HTC U Ultra: Receiving Bad Remarks

HTC U Ultra might sound an exciting new device for its fans. The device is no more than a blend of features from several other backbenchers. In addition, the battery provided (3,000mAh cell) is not enough to support the Quad HD 5.7-inch screen and the ‘second screen’ of 2-inches.

A source also proclaimed the new HTC U Ultra a combination of “failed and misguided ideas”.
