The HTC U Play offers a very pleasant design to look and hold, a simple but functional interface, and decent picture and video capture abilities. The U Play ticks all the boxes in its segment, save for a few camera mishaps, so if you are pleased with its premium design, and don't mind paying a bit extra, it's a nice choice in the midrange category.
The HTC U Play is a solid Android smartphone. It has enough grunt under the hood, a decent display, strong cameras and smart bundled earbuds but it's a package which feels like it's missing something.
Overall, the HTC U Play is fine. On the plus side, it looks stylish and takes good photos that look particularly bright on its HD display. However, its performance is on the slower side of average, the battery doesn't last the day, it's slippery as heck and it doesn't have a headphone port.
It looks and feels great, but mid-range insides and a few stand-out problems make the HTC U Play a tough sell at the price... The HTC U Play is a good phone that's let down on three counts. Its camera is often far too laggy, some games don't run that well, and the battery life isn't good enough. Some won't like HTC's decision to kill the headphone jack, either.
Select 'Pay Monthly' if you're looking to get the HTC U Play as part of a monthly contract with minutes, data and texts. Alternatively, choose 'No Contract' if you prefer to buy the HTC U Play SIM Free or on Pay as You Go.
