HTC U Ultra: First 10 Things to Do

first 10 things htc u ultra

The HTC U Ultra is going to be a tough sell, I fully understand that. The phone is expensive, it’s not sold through a single US carrier, and HTC already told us to expect another upgraded phone in the near future with a Snapdragon 835. Still, we know that some of you will go through with buying a U Ultra (hopefully at a discounted price) and we’re here to help you out.

After unboxing the device earlier in the week, we’re now diving into the good stuff – the stuff where we help you get the most out of your new phone. With pre-orders of US models supposedly shipping, some of you may have devices on doorsteps within a matter of hours. For you, let’s dive into the first 10 things to do with your HTC U Ultra. 

In the clip below, we’ll walk through some basics, like tossing in a microSD card or setting up a fingerprint, but we’ll also cover Motion Launch Gestures, take you through the secondary ticker display settings, and make sure you utilize the included USonic earbuds and get a proper audio profile setup.

Let’s do it!

  • Cipearman

    I love the F*ck Yeah at the top.

  • instrument

    They did a great job making it shiny.

  • Josh Oberg

    Although this device isn’t perfect it’s not terrible…. We need Htc to keep the competition honest. But if they are going to cut corners… Cut the price

  • Meffaliss

    I LOVE the blue colour….. but why did you have to remove the headphone jack?!

  • aetmo

    First thing to do. Throw it in the trash and buy a better phone.

  • steadymobb

    The dust is already starting to accumulate around the camera edges

  • seattle tech

    When you can pick up a brand new s7 edge for $350-$450. This phone makes no sense.

    • illregal

      the s7 edge is pretty much worse in everything but maybe overall battery life. But samsung batteries degrade faster then HTC’s. so that’s short lived.

  • Stabby McKnifington

    I won’t buy this as I don’t need a phone, but outside of the Thunderbolt I’ve enjoyed every HTC I’ve ever owned.

  • mcdonsco

    Started watching this and about 30 seconds in, I thought, what the hell am I doing…It’s an HTC.

    • B!

      😂😂😂 For real.

  • libis54

    First thing to do: Return it and get something better.

  • Robert Ra’ Crawford

    Something Something Something HTC Something Something Darkside!

  • Michael Bassett

    Throw it over your shoulder and wait for a Galaxy S8.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    For all the downsides of the hardware…I bet that software is still buttery smooth. HTC can’t be beat there when it comes to 3rd part OEMs

    • Meffaliss

      I quite enjoy the software on my HTC 10. It’s quite smooth still!

    • Me

      Which is why I’m glad G got “stuck” with HTC instead of Hawaii.

      • SpadeX


        This better be an autocorrection.

        • Me

          Inside joke buddy

  • Orlando aka Pixel XL

    First thing to do is utilize the 14 day return policy and return the phone..

    • B!

      Actually just not get it & avoid the restocking fee.

      • Me

        Too bad it’s not available on carriers

        • MJ

          Why? So one could have added bloat to an already poor phone that is not a good value?

          • Me

            No restocking fee if they’re not on carriers

  • Howard Stern ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    first thing to do is to list this on ebay for 634.99.

    • sinfoman

      DAMMIT! Beat me to it.

      • Howard Stern ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        i took of a dollar so you could undercut HTC to gain more sales than them

        • I’ve earned 104000 dollars last year by freelancing on-line a­n­d I was able to do it by w­orking part time f­o­r few hrs /day.

            I was paid 104000 dollars previous year by working from my house and I manage to accomplish that by wo­rking part-time f­­o­­r 3 or sometimes more hours on daily basis. I was following an earning opportunity I stumbled upon from company that i found online and I am thrilled that I was able to earn so much money. It’s very newbie-friendly a­­n­­d I’m so grateful that I found out about this. Check out what I do… http://1b.yt/eFT-s
