • inches.

  • Personally, I think HTC could have made the glass a bit more see-through...you know?

  • So let's see if we can help them out a little bit.

  • Removing the back panel is pretty similar to all the other glass back smartphones like

  • Samsung or LG...not the new iPhone though.

  • That piece of glass can buzz right on out of here.

  • After the HTC U11 is warm, I can lift up with a suction cup and slip my metal pry tool between

  • the glass edge and the middle frame and work my way around the edges with a piece of paper

  • to not put too much pressure on the curved glass.

  • The reason the U11 partially failed my durability test was because the metal frame and the screen

  • glass have no cushion between the two layers.

  • Metal isn't very forgiving during drops or bends, and the glass shatters.

  • Paper is much more forgiving than my metal pry tool, so I'm using that to slice through

  • the adhesive and it's working just fine.

  • Finally the translucent back can lift off.

  • I'll unplug the fingerprint scanner with my blue pry tool.

  • And check it outthe phone is revealed.

  • It's interesting that the glass is semi-translucent in the center, and then gradients out to black

  • pretty quickly around the edges.

  • When I first saw this phone I was pretty excited about the wireless charging being so epically

  • prominent and prevalent...but it's just NFCno wireless charging option.

  • It's still cool looking of course, but wireless charging would have much more substantial

  • copper inside to handle the induction.

  • Looking closer at the back glass, it almost has a green tint to it as the color gets darker

  • around the edges.

  • Revealing tech from the inside has it's perks.

  • It looks good, don't get me wrong, but let's show HTC what a real transparent phone looks

  • like.

  • I'll pop off the fingerprint scanner and the camera lens frame from the underside of the

  • glass, and then I can start scratching away the color.

  • Normally with a glass back LG or Samsung phone, this would either pull off in one big chunk

  • or some industrial paint thinner would help remove the color.

  • But HTC is using a different laminate layer material that left some pretty heavy residue

  • on the glass, even after the laminate coloring is gone.

  • I like to get a little bit of a grip on the laminate by scraping away with my razor and

  • then using heat to soften the laminate and pull it up off the glass.

  • I don't have to worry about my razor blades scratching the glass because a razor is a

  • level 5 on Mohs Scale, and glass won't scratch till level 6.

  • You can see the hefty amount of residue left on the glass right here.

  • I thought paint thinner might help get this off, but it's pretty invincible gunk.

  • The only thing that really worked was a whole lot more scraping.

  • And some glass cleaner.

  • Even after the laminate is pulled off the glass, it still has a tinted mirror-like finish

  • to it, which I'm fine with.

  • I think it looks pretty sweet.

  • I'll get the camera lens put back into place, along with the plastic flash defuser.

  • I'm going to leave the black plastics intact this time around, since it kind of goes with

  • the darker tinted aesthetics of the phone...but clear plastics have been around for a hundred

  • years.

  • So if HTC really wants to make a transparent phone on their next device, all the way down

  • to the circuit boards, I'm sure they could.

  • Kind of like the clear Nintendo Switch mod.

  • While I put adhesive around the square of the phone, let's talk about Squarespace for

  • a second.

  • Huge thanks to them for sponsoring this video and making this teardown possible.

  • Squarespace is an easy to use website builder.

  • The cool thing with Squarespace is that all of their tools are in one spot - buying the

  • domain, the hosting, and even the templates for building a website.

  • Whether you want your resume online or you're building a legitimate online storefront with

  • products and inventory, Squarespace can handle it, and it never needs to be updated.

  • You get 10% off your purchase by heading to squarespace.com/jerryrig.

  • And speaking of being updated, how do you like the new updated transparent glass of

  • the U11 Plus?

  • I do like now that we can see more of the internal antennas and the massive 3930 milliamp

  • hour battery.

  • Huge thumbs up to HTC for pushing the boundaries in phone design and taking official steps

  • to make the fully transparent phone we all want.

  • Check out Squarespace if you need a website, and thanks a ton for watching.

  • I'll see you around.

HTC is the first company to make a semi-transparent cellphone.
