AnonD-745050, 16 Mar 2018i sold my htc a9s to get this htc u play... very premium look n solid phone... many people s... moreOh!! We have a thing in common. I'm currently using htc one a9 (not s tho) and planning to buy the U play but still in doubt since i'm changing from "one" to the mid range one of "U". If it wasnt fr the battery and also camera as it fell down mutiple times already fr the past 18 months & got no stock fr technician to change it, i wouldnt hv thought to buy a new phone. So, is U play worth after all?
+cost - i got mine at about 150eur
+ 3gb ram ( not 4 as listed above)
+good camera for this bux
+smooth look and feel (thin)
+ headphones & their unique feature
+ works well under heavy apps ( photoshop, gaming)
+ superfast charge ( 40 minutes tops from 3% to 100%)
- since we are talking about HTC = 0 real support or care
- ANDROID 6.0 and no further update or support from HTC ( last patch = NOV2017)
- NO CUSTOM ROMS available
- battery first month couldn't last 12 hours, but for the last 2 weeks it lasted even 1.5 days without gaming
it would be great having at least Android 7 but for the money i spent, it's ok...ish

Htc can't make medium-class smartphones except u life and u11 eyes (which you can't get in my country btw.). Htc 10 is good successor of the One rule. I bought it in February 2017 and it still working smooth till now. If you're worrying about the camera-you can stop doing it because it's the first good camera in Htc ever. You can quote me on that.
im htc user and u play its the first htc phone that i have had.
its great and its battery is also good for me becuase i work with this phone and i can say its the best phone that i have ever had:)
no more HTC for me - My old M8's camera has the known shakes issue, now my less than 8 month old U Play has another issue whereby it plays a few second horn tone through the speaker, thus blowing it and causing it to distort. - This issue is also reported on an HTC 10 - https://forum.xda-developers.com/htc-10/help/htc-10-speaker-crackle-distortion-t3566516
...and now I read there's no Oreo update ? I hate to say it, but I'm going back to Samsung
Anonymous, 27 Apr 2018No update to Oreo, HTC confirmed it to me via a reply to my post on their Facebook page.They didn't update it to nogate till now , and you asked about oreo ?!!!

Build quality is awesome, far better from it's price cousins. Interesting thing is, I have a sticker on my phone box which says: 3000mAh. It seams that HTC recognized battery issue and made a series with this capacity. So, my battery is not bad at all, it can work ~24h which is Ok in my case. Phone is not expensive anymore, so I can recommend it. We might also get Android update.

metrogo, 10 Apr 2018I'm still stuck with Android 6... i am htc u play user...i dun think will get nougat update...so sad....
Does anyone have a problem with the USonic earphones (the ones included in the box)?
When I use them, I always hear some buzzing sound regardless of USonic is on or off. I've tried many times re-setting the personal audio profile but it gives nothing. It's so annoying that I do not use these earphones at all. And I don't hear it when I use other Bluetooth earphones.

Bodan, 13 Feb 2018It's going to be great, because Oreo is coming for this modelIs this true? As I still haven't got naught.btry life is the only downside.but fast charging helps.but I wonder if this would be more better for the price
Battery like garbage, Dear don't buy this garbage phone i have very bad experience.
Thowfeeq, 27 Feb 2018i bought it in last week. Good performance.. But Battery life is too short . i am getting only... moreIf you need to have network connection the battery will not keep you more than 10 hours ( just in stand by ) If you want to play on it, or use the GPS.....no way to be content. I recomand this phone . And for the battery truble , it can be usefull an external battery
