5 upgrade to the company’s previous flagship, the HTC U11. It offers updates to the U11’s design and hardware, including an improved screen and larger battery. But into 2018, with the threat of next-generation handsets, htc u ultra software update feels a little late in the game. But unless you hold the two back to back, you’re unlikely to notice the changes.
Liquid Surface’ design that debuted on HTC’s previous U Play and U Ultra handsets. It replaces the unibody metal design for which HTC was well known, with a combination of metal and glass. I’m still not completely sold on the new look for variety of reasons. For starters, although the black unit I tested looked super-swish out of the box, within minutes of picking it up, the rear of the devices was covered in smudges and fairly grubbly-looking.
In addition, the glass back feels like it’s been bolted on to the metal frame. Round the back you’ll find a fingerprint scanner that proved accurate and reliable throughout testing. But I still wouldn’t want to use them to listen to music as at max volumes since they can take on an acidic quality. The only handset to offer better audio is the Razer Phone. Despite being a dirt magnet, the phone is fairly rugged for a glass-backed handset.
The IP68 certification translates to a reasonable degree of water-resistance, although you wouldn’t want to go diving with it in tow. The screen is an upgrade on the regular U11’s 5. I’m seriously impressed that HTC has managed to load such a big panel into the device without having to radically increase its overall size. The screen remains LCD, rather than OLED, which means black levels aren’t quite as deep as seen on competing handsets such as the Samsung Galaxy S8 or Google Pixel 2.

However, whites are noticeably cleaner and colours are well represented. I didn’t see a noticeable shift to any side of the RGB spectrum. Top-notch maximum brightness levels also mean the screen offers contrast, despite the less inky blacks. U11 side by side and spent more time than I’d like staring at the two screens.
At this size, anything above FHD is going to look sharp and crisp. HTC says it the display will be HDR10-enabled through a software update later in the year, but at the time of review, it wasn’t available.
