Should I buy the HTC Ultra?

Episode 1383

Ryan from Anaheim, CA
HTC Ultra

Ryan has an iPhone 7 and he's thinking of getting an HTC Ultra. Worth it? Leo says that he doesn't think so. HTC made great phones for years with great speakers and long battery life. But lately, they've been courting the low cost Asian market with tinny speakers and awful battery life.

If Ryan wants a good Android phone, the new Samsung Galaxy S8 or LG G6 is worth getting because of it's bezel-less design. He'll get a larger screen without having to carry a larger phone.

Samsung Galaxy S8

Leo got the Samsung Galaxy S8 this week and it has a 6.2" screen, but it's a bit weird because of its aspect ratio. Like the iPhone 5 which had a tall, narrow screen, the S8 is doing the same thing to make it tall and larger without being wider. The edge is more aesthetic and has less usable area as before. It is "bezel-less" now, so the image goes edge to edge making it look larger without being wider. It's not the same camera as the S7 – it's extremely nice with an upgraded sensor.
