Design and display

Liquid surface design

HTC’s U Ultra features an amazing design. When the rear of the phone catches the light, it reflects different colours with the multi-layered glass rear. 

Two displays

Just above the main Quad HD display is a secondary screen for notifications. It gives you access to messages, emails, and contacts without interrupting the rest of your mobile experience.  


Better quality selfies than ever before

Next to the secondary notification screen there’s a 16MP camera, which will deliver top quality selfies. It also means video-chatting apps like Skype and Google’s Duo will show you in Full HD resolution. 

A camera to shout about

HTC has always built great cameras for it phones, and the trend continues with the U Ultra. The 12MP sensor features optical image stabilisation, for super smooth video, and it’s accompanied with a bright dual tone LED flash. 

Under the hood

Your new virtual assistant

Sense Companion is HTC’s virtual assistant. It’s always learning from you and is built to make life that little bit easier. It’ll remind you to grab a brolly if it’s forecast to rain, or it can book a table at a restaurant on your behalf. 

Super speedy charging

The U Ultra’s battery capacity is a very impressive 3,000mAh, and it supports fast-charging technology. So even if you’ve only got 20 minutes before you head out to power up, it’ll be plenty to see you right through the night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HTC are so underrated!!! This phone is has an amazing camera and brilliant sound. As for the screen, one of the best I have ever seen. Why waste your money on an iPhone 7 plus or wait for the Note 8.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I bought iPhone 7 plus thinking things might of changed since I had one 6 years ago but they haven't. Still boring. I was debating between Samsung and Htc u ultra and I am so pleased buying this bad boy. Wow, the resolution is absolutely amazing, best I've seen on any phone. The size could be a bit bigger but that is just my opinion. Android is so customisable that you practically have office on the palm of your hand. Definitely recommend it. One thing though Apple provide headphones adapter for 3.5 jack users but htc doesn't and I am struggling getting one but wireless is always an option
