HTC U Ultra’s Launch
HTC U Ultra was released in February 2017 before Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6. The phone was geared up with lots of new and incredible features to compete with the other smartphones. But after the release of various flagships from various mobile phone manufacturers HTC U Ultra faced a tough time in the mobile market.
Price Decreased by 20%
Moreover, the price of the flagship was initially announced as (PKR 78528/-) $749. Which was quite reasonable at that time against its features. But, due to lack of sales, HTC has made a tough decision of decrease in its price. The price of the flagship is dropped by 20%. Furthermore, now you can get HTC U Ultra in (PKR 62802/-) $599.
Most of all, the U Ultra now costs as much as (PKR 5242/-) $50 less than the LG G6 as well as (PKR 12581/-) $120 less than the Samsung Galaxy S8.
As, ever since its launch, HTC U Ultra has failed to get enough momentum. Moreover, some of the technical faults which the reviewers found are
- Lack of a headphone jack disappointing,
- Its second display gimmicky
- It’s camera sub-par
Moreover, the scratch-prone glass design of the phone (which is not water or dust proof) matches nowhere near the quality or looks of the Galaxy S8 or the LG G6.
With the price drop in place, the phone finally has one major advantage over its competitors, though, it still doesn’t guarantee a shift in fortunes.
