With a few companies; mainly Samsung, Sony and LG; already showing some success in the “phablet” market HTC decided it was time for them to join the family. For their first attempt at the “phablet” they super-sized their HTC's One smartphone. The results is the HTC's One Max with a 5.9-inch screen.
Beside its large screen the One Max also boast a full HD 1080x1920 resolution with 367 ppi, a Qualcomm Snapdragon quadcore running at 1.7 GHz, it runs there new Sense 5.5 user interface on top of the latest android 4.3 operating system, 2 GB RAM and 32 GB storage.
The one area the HTC's One Max falls short ofr the competition is the rear-facing camera at a mere 4 MP (mega pixels) compared to the 13 MP on both Samsung's Galaxy Note 3 and LG's G2. The HTC One Max does catch LG's G2 with its 1080 HD but still falls slightly of Samsung's Galaxy Note 3 with its 3840x2160 (4K) (30 fps).
One feature that might just put HTC's One Max ahead of the pace is its taking a page from Apple and including a fingerprint scanner. The addition of the biometric security could be a big selling point for the One Max. Of course just as with Apple's iPhone 5S, the One Max could see its share of hackers targeting it to try and bypass the ID system.
