HTC caused quite a splash in January when it unveiled the U Ultra, its latest flagship.
Last year’s top model, the HTC 10, was widely praised as a good-looking, high performance Android phone but struggled to stand out among heated competition, and has not seemed to revive the Taiwanese company’s fortunes. While it ticked all the right boxes, in a world of curved screens and powerful handsets available at low prices, it could be accused of playing it safe.
No such claims can be made about the U Ultra. It ditches the 10’s metal body for glass, has a massive 5.7-inch display, adds an intriguing second screen at the top and follows the iPhone in getting rid of the headphone jack.
