HTC Drops U Ultra Price to $599 for a Bit ($150 Off)

htc u ultra blue

HTC is hosting a sale on its entire line-up of phones in the US for the next week. You’ll find hefty discounts, though it’ll be up to you to decide if any are big enough to get you to pull the trigger.

The recently released HTC U Ultra has been dropped by $150 to $599, while last year’s HTC 10 is now $499 ($200 off). You can even pick up the HTC Bolt ($450) or One A9 ($199) for a discount. 

Would I buy any of these phones with these discounts? Ummm, no. If I was spending $600 on a phone at the moment, I’d look at almost any other phone in the range, like a G6 or regular Pixel or OnePlus 3T or Galaxy S7 or Huawei Mate 9. If I was going cheaper, well the OnePlus 3T is still an option, as are phones like the Moto Z Play and Moto G5 Plus.

If you are considering the U Ultra, be sure to watch our review.

    I’m anxious to see all the positive aspects of the U Ultra (screen, audio, liquid surface, etc.) carry over to the new U 11 without the negative stuff.

    i just love to see HTC hit the wall and then come in to read the comments, if there are any. These guys are supreme failures, and i love watching them slowly fall apart release after release. I usually cheer for the underdog, but this underdog is retarded and needs to be taken out of the game. There’s no innovation here, just gimmicks and poorly designed failures.

    The One A9 looks pretty good for $200 especially since it includes the UH OH protection for the first year.

  • atc-tech

    LOL! OMG! HTC!

  • shamatuu

    why do that now? should’ve done that from the start. Why even buy theirs anymore? there are better and cheaper phones and even the same price range form other companies that offer more or less features than HTC’s overprice crappy phone.

  • paul_cus

    Pretty good price on the A9, though.

  • seattle tech

    HTC has been using this pattern for all their new phones. Still seems like a failure

  • NooSH

    that’s about $500 too much. i’ll gladly pass.

    Who didnt see this coming?

    lower the price a little more and then we’ll talk.

    It’s funny that even HTC seemed to know this phone was a fail when they launched it by not really pushing it or announcing it whatsoever. Makes me think some exec strong-armed them into launching it despite everyone else in the company knowing it was a bad/unfinished product.

      • T4rd

        Yeah, because how can you launch a “flagship” phone without putting hardly any effort into promoting it whatsoever? I’ve never seen that, so it’s funny.. maybe not “haha” funny, but “odd” funny like “funny business”.

  • BobButtons

    Seems like a poor use of space. -mkbhd


    Its like going to a furniture store and see the living and bedroom sets with a 25% discount signs. To deter you from haggling… When we wall know that evem with 25 percent discount they are still ripping you off

        Managing director of Google!, is explaining to users to start off “Work at home” method, that People have been doing for about one year now. These days alone, I generated close to $36,000 until now with no more than my home computer as well as some spare time, despite that i have a fulltime 9 to 5 job. Even everyone not used to this, can make $89/per h easily and the earnings can go even higher over time… This is how i started

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    NO!… I’m so disappointed in HTC….Ill just pretend they don’t exist this year. It’s just a bad dream.

    • droidbeat

      Yeah you do that. Ignore the U 11. I’m stoked about it.

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        I will. You’ll be one of the few buying… But that’s why we have options.

        • droidbeat

          Yeah I buy what I like without the number of other people buying it weighing into the decision.

  • Still too expensive

    • Suicide_Note

      My sentiments exactly. If they knocked another $100 – $150 off the price, then I’d say it was priced appropriately. I still wouldn’t buy one, however.
