this is the only phone with is amazing screen and cool design right now anyone can buy....
i got 128gb version and it works gr8 and i love it in blue 101% recommended
I got this phone last week for 290$, and at this price point I definitely recommend this phone, It's got a superb display with a surprisingly great performing camera and the whole experience is flagship-like and very fluid, as for battery performance though, I'd say it's mediocre, but the quick charging really makes up for that, and there's no significant heat problem with this phone, I mean it heats up a bit with heavy usage but nothing out of the ordinary .

It can be buy separately though. I'm now waiting my accessory to come if can use the 3.5mm adapter with simultaneously charging the phone, I will update here if I get it to work.
If you are ok with that, then you are good to go, it function just like a highend flagship phone.
Of course, depend on your country, HTC U11 maybe is a better deal, but price different is huge.

When it comes to games, i'm playing PUBG, NBA 2k18 and mobile legends so far not experiencing any heat problems. Battery is good based on my daily usage pattern.
garbage phone is dead after three months,it was expensive mobile . I m not gonna buy any product from HTC anymore.
i am planning to buy this phone,would you recommend this?is there any heating problem when playing online game?thanks
Another thing when using the USB type C to HDMI adapter. Only the charging adapter with Qualcomm QC, be it 2.0 or 3.0 can achieve 5V/1A charging while simultaneously using the phone for HDMI display, I found this charging way faster, I have plenty of OEM Qualcomm QC charger, including a Xiaomi powerbank that comes with QC2.0.
Otherwise, normal 5V charger, I get way below power, just around 0.3 to 0.5A for charging. Still can charge, but really way slower.
Other issue with the adapter with Samsung S8/Note 8/S9, I notice the Samsung Dex mode only activated if the charger power is plug in. If not, you only get screen mirroring features.
Anth0ny, 02 May 2018could you post a link to the adaptor you are using? I would like to get one.I don't know if mine was similar to this on the aliexpress website, but it look exactly the same, just minus the brand marking. Mine was non-branded, can't tell which brand I own, just a plain common OEM type C HDMI adapter. The product did look very cheap, but it actually works. For charging, it charge at very slow rate, mind you if you keep plug and unplug, it won't charge properly. Need to keep connected for about 3 to 5 minutes for the ampere to leverage. Mine with original charger, and tested with OEM QC3.0 charger settle at 5V, around.0.9 to 1.1 amp (tested reading actually fluctuate a bit).
Tested just now with a Huawei Mate 10 Pro from a friend, and it did launch the EMUI Desktop as well. So, this generic adapter do work with Samsung Note 8 Dex mode (Exynos unlocked version tested) , and Huawei EMUI Desktop on Huawei Mate 10 Pro. For HTC U Ultra, it just have the option to mirror the screen. (Samsung Note 8 and Huawei Mate 10 Pro do have option for screen mirroring)
I have compared the quality of the HDMI output from my HTC U Ultra to HTC Connect (Android Miracast) via Wi-Fi, the image quality from HDMI is so much better, without any compression in signal, no signal drop or lag what so ever.
I don't know which country you are from, suggested you buy from local store, which you can return if it doesn't work (read at many place not all people get it works, and they do claim some just don't charge) . This purchase from me is just trial error purchase, where all my local smartphone shop don't has this kind of setup to demo.
Anth0ny, 02 May 2018"O" Well, what can I say. just know the problems you mentioned is not normal, on this phone a... moreFor Wi-Fi problem, I found that my house has too many electrical signal noise. If I turn off that device (actually an external HDD dock, noise maybe generated when HDD spinning), then no more signal lost. Others issue actually is quite minor by the way.
Anth0ny, 02 May 2018when charging at 1amp and using the phone to stream (movies or use Microsoft office) to the TV... moreAgain, unlike what you said, I did what you have said before posting the comment just now, I stream H264 movie for 2 hours via DLNA, 150mbps wireless N Wi-Fi, then output via HDMI to my plasma TV 1080p/60hz, I also plug in a wireless mouse/keyboard adaptor at USB port, starting from 60% battery, it did full charge the phone around 1.2 hours (the notification LED turn into green colour), and it didn't drain battery from that point, just remain 100%. I think all of us has different condition with the phone.
Nilco, 02 May 2018I have wipe the cache partition, no luck, these problem remain."O" Well, what can I say.
just know the problems you mentioned is not normal, on this phone and I have had mine from March 2017.
and if a factory reset doesn't fix it, then you have defective hardware.

Anth0ny, 03 Apr 2018Because the phone does not support USB-C PD. when you connect the PD charger, it doesn't know ... moreI do get a non-branded USB type C to HDMI, with USB A and another USB C power port on the adapter. This one just cost around USD 10. Unlike what you mention, I plug in the original charger, I measure the voltage and ampere, I do get 5V/1A charging. It doesn't detect QC 3.0, but do work as normal charging. The HDMI and USB A works flawlessly. Surprisingly, this cheap adapter can turn my friends Samsung S8/Note 8/S9 into the Samsung Dex mode, and also turn the Huawei Mate 10 Pro into EMUI Desktop. Well, as long as I don't play high graphic game, the charging is the normal speed charging. Play high graphic game will make the charging very slow. However, this HTC U Ultra only can support the normal screen mirroring, detect my TV and output at highest 1080p/60hz mode.
Cooray, 29 Apr 2018Battery life good or bad in this device ? Is there any over heat problem in this device?battery live is average. it's what to be expected from a 3000mAh battery. don't expect it to last as a phone with a 4000mAh battery would last.
my device is not suffering from any overheating problems. I have never seen this phone stop charging because it got too hot. (something I have seen on other phones I have had when carding and using the GPS on a dash mount.)
Battery life good or bad in this device ? Is there any over heat problem in this device?
Nilco, 27 Apr 2018Performing the "wipe cache partition" do wipe and reset the apps memory?
I know how to do it,... moreYou are not going to loose your settings if you wipe the cache partition. What you will Loose is the obsolete/useless juck, as a new page file would be written in the cache partition on the next boot containing only relevant information.
If you never wiped your cache partition on this phone before it still has Android 7.0 drivers in it, as not even a factory reset clears the cache partition.
Anth0ny, 26 Apr 2018ok try only the cache partition wipe.
see my post dated 24apr 2018 to Qadeer
do steps 1 - 8 ... morePerforming the "wipe cache partition" do wipe and reset the apps memory?
I know how to do it, just don't know if the memory will be reset, so I may backup my data 1st before doing. I got other working backup phone for doing such action, unless go deeper into something like TWRP recovery.
