HTC U Play is trying to compete in the price range that already has an undisputable winner and that’s the OnePlus 3 which is even cheaper. However, some brand loyal HTC customers might be happy to see this device in the market. If we overlook the processor part, the other two HTC phones, Desire 825 and One X9 seems to pack specs competitive to phones currently available in the same price range. These are possibly the only phones in the price range that come with stereo speakers with HTC’s own BoomSound technology.
