Currently my phone has 63% battery left and the time available for each setting until exhaustion is -
- setting 1 - (the one which I use) - 16hours 22minutes
- setting 2 - 20hours 7minutes
- setting 3 - 50hours 34minutes
there are also 3 screen resolution modes -
- setting HD+ - 1480 x 720
- setting FHD+ - 2220 x 1080
- setting WQHD+ - 2960 x 1440
I always use the WQHD for the best resolution because if you've got you may as well use it and enjoy it. I would imagine your Ultra has something similar.
scorpio, 06 Mar 2018s8 also has a battery saving mode but I can't say which phone will go further.The 2 battery saving modes on this phone can be set to auto turn on at a pre set battery % or manually.
With the 2nd mode being a extreme mode. That strips the phone down 2 just phone calls, SMS, email, calendar & calculator. The run time is insane with extreme mode on.

It's not going to last as long as a phone with a 4000mAh Battery. But it will last as long as or longer than the s8 that also has a 3000mAh Battery.
Hi, I'm going to buy a new mobile, and I found that U ultra has a very good specs. for the price, but everybody here is talking about battery life, is it really that bad, does it has a battery saving mode or so? I'm new to HTC and really have a limited budget, please advice.
Iv been live-chating with one of support guys from Htc and all i got is *Oreo is on the way*. No date, no time frame, just *on the way*. Well, thats something :)

Maybe that's the kind of close they mean.
We in March now.

Anth0ny, 28 Feb 2018To date. NO.your guess is as good as mine.
but I'm not holding my breath that it would happen, especially now that the 2016 HTC 10 already got Oreo. being skipped over like that is not a good sign.
and HTC USA live chat reps are no help with getting info on the matter.
AnonD-155624, 28 Feb 2018any Oreo Update for U Ultra?To date. NO.
AnonD-740921, 27 Feb 2018Why on earth would they not include an option in camera settings to turn off the annoying shut... moreI don't know why you not seeing it, but it is right there in the camera settings.
1. open the camera
2. tap the double dash on the left of the viewfinder to open the camera menu.
3. scroll down to the end of the menu, you will see "settings" with the gear icon. tap it.
4. uncheck the "shutter sound" checkbox. it will then say "off".
Note: if you are not seeing it there, then the phone you bought is for a region where by law you can't take off the sound.
The instructions I gave is based on the USA factory unlocked model.
Why on earth would they not include an option in camera settings to turn off the annoying shutter sound. And the sound while taking screen shot is equally horrid.
Battery life is sub par but that is expected because there's barely any space for a bigger battery in this tiny phone.
If someone could tell me how to turn off the shutter sound without rooting it..
AnonD-638272, 26 Feb 2018U Ultra has a very poor battery life, overall phone is excellent but battery drains very fast.Dude.. this is an HTC feature :D
All their phones have the worst battery possible. Surprised someone is saying this in 2018.
They have been like this since the first Desire phone, the one that had 512MB RAM.
