I Just want you to know I have the USA factory unlocked version of this phone which I bought from HTC USA on pre-order last year and I have no Oreo software lag. I did do a cache partition wipe and clean install.
As for stock of this phone...... The price was dropped & then the phone was disconnected on HTC USA in 2017 before the Oreo update. Ohho protection was discontinued in June 2017
I cracked my back glass in April 2017 and was covered under ohho protection but they didn't even have replacement stock so I had to buy the back glass on eBay in July 2017.
Not to mention the U 12+ is out now so sellers need to get this discontinued phone our of there shop.
Those are the real reasons for the low price and no restocking in my opinion.

The vendor said there were some returns of U Ultra purchased after the Oreo release, claiming that mostly had problems like battery, lags, and slow downs upon update to Oreo.
Even told me that they are marking the price down, and no longer restocking due to this issue.
The vendor is reputable, as my previous phones i purchased with them are still all working and aged just fine. It is just unlikely for a vendor to 'warn' customers prior purchase.
I've been reading the comments/opinions here and on other U Ultra blogs regarding errors and bugs upon Oreo update. Seeing that there are potential risk upon update, I am not willing to take it just yet. I do need this phone to be working properly for the next 2-3 years just like the previous ones, I dont want to risk wasting money.
Regarding the security updates, primarily this is for hacking/bugs right?
Had a phone long stuck at Marshmallow and security patch is dated 2016, yet nothing bad has happened to me yet. I am the typical call, text, surf, game user. I strictly dont use my phone for financial or top confidential (except some social media) matter.

By not upgrading you are stopping your phone from getting Android security updates. And that would leave you open to attacks.
Staying on nougat means the security patch on your phone is from 2017......
Had bought this phone a week ago here in the Philippines.
The vendor no longer warranties for 'Damage due to Software Upgrades' due to viral reports regarding the Oreo Upgrade. Wherein this comment section proves to be true.
Thus i'm sticking to Nougat.
On the other hand, my feedback for my week long use of this phone...... Best Phone for around $300.
Dev, 20 May 2018Are there any bugs in Oreo update? shall I update or stick with Nougat?The secondary screen does not support the new app notification badges.
But that is more like a missing function than a bug
Tapsilog, 16 May 2018Do we need to download and update to oreo first before clearing the cache partition and factor... more1. If your phone is not behaving buggy now. You can do the download, then power of and wipe the cache partition, then do the ROM update. (no need to factory reset)
2. If you already have bugs you want to get ride of, download and install the the ROM, then do the cache partition wipe & factory reset.
3. If you have bugs after the ROM update that you didn't have before, wipe the cache partition & factory reset and do not use old system restore files. Install everything from scratch.

This phone is on OREO which is 2.21.....
It has no bugs in it as I can tell.
If you are getting problems after, clearing your cache partition & factory resting will resolve it. As most time it's cause by conflicts by old drivers left over in the cache partition.
Hi. Need ur opinion...
I just got the u ultra 2 days ago.
A notification appears asking me to download software update 1.64.401.3..
Is it a good update to accept.. Or does this new software have any drawbacks.. as battery draining or something else ?
