HTC is renowned for making high-quality smartphones and tablets. From past years, they have launched below par products in the market and due to this, their market share has been drifted to other companies. HTC U Ultra 2017 is their attempt to cover up lost ground and they have introduced innovative features that will surely captivate the customers worldwide. Some unique features of this phablet are:
HTC U ULTRA – DESIGN
HTC boasts unique design as they have introduced beautiful mobile phones in the past. They have been famous for their all-metal design but they have snubbed the metal for the all-glass back. The phone has a 5.7-inch screen and weighs only 170 grams. A flaw in the design is the omission of the microSD card slot. You will get two different variants on the phone which are 64 GB and 128 GB. HTC U Ultra features comprise a sapphire and gorilla glass screen as well. The front-facing sensor provides fast and accurate results as well.
HTC U ULTRA – DISPLAY
HTC U ULTRA has a dual screen setup that works similarly as the LG V10 and LG V20. A 2-inch screen is present over the 5.7-inch display of the phone. The small display will show the notifications of the applications and games. You can also easily customize the quick shortcuts of the display. The primary display also boasts a 1440p resolution and provide sharp and clear images. The only flaw in the display is that the auto-brightness settings are quite sluggish.
HTC U ULTRA – SOFTWARE
HTC U’s software is the best thing about this new phone. The phone runs on the Android Nougat paired with Sense Skin by HTC. Nougat 7.0 is the best version of Android to date and it provides improved battery performance, new interface, and enhanced notification system. HTC sense skin works pretty well with the new android interface and provides all the latest news and stories on the home screen with the help of Blinkfeed.
HTC U ULTRA – PERFORMANCE
HTC’s new phablet is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor and has 4 GB of dedicated RAM. As Snapdragon 835 is present in the latest Samsung phone, 821 model seems a bit rusty. Although, 821 is an old model but it is still far better than most smartphone processors. The phone speakers provide loud and clear audio and the mic delivers good quality audio as well.
HTC U ULTRA – CAMERA
You will find an OIS-12MP sensor in the phone and a 16 MP front-facing camera on the phone. The camera’s ultra-pixel technology has not been successful in the past and due to this reason, the company has made incremental changes in the technology to accommodate low-light photography as well.
HTC U ULTRA – BATTERY
You will find 3000 mAh battery on the phone and with the screen size and display features, the company should have increased the battery. The battery does not last a single day and even with regular use, you will have to charge the battery every once in a while. HTC U Ultra feels a bit overpriced because many key features are missing on the phone.
