It's another nail in the coffin for the Galaxy Note 7 phone. Samsung is releasing an update to its South Korean users later this month that will stop Galaxy Note 7s from being able to charge. The move is the latest of Samsung's many attempts to get people to ditch their devices.

Visit manufacturer site for details. The HTC U Ultra would have been a good phone in 2014. Here in 2017, its crisp 5.7-inch display, high quality speakers and fluid glass design are overshadowed by the curious decision to omit key flagship features. The phone lacks both wireless charging and water resistance. Like the iPhone 7, it lacks a headphone jack. The flagship features it does flaunt -- a secondary display and smart AI assistant -- ultimately fall short and don't justify its extortionate price. This would be a different review if the U Ultra cost $400, but instead it's priced at the top end of the market, at $750, £649 or AU$1,199. That's a lot to pay for a phone that sacrifices so much.
HTC may get another chance if it releases the rumored HTC 11, but as an interim phone, the U Ultra just doesn't do the job, Android fans should hold out to see what's around the bend with the HTC 11, Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6, or look to the Google Pixel XL ngp case for apple iphone 7 plus - cyan/translucent or OnePlus 3T for large-screen goodness that hits the mark, The U Ultra doesn't feel as premium as the all-metal HTC 10 (£319 at Amazon.co.uk), but the reflective glass body makes it one of the prettiest phones I've seen in a long time, I'm especially fond of the blue model I used for this review..
But there's a new trend in the mobile market. We're now seeing phones with larger displays in smaller bodies, such as the LG G6 and, it's rumored, the Galaxy S8. The U Ultra's front fingerprint sensor, secondary display (more on that later) and large bezel make it bigger than just about every other phone on the market. It's truly massive and difficult to hold and operate with one hand. HTC made the decision to give the U Ultra no headphone jack, like the iPhone 7. The company claimed omitting it gave it more flexibility in the design, but the U Ultra's design isn't anything revolutionary. It's also a letdown that the U Ultra isn't water-resistant. It's 2017, and a flagship phone that isn't water-resistant (especially one this expensive) simply isn't worth it.
