Introducing the HTC U Ultra, this high-end smartphone from HTC offers a wide range of powerful features. To begin there is a large 5.7 inch touchscreen, this really helps bring the phone to life. Made with Corning Gorilla Glass, the screen is protected from life's knocks and bumps and should withstand most accidental scratches.
There is also a secondary ‘always-on’ screen that shows the date/time and notifications, without having to wake phone up, this allows you to save battery. There is a large 3000 mAh battery, which quotes a standby life of up to 312 hours but in reality even the heaviest of phone users will get a full days use out of it! Quick-charge is on hand to charge the battery to 60% in just 30 minutes.
The design of the phone is quite striking and different to the rest, it has a pearlescent glass rear this helps the phone stand out from the crowd, as well as giving it a premium high-end feel.
The HTC U Ultra has four high-sensitivity omnidirectional microphones that allow the phone to capture positional sound in your audio and video recording. This allows you to record sound in 360 degrees for impressive audio that allows you to relive the moment over and over. HTC have gone Ultra (as the name suggests) high-tech and have removed the headphone jack, and are now utilising the USB-C port for headphone connectivity. The U Ultra also has a 3D sound, giving high definition sound quality without the need for additional external speakers.
There is a 12 Megapixel camera with autofocus, a dual-LED flash, geo-tagging and face detection.
