HTC U Ultra


The U Ultra is the latest phablet from HTC. It aims to entice buyers away from the Huawei P10 Plus, and to fill the gap left by the Galaxy Note 7, by offering users a variety of unusual features.

HTC U Ultra review: Are two displays better than one?


The U Ultra feels a little over-priced, and with a new range of smartphones incoming - LG G6, Huawei P10, Samsung Galaxy S8, all of which might be

High quality design ; Unique looks ; Good camera performance ; Plenty of power ; Great sound quality and headphones

Ghosting in night mode ; Secondary display could be used a little better ; No 3.5mm headphone jack ; Software doesn't really suit this size of device ; Battery life is less than class leading ; Expensive

The HTC U Ultra sets out its stall in a strange position. It's a big screen phone from HTC that part embodies some of the company's previous traits (it's a Sense experience that's well-built), while introducing a new, unique finish. It's certainly...

HTC U Ultra review


This all-glass smartphone is seriously pretty. Just don't drop it

Glass design is a stunning ; Two-screen setup impresses ; Battery life is good

No dual cameras ; No headphone socket ; Sense Companion is confusing

HTC’s glass smartphone is a stunner to look at and almost as lovely to live with

HTC U Ultra review


A large phone that doubles its screens

Gorgeous QHD display ; Attractive design ; HTC Sense still a great UI

Glass feels a little thin ; A lot of repackaged tech ; Very expensive

HTC's latest phablet is has an attractive look and a lot of great ideas - including a second screen - but a lot is recycled tech here and it's hard to recommend when the HTC 10 offers a lot of the same at a lower price.

HTC U Ultra review


HTC goes glossy with new U Ultra dual-screen smartphone featuring Sense Companion AI. We go hands-on with the Android Nougat phablet.

HTC has confused me with this phone. The HTC 10 fixed the problems of the One M9 but the U Ultra is a Frankenstein device. When a phone gives a better impression powered off than on, you know you’re in trouble. It’s not a bad phone full stop, but it...

HTC U Ultra review: Gorgeous big phone costs too damn much


Don't be fooled: This isn't a flagship phone, it just has a flagship price.

The HTC U Ultra has a sharp design, crisp display and loud speakers. A secondary display gives quick access to notifications and app shortcuts.

The phone's premium price and large size make unsuitable for most people. There's also no headphone jack, it isn't water-resistant and its battery life is poor.

The U Ultra is missing too many flagship features to justify its high price.

HTC U Ultra Review: In Depth


HTC U Ultra Review: If you're after a supersized, super-powerful smartphone, you might want to consider the new HTC U Ultra. Here's our in-depth review.

Stunning display ; Good performance ; Attractive design ; Strong audio capabilities ; Decent cameras

Second screen lacks purpose ; No HTC Sense Companion at launch ; Needs one-handed mode ; Battery could be bigger ; Fingerprint magnet

At a glance, the tick list of the HTC U Ultra looks extremely promising. You can expect great performance with plenty of storage, it’s an audiovisual treat for both capturing and enjoying media, and has some standout design elements, but despite all of...

HTC U review: Hands on with HTC's new AI-laden flagship phone


HTC's latest phones, the U series, are about much more than just a new design

Will this be enough to make the HTC U one of our favourite smartphones in 2017? We’ll be able to say for sure once we’ve had one long enough to run battery and performance tests, but the early indications are that, once again, it’s a more than credible...

For such an expensive price, you'd expect top-notch quality from the HTC U Ultra mobile phone. But there isn't a direct link between price and quality, so it's worth reading our full review of this smartphone to make sure you don't splurge on a dud.

Hands on: HTC U Ultra and U Play February 16th, 2017 | by Nigel Chen Cellphones 1 The HTC U Ultra in Sapphire Blue, and the HTC U Play in Ice White. P


The U Ultra is HTC's flagship phone for 2017, whereas the U Play is a more affordable mid-tier offering that promises the same premium feel as the U Ultra.
