HTC U Ultra Review
Hello guys, Today I’m going to talk about HTC U Ultra Review. This is HTC’s biggest phone so far for 2017 both literally and figuratively. This is a behemoth of a smartphone. It’s even bigger than some of the most current flagship like the LG V20, Google’s Pixel XL or the iPhone 7 Plus.
It’s almost annoyingly big and a lot of that has to do with the 5.7inch screen and additional secondary ticker display. The extremely chunky bezels on all sides. If you like big phones you probably won’t have a problem with it. But it’s definitely not a phone that meant to be used one hand.
The build quality of HTC U Ultra is pretty typical HTC and nothing short of what you would expect from the company. But it’s all new design that hasn’t seen from HTC before. They have jumped on the glass and metal bandwagon with metal along the sides a glass exterior on the front and back. The back has a very unique and super reflective mirror like finish. Glass is already naturally hard to clean but the reflective coating makes fingerprints, smudges and dust even more prominent especially around the bulging Camera Lens.
The U Ultra isn’t all that thin of a phone either so it’s very surprising how big the camera bump is. It’s almost confusing as to why protrudes as much as it does. Equally as confusing is the lack of a headphone jack. It’s certainly thick enough to house a headphone jack So HTC could have included one. The U Ultra to not have a headphone jack. It so that HTC can push people to use their you Sonic USB-c earbuds that come bundled with a U Ultra. We all know that USB-c is the future but if your device is still big enough to fit a headphone jack. It should have a headphone jack.
Home Button: –
On the bottom bezel is a solid state home button that also functions as a fingerprint sensor which does work pretty well. It’s fast and accurate to unlock without much trouble but the capacitive keys flanking. The Home Button is a different story instead of being centered they sit far too low on the bezel.
The screen is definitely one of them the 5.7inch Quad HD Super LCD5 display looks fantastic. HTC has always done a great job with LCD it’s very sharp, contrasty and vibrant in color and easily readable in direct sunlight. The only glaring problem with the screen is that exhibit some very noticeable light bleed coming from the upper left corner right below the front-facing camera. Which doesn’t necessarily detract from the overall display but once you see for the first time.
It can be a little hard to forget about the HTC U Ultra also comes with a secondary ticker display. If we’re being perfectly honest here it’s pretty much a carbon copy of LG secondary display of V20. It also works when the main screen is turned off and from here it will still show you notifications along with basic info. You also have toggles to some system settings such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and the Camera flash. It has auto wake functionality built in.
Processor & Memory: –
Inside it’s got a top tier set of specs will be Snapdragon 821, 4GB of RAM, 64Gb of internal storage and a microSD card slot. If you want to expand upon that in real world use there’s really no surprises here.It’s very fluid with general navigation and scrolling has great touch response is quick to launch apps, multitask and runs games with silky smooth frame rates. There are no noticeable issues here at all.
The phone smooth performance also has a lot to do with the software experience. It’s running HTC sense but this time of Android 7.0 Nougat and although HTC Sense is starting to feel a little dated at this point. It’s still one of the cleanest software skins out there. You get all the features like HTC blink feed and highly customizable theme engine. It still maintains a lightweight stock look and feels. The newest addition the HTC software is their sense companion which is their own take on AI assistance. It’s supposed to provide suggestions and reminders based on personal usage and location.
Another really strong point for the U Ultra is the camera- It’s got 1 16-megapixel front-facing shooter that takes excellent selfies and the rear camera is no slouch either. It’s a 12-megapixel Ultrapixel with a large 1.55-micron pixel size, f/1.8 aperture, laser and phase detection autofocus and optical image stabilization. The camera is very quick to launch fast to focus and snap photos. The photos that it takes are quite good. HTC’s camera experience is clean and easy to use and offers a handful of shooting modes including a pro mode with the ability to shoot in raw. If you’re willing to venture outside the camera already fantastic auto-mode. Moving into low-light there is a noticeable increase in noise which is to be active any smartphone camera.
For the external audio the same speaker setup that we saw on last year’s HTC 10. It’s a tweeter and woofer combo with a front-facing speaker where the earpiece is located. Another speaker down along the bottom. It is pretty loud. Oddly enough the theater mode actually sounds way better than the music mode. It’s much fuller and deeper sound.
Usually with Phones this big you would also expect a massive battery to inside and it’s still a respectable size at 3000 mAh. It does have fast charging. It’s good enough to last a full day of average use but doesn’t expect to have much left over when you’re ready to wind down for the night. There are a handful of positives about that U Ultra.

The overall level, just to be clear the HTC U Ultra is not a bad phone by any stretch of the imagination. And this day and age it’s hard to find a phone that is truly bad. We’ve got to the point where we’re looking for phones that offer the most value for the money and doing something different that would compel you to buy it and the HTC U Ultra just isn’t doing that. It has a great set of specs, a really eye-catching design, and a solid camera. But the small battery and the lack of a headphone jack is questionable at best. It’s also missing features that are starting to become more common like wireless charging and dust and water resistance.
