HTC U Ultra Review
While the net is buzzing about Apple and Samsung smart phones, I decided to take a break from these top cherry branded phones. I wanted to see how my childhood crush smartphone was doing- HTC smartphone.
In the past, the phone stood out not just for its performance but also for its sleek design and gorgeous outlook.
Scrolling forward to our present time, the HTC is out with its latest smartphone-the HTC U Ultra.
The phone lives up to the standard of design it claims to offer. Back cover looks almost like clear glass. This phone comes in 4 luminous colors-white, pink blue and black. Here, check out the pic:

But the blue in my opinion is the most gorgeous color. I love how the brand icon stands out while the blue illuminates a smooth ocean blue-light.
The phone is a sleek- 5.7 LCD screen topped off with an additional secondary screen. This is all thanks to the space that is available.
I want to talks about this “secondary screen”. Its very innovative. The secondary screen is a small screen displaying your customized notifications like birthdays, meetings or alarms.
If your phone is off this mini-screen still keeps displaying the date and time. Of course you can change display items.
The earphones are so cool. Don’t ever lose them! They are a set of earbuds that kick out great sound.
For better sound, U ultra has a software on the phone that customizes the audio profile based on ambient noise around you.

The battery is not that bad- 3,000 mah but HTC could have placed a better battery. Still the phone does have a quick charge system.
Display and CAMERA
The HTC U Ultra has got a 16 mega-pixel for the front camera. The front camera has got 7 different modes for your modes of selfie no matter what lighting you are in. In addition, the front side has got a panorama mode.
On the back side, the camera is 12 megapixels, optically stabilized, with a large aperture and a mixture of laser and phase detection auto-focus.

It’s got a multi-screen capability that runs smooth. The device is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 processor; this is technically last year’s chip which allows snappy performance. There’s 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, and you can expand memory with a micro SD card.

Now for the downside of this phone. The back-cover is slippery so the special case that comes with the box needs to be used for protection.
Also,I found the camera has difficulty when there is too much motion in objects. If your shooting for a race-this might be a problem to capture the right moment. But the camera had an easier time when shot from a distance.
Now, the phone does come with a proper earphone but sadly, you need to plug those buds into the USB port because there’s no headphone jack.
Ultra has plenty of room for a headphone jack-they could have included a headphone jack.
Overall the U series was intended to be made for YOU. Still, I feel that for $750, the phone is too pricey.
