The HTC One Max with new excellence
The HTC One Max is the evolution of the flag terminal of the Taiwanese company toward what is popularly called as “phablet”. This team has a large 5.9-inch panel with resolution Full HD and incorporates several features that make it a first class terminal. The design of the HTC One Max copies the outlines of its little brother a designed computer in silver aluminum with the area of the front speakers in the same material and a thin black frame to accommodate the area of the screen. This predilection for the metal is highly appreciated by many users, who prefer to use plastic.
Personally, I think the metal models possess a certain class, but I generate the feeling of being less flexible and somewhat heavier. Precisely, the HTC One Max falls off of other terminals similar size as the Samgung Galaxy Note 3 with a thickness of 10.2 mm and a weight of 212 grams. This weight has been somewhat annoying when used for longer periods and subtraction terminal comfort when using single hand equipment (for example, when we take it for the time). The Max has a housing that can be removed with a simple mechanism to insert the card into MicroSIM, but can not remove the battery.
On the screen, we really like its 5.9-inch panel because of its brightness and its excellent resolution Full HD of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. The tactile response leaves nothing to be desired and watching movies in this display becomes in a very pleasant experience. To complete the design, HTC provides a cover with a built-in battery of 1,200 milliamps, which makes the phone while on a road, ends up increasing the thickness and weight figures that the end can generate the feeling of being in a “brick”.
The HTC takes a few months trying to push through a new concept they call “ultrapíxeles”. These are pixels that instead of having a point of color in this space are three. Thus, images are obtained with a level of detail greater. To reduce this explanation to something more practical, the rear chamber of 4 ultrapixeles HTC One Max could in principle be compared to a 12 Megapixel camera from another terminal. In addition, this type of camera is very interesting when working with images that are not going to be used to print posters or large photos.
The HTC One Max is available in both 16 GB and 32 GB. In both cases, we can also include a card MicroSIM up to 64 GB to get a really big storage capacity. As if this were not enough, HTC offers 50 GB of free cloud storage for two years by buying this phone. This makes the Max into a media center in which to save our movies, videos, photos and music. In terms of power, has joined a processor Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core 600 with an output of 1.7 GHz, and a memory of 2 GB RAM. This is a very powerful team which runs very fluently both menus Android apps and games as present at the official store of Google. Yes, the One Max is at this point a step below its rival Samsung Galaxy Note 3, which integrates a memory RAM excellent 3 GB.
The HTC One Max has come to market with version number Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, the penultimate of the available versions of the system of Google. It is possible that in a few months any update of this system to Android 4.4 KitKat, although it is still a point that is confirmed. This ecosystem provides more than one million different apps through its official store (there are also many shops that are not official) and has achieved a remarkable level of maturity. But it really differentiates Max One of its rivals is in the experience HTC through its own interface. The software layer HTC Sense is one of the most complete currently provided by manufacturers, so choosing one device brand also depends on how little or much as we love this interface.
The application most obvious from the outset is HTC BlinkFeed. It is a home screen showing bricks as the latest news and updates from our contacts on sites like Facebook. The concept of this application is very reminiscent of the app contacts in Windows 8. On the other hand, we really like the app TV. Through it, you can control your TV or TV services payment such as Canal +. This app is very simple and intuitive, but what stands out above all is its ability to function as a small Smart TV on mobile. Not only we can see the programming of TV channels, but we also recommend those most interesting content or make reminders of our series and favorite programs. Finally, it is interesting the app “My notes” from HTC, fun tool to generate various notes and greeting cards.
