HTC U Play phone: full, in-depth review
Smaller is better with HTC's winning, mid-range, Android smartphone
- Looks great
- Good value
- Nice screen
- Decent battery
- No headphone jack
The HTC U Play is less divisive than its big brother. It's easier to use, does everything well and represents great value. It's also one of the prettiest phones ever made.
Price$ 799.00 (AUD)
The 2,500mAh battery is smaller than we’ve seen on many phones. Nonetheless, we were impressed with the battery as it effortlessly lasted a full day (and then some) – which is more than can be said for the average S8. This is likely down to the reduced power requirements of the chipset and the relatively small, 5.2-inch, relatively-low resolution, Full HD screen.
Fast charging will help with those who require more.
At $799 this is two-thirds the price of the HTC U Ultra and yet it has the best bits of that phone in an easier-to-handle package. Few will miss the advanced audio features or the second screen. Some will miss the UHD, half-inch-larger main screen though.
However, for the money, this is a gorgeous, good-value phone that does everything well. While the U Ultra split the field with its design choices, few people won’t like the Play. It’s a great, upper-mid-range, all-rounder.
