for those like my self that enjoyed using HTC old web browser because it supported text reflow in desktop mode and would like to have a browser that is still getting updates.
give "Opera" a try not Opera mini but the full Opera browser in the play store. it has text reflow in desktop mode that you can turn on in settings.
do you guys know of any other browser that may be better that also has text reflow in desktop mode?
just notice that one of the updates added "Badge" support to the secondary screen.
so now apps like whats app, viber, email, facebook can show you a count of new notification next to the app icon in the secondary screen. this support was missing back in March.

I will say, if you are worried about durability, stay away from all glass back phones.
Anth0ny, 01 Aug 2017No.
Was it plugged in & charging when you were using it?
Did any one use it before you? ... moreThanks.
First, I checked dummy show piece, after ten minute staff girl opens a drawer and show me the original htc u ultra, she switched on front of my eyes and let that to me.
but maybe it is not felt in the protective case. any way I have changed my mind, will you or someone please recommend some other brand smart phone with better build quality, compass and gyro sensors ?

Did any one use it before you? If yes, do you know what apps they left running in the background?
Mine will get warm using GPS with the phone plugged in, in the car with the sun hitting it. But never got so hot to the point to stop charging.
Other than that if it does get worm, it's not worm enough to feel through the case I have on.
Anth0ny, 01 Aug 2017what is your question? you only made statements and I didn't see any questions. my question is did it get warm just in few minutes?
I used 3-4 minutes in the shop and it is get warmed.
AHM, 31 Jul 2017should i buy U Ultra or Oneplus 3t ???what are your reasons for looking at the both phones?
it's hard to say which to go with if no one knows what your needs and preferences are in a device. and for the average joe, both are good. you need to give more info about your likes and dislike so others will know which is better for you.
have you ever even used a one+ or HTC phone before?

Please Answer if you are the owner of HTC U Ultra. (Thanks)
I wanted to buy HTC U Ultra yesterday, but due to a mean reason I didn't go ahead.
My question is I check u ultra in the shop just for a 3-5 minute, I open Camera, visit a website and within 3 minutes I have realized it is warmed.
every phone is getting warm when user play games, but a normal use won't get warm to a smart phone.
I bought HTC M8 in 2014 and used it almost 3 years, still the best phone.

I got an email from HTC escalations department.
long story short, they were gett... moreDay #55, July 25th.
I have cancelled the UH OH protection claim.
on July 5th I ordered a replacement back on ebay (coming from China) for $75US
July 19th the replacement back arrived at my freight forwarding address in the United States
today it arrived for me in my country. it cost $6US to clear & $8US to be installed by a repair shop with a hot plate.
it was advertised as the Sapphire crystal glass version but I'm not going to try and scratch it to test it. :)
note: if I got the refurbished replacement from HTC USA, It would have cost about $56US to clear in my country from the freight forwarder (shipping and taxes) & about the same to send back the damaged phone to HTC USA from outside the US. (missed my window to have a friend get it into the US for free return shipping because HTC took to long to send a replacement.)
Now I have to wait for 24 hours to see if HTC has successfully cancelled my request.
Chris b, 25 Jul 2017If only HTC would make a one Max with today's specs!! Oooooo
the things from the ONE MAX I would want on the U Ultra to make me 100% happy with the U Ultra.
1. front facing speakers
2. metal body
3. IR blaster.
4. screen size 5.9" for the main screen (i still want the secondary screen too)
5. battery size.
so i'm more like 95% happy now
1% off for battery & IR blaster
1% off for screen size reduction
1% off for glass body
2% off for not having front facing speakers

If it's sun viewing you are taking about SuperLCD 5 get plenty bright. Ask to see your friends U Ultra in the sun and see for your self, the U11 has the same screen.
The only problem you may have is if you wear polarized Shades. I've been told that you can't see the screen in landscape with them on. I don't know for sure because I don't wear polarized shades.

None of your points really bother me although they all make sense. It may come down to the displays. The s8 is generally credited with the best display on the market and sunlight visibility is very important to me. I live in Australia and sometimes my s6 is difficult to read outdoors. But thanks for your time.

to think about when deciding between the 2
1. how do you feel about on-screen navigation keys?
I for one don't like them. I hate that they disappear when in an app and you have to do an extra action to bring them back. this is what you going to have to deal with on the S8 and it is something you didn't have to do on the S6.
2. how do you feel about the new aspect ratio?
for apps that don't support it. they will look like they are on a 5" screen as the s8 is so narrow.
3. how do you feel about not being able to charge your phone & use corded headphones at the same time?
because you can't do that with the U11

I hav... moreif you are picking between the 2 and your are worried about the glass in a fall, I would say go with the U11. 3 youtube tech reviewers that I follow have already broken the front curve glass on their personal S8 from accidental drops in a sitting position.
coming out a car, sitting on the toilet and the 3rd didn't say.
not to mention there is no good tempered glass for the curved screens. the complaint is "it pops off in a fall or when putting on or taking off your case.
getting good tempered glass screen protectors for the U11 is not a problem.
also, you should try typing on that narrow s8 screen and see which phone is more comfortable for typing in portrait.
