As you have observed, HTC phones, the One M9 and 10 have all-metal designs, but everything changes with the U Ultra. HTC uses what they call a ‘liquid surface design’, featuring a colourful glass and metallic back to stand out from the rest. HTC also offers protection using the latest Gorilla Glass 5 to shield against drops.

The HTC U Ultra boasts a 5.7-inch Quad-HD screen and a very detailed and vibrant display, making it excellent for watching movies and playing pokies or video games.

Also, the U Ultra is much lighter despite its large body, so it will not feel heavy in your hands.

Above the main screen and next to the camera, there is also a 2-inch secondary screen that shows notifications, apps, and shortcuts without interrupting the tasks on the main screen. You also won’t need the main screen to check for notifications when your phone is on standby. The smaller screen still has a resolution of 160 x 1040 to remain extremely detailed.

The Processor, Memory, and Performance

The HTC U Ultra offers the latest Snapdragon 821 chipset with a Quad Core CPU, which offers extremely fast performance. Being a flagship device with a top-of-the-end chipset means you’ll be able to handle nearly all intensive tasks.

The HTC U Ultra comes with 64GB of onboard storage and 4GB of RAM, so you’ll have plenty of space for your apps and media and be able to run many apps simultaneously.  As usual, there is a microSD slot if you require extra storage.

The U Ultra has a 12-megapixel back camera and a 16-megapixel front camera, making the U Ultra one of the better selfie cameras. While it may be surprising that the front camera has a higher resolution than the back camera, HTC’s back camera features an OIS sensor with an f/1.8 lens, offering excellent speed and low-light performance. The U Ultra also features selfie video and selfie panoramas to further take advantage of the powerful front camera.

The U Ultra can also record 4K video at 30fps without problems. In fact, HTC focused on recording in the production of the U Ultra, deciding to pack four Omnidirectional microphones to pick up sound quality accurately and crisply.
