Both HTC U Ultra and Samsung Galaxy S8 are excellent phones, there’s no doubt about it. However, there are lots of differences between them, and one of them is the fact that while Samsung invested lots of money in marketing and advertising, HTC released their model without too much fuss. But let’s see how they stake against one another when it comes to their specs!
HTC U Ultra
HTC had many crazy spots throughout the years, and they are risking it again with the HTC. They abandoned the all-metal housing that had become a trademark of their phones and instead went for an all-glass look. The device runs on the Snapdragon 821 processor, and in the US you can only use it on 2 carriers, namely AT&T and T-Mobile.
The HTC U Ultra comes with a 5.7-inches primary display, which is a Super LCD5 that has a Quad HD resolution (2560×1440 pixels). The secondary display is a 1040×160 pixelsone and its function addresses mainly notifications. It runs on the Qualcomm 821 processor, paired with an Adreno 530 GPU. At the same time, it offers 4 GB RAM and a base of 64 GB internal storage, which can be expanded.
Samsung Galaxy S8
The Galaxy S8 model comes together with a 5.8 inches Infinity Display and an 18:5:9 aspect ratio. The display is a Super AMOLED QHD+ one, with a resolution of 2960×1440 pixels, covering 83.6% of the front. It relies on a 10 nm technology for the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and an Adreno 540 GPU. It also has 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage that is also expandable.
The camera is the same on as on the Galaxy S7, a Dual Pixel 12 MP sensor, which is quite surprising. However, the front one evolved from 5 MP to 8.
