I used to be HTC fan.. but the camera & battery keep on pushing me away from HTC :(
However, HTC U Ultra's camera & battery are really giving me surprise, beyond my expectations!
Camera - Some reviews said its same level with Pixel XL?!
Battery - With 3000mah, 5.7 QHD secreen.. endurance rating 81h?!
HTC, I never oppose to change. But u are not apple, u might be a little risky to take away the 3.5mm jack at this moment. Good luck.
To the owners of the phone.
I have notice that in split screen some apps can be resized and some can not.
Some apps don't go in split screen at all.
clearly with is not a problem of the phone. so for the apps that you need full split screen functionality with resizing, please contact the developer and ask them to do a split screen and resizing support update.
This phone does not support Reliance Jio sim. The default dialer and default messaging app does not work with JIO sim. On enquiry with Htc suport centre it was informed that an update is in the offing for this problem. Till then you have to use two dets of apps for dialing and sms. Hold your buying till the problem is resolved.
Just now watched jerryrigeverything teardown, priced as lamborgini but worth for honda city.....
n-bot, 20 Mar 2017is it good for the price?as my longer post looks like it is not going to go up, this is the shortened version
is it good for the price?
for me yes.
1. It has the U.I. that i absolutely enjoyed using on the HTC ONE MAX but now it's much faster and smoother on the U Ultra.
2. It still has the big screen and i can use split screen apps on it now.
3. laud speaker volume is much clearer but a tad softer. but still much better than what i here on a S7.
4. camera is leaps better than that of the ONE MAX.
5. ok google is truly hands free now as it works with the screen locked/off and only responds to my voice. (not just any voice) and the response time is much faster.
6. there is no light bleed.
7. there are no gaps in the construction.
8. there is no speaker rattle.
9. the camera bump does not go pass the case.
10. and i'm even surprised that i like the finger print scanner in the front. especially now that it tunes on the screen and unlocks the phone with just one touch.
the only thing i'm missing right now are those front fire-ring babies as my finger can get in the way of the down fire-ring one from time to time. but the rest of the phone is better than the one max. and i'm pretty sure the speakers on this is better than what is going to come on the S8 or G6
so it was a good buy for me.
note:- if you are buying this for the looks of the back and think you can put a clear case on it for protection, then don't bother buying it. any case on it greatly decreases how sexy the back is.
n-bot, 20 Mar 2017is it good for the price?for me it is? for you it may not be.
you have to know what you NEED in a phone and what you are will to pay to get that need...
i gave my reasons in a next post to you, but it was so long that it is under review before it goes live.
what do you want to know about this phone to help you know if it is worth it or not?

and i can't disagree, glass can never be stronger than metal on any phone.
Anth0ny, 19 Mar 2017What exactly do you mean by questionable durability due to glass build?
The S6,7&8 are al... moreDid I say that s6 and the laters are any more durable than this one? Of course their durability is also questionable. Hell even my z5's durability is questionable, but z5 has edges to protect the glasses on both front and back. This 2,5d glass is prone to shatter much easier than z5 though. Same goes for all 2,5D glass phones.
There is no denial that u ultra is very beautiful, more than HTC 10. But HTC 10 is obviously much more durable than it. Of course appearance is subjective, for example I happen to like z5's bezels and sides when most hate them, so there is no argument about the appearance topic.
Still we can argue about glass durability, there is no denial that glass is fragile.
Does any one here use magnetic USB-C charging cables?
I would like some feedback on what brand is performing good or what brand to avoid.
Anth0ny, 20 Mar 2017that may be true but i'm not going to take your word for it when i comes to what phone is good... moreEven the GSM arena staff are agreeing with me.It seems some people know a real critic like me and summed up everything i said :)
Pretty much every critic out there are supporting my accusations and say the same.I am glad others think the same and i will continue to fight you over this phone becoz i am always right :)
About the light bleed.It might be a defected unit.And you said there is none so we finished that.But pointing it out it's sad and pathetic only to cover up the MAJOR FLAWS this phone has that.Even the official staff of GSMaren are agreeing with me.
Phone looks good, camera seems to be promising. The only thing I have to criticize is the battery. 3000mAh is too small for a 5.7 inch phone.
Rex Tech, 20 Mar 2017Sounds like a good goal to have to defend this company or the specific phones.Just to inform y... morethat may be true but i'm not going to take your word for it when i comes to what phone is good, it has, don't have or there defects.
you enjoy feeding misinformation. e.g. I offer to show you proof there is no light bleed and you reply "no need to show me anything"
your mind is set and there is nothing any one here could say to make you believe that some of what you "know" is not correct.
yes 800+ is alot. and don't buy it if you don't want what it has to offer. (there is a reason i didn't go from S3 to any other S phone. there is a reason i didn't go to a next HTC till now from the ONE MAX) but making sh*t up.... that's just sad. So for the reset of the readers i'll will continue to call out your sh*t. LOL
Anth0ny, 20 Mar 2017I'm just pointing out your incorrect information for the other readers that may not have any o... moreSounds like a good goal to have to defend this company or the specific phones.Just to inform you i never was on HTC forums before becoz i didn't care about their phones.Since they weren't much of a deal with their older chipsets used on brand new phones but with appropriate price tags.But this one caught my eye only becoz of the huge price tag and the parts used (or not used).I am glad you are happy with your phone but just letting you know many phones would have been a better choice than this and to everyone else.
Rex Tech, 20 Mar 2017They don't but they have everything else or most of it.Plus Samsung and Sony already bought al... moreI'm just pointing out your incorrect information for the other readers that may not have any of the phones you are talking about and don't know that you are just talking from videos you saw on YouTube, not personal experience. (so your information is not always correct)
and there is no need to feel sorry or happy for me, I'm happy with this phone as an upgrade from the HTC ONE MAX and it was not your money i spent. When i find something i don't like about it, ill post that too. but the difference between me on you is.... i'll be talking from actual usage about my likes and dislikes. something I have done in the past with the HTC Touch HD, HD2, Samsung S3 & the HTC ONE MAX.
I'm here to lean new things about a phone i have and to inform others that need info.
you are in the U Ultra forum because......aaaaaa? I don't know or care because the pity you give isn't worth anything and don't change my life in any way. i will just continue to correct any wrong information you feel like repeating from YouTube.
What a ugly i-copycat phone!?
Nothing from beautiful "One M9 or S9"...? WHY?
