And now that you know, our tests will let you know if, in terms of features and functionality, this smartphone is right for you.
HTC provides us with a well-balanced phone here.This model is average, and will meet most of your needs.In conclusion, it is a good product.

What does mobility look like?
The main advantage of a smartphone is to be connected everywhere and therefore to be mobile. Beyond its telephone function, we expect it to be as good for surfing the internet and usable when travelling.
U Ultra 64 GB’s really small.Indeed, with its 5.7 inches, it is one of the smallest models currently available on the market.
It will be more difficult to click on this small area.Forget the videos, too.The primary use of this phone would be to make calls…
In addition, through its Wlan option, you can connect to wifi terminals.This means that the connection will be easier during your internet browsing.This smartphone has GPS.No more need for a map to get around a city or a country.Unless you’re in the middle of the desert.
It is sometimes convenient to have several phones in one. And this model can handle multiple Sims.This means that it is possible to have several active subscriptions in the device.This model allows you to manage several operators.An interesting option abroad.
Interesting point about this model is the presence of reinforced glass.This feature provides a scratch and impact resistant screen.It has almost become a necessity, as the probability of damaging his screen is so great.
Because of its battery, the range of this model is one of the worst.There is only 3000 mAh, which is low for normal use.As a precaution, you may have an external battery available nearby.
HTC has equipped this model with the fast charge feature.In a few minutes, you have the battery almost back up to speed.
The right choice for watching movies?
Smartphones have become the new televisions.It’s become a handy tool.The same goes for listening to music.Because of the power of smartphones and their connectivity, you can watch whatever you want.But not all phones are suitable for this purpose.
The U Ultra 64 GB is clearly made for multimedia use.A pleasure in terms of listening comfort and video playback.The colours are perfectly retranscribed on the 5.7 -inch screen.He’s playing evenly with the best TVs of the moment.It uses a display resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels, which with its screen size makes it ideal for movies and TV series.
It doesn’t seem that wired audio is a priority for HTC.No music like this, because this phone does not have a 3.5mm input for headsets.
Using its Bluetooth functionality, you can pair your phone with all the devices in your home (speakers, TV…).The result is very pleasant to the ear.
Finally, we deplore the absence of stereo speakers.
HTC’s smartphone: a good choice for making video calls?
Games are performance consuming.The same applies to the ever-increasing number of applications that reduce battery capacity.For smooth and responsive rendering on 3D video games, it is necessary to combine a good processor with a good graphics processor.In other words, the power of the technical components is essential to enjoy the game phases.
Our tests place this U Ultra 64 GB in the middle of the category.Even if the Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 821 (14 nm) processor is not of the latest generation, it is powerful.And with the graphics processor, the visual result is fluid.
The memory available on this model is average compared to competitors.In other words, we’re at 64 GB internally.But some of you will need more; that’s why HTC has left a free slot for a memory card.
Forget the long video game sessions on this model.The endurance of this model is one of the weakest.The power of 3000 mAH will require you to recharge during the day.
Applications also need powerful components.The challenge is to have an optimal reading comfort.Clearly, the display area and pixel density matter.Top-of-the-range qualities that you will find on this model.It has one of the best possible configurations: an 5.7 -inch, 513* ppi screen.This means that no matter what applications you download, and even if they are word, excel or pdf documents, you will have more details displayed on the screen.In the end, clear and fluid images.Isn’t that what everyone expects from their smartphone?
The last point on the functionality side is the presence of NFC.It is a means of payment with the smartphone.
Efficiency for audio and video
Having become an essential use of smartphones, the photo function has made great strides since the first generations.For a long time, manufacturers have been communicating about the millions of pixels their devices were equipped with.The ability to stabilize at the time of shooting or the Burst mode are also important points.Being able to retouch the obtained photos is appreciated.HTC has long been designing smartphones with top quality photo sensors.
It’s a surprise from HTC.There is thus only one lens, to be installed on this model.
The resolution of this model is not very efficient.A definition in 12 Mp, which is necessarily less good than on top-of-the-range models.Note that it does not have the HDR function which would have improved the images.
It’s the same with selfie pictures.The resolution for selfies or landscapes is really amazing.And with the software functions, you can even touch up the result.Indeed, when taking the picture, the U Ultra 64 GB’s sensor will capture all the points of the image according to the brightness, and the camera will process the image automatically and very quickly.
This smartphone has 64 GB, which is in the middle of the storage range on competing models.You will be able to save your music and even install applications.The amount of storage will be sufficient to meet your classic needs.
Finally, the U Ultra 64 GB…
This U Ultra 64 GB corresponds to the majority of use cases.Performing well, it almost reaches the level of the best.All in all, a good price/quality ratio.
