Since HTC U Ultra was first launched, the smartphone industry was very optimistic of the outcome about the company's newest flagship. It was made with impressive features, but recently has enough issues that can pull down the excellency features of the device. HTC U Ultra is a strong competitor against other smartphones but has major issues; its actual functionality is really disappointing.

According to Stuff, HTC U Ultra was powered by a Snapdragon 821 processor and has a relatively large 5.7-inch Quad HD CD display. The device was also equipped with a 64GB of internal storage with its 4GB of RAM. It features a 12MP frontal camera and an UltraPixel 16MP rear camera. HTC U Ultra also wears a USB Type-C port along with its Qualcomm Charge 3.0.

Critics have stated that HTC U Ultra doesn't have a waterproof feature which has become a fast-growing standard in any flagship devices. The device's 3000mAh battery can't stand and just too weak to support the large device; poor battery life. Another thing, its headphone jack is gone; a feature that's quite controversial in the market.

HTC U Ultra is also arguably too big to be a comfortable handheld device, unlike units that are of the same size where it didn't make up for it in terms of the device's width. The device measures 162.41 x 79.79 x 7.99 mm and can be carried at 170 grams; too big and too heavy for being a handheld device.

Android Police pointed out that the HTC U Ultra is not a horrible device but the market out there in terms of its features, specs, and price are so competitive. If one issue might emerge in any device it will be a big impact on its sales. Well, the HTC U Ultra is a great looking device and available in sapphire blue color.
