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
AnonD-698966, 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.

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.

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.

Noumma, 07 Sep 2017Thanks Antony for your suggestion.
Which mid range mobile you suggest for good entertainment... morephones I would recommend depending on how much you have to spend.
HTC U Ultra
HTC U 11
SAMSUNG NOTE 8
Moto G PLUS 5GEN
Moto G 4gen
anything under the Moto G 4gen, you need to talk to some other person. :)
And NO, I don't know every phone on the market so there could be other phones on the market that are better for a matching price.

Which mid range mobile you suggest for good entertainment series. I wanted to buy one, but do not which one should I buy. Am really confused. I need a mobile to have good music. Experience and watching movies and good camera. Pls help with your advise.. Thanks in advance
NOUMMA, 06 Sep 2017Hello Antony, Being an expert,could you please suggest me a mobile I can buy for entertainment... moreexpert? Lol. Thanks for the title.
I have never been interested in a Sony phone as I don't like IPS LCD. and I have no friends with a Sony that can tell me what the performance is like.
SuperLCD5, AMOLED, P-OLED is my preference.
Phones that I like for a good display/audio combo is...
HTC U Ultra
S8 not on my list because speaker audio is horrible to me & infinity edge glare is not ideal for video viewing.
All 3 above are glass which make them all less durable than a metal back phone. So a case is recommended and even put on a Dbrand skin for the times you don't want to use a case.
There are other phone I like but they are not tops at what you asked about.

Is charging stopping because it's getting too hot?
Are pixels in part or the screen getting discolored at times? (like a burn spot)
Is your phone randomly rebooting or powering off?
With indoor use of none GPS app? what temperature reading are you getting from the battery (please indicate if it's Celsius or Fahrenheit)
What exactly is the problem? Because what you call "hot" others may call "worm"
Worm indoors is normal, hot in extended time in direct sunlight is normal. (like a car dash board)
But without proper details from you, no one can say if you need to return your phone.

ask me about bmoible or Digicel and I could give my opinion. :)
I see that you are one of the most active users here and I would like an advise although is not about the phone but about service. I have an HTC U Ultra and I love it. I´m not sure with which carrier I should go. I have been told by different people to go to Straight Talk but I would like to have other opinions about their service. You may have not used their service maybe, but have you heard anything about this carrier?
Thanks in advance!
