i'm gonna be buying one of these if it can last for a decade. thing is a lot of phone is getting out and this can be obsolete for just a year. too bad.
Talk about suicide don't they learn from blackberry and Nokia ouch 😴
Sapphire is very easy to manufacture, so they should have only added $100 more. No one is amazed by it, though it is the first time. Maybe if Apple would have done it everyone would have said wow !! Sapphire !! How's that possible !! Apple has done it again !!
HTC is trying to add value to the product through price... Please, leave this strategy for Apple! Your brand is not strong enough :(
Htc should just quit making phones all together and focus on their Vive VR
Sapphire, Sapphire, who and how many want Sapphire??!!! Heh HTC, are you stupid??? Do they even watch some of these reviews on YouTube at all?? Geez!!
Anonymous, 20 Mar 2017I would have believed. But you said that fruit company again. Any android will doWhat I'm trying to say is that even when iPhones are extremely expensive, at least the products deliver something worthy for the price. For instance, iPhone 4 and 4s were very expensive during their launch, around the same price as the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus did. But look how long Apple supported the iPhone 4 and 4s with software updates. From iOS 5 until iOS 9, it was supported. That's a 4-year guaranteed update, and even Google's own Nexus and Pixel linep only does up to 2 upgrades. How about HTC? What's the selling point of this $750 POS? Nothing, literally nothing
Good luck with that, HTC. Might as well quit while you're ahead and just focus on VR.
Sapphire glass won't help the phone bend like a sponge cake. Another fail from HTC.
what's going on with htc 11...anyone knows? well, i hope it will bring something new and better because if it's going to be like U then I think we can definitely say htc is going to die very soon.
i think it is good smartphone, i no will buy it because i think what the galaxy S7 is very more good over HTC U Ultra.
SkyMeow, 20 Mar 2017What a boring design with boring spec. As long as the design is practical, so looks does not matter. Practicality and perfection comes before everything else, no matter how much specs and design you put into a phone. Bruce Lee's philosophy stated "throw away what is impractical, and absorb what is practical".
methinks HTC Ultra is not a flagship.however, HTC 11 is on the way. HTC can't slowly die just like that. even though HTC has invested a lot in Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL and last year I was tempted to buy HTC Google Pixel XL because its from HTC but then I've never used any phone that is branded HTC.so I'm waiting for htc 11. In my country( South Africa) we don't even have HTC 10 and so could we have the upcoming HTC 11? I seem not to understand how HTC does business. they must just tell us that their business is close so that we can move on. If htv dies today,I'll go straight to iPhone without changing to any brand. so for Samsung they'll never have my cent because I have seen and heard people using Samsung and after few months they complain about their phones. I've never complain about HTC except camera or battery but the performance is excellent.Nonetheless htc for life no matter what
From GSMARENA: "ThereĀs no indication when the 128GB/Sapphire Ultra will visit other countries". Seriously!!!, as if they are having huge success in USA. Don't go to other countries and in that way you might be able to minimize some losses.
