HTC is in trouble

HTC U Ultra

from TechSpot
There are too many problems with the HTC U Ultra for me to recommend it. It has a larger-than-average screen that will appeal to those who prefer big phones, but I see no reason to purchase this handset over alternatives like the LG V20 and Huawei Mate 9. The U Ultra is a massive handset, far bigger than is necessary for a 5.7-inch phone. Its build quality and use of materials is excellent, but the large glass back panel makes the phone slippery and hard to hold. It’s also an enormous fingerprint magnet, which will annoy those that like keeping their phone clean... Full review

Looks nice, features mostly work well

HTC U Play

from The Inquirer
Overall, the HTC U Play is fine. On the plus side, it looks stylish and takes good photos that look particularly bright on its HD display. However, its performance is on the slower side of average, the battery doesn't last the day, it's slippery as heck and it doesn't have a headphone port. For just under £400, that doesn't seem good enough... Full review

A stylish, relatively solid mid-range handset

HTC U Play

from Notebookcheck
HTC's U Play is a solid mid-range smartphone, but the competition now offers more. Users who find a high-tech headset, personal assistant, and high-resolution front camera convincing arguments will get a stylish smartphone. However, they will also have to accept the mediocre battery life and slightly moderate performance... Full review

Stylish looks, good selfie cam

HTC U Play

from V3
It's hard to figure out who HTC was aiming this phone at – it's a decent mid-ranger, but there's better out there for the same price or less. It's not bad by any means, but like HTC's terrible puns, it's probably not going to delight U... Full review

Disappointment by a thousand cuts

HTC U Ultra

from The Verge
"Mostly forgettable" is a good way to sum up the U Ultra in its entirety: it has fine performance and battery life, but that doesn’t make up for its unfinished feel and odd design decisions. It even feels like HTC itself would like everyone to forget about this phone when its next major device arrives... Full review

Simply way too expensive to recommend

HTC U Play

from NDTV
The HTC U Play is a neat little device with striking looks and smooth all-round performance. It has a good display, the cameras are very capable, and battery life is not too shabby for such a small body. The phone will be going on sale in the second week of April, according to HTC. We weren't able to get any definitive timeline for the rollout of an Android Nougat update, but it should be in the works... Full review

A rather eye-catching device

HTC U Ultra

from VR-Zone
The HTC U Ultra is a decent smartphone, that tries its best to be a media phablet. It is certainly a powerful smartphone with little issues apart from a shorter than average battery life, but with a competitor such as the LG V20 in the market, the HTC U Ultra may have difficulty establishing a strong foothold in the market. Perhaps its liquid metal design might be what some consumers are drawn towards when compared against the LG V20’s more plain and average design... Full review

Good ideas, bad timing

HTC U Ultra

from Pocketnow
We've tried to be as objective as we can with this review. On its own, the HTC U Ultra is a gorgeous device, with one of the best screens I've used, and an awesome camera combo. This would've been amazing smartphone for 2016, but in 2017 the trend of design is more geared toward ergonomics, and the HTC U Ultra is just not an easy device to handle... Full review

Good display, smooth user interface

HTC U Ultra

from The Mobile Indian
HTC has tried to make project itself in a different perspective with a new design language. The smartphone has its hits and misses, which place it in no man’s land, especially with a price tag of Rs 59,990. It’s like its strong and weak points goes hand in hand. On one side, it comes with a good display, but flawed by the reflective screen, a good camera but flawed by some oversaturation, a good performer but flawed by overheating and last but not the least, a good user interface flawed by Sense Companion app...

A very pleasant design with simple but functional interface

HTC U Play

from PhoneArena
The U Play ticks all the boxes in its segment, save for a few camera mishaps, so if you are pleased with its premium design, and don't mind paying a bit extra, it's a nice choice in the midrange category... Full review

Best phone I've had

HTC Desire 601

Of the eight (8) phones that I have had over the course of ten years, I have never had one better. I had it for a few months shy of a full two year term.

Of the eight (8) phones that I have had over the course of ten years, I have never had one better. I had it for a few months shy of a full two year term. For me, this phone was as fast as the major brand phones (S series, iPhone,etc.) But at a fraction of the cost. The best thing about it was the dual front speakers, I could have it on one level of volume and it was so clear and loud. The speed of the phone was incredible, and it rarely crashed, glitched, froze, or otherwise underperformed for me. Then I made the stupid mistake of "upgrading" to a Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime for school. It was NOT worth it, this HTC is better tenfold than that stupid Galaxy phone. Only had that Galaxy phone for 2 months and I want my old HTC back. The message of this story, NAME BRAND IS NOT ALWAYS BETTER!!

Bad, Stupid, not Accepted at all!

The HTC Desire 516 Dual sim is one of the worst Smartphones! Based on my experience, and after using the phone for 8 month, i can't recommend anyone to buy this phone. First, there's the Apps transfer issue: You cannot move or transfer any of your apps from the internal memory to the SD Card. Now if the phone is supported with 8,16,32 GB of internal memory, i could accept such option, but with 2 GB internal memory! That's totally stupid. If you have installed just the most famous applications that everyone use (Whatsapp, Facebook, Viber, File Explorer, and other built-in and Google apps) you will not be able to install any other specialized app you probably need. What can i give as a mark to this stupid option? 1/10. Second, why the company insists that the internal memory is 4 GB, and the users cannot access more than 2 GB? I am surprised for such dumb situation, and it makes HTC look so Stupid! As i understand from several reviews, many of the Desire 516 Dual Sim faced this problem, with no clear answer of it: Is there anyway to access the full 4 GB? Or it's a lie that the phone has a 4 GB memory? So, as a result, the memory will earn 3/10. Third, the Camera performance. It's accepted in Good lightning conditions, not Very good, and certainly NOT PERFECT. it's just OK. On the other hand, and on bad lightning conditions (such as in the night) the camera performance is so bad, and that because of the low brightness produced by the LED Flash. Bad camera, it will not earn more that 3/10. Fourth, i can say that the overall performance of the phone is "OK". i don't have any problem of slow performance. It's not so fast, but it's not slow. It's "OK". What i mean by "Overall Performance" is how quick the phone is opening and closing certain application, how much time does it take to accomplish a task with certain application...etc. However, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 Processor, i couldn't expect more. My mark here will be 6/10. Fifth, the touchscreen. Also "OK", not "Bad" and not "Perfect". It's stable, and haven't any problem with multitouch tasks. The touchscreen deserves 6/10. Maybe there's one good thing about the phone, and it's the design. The design is simple, you get all your necessary things where you expect them (Power button, volume buttons...) and it express the HTC design line. As a result, i will give this phone 4/10 as a total mark. I wouldn't recommend this phone to any one. This is not a Good Mid-Range phone, this a Bad phone whatever the category of classification is.

HTC Hate This Cell-phone

About HTC

High Tech Computer Corporation, or HTC, is a major player in the wireless marketplace. Originally HTC made phones for other manufacturers, but more recently has made a big splash by putting their own name on an array of exciting, cutting edge devices.

Show more

HTC’s cell phone focus is generally the high end devices with the very latest technology, although as a manufacturer for other companies they made a whole range of phones.

During 2007 and 2008 HTC became one of the most talked about cell phone manufacturers and continues to create excitement based on their novel smartphones and, more recently, touch screen interfaces.
