HTC U Ultra

Recommended Posts

Got an email stating that Sprint is offering 150 off, guess I can do that and sell the Amazon Echo Dots to get the price close to what HTC.com is offering with the HTC 10 buy back, if that's possible.

 

I am not too fond of the blue, probably will go with black.

 

Matching the HTC.com price through Sprint will be tough. 

 

Sprint is doing $696 plus the 2 echo dots and $150 trade in.

HTC.com is doing $649 + $50 off promo code + $250 trade in.

Hearing rumors that Uh Oh protection will not be available due to the phone having a IP67 rating. I guess that glass back is drop proof.

Ordered mine thru the Elevate link so early shipping. Would prefer to have the black one but since my 10 and A9 are both bricked and my M8 is wore out I decided not to wait.

The A9 died from being dropped several times a day without a case on it for close to a year (think I broke the charge port but to lazy to fix it). The 10 I managed to kill poking around in the modem and did something I shouldn't have.

How quickly will you receive the phone?

With the U Ultra they sent them out a week or two ahead of the rest but there's no set date.

Nice, I will see if I can join the Elevate group and jump on that early shipping bandwagon.

And now I've managed to break the screen on my M8 so hopefully they ship it soon before this gets worse. It's my last backup phone.

That appears to be a similar thing that happened to the Sony Xperia XA Ultra I had a while ago. Sony replaced it with a new one though.

Ohhhh man some Bo Berry Biscuits would be amazing right now!!

 

So I'm gonna wait a little bit on the U11 to see if Sprint puts out a nice deal on it like they're doing with the S8 (2 for 1 Lease deal) and the LG G5 (50% off). Especially since HTC.com isn't letting me do the TeamHTC trade in with my HTC 10  <_<

Mine broke from dropping my pliers on them. Luckily it landed handle first so it didn't shatter the glass.

 

If anyone is looking for some good side cutting pliers these from Southwire work great for cutting, hammering, prying and breaking phones.

Ah, they're in Sprint yellow!

 

Anyways, I hadn't seen the break in the phone until closer inspection after my post response to you. I just noticed the display image looking like what happened with my device after apparently using too much water on the cloth I was using to clean the display.

 

Although that is definitely bad that happened to your HTC. Hopefully your new device will be more durable, like the stronger devices used in tests conducted by JerryRigEverything.

Emmmm, fried chicken.  I need to get my screen repaired on my Nexus 6P again.  I know your pain!  I've never had Bojangles fried chicken.  It's on my TO DO LIST.   :drool:

    • Here's my multi-point theory on why Sprint isn't roaming on VZW for LTE: Fewer Sprint phones have B13 than B12, and at the point that you're roaming on another carrier you want that low-band signal, most of which is still B13 on VZW. VZW charges more for data roaming than AT&T does, and might not even let Sprint do LTE roaming. This is bolstered by the fact that e.g. FreedomPop uses AT&T rather than Verizon as the underlying network for its stuff...they wouldn't use it if it was expensive. Also, add the PH-1 to the list of unlocked/BYOD phones that likely have the same firmware as the Sprint version, and thus get WiFi calling (though the PH-1 doesn't have Calling Plus; fingers crossed that I get VoLTE). I've been in a few RF dead zones (yay hotels!) lately but have seen the phone drop down to native eHRPD rather than swap to roaming on e.g. T-Mo band 12, so my guess is that I won't see aggressive roaming to LTE until the VoLTE soft launch, and maybe not even then.
    • I'll be heading to the UK in a few months and am trying to figure out whether it's worth it to switch off of Open World (this'll be my first time out of the country, so it's not like I'm using CA/MX data anyway) and grabbing a week pass for while I'm there. Specifically, does anyone know which network Sprint roams on in the UK, and whether it's LTE roaming? If the roaming situation is less than ideal, I figure I'll keep Open World and swing by an EE or Three store to pick up a local SIM, using my 3-cent-per-MB Open World data to get there. But if I can get solid coverage on LTE, I'll gladly do the week pass thing to save the hassle of finding a SIM.
    • Pretty sure they can slowly repurpose LTE portion of M-MIMO to 5G nr so that shouldn't be a problem in the very long run. Just like Clear equipment, and those have served their purpose quite well over the last 6 years.
    • It is disappointing that Sprint does not have a not Massive MIMO 5G option.  I assume the price would be significantly less for less robust solution that would allow for both 4G and 5NR.  This would allow more places to have 5NR sooner.
    • I say that because I had a iPad pro 9.7 on Sprint that only liked 480p even in good areas but when I switched to Tmobile or At&t I would use 1080p.
