Good performance, excellent camera

HTC U Ultra

from NDTV

The U Ultra is meant for buyers who don't have any budget limitations and don't care about detailed specifications. It's a statement piece, and as such, it succeeds. It does score well for its design, display, and camera, but subjectively, you don't get a lot of the finesse that you do with other existing phones. With its awkward second screen, overall bulk and ordinary battery life, and with a marquee feature like Sense Companion up in the air, it's very hard to recommend this phone at this price. If you do care about getting the most bang for your buck, our best advice is to wait at least... Full review

This gorgeous big phone costs too damn much

HTC U Ultra

from Cnet
The U Ultra is a fully capable device. The 5.7-inch Quad HD display is gorgeous, the speakers are loud and the fingerprint sensor is fast. The camera is decent and while the Snapdragon 821 processor may not be the latest and greatest, the phone's performance was never an issue. It all comes down to the price and size of the device. It's simply too big to hold comfortably and too expensive for what it offers. When you pay a premium price, you expect premium features. This isn't the case with the U Ultra... Full review

HTC U Ultra review

HTC U Ultra

from Android Authority
The HTC U Ultra brings top tier specifications, a great camera, and dual displays to the high-end smartphone market, but for $750, it lacks any truly compelling features and becomes more difficult to justify with the removal of the headphone jack, small battery, and lack of ingress protection...

Bad decisions in a beautiful body

HTC U Ultra

from Engadget

I can't stress this enough: The HTC U Ultra is not a bad device. It's beautiful, well-built and plays home to a lot of good ideas. I think HTC was right to build a big phone, and the way it wants to subtly integrate an AI assistant into that second screen is genuinely smart. It's just unfortunate that the good ideas here have been obscured by bad design decisions and what seems to be a terminal a lack of focus. Now, it's very, very possible we'll see another flagship phone from HTC before the year is over. For the company's sake, I hope it takes a hard look at what the U Ultra does and does... Full review

All that glitters

HTC U Ultra

from GSMArena
The HTC U Ultra is a fine phone and we enjoyed our time with it. But we had to return our review unit and we'd be reluctant to pay HTC's asking price to get it back. You see, the U Ultra picked a fight with some of the best 2016 flagships and didn't win. And the 2017 flagships are already arriving. And we'd forgive all of that if the price was decent - what HTC is charging is not going to fly - not on the enthusiast's market where the top-dollar purchases are made... Full review

A beautiful group of questionable decisions

HTC U Ultra

from Android Community
HTC made about 80% of a great flagship smartphone, but is choosing to sell it for 100% of a flagship price. Time after time, HTC continues to absolutely nail the basics: excellent design, perfect hardware execution, a top-notch display, great internals and fast software are all here. But then there are odd stumbles: no headphone jack, puzzlingly weak low-light camera performance, a small battery and distractingly tacked-on "artificial intelligence" software... Full review

Not so great camera and performance that is always marginally lacking

HTC U Ultra

from Fone Arena
The HTC U Ultra is a drop dead gorgeous phone. If nothing else, the design alone is something that truly sets is apart. From the beautiful blue color and the ultra glossy back panel, the U Ultra almost looks like a piece of jewellery. Unfortunately, that’s more or less the best aspect of the HTC U Ultra... Full review

As confusing as it is pretty

HTC U Ultra

from Android Police
The U Ultra is pretty, expensive, and flawed. It's a shame, because I think HTC's design team is still doing good work here - the Ultra is undeniably striking, and I've received many questions about the phone during my test period. Unfortunately, that interest tends to fade quickly when I start describing the battery life... Full review

This beauty is overpriced

HTC U Ultra is a gorgeous looking phone, and it works like a charm. It comes with the latest Android Nougat 7.0 with the Assistant already here on this phone. The camera is great, though not yet in the iPhone league... Full review

Expensive and feels a bit half-baked

HTC U Ultra

from PC Magazine
The HTC U Ultra is a gorgeous phone with powerful hardware and some unique features. But it doesn't feel finished. It doesn't ship with a headphone adapter, HTC's Sense Companion isn't ready yet, and camera performance clearly needs some fine-tuning... 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.

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.
