HTC was one of the first manufacturers to jump on the Android bandwagon. While its initial phones like HTC Dream and HTC Magic did meet with some success, it failed to maintain that success. Moreover ever since Samsung started in Android space, HTC not only lost its top position, but also started to make losses. The year 2013 has been the same for the company, however, its flagship device One has got rave responses even when pitted against the Galaxy S4. HTC hopes to emulate this response with not only its One Mini version, but also with the just announced One Max.
As obvious from the name, the device is larger version of One, which comes from the bigger screen against 4.7 inches in the One. It has the same solid construction due to aluminum body with BoomSound speakers at the front. It also shares the same internals as of HTC One. However, not everything is the same especially when we consider the fingerprint sensor at its back. It also features latest version of Android 4.3 with HTC’s customization Sense with the version 5.5. The new interface brings useful updates to the BlinkFeed, Zoe and Video Highlights feature first showcased in Sense 5.
There is also an optional accessory which not only acts as a cover but also adds additional battery of 1200 mAh.
