HTC U Ultra: 2 Reasons to Buy It, 5 Reasons Not To



If You Want a Great Camera

If You Want a Great Camera

If you want an excellent camera experience on your smartphone, the HTC U Ultra is a great choice. Well, at least for the first few months of 2017. HTC is using what's likely the same camera as the Google Pixel and Pixel XL. Which was awarded with the "Best Smartphone Camera Ever" in 2016. 

That being a 12 Megapixel lens with a large 1.55um sensor and a fast f/1.8 aperture. They also integrated phase detection auto focus, laser auto focus, and optical image stabilization. OIS is missing on Google's Pixel. Meaning it should be better than Google's own smartphone. There's a lot to love here for camera enthusiasts. 

Even better, the front-facing camera is a 16 UltraPixel Camera. Meaning it will take great selfies, has a pretty wide angle, 1080p Snapchat videos and Auto-HDR. 

If the camera is the most important aspect of your smartphone decision, the U Ultra is a good start. That said, we still don't know what Samsung will bring to the table in 2017 either.

    The HTC U Ultra is certainly a good looking piece of kit, but as you say when you compare it to similarly priced flagships from the likes of Samsung and LG it is behind the curve. I couldn’t agree more about the second screen being nothing more than a gimmick, one that I think that it will get very boring and possibly even frustrating after a short time.

    I used to be a big fan of HTC back when the HTC One M7 first came about but the company seem to be playing catch up at the moment.
