HTC One Max Review

Written by Mike Roberts. Posted in Gadgets

HTC countered Samsung’s booming Galaxy Note line with the launch of the new One Max. The device has HTC One’s good looks and a 5.9″ display, so its body is pretty heavy. It is possible that the company designed the phone out of race because of this, but it’s been on the market for only one month, so we can’t tell for sure. You can check various mobile reviews sites and make an idea about this phone but here are some general features.

When buying a new gadget you must find a good tech news website which offers concise reviews. A mobile’s hardware can be very hard to understand unless you have some basic hardware knowledge. On http://www.sifrutech.com we found a lot of useful information on this matter and we were able to analyze this mobile’s hardware in comparison with similar products. The new HTC One Max has a premium feel because of its aluminum exterior design. HTC is one of the best brands out there, so they have proven the world that they can make desirable smartphones. The One Max has a massive 5.9″ 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor, a large 3,300mAh battery, a slot for MicroSD cards, Bluetooth 4.0., a 2.1MP wide-angle front-facing camera, BoomSound speakers and NFC. Its performance is remarkable and it is as snappy as the Galaxy S4, although the LG G2 might be better.

The 5.9″ LCD 1080p display is beautiful, offering vide angles and vivid colors. The whites don’t seem discolored and the reds and blues are rich, making viewing photos and videos quite enjoyable. However, having such a big display can be a joy and a torment. Even if editing photos, viewing YouTube videos and playing mobile games is fun, users might have a hard time fitting the One Max in their pockets.

The HTC One Max features a 3,300mAh battery that holds up great. After we played Candy Crush, Assassin’s Creed Pirates and Netflix for hours there was still enough power to perform more tasks. This is surprising, considering the large display. When watching videos over 4G LTE the battery life is a little less impressive, but it is still excellent for a large device.

The HTC One Max features BoomSound speakers, and even without the addition of Beats Audio the sound quality is very good. While previous models were too loud, the Max is perfect, with the right level off bass and treble. If there is one thing we could take from the HTC One and One Max is the incredible BoomSound. Walking around with music playing is a blast, so congratulations HTC! Of course, if you want to listen to music even louder, the HTC One Max connects to any levitating Bluetooth speaker perfectly, so you can take your music listening experience to the next level! You will surely enjoy this phone if you are passionate about music and you want to listen to your favorite songs with no interruptions. Levitating speakers will actually allow you to accept phone calls as well, so you don’t have to disconnect and reconnect the device every time someone calls you!

When it comes to comparing mobile phone cameras most people focus solely on the pixels. However, after some extensive research on we discovered that there is a lot more to a mobile’s camera than just pixels. Furthermore, in order to see if a tech investment is worth its money, you must also compare it with similar products. Technically the One Max features only a 4MP sensor, but the combination of the UltraPixel camera and HTC’s Sense software makes the photo taking experience great. Galaxy Note 3′s and LG G2’s optics are better, but the HTC still captures some decent photos. The shutter button responds quickly, so you don’t have to worry about missing any moments. The focusing software is similar to what we saw on the Nexus 5 with Android 4.4.
Priced at $599.99 off contract, the phone seems to add some extra value along with the XXL display and large battery. Even if HTC missed out some important points, the One Max is a device that you’ll enjoy using.
