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





HTC as a company has been struggling for more than a few years. We know that, which is likely part of the reason they can't afford to compete in the mid-range market. 

At $749 the U Ultra is too expensive for what it has to offer. At $499 it would at least have a chance to succeed. Even the 5.9-inch Huawei Mate 9 with two cameras is only $599.

The HTC U Ultra has specs that are actually below the OnePlus 3T which was released in November of 2016 for $439. See the problem? It's already outdated and outmatched while being overpriced. 

Users are better off getting the HTC 10 used, OnePlus 3T or waiting for the LG G6 or Galaxy S8 in 2017. Honesty is brutal, we know.

    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.
