Anonymous, 29 Nov 2017htc u 11 life, htc u ultra or the 100 $ cheaper xiaomi mi a1? What are you even looking for in a phone?
Mouda, 27 Nov 2017Which is better to go with: HTC U Ultra or Huawei Mate 10 Lite? the mate 10 has "Lite" in the name for a reason.
The U Ultra is a Flagship.
the U11 life is the "lite" version of HTC phone for 2017.
Yesterday I finally bought one. There was a good deal on ebay:
Brand new U Ultra for $339 - 10% ebay bucks - $10 coupon, 3% cashback from ebates, paid with discounted gift cards which I bought with at least 10% discount.
Total: 339-10-33.90-10.17-32.9=$252.03. Great deal!
I can get this beautiful phone for 289 euro with a black friday deal, but I don't have the money to spend for it now. Great deal though!
so I lost my U Sonic earbuds. that would have really hurt if it was a $100US+ headphones.
got my new replacement Usonic earbuds today and I'm back in business.
only cost $12US on eBay.
something to think about for the people that are bashing USB-C headphones.
They sound great and cost a lot less then what you would pay for the equivalent sound from the old school jack.

Android 8.0.1 1. ZTE Axon 7 SGD300
2. Sony Xperia XA1 Plus SGD400
3. Samsung Galaxy J7 pro SGD $350
4. Huawei Mate 10 Lite SGD SGD398
5. Lenovo P2 SGD300
6. Moto Z Play SGD300
7. Oppo A77 SGD SGD345
8. Samsung Galaxy s8
1. with what my normal day use is, I got about 1 hour more on the ONE MAX (this is not just screen on time I'm talking about)
2. there is no option to scale resolution
3. they are relatively the same size, but you can feel that the U Ultra is thinner.

Hi AnthOny it's really quite amusing to see that what suits one doesn't necessarily suit another. To you the U11 is too small and the U Ultra is just right. For me the U Ultra was far too big and even the U11 is too big after my s6. I have a friend who has a U Ultra and another friend who has just bought a U11. Neither of them impressed me from a size perspective, particularly the large bezels. The iphone8 was a huge disappointment being simply the same body wise as it's predecessors. So I bit the bullet and went for an s8 and have no regrets. Initially I had battery discharge issues after an update but I went to Samsung and they re-loaded the software. Now all is good. Had the U11 been in a more compact body then I may well have chosen it but having said that I am perfectly satisfied with my choice. Neither phone is bad and I would doubt that one is better than the other. It is simply a matter of personal choice body-wise - you chose the larger one, I chose the smaller one and we are both happy.
You need to stop buying fake/knock off HTC phones and then saying it sucks.
If you used a real HTC U ULTRA you would never say it sucks. Especially if you like the HTC UI. And the camera is one of the best from HTC.
Anth0ny, 15 Nov 2017I'm seeing it on eBay for $353USFound one for $329 online, ebay has a few for $345, but waiting for some ebay promo + 8-10% ebay bucks.

tap volume up> on the ON-SCREEN slider tap V to expand all sliders to make sure they are all at 100%.
2. do a hardware test of your speakers. go to the app draw and open help>tap on hardware misbehaving >hardware dianostics> Audio test.
3. as it's a new phone you just got if the 2 above are ok, it most likely a glitch from doing the updates without clearing the cache partition or from restoring apps from another phone restore. copy files you want to keep to your SD card.
go to the bootloader and wipe the cache partition then factory reset and restart. manually install your apps. DO NOT DO A RESTORE FOR APPS. once everything is installed, working, then turn on "back up my data"
if you don't know how the clear the cache partition, just ask.
hope this helps.

Every new version of the sense UI, they just strip more & more things out of it.

It works...but personally I find it makes the overall experience kinda cluttered. Coming from Winfone and Miui ecosystem which does provide easy tools for this, I find the HTC's lack of in built quick shortcut for the volume toggle quite perplexing...
Anyway not a huge showstopper...

when you open it, go to the notifications option and turn it on.
Tap customize and add as much toggles you want to your notification bar.
Note: if you are using boost+ you must go in it and in the optimize background app section and turn off optimization for power toggles. If you don't, boost+ will keep closing the notification area quick lunch bar you made.
Let me know if this meets your needs.
