March 2013 doesn't seem like a long time ago. That's when the first HTC One launched, with its gorgeous metal body and oversized (for the time) 4.7-inch screen. Unfortunately, it was overshadowed by its competition and just didn't find as many buyers as it could have. Every year since then, we've had a new model with upgraded features but the same general identity - and the same fate.

HTC U Ultra Summary

HTC's new U Ultra smartphone has a stunning curved glass back, infused with colours in multiple layers for a deep, rich, eye-catching effect. However, this phone is bulky and extremely slippery. The size is due to it having a 5.7-inch QHD primary screen plus a secondary screen above it, which doesn't serve much purpose. Its light, with a 3000mAh battery that provides just about average runtime. Performance is good and the camera is excellent. You get Android 7.0 but the promised Sense Companion UI assistant is half-baked.

  • Excellent product and innovation by HTC
    Jusveen C. (Jul 22, 2018) on Amazon
    Excellent phone by HTC. Good sound, camera, smooth and quick. Beautiful light reflection on the back. Secondary display also looks good. Though HTC has exited India, im sure theyll return as an online only brand. In any case there is an option to buy imported versions (which ive bought) on Amazon. Though there may not be manufacturer warranty on it for India, it is made in Taiwan and seems of stellar quality. So i dont think it will go bad quickly. Another point that HTC phones are so light weight, and U Ultra also has amazing earphones. True innovation by HTC on many fronts. Sadly these days the market is running after Chinese phones though. I as a user have used almost all brands including their flagships (and currently have around 25 phones lol). HTC holds a special place in my heart :) Have been using them since Desire HD and One M7. Their product never fails to evoke interest and excitement from people who notice my phone, and always becomes a talking point :) Sadly their marketing did them in, otherwise their materials and look is simply beautiful! Also Sense UI is so smooth and doesnt slow down even after long term use.

  • Gorgeous glass body.. also very fragile but gorgeous
    Abhishek Sharma (Oct 5, 2018) on Amazon
    It's a great device, here are some pros and consProsStunning display.. brighter than most amoled displays. I have a galaxy note 9 and my u ultra has a brighter display. Although colors are a bit saturated on my Galaxy Note 9, U ultra stills produces crisp and more natural images on its 5.7" display.Great battery, gives a full day 20+ hours with 4G and Wi-Fi turned on all the time, some gaming, a lot of web surfing, a little bit texting and couple of phone calls. Gives 3-4 hours screen on time with typical usage which apparently is enough consideringQuick charge..i know it's not as fast as samsung or oppo or some other smartphones but I have been using HTC since way back in the HTC Desire HD era which is a long time. Ive owned couple HTC One x, couple of HTC One m7, 2 HTC one m8, HTC one m9+ AND ALL OF them had this problem where it took them more than 2 hours to charge. Granted they did not had quickcharge back then but I feel like HTC always had something going wrong with there chargers or batteries because other phones at that time were still faster to charge no matter what HTC always was the one taking forever to charge but all this changed with my HTC U ultra. This device charges from 0 to 100 in about 1/30-1/45Hours which isnt bad at all. Because most of the time you will plug when its around 15-20% and it would not take more than half an hour to push the charge to 50-60% which will last around 10-12hours with upto 2hours of screen on time which is fantastic.Amaming sound Build-in speakers are in no compression with the one of the one series specially on the m9+ which has front mounted speakers give amaing stereo sound. U Ultra does have dual speaker which are exactly the one in HTC 10 but U ultra has its speamers positioned a little different producing amaing sound when in music mode, better than any other 2017 smartphone. It also has excellent earphones shipped with it which adapts to the surround sound and maps inner level of your ear and corrects the sound accordingly which actually makes alot of difference.There are no cons I am tired so goodluckgo for it

  • Amazingly Great...Quietly Briliant.l
    Prinkesh (Apr 21, 2018) on Amazon
    I purchased this phone when it had cost less than half the original price thinking this could be a great second phone as my daily driver is the iPhone 7. So when the phone arrived, I was happy. Phone looked amazing and solidly built. Screen is fantastic and camera is awesome. I never thought about that but I did something totally unexpected: I ditched my iPhone. Now my daily driver or I would say the only driver is this phone. This phone is complete in every respect. I think I'm in love AGAIN. Thank you HTC.
