A very important aspect of the phone worth mentioning and which is perhaps one of the selling points of the HTC U ultra is the screen or if you like the screens , as the HTC U ultra is made of not one but two on board displays : first is the primary and large Super LCD 5.7-inch screen, with QHD (2560 x 1440) resolution, and a secondary and smaller 2.05-inch (160 x 1040) resolution display located just above the main display. the HTC U ultra is not the first nor second phone to feature such displays , we have seen it before on the LG V10 , LG V20 and the Japan only LG V34 isai Beat , but this is the first time such display is coming to HTC device .
Much like the secondary display on the LG V series , the HTC U Ultra secondary display house your contacts, apps, and notifications .HTC says the display is touch-sensitive and always on by default and should have no draining effect on the battery .
Other noteworthy features of the HTC U ultra include HTC’s Sense Companion software which utilizes an AI to learn about you and offer intelligent suggestions. It learns your most important contacts and apps, and surface related notifications on the second screen. It also recommends to you when to charge the phone, if your schedule indicates you may run out of power before bedtime.
The HTC U ultra much like the iphone 7 lacks the 3.5mm audio jack , but comes with USB Type-C with HTC BoomSound audio along with four microphones .
