For years the name HTC was synonymous with solid smartphones. If you bought a high-end HTC you knew you were getting a classy metal chassis slick and sporty software and better audio than any other smartphone. But the company rewarded its customers with the HTC U Ultra.
They launched two devices in the series this is the larger one. The ultra really earns its name with a 5.7 inch Super LCD topped off by an additional secondary screen. It is anchored at bottom by the fingerprint sensor, home key and navigation buttons. That’s a lot of display space which is a Blee leveraged by Android N and it’s multi screen capability but it’s also a lot of freeboard and it makes the you ultra seem even more ponderous.
The HTC U Ultra has a 16 megapixel selfie shooter upfront attacks at least seven different modes so you can snap a photo no matter what kind of lighting you’re in. On the back side the camera is 12 megapixels optically stabilized with a large aperture and a mixture of laser and phase detection autofocus despite that one-two punch.
Nothing is great than having a fast running phone and a room of storage. This one has a 64 GB of internal and 4 GB of RAM clocked at 2×2.15 GHz Kryo & 2×1.6 GHz Kryo processor.
HTC does have a little consolation prize in the box. A set of earbuds that kick out great sound and software on the phone that customizes the audio profile based on ambient noise. You need to plug those buds into the USB port because there’s no headphone jack.
There’s quick charge 3.0 for fast top ups but a sizable phone like this could be made to last up to two days given a big enough battery. For now it has mega 3000 mAh.
HTC U Ultra is not a bad smartphone it’s actually a very good one wrapped in an utterly gorgeous shell. This device will please some fans of the company and some phone geeks.
