In this Review, I would be explaining you each and every aspect of this smartphone which will help you to decide whether the stuff is worth or not. 🙂
HTC U ultra is one heck of a good looking device. A 5.7 inch primary screen and a 2 inch secondary screen for extra features or shortcuts we may say. A glass finish which is quite reflective and fingerprint magnet which is also quite slippery. Overall , it is a good looking device which you can showoff. It is a super LCD display which means you get quite colors on the phone. It has a 1440×2560 pixel screen which means it has 513 pixels per inch. You also get a corning gorilla glass 5 protection which means it can handle drops, many of them. It is also 170 g which is justified considering the size.
U Ultra runs on Android nougat out of the box which it obviously should considering it is a flagship. It runs on Snapdragon 821 , yet again justified. Quad core device, Adreno 530 GPU which suits the chip set given and guaranteeing a smooth interface experience. It comes in two variants 64 GB model or 128 GB model with 4 GB of RAM. It also sports a 3000 mAh battery, YEAH! 3000 mAH battery for a big device. There must be a lot of unused space under that hood. 🙂
HTC is pricing this device at $749 which puts it in premium range. Is this price justified though? Let me know in the comments.
Camera is one of the key feature of any device now. It either makes it a great device or not so great device. U Ultra is a good one. It has all the camera features a premium range smartphone should have: 12MP, f/1.8, 26mm, OIS, laser & phase detection autofocus, dual-LED (dual tone) flash. It can shoot videos at 4K upto 30fps which is quite good as well. Well, but we have a huge camera bump. 😉
Now let’s talk about some other features which the device offers . We get fingerprint sensor at the front which is the smallest one I have ever seen. We also have permanent capacitive buttons which are place way down on the chin. Yeah! We also do not have a headphone jack which is a bummer for a phone this huge, they gotta include something.
Below are some valuable Pros and Cons you should be familiar to before purchasing this smartphone.
- Good camera
- Best design
- HTC skin and features
- Small battery
- Not water resistant
Its better for you to get the newest box of headphones: Sony MDR-ZX110A On-Ear Stereo Headphones (White). This headphone would surely fit for your new HTC U Ultra.
We can pretty much say it’s a very good device but not for $749. When you want to buy a phone that costly, you ought to include everything there is. U Ultra doesn’t have it. If they somehow decrease the price to 500-600 then it’s definitely a great buy. So that’s pretty much it. Thanks for reading. Let me know in the comments below how you feel about this device.
