Buy HTC U Ultra on eBay

Looking for a good phone on a budget? If that's the case, you're in luck, as the price of the HTC U Ultra just hit a new low on eBay. You can currently buy the device in Sapphine Blue for $189.99 on the e-commerce site. The cheapest Amazon listing we were able to locate quotes $284.99 for the 2017 handset, so you'll be saving more than 33% or $95 with this deal.

The units sold by the eBay reseller are new and unlocked. They are compatible with GSM carriers like T-Mobile and AT&T, but won't have LTE if you choose to get a SIM card from CDMA carriers like Sprint or Verizon. This is an authorized reseller, so eBay also has a 30-Day money back guarantee if you're not satisfied with your purchase.

One of the most notable features of the HTC U Ultra is the 5.7-inch LCD display with a 1440 x 2560 (QHD) resolution. There is a secondary display on top showing shortcuts, notifications and more. Powering the device is a Snapdragon 821 chipset featuring a quad-core 2.15GHz CPU, and the Adreno 530 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 64GB of native storage. The main 12MP main camera has a f/1.8 aperture and optical stabilization, while there's a 16MP selfie shooter at the front. Keeping the lights on is a 3,000mAh battery, and after installing a few updates, you'll get the device to run Android Oreo. Not too bad for a sub-$200 phone, eh?

If this deal interests you, feel free to follow the above link to eBay. For a more detailed look at the U Ultra, make sure to check out our written review.

The original phone that started "poor use of space". From $750 last year to less than $200 is quite the drop

The U Ultra is NOT a good phone...the u11 is a much better buy.

The U11 is going for $649 on Amazon right now. I would hope that for 3x the price, it would be a much better phone.

I wasn’t aware. The U Ultra’s been seen as a disappointment by many reviewers…

All I can think of even for this price is "Poor use of space"

Poor use of space in my nightstand

QHD display for $200 ? I would take this one just for multimedia / some light reading / spare phone. At that price, poor use of space does not really matter. But as a primary phone, yeah, users be wary.
