HTC U Ultra

70/100
If it were a third cheaper, the HTC U Ultra would be a compelling alternative to the upper echelon of flagship smartphones. But at an outright price of $1,199, the HTC U Ultra struggles to go toe-to-toe with this year's cream of the crop, especially given the lack of water-resistance and the bezel heavy design.
