HTC has not really been in the limelight over the past few years. Last year Samsung put a major dent in the company’s release schedule by buying up the initial batch of Snapdragon 835 chips. Other manufacturers had to either delay their flagship release or settle for a last gen chip. HTC decided to release the U Ultra which was a great phone which happened to feature a last gen Snapdragon 821 chip. The phone also caught some flack for not making good use of internal space. The phone was oversized but lacked a headphone jack, wireless charging, water resistance, and probably should have packed in a larger battery. Some reviewers even urged HTC to go back to the drawing board.
