This phone has been slashed from £549 to a crazy £299 in the UK, but would you still recommend it at that price ??

Goodness ten months ago we thought $750 was expensive for a phone and now we’re willing to pay $1,000 plus dollars

Basically... it's a Great phone, but it wasn't really worth the price, but now 1 year after it's release, think it's now 250-300$, absolutely worth it.

Hi, Im not a phone tech so i need guidance. I use my phone mostly to make and receive call. i play games and watch movies often on my phone. Could you please tell me which phone would be the best to purchase that does not cost a arm and a leg to get. I would love it if the memory on the phone was 64gb with a 4gb ram however if it is 32gb with 3gb ram, that will be fine. Please help me.

I bought this phone a few weeks ago for the price of 350 euro's. Now that makes it a different story doesn't it? Ok, the processor is 'old' but still high end. The phone is massive but really good looking and the 2nd screen is really handy. My unit does not suffer from that backlight bleeding so they fixed that or i'm lucky. The 2k screen looks nice and the camera is good with a lot of options. The battery... That sucks if you are a heavy user but will last longer when you decrease the backlight a bit. The headphones are pretty good but the volumes of the built-in speakers not tuned equally so the bottom speaker is louder than the top speaker. Don't know if all the units have that but that annoys me. But for 350 euro's this for sure is one of the best phones out there ATM.

I think the light bleed is a design flaw. My LG V10 and V20 has that same issue.

I've got a question Marques. I live in Greece and right now this phone is available for 325€, close to 390$. What's your opinion about the phone in this price? P.s: I care mostly about fluidity in the os, camera performance and battery life.. P.s vol2: happy new year, stay strong and heathy.

I would like to say thank you to all the reviewers for killing this phone. It's price went so low that I just bought one for 249 euros new on amazon prime. this is just an absurd amount of phone for the price of a moto g5... lol.

Mark Botta (10 days ago)
He's not here to "show off" a device. The purpose of the video is to review and provide a summary. That summary, in this instance, is to not buy this phone. You can heed or ignore the suggestion as you wish.

Guillaume Courcelaud (1 month ago)
Thank you very much for your review, I had a limited budget of 300 euros and the best i could get was Xiaomi mi A1 or samsung galaxy j5 2017. Because of all your reviews, they decided to drop the price from 799 euros to 309 euros, and so I can now have ( almost) a great phone! Sure it is obviously not the best, but for 309 euros it is. THANK YOU SOO MUCH
Ron Taylor (1 month ago)
$749.00 !!! plus $150.00 when you forget your google email login. if you cant remember your google email login whoever steals your phone or finds it has no worries they can use it all they want ( forever ) no problems and from my recent phone call experiences theres nothing that HTC , GOOGLE , or your cell phone carrier can do about it ... google should be illegal.

Shine battle... HTC U Ultra rant vs honor 9
Rayven Hitt (1 month ago)
I think people are too harsh on this phone. The asking Price was crazy, yes... But keyword: was. Now you can find it for €290/$345 - much, much cheaper than an Galaxy S8, LG G6, HTC U11, OnePlus 3/5/T and of course any overpriced iPhone or Google Pixel... Hell, it's cheaper than a HTC 10! Even the "kings of affordable", Huawei and Xiaomi, don't have any Phone that can match this one in the Price/Value ratio. At its current Price Point, the lack of water/splash/dust resistance and smaller battery size is much, much more tolerable. You still get a huge, high-resolution screen, premium design and build quality, fantastic camera... Oh and 4/64GB RAM/Internal combination; for €100 more you can get a LG G6 with 32GB! Further, unlike its rival the LG V20 (again, more expensive) this Phone is will get Android 8 and doesn't have (a relatively high risk of) bootloop issues. So, some 6+ months down the line, this Phone is IMO an excellent purchase. It may not have the modern memes of Dual Cameras and Bezel-less design nor a Octa Core processor (your PC doesn't need 8 cores, why would your phone?), but it is still above any and all midranger (even HTCs own ones!).
Ricardo Martinez (30 days ago)
Rayven Hitt of course its a good deal. No one bought it.
Rayven Hitt (1 month ago)
Well, the Mi Max 2 also doesn't look as good, is much bigger (I don't want a phablet), has worse performance, a worse camera and worse software.
Jay Marvin Maglangit (1 month ago)
Rayven Hitt Mi Max 2 has a bigger battery and a better speaker than this phone. And it cost around $200
