Well done HTC. Perfect rip off from Sammy and LG. Kudos for that. 👏👏👍👍
You better stop making phones. That's better for you. You yourself are spoiling your "once had" reputation.
Having a glass back without wireless charging and removing the jack on a phablet size phone that is non waterproof, with only a 3000mah battery - just suicidal. Somebody is looking to killoff this company which I personally really love. They could have at least used round lenses on both phones to not look like Samsung as much. Hope that the "htc 11" uses aluminum build sturdy as the 10 keeping the jack and using IP 67.
No home button and bottom bezel introduction would have made the appearance much smoother. Now when you look at the screen you instantly see huge black bezels. It's disappointing to see this after Xiaomi's triumph with their device last year.
This mobile... BIG disappointment from HTC. Why? Present this smartphone as something new, and it´s going to be available in march? With snapdragon 821? Great HTC, Great, applause. Have you ever seen price like this? Smartphone with QHD resolution and 5,7 inch display with only 3000 mAh battery :D Really not my cup of tea :D or coffe, whatever...
very nice phablet. Secondary screen is nice. CGG5. SD 821 is very strong(best qualcomm yet) Cameras are good. battery is a somehow low capacity (maybe sd 821 and secondary screen help it a lot-a thing we should see into). good
Am not an HTC fan at all always attracted to samsung or sony or huawei but this time i liked this U ULTRA i think it should have a larger battery
I'm no LG fan, actually I would never buy one, but damn! HTC is such a lame copycat!
And I used to be a big HTC fan! Just die already HTC! U suck!
Now I'm in team Sony and I have to say it is waaaay better than those copycats..
I'm not trolling, I'm just pointing to the truth.
Xiaomi Mi Note 2 or Xiaomi Mi 5s Plus
This phones folds into HTC U
Apparently HTC does not want to make money.
I have owned HTC phones for the past 7 years... but I am disappointed in the current flagship. The U Ultra seems to be a Flagship for 2016... No AMOLED Display, No Snapdragon 835 and a 3000mAH battery.. I was too eager about the HTC Ocean concept.. but this new AI gimmick does not seem to be that path breaking.. I need to switch my device but the U Ultra does not seem to be very convincing.. The phone is just not feature rich enough to justify a 749$ price tag...
Sapphire edition will be released later this year but by then, every competition would have released their flagship models bearing the snapdragon 835. And even LG is reportedly hopping on the waterproof bandwagon for G6.
come on HTC...you took away your best part 'front facing speakers' why did you do that!?? and this phone look like Samsung phonefrom the back if you didnt put the HTC logo on...im disappotined.
OMG what happened to the battery? with that resolution and secondary display. Not so "ultra" after all...
Plz gsm area make hate button to make hate for this company and ugly phones
Let us hope HTC will bring something amazing this year! 3 flagships a year sounds interesting. I hope at least one of them will have IP rating. HTC flagships lacks this feature.
I also hope this one will not be that huge. A 160-162 mm length is very big. Companies should watch what Xiaomi did last year with the Mi Mix.
Okay HTC judging from the rumours(Will update if any of my information is wrong due to official press), this is not shaping up as well as I hoped it to be.
1.No Headphone jack, but somewhat excusable because they have exceptional audio.
2. Design and features seemed to be copy and pasted onto this "Ultra" phone. AHEM the secondary screen that totally does not scream the V Series from LG, the back that doesn't look like a modern Samsung phone, and they have the confidence to just slap the HTC logo and call it theirs. This is more subjective, but HTC was a innovator of the android market back then, and now they are stealing designs from the copycats themselves!
3. 4GB RAM. I mean that in itself is fine, but this is 2017. Apps are only going to be heavier, and even 4GB won't cut anymore. Only Apple can make that multi-tasking with 4GB work in 2017. With their competitors using 6-8GB of ram the first half of this year, HTC is shooting themselves in the foot. You may argue, 4GB is enough for you, but then why pay a pretty penny if you're not going to use your phone to its fullest? Just buy a damn cheap phone then lmao.
4. More of a personal complaint, but 6.0" screen. Maybe 5.7", but might as well have a mini-tablet. The battery would've been impressive for a 5.7", but judging from the screen's enormous size and its QHD screen, it'll be a hour over average at best.
I'd rather pay for an LG V20 for a powerhouse than this phone. But who knows, rumours are rumours and we will have to wait until Thursday.
