This phone is D.O.A.,and HTC is finished,very soon.They deserved it.They ve got too greedy with this one.The phone doesnt offer anything,just their copycat secondary display,for an EXTRAORBITANT price.They are done.
5.7 inches (~69.7% screen-to-body ratio) and not even a headphone jack ....did sane person wrote this line :
''And while it is not part of the current "mini-bezel" trend, the bezels are fairly slim. ''
Not gonna lie that main camera is right up there with the best of them. Battery life is pretty average for 2017 if the price is ok this is an easy recommend.

HTC one max: 22:13h, 11:20h, 13:11h > 81h
HTC ... moreThe Endurance rating is roughly the time the phone will last when you use it for one hour of calling, one hour of video watching and one hour of web browsing per day. It also takes into account the standby battery draw which is a rather important component as it's almost constant throughout the time the phone is on.
So call+web+video DOES NOT equal Endurance rating.
Call+web+video+standby power draw equals the Endurance rating.

Come one, guy. Almost all of t... moreI'm not comparing with any phone, and I like Mi5 more than this overpriced product. I'm just impressed by the optimization by both HTC and Qualcomm, because battery is very small compared to the screen size which is near 6 inches when always on display is also counted and pixels more than QHD. Htc 10 sd820 +5.2"QHD +3000mah = 66h
HTC U ultra :Sd821 +5.7" QHD +always on display =81h
Note 7 : exynos (which has much better battery life than snapdragon)
8890+ 5.7" QHD +3500mah =90h
And also, overall ratings I still say are impressive. No Matter how much u r using the phone and what is your usage pattern in terms of browsing, video etc, the standby Time wil always matter so it's most important.

I was surprised by the 81 hours endurance but it must be because of the excellent stand-by times since the individual browsing and video times are pretty average.
If u dont like iphone or samsung get huawei p10,or lg g6,but not this one.For me p10 is the best choice.
"2160p videos are annoyingly capped at 6 minutes long" lol no buy, save your money for other phone Pal!
Seriously, who is running HTC R&D department (if they have any)? None of this phone's ability (of lack there of) make it a convincing buy. This is one of those where no feature is done right and everything is messed up from design to size to hardware to price. I don't know how and why HTC even greensignaled this phone at all?
I was really excited about the Hi-Res audio option in contrast with the mono low-quality audio found at most phones...but with all that studio-quality sound the wind made it hard to listen, it's terrible
Probably the worst device HTC ever made. If you like HTC - get HTC 10 . But this Ultra... Need to be recalled from market not to harm HTC reputation.

Come one, guy. Almost all of the chinese 'flagships' do better than this
Mate 9 is the best flagship today!
HTC will probably not exist next year, because they can no longer compete in any level, budget or flagship or...? HTC U Ultra is far too expensive!
