[Video] Unboxing the HTC U Ultra

The HTC U Ultra is technically HTC’s first premium phone for 2017, even it’s a little disappointing on paper. It’s still high end, but we just didn’t love the price point. HTC’s had some decent sales to counteract that, though.

It may not be enough to sway you away from that shiny new Galaxy S8, but there’s plenty to love about the U Ultra. Check out our unboxing to see how it looks in hand before you make any decisions.

Samsung preparing red tint, Wi-Fi updates for Galaxy S8 devices

Samsung appears to have pulled off most of what they were hoping for with the launch of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ this spring. The devices have been noted for nudging smartphone design in a slightly new direction with the sleek look and near bezel-less face and consumer interest has been high. The launch has not been without some smaller hiccups though. One issue that popped up almost as soon as some users got their devices were reports of screens with too much red tint to them. Another issue, that appears to be confined to the Korean market, are some issues with Wi-Fi connections. Already the manufacturer is readying a pair of updates to address these issues.

Moto Z2 Play leaks, confirms designs for the Moto Z2 family

If it’s not broke, don’t fix it, right?
