HTC introduces the U Play smartphone into their mobile inventory. The latest offering from HTC is a value-for-money smartphone that consists of many plus points. Design wise, HTC has taken its cues from U Play’s higher-priced brother, the U Ultra. Hence, the device looks better than most of the smartphones that are marketed in the same price bracket. The U Play sports the same metallic liquid surface form factor that can be found on the U Ultra and the body fits perfectly with the U Play’s 5.2-inch display.

The U Play smartphone is a solid little package that packs many impressive features that you might not initially expect from a smartphone of its calibre. The device is powered by a MediaTek Helio P10 octa-core processor with 3GBs of RAM, which enables you to handle multi-tasking smoothly without any signs of slowing down. The powerful processor means that games, video-streaming, and other multimedia usage can be played on the device without any problems.

When it comes to the camera, the U Play does not disappoint. Although the camera is not able to shoot 4K, it still features an impressive 16MP sensor that makes your photos sharp and clear. Photo quality is further enhanced with addition of the advanced laser focus and optical image stabilization tech. Although the camera cannot be heralded as the best smartphone camera available in the market currently, it still delivers commendable quality and value for the asking price.

In terms of battery life, the U Play is nothing out of the ordinary, matching other smartphones in the market. However, the decent battery life is compensated by the device’s fast-charge capabilities. All in all, the U Play device is a solid value-for-money smartphone that comprises of the necessary features needed in a smartphone, a great choice for individuals looking for an affordable but reliable smartphone.
