HTC U Play

Description

The HTC U Play is a stylish mid-range Android phone made to impress with design and functionality. Its front and back are made of single glass sheets, with a metal frame bringing the exterior together. Another key selling point is the built-in HTC Sense Companion - an AI assistant developed to provide tips, suggestions, and alerts proactively. That is paired with two always-on microphones, allowing the HTC U Play to respond to voice commands. One downside: there's no headphone jack on the U Play. Instead, it employs USB-C earphones that can adapt to the user's ear structure using ultrasonic technology.
