HTC U Ultra Specs & Price In Kenya


HTC’s new U Ultra smartphone has a stunning curved glass back, infused with colours in multiple layers for a deep, rich, eye-catching effect. However, this phone is bulky and extremely slippery. The size is due to it having a 5.7-inch QHD primary screen plus a secondary screen above it, which doesn’t serve much purpose. Its light, with a 3000mAh battery that provides just about average runtime. Performance is good and the camera is excellent. You get Android 7.0 but the promised Sense Companion UI assistant is half-baked. Read detailed HTC U Ultra review

HTC U Ultra Specs Review

The massive 5.7 inch screen has s resolution of 1440×2560 pixels.  HTC shifted from all metal design to a glass back panel.  Generally speaking, this phone has an excellent design.  However, the glass back makes it slippery and difficult to hold.

HTC U Ultra runs on Android v7.0 Nougat.  It is powered by Qualcomm MSM8996-Snapdragon 821 chipset with 4 cores. The CPU is supported by 4G of RAM.  This hardware arrangement keeps it par with most smartphone in its price range.  You should expect all your applications to run smoothly on this phone.  HTC U Ultra provides 65GB internal storage space. This is adequate space for apps, music & videos.  If you need more storage space, you can use a micro SD slot to expand storage space (up-to 256GB).

The HTC U Ultra has very impressive cameras. It comes with a 12MP rear camera and 16MP front facing camera. These cameras are reasonably impressive. They capture images with excellent detail and solid color accuracy.  They also p[perform very well in low light conditions.

The HTC U Ultra comes with a 3000mAh battery. This is a little underwhelming when you consider the size of the screen.  However, when the phone is fully charged, it can power it through a whole day of moderate use.
