Siddique, 28 Sep 2017Guys suggestions from Htc 10 (Aed 1099) Htc u ultra (Aed 1249) , moto z(Aed1000) , Sony Xperia... moreHello, I am pretty much in the same boat today in Saudia, my short list was eventually reduced to HTC 10 (1099SAR) HTC U Ultra (1249SAR) and LG V20 (1249SAR), while I excluded mid-range options such as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4/Mi Max 2 and Moto Z Play and because of lack of support, even here.
HTC 10 - my immediate first-choice, Oreo upgrade virtually guaranteed, reasonable improvement in battery life and camera performance after a few updates, the retention of a headphone jack (something I'am beginning to find scarce!), and further customization down the line with custom ROMs (Currently running nougat on Galaxy Note 4 through LineageOS). Sturdy metal construction and black and silver combo would be nice. OIS on the front camera for great selfies and videos. HTC's Sense is the best OEM skin because of its closeness to Stock, which I find perfect. If I don't find the other two at the prices you mentioned, going to jarir to pick this up.
HTC U Ultra - Interesting proposition compared to the 10 at only a 150 SAR difference, but no headphone jack, fingerprint magnet of a rear surface, and virtually no custom ROM support at xda should the notoriously unreliably HTC software division fail to provide the update to Android P or Q. Difficult choice, but my first choice nonetheless if I can find it at the price you mentioned (Hope you could give me a hand with some stores who sell it at 1249SAR). 150 SAR difference is more than worth the (slight) improvements. Also I have wireless earbuds and the battery endurance ain't too bad
LG V20 - Media Monster, Quad DAC, three microphones, nougat out of the box with almost guaranteed 2 android version updates, easily would've been the first choice but for one problem - the fated bootloop issue and russian roulette style of affecting devices. The device has been added to the class-action lawsuit involving the G3/G4/G5/V10. I had a wonderful experience with the LG G Pro 2 (Note 3 competitor), but this is a big investment for me and having it die one day would be dreadful.
So its U Ultra or 10 for me, Hope this helps bro!

soheil8, 17 Sep 2017screen.bezel less.dual camera.battery life.one hand useI find it strange that you say the G6 has better battery life but on the GSMARENA spec sheet it has a battery endurance rating that is 9 hours less than the U Ultra.
Are you using the LG as much or doing the same things you did on the U Ultra?
soheil8, 17 Sep 2017screen.bezel less.dual camera.battery life.one hand useWhat do you like about the screen size? Bigger viewing space? Smaller viewing space? That it's long and thin?
Do you find the front and back cameras take better pictures than the U Ultra?
Bezels not a thing for me. And I use this phone with one hand when I need to.
What about the other things?
Ear buds sound
Audio recording quality
Call audio quality
Style of UI
Smoothness of interface
How do you rate the 2 phones for each?
Anth0ny, 16 Sep 2017Could I ask you, what about it you find to be better?screen.bezel less.dual camera.battery life.one hand use
soheil8, 16 Sep 2017 i have sold my htc u ultra to get lg g6.the g6 is far betterCould I ask you, what about it you find to be better?
Fantastic phone. I've returned my G6 to get the U ultra because I didn't like the narrow display of the G6. The U Ultra is an amazing phone with great sound quality, excellent camera, nice big and bright display, blazing fast performance and good battery life. I would recommend this phone to anyone who's looking for a phablet with a 'normal' screen and without those ridiculous narrow 18:9 aspect ratios like on the G6 and S8 with black bars while watching videos. Great bang for buck too with this U Ultra.
Hi, im intersted in buying a phone, something in the price range of the motog5+ , +the most important facts for me ar the camara and the battery, thank you very much for the help!
Have a good one!! :)
Mkman, 09 Sep 2017For ppl who actually have this phone...plz provide me info about the performance/battery drain... moreon a normal work day when I don't have time to binge Netflix, I get about 14 hours on a full charge. things I'm disappointed with in this phone (keeping in mind that my android daily drivers before this have been the HTC ONE MAX & Galaxy S3) is....
1. The back of the phone is glass. it would have been understandable if it had wireless charging, but it doesn't so why have the glass back?
2. the speaks sound great but they just don't sound as loud as the front speaker of the HTC ONE MAX. you can hear more deal in the sound but where I could take a speaker phone call while street cycling with the one MAX, the speaker on the U Ultra is pointing in the wrong direction to hear a speaker phone call over street noise if I'm cycling. and I don't like that.
3. accessories manufacturers have decided to skip this phone. forget trying to get a battery case, bumper case or any cool snap on accessory for this phone.
those are the only letdowns I could find with this phone after having it for 6mounts
Feras66alq, 10 Sep 2017man u didnt understood me i meant that can the phone give 5 hours screen on time ?
is it wort... morein my opinion, $300US is a deal (if it is not a knock-off phone you getting).
5 hours SOT of Netflix 6.5 hours run time in total & 13% battery still left.
I paid $801US after tax and what I know of the U Ultra now, I would still buy it over the
Samsung Galaxy S8 & S8+
This does not mean that the U Ultra is perfect. I just suits my needs better than the phones mentioned above.
screen too small = U11 & oneplus 5
screen too narrow for comfortable portrait typing = G6 & S8
screen colors not rich = G6
speaker volume below acceptable = S8, S8+, Note 8
poor audio recording = S8, S8+ Note 8
don't have my prefered back materal of mettal = U Ultra, U11 S8, S8+ Note 8, G6
the Camera is excellent.
the earbuds are excellent.
the 4 mics are excellent.
the UI is excellent.
it doesn't stutter or have delays with any of the apps I use.
the audio from the speakers is very detailed. I wish they were front facing like my old HTC ONE MAX but they are still better than what you are getting from the other phones mentioned (U11 the only exception)
so if I needed to buy a new phone today because a truck crushed my U Ultra......for $300 I would buy a U Ultra again without thinking twice about it.

Feras66alq, 10 Sep 2017hello guys is the u ultra worth 300 dolar ?
what about snapchat camera ? is it good enough ... moreYou joking right?
Did you even look at the spec on the phone before you asked if it could handle those basic apps? This is HTC 2017 phablet flagship.
Those apps run on 2013 flagship phones with no problem.
hello guys is the u ultra worth 300 dolar ?
what about snapchat camera ? is it good enough ?
the battery for youtube with some instgram and snapchat , can the u ultra handle is for 5 hours sot ?
Adam, 09 Sep 2017The phone become heat in normal use of browsing internet is reaching to 45 Celsius when usin... moreSounds a little high for only web surfing.
Over 1 hour of YouTube, I'm at 37 degrees Celsius.
I can spike to 45 degrees but that's when I'm using GPS in a windscreen mount (direct sun) & the phone is plugged in. But my normal use is 30-37.
Other than the heat, are you having any of the problems I mentioned in the other post?
You can try for the seller to change it but don't know how successful you will be without a problem being caused by the heat.
One more thing, if you have to send it for HTC to check before it is changed..... Don't do it.... HTC will only give you a factory refurbished phone in a replacement situation and replacement stock for the U Ultra is hard to come by for HTC apparently, you will be without your phone for months.
