Anth0ny, 03 Apr 2018Because the phone does not support USB-C PD. when you connect the PD charger, it doesn't know ... moreI do get a non-branded USB type C to HDMI, with USB A and another USB C power port on the adapter. This one just cost around USD 10. Unlike what you mention, I plug in the original charger, I measure the voltage and ampere, I do get 5V/1A charging. It doesn't detect QC 3.0, but do work as normal charging. The HDMI and USB A works flawlessly. Surprisingly, this cheap adapter can turn my friends Samsung S8/Note 8/S9 into the Samsung Dex mode, and also turn the Huawei Mate 10 Pro into EMUI Desktop. Well, as long as I don't play high graphic game, the charging is the normal speed charging. Play high graphic game will make the charging very slow. However, this HTC U Ultra only can support the normal screen mirroring, detect my TV and output at highest 1080p/60hz mode.
Cooray, 29 Apr 2018Battery life good or bad in this device ? Is there any over heat problem in this device?battery live is average. it's what to be expected from a 3000mAh battery. don't expect it to last as a phone with a 4000mAh battery would last.
my device is not suffering from any overheating problems. I have never seen this phone stop charging because it got too hot. (something I have seen on other phones I have had when carding and using the GPS on a dash mount.)
Battery life good or bad in this device ? Is there any over heat problem in this device?
Nilco, 27 Apr 2018Performing the "wipe cache partition" do wipe and reset the apps memory?
I know how to do it,... moreYou are not going to loose your settings if you wipe the cache partition. What you will Loose is the obsolete/useless juck, as a new page file would be written in the cache partition on the next boot containing only relevant information.
If you never wiped your cache partition on this phone before it still has Android 7.0 drivers in it, as not even a factory reset clears the cache partition.
Anth0ny, 26 Apr 2018ok try only the cache partition wipe.

I know how to do it, just don't know if the memory will be reset, so I may backup my data 1st before doing. I got other working backup phone for doing such action, unless go deeper into something like TWRP recovery.

Then, I restore the Whatapps history, other chatting apps record, contact list, and sms. For others storage stuff, I keep in Micro SD card. So I just copy everything into Micro SD card and direct plug into the new phone. Then I start reinstalling almost all the apps that I installed on the previous phone, those game progress are saved by Google Play Games, so I just need to reinstall the games. Then, after 2 days, I receive the Oreo updates, then just update from there.
Nilco, 26 Apr 2018Well, I'm not pinpointing it is an issue of Oreo, because I am using this phone not long ago, ... moreEven if you don't want to do the factory reset part, you can still do the cache partition wipe only. It will help with some of the problems, if not all.
By the way, when you fist set up the phone, did you do a restore that was made by a next phone you had?
Anth0ny, 26 Apr 2018the display issue you mentioned sound to me like the phone was dropped and the data ribbon is ... moreWell, I'm not pinpointing it is an issue of Oreo, because I am using this phone not long ago, and Oreo is updated 2 days after the 1st start up. It may or may not of issue of Oreo. In all respect, everything works just fine, except those minor issues that I mention. The screen actually is not flicker or what, it just having some kind of "screen refresh" after the phone is unlocked. It maybe a good idea to wipe cache and restore to factory setting, but I'm lazy to do that because I have installed plenty of apps. Anyway, pretty much an underrated phone. It is more expensive than an S7 Edge when it is launch, but now it's pricing are reaching the lower midrange level, that even much cheaper than most of the midrange phone from other brand. For those on a budget, this is the phone to get, even though it is not with 18:9 screen ratio, maybe some thick bezel for some, and the annoying missing 3.5mm jack.
Nilco, 26 Apr 2018This is one of the best price per performance ratio phone out there, that even beat the price ... morethe display issue you mentioned sound to me like the phone was dropped and the data ribbon is no longer properly connected to the motherboard. the fix would be to heat and remove the back glass and reseat the display connector on the motherboard.
none of what you mentioned are known problems with this phone on Oreo.
but you can still try clearing your cache partition then factory resetting and manually reinstall your apps. don't use an old phone backup.
if you still have the problems after that. its an issue with the hardware in your unit.
This is one of the best price per performance ratio phone out there, that even beat the price of Oneplus 3T and Xiaomi's own Mi5s/Mi5s Plus.
The only problem will be the missing 3.5mm jack, which is not included in the box, but I have bought one original HTC branded USB C to 3.5mm adapter for around USD11, which works on this phone, and also tested works on Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
Some weird thing observed, the WiFi connectivity is not stable on Android 8.0, there is always disconnection happen in the middle while using. Then, when charger cable plug in, and I go to Google Playstore to download or update apps, the download cannot start until I unplug the cable. Then, some weird thing on unlocking the phone where after the phone is unlocked with fingerprint or lock pattern, the screen flashed white for a second.
Some weird thing also happen like when I take out the SIM tray and insert back different SIM card or Micro SD card, the whole screen went black, then bricked. I have to push the power and volume- for a while for the phone boot into recovery mode, and choose "restart" option to recover the phone.
Maybe someone can enlighten me on these issues. Or maybe those are known issues that need the next software updates.
Try to get used to the secondary screen where some time it will turn on certain thing like Bluetooth and Camera while putting the phone in pocket, suspect is due to the secondary screen feature that can simulating some touch when it is accidentally turn on.

Tapsilog, 21 Apr 2018Is your htc ultra a dual sim or single sim?I wipe my cache partition from the boot loader & did a factory reset to get rid of all the Android nougat junk that got left behind and are no longer needed after the update.
I have no lag or slow down.
I did the update to get a 2018 Android security patch. Other than that nothing new in the ROMs is a big deal to me.
Please note by saying on the nougat for this phone is running on October 2017 security patch.

Anth0ny, 21 Apr 2018It never worked for you or it stopped working after the Oreo update?i didn't update it in Oreo yet, after reading all the opinions and experiences after oreo update. Most users are experiencing some lags. I'll stick with nougat for now until they release a stable oreo update. Thanks for the quick response anyway.
