While I did not expect the HTC U Ultra to have any wow factor this year considering that its launch was pretty quiet with LG taking over the show with the launch of LG G6 at MWC, the HTC U Ultra actually impressed me a LOT.
Okay, so what is great with HTC U Ultra?
HTC U Ultra is the next flagship phablet that rivals bigger smartphones like LG V20 and Galaxy Note 7. With Samsung’s Note 7 gone bizarre with its exploding batteries, there is now a hole to be filled and HTC U Ultra fits the bill for those of you who prefer larger-sized smartphones. In fact, there’s no other flagship phone with 5.7-inch screen launched this year and last year other than the LG V20. And no, I don’t consider cheap Chinese budget phones to be in the same phablet class (that’s reserver for the “budget” phablet class).
