If you drooled at HTC One get ready to get fascinated by HTC’s new flagship, the HTC One Max. The HTC One was one of the best Android phones released this year. The company waited no further and launched the maximum version of HTC One to give the HTC One Max. The phone is powered by a quad-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 chip and 2GB of RAM.
So what did HTC One Max bring to the table? Well the fingerprint sensor. The sensor sits just beneath the camera and requires you to swipe your finger from top to bottom in order to activate it. The Max launches a different app depending on which finger you use. You can assign different fingers for different Apps. This gives you quick access to Facebook, the camera or whatever app you designate. However you need to be careful as there are chances that you might rub off your fingers over the camera sensor too.
The back of HTC One Max comes off to give you access to the SIM slot with the new addition – a microSD memory card slot, something that HTC One lacked. What also differs is that HTC One is a metal phone with some plastic trim, the Max is a plastic phone with metal panels. Since its metal finish at the rear end, its strong enough to avoid any flexing.
The Max also claims better low-light shots. The camera is 4 megapixels, as compared to the minimum 8 megapixels that most high-end phones have. Instead, HTC makes the sensor for individual pixels larger to pick up more light. the night shots don’t come out as dark as they might. HTC One Max too comes with Zoe, a feature that takes up to 20 shots in three seconds so you can choose the one with the right smile or action.
Paired with the BoomSound speakers, the HTC One Max delivers a perfect video-watching experience.
The size of the Max can be big for a few, but it depends on your preferences. It’s a great device if you are looking for a gigantic entertainment system that makes phone calls. You can have a enjoyable experience while you’re playing games, watching movies, or listening to music. It takes awesome photos, will get you through a whole day on a single charge of the battery, and looks very nice. Whats your take on this super productive new HTC One Max??????
