HTC U Play (64GB Dual SIM 4G LTE) is an elegant high-spec Android phablet from the Taiwanese manufacturer. Its unique name has a whole philosophy behind it. It is about you, the user, hence the name U. The phone features sublime ergonomics with a sleek and beautifully crafted Display that comes with Liquid Surface. The Super LCD screen is 5.2-inch in size and features Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) resolution with an outstanding pixel density of 428ppi. This ensures perfect clarity for games, movies, general display and photos/videos. The Display is covered with curved edge Corning Gorilla Glass, the best in class protection.

The device comes with the Android OS, v6.0 (Marshmallow) along with the latest HTC Sense User Interface. It introduces HTC Sense Companion for the first time which is your digital assistant and learns your preferences over time. Based on those preferences it then suggests activities, tasks and actions. It can also advise you to leave office early in case of a weather storm or unexpected snowfall or remind you to keep your power bank handy in case you are going for a trip. It can even make restaurant picks for your weekend. The Sense UI also features voice recognition so you can control functions such as calls, messages, alarms etc with a few simple commands. The voice recognition works in sleep mode as well.

One of the coolest features of HTC U Play is its camera. It builds on the camera capabilities provided on previous HTC models. The image sensor sported is 16-Megapixel Ultra Pixel 1 which features all-new Phase Detection Auto Focus for exceptionally blur free and blazing fast photography. This BSI sensor provides built-in Optical Image Stabilization, f2.0 aperture, face detection, Auto HDR, panorama, Zoe capture, hyperlapse, dual tone LED flash, 720p HD slow motion recording and 1080p movie recording.

An exceptionally powerful 16-Megapixel HTC UltraPixel front camera is available for some great selfie shots and video streaming/recording as well. It offers a BSI sensor with live makeup functions, auto/voice selfie, smile capture, self timer, Auto HDR, selfie panorama and Full HD 1080p recording.
