HTC U Play Description


HTC decided to give CES a miss and is instead holding its own standalone event this year, where it is expected to launch two of its much anticipated smartphones. The new series has already been teased by the brand and happens to be the U series. With this new lineup, the Taiwanese handset is targeting both mid and high end segment of Indian market. Codenamed Alpine, HTC U Play is the more affordable out of the two. Here is brief overview of the device for those who might be interested in this device.

Why Should You buy?

Top notch cameras: HTC handsets have always been known for their cameras and picture quality produced. The cameras on HTC U Play is no different as it comes with a 16 Megapixels camera on both front and rear panel. We can expect the camera quality to be pretty good considering the reputation of the brand. It is being touted that the device will leave Google Pixel behind when it comes to DxOMark rating.

Signature HTC Design: The best USP of all in any HTC device happens to be the design and makes of the handset. Since the beginning of time, HTC handsets have always been beautiful and as premium feeling as they get. From little we have seen of the device from the leaked images, HTC U Play looks one of the finest handset made by the brand.

Android Nougat: There are not many handsets out there that comes with the latest iteration of Android pre-installed in them. HTC U Play would be the first of the crop to come with the latest iteration of the operating system.

Why Should You Not buy?

No Headphone jack: While the handset is definitely sleek and beautiful, it comes at a cost, which is a deal breaker for many. This is the same drawback that the Apple iPhone 7 and Plus came with and criticised for. The HTC U series of handsets are missing an audio jack, which means you cannot use your personal handsfree with it or more importantly, charge the handset and use the headphone simultaneously.
