The Honor 8 was one of the best mid-ranger devices of 2016 especially when it came to the camera performance, design and build quality.

What then separates it from a 6 month old model and more importantly, what makes it worth your consideration having launched within days of the LG G6 and Samsung Galaxy S8?

The number 5 seems to be quite problematic for the Koreans. Samsung faced some of the worst reviews ever for a flagship product and one of the worst sales performance in their flagship Galaxy S line-up with the S5. The S5 did bring in some improvements but those were minor and in the process almost made some bad decisions including larger bezels etc. All these small things led to very disappointing sales figures and Samsung knew that had to start afresh. Project Zero was born and eventually resulted in the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge devices which were a huge leap from their preceding model. They were a step in the right direction and Samsung has been doing everything perfectly well with their smartphones since except for the Note7 battery exploding issues which did shake things up a bit but still resulted in one of the most profitable years for Samsung with the S7 series.

What is more interesting is that HTC isn’t really calling this its flagship and maintains that it still has a lot more under its sleeve. Having spent some time with the U Ultra, here’s our thoughts on the device. Continue reading “HTC U Ultra Review”
