Does the HTC U12 Life look familiar to you? It should. This dual-camera phone has more than a few shades of the Google Pixel 2.

From the front, this midprice phone, which comes in deep purple or blue, has a large, 6-inch screen with a sharp resolution.

You can see the glass pane bisecting the back.

An 18:9 screen ratio means thin bezels all around, especially on the sides.

There's a fingerprint reader on the back, and two rear cameras.

A headphone jack is pretty rare.
