HTC One-Max is the perfect description of what a Phablet should be: large enough screen for a wider viewing experience, a top notch camera, and a powerful processor. If you think a Phablet is what you need to get things done, this smartphone should definitely be on top of your list. Know more about it right here!
The world has gotten a glimpse of the HTC One X10 smartphone – the latest addition to the company’s mid-range line of devices – after its recent release in the US market. Despite its affordable mid-range price, the device includes premium features that are typically found in devices that are far more expensive.
HTC introduces the U Play smartphone into their mobile inventory. The latest offering from HTC is a value-for-money smartphone that consists of many plus points. Design wise, HTC has taken its cues from U Play’s higher-priced brother, the U Ultra. Hence, the device looks better than most of the smartphones that are marketed in the same price bracket. The U Play sports the same metallic liquid surface form factor that can be found on the U Ultra and the body fits perfectly with the U Play’s 5.2-inch display.
It is hard for companies to contain unwanted leaks being exposed to the public but HTC has managed to do it. HTC has kept one feature of the U11 a secret until now – its camera features. Although there were several leaks prior to the smartphone’s launch such as a squeezy interface, high-gloss glass back, a USB-C port rather than a headphone jack, the device’s camera features have only been unveiled yesterday.

Rarely do we get a phablet device from a smartphone brand such as the HTC, but when they do it, they definitely do it right. The screen size of this device which is 5.9-inch is precise enough to tell that this phone is nothing like the Note series of Samsung which can be disputed from being a phablet due to the inconsistency of its size since that series started. The HTC One-Max is without a doubt a Phablet by heart, and will surely win the hearts of its users through its bigger and more capable screen.
The 5.9-inch screen of the HTC One-Max is without a doubt meant to be enjoyed with tons of great movies and hardcore games. Not only is it big enough to provide a more comfortable viewing and gaming experience but its overall display quality is top notch: 1080p display (Full HD), 16M-color, Super LCD 3 touchscreen and a pixel density of 373ppi. The screen quality and resolution pretty much makes up for the excessive space for more pixels and could still manage to flaunt a highly detailed and vivid display.
This phone is powered by a Snapdragon Chipset with a Quad-core processor running at 1.7GHz. This processor is highly sufficient to run and open heavy application snappily and will not make the phone overheat easily. Aside from that, the GPU of the HTC One-Max is Adreno 320, one of the most up to date graphics processor in the market today that could render 3D graphics without any glitch. It other words, gaming will not be a problem. Also, its equipped with a 2GB RAM – big enough run multiple heavy applications without slowing down or crashing the phone.
This phone’s primary camera is only packed with 4 Megapixels, however, it’s an UltraPixel 4MP shooter. The phone’s camera sensor boasts an outstanding performance in low lighting condition, making the pictures look as natural as they are in the actual scene. The compromise in the pixels pretty much makes up for the quality of shot, besides, who needs a monstrous pixel if you’re just going to share these pics in social media?
Another notable feature of its camera is the 60fps recording for 1080p videos. The videos will definitely look life as the higher frame rate makes the movement in the video look as natural as in the real life. This Phablet is definitely killing it in the camera department.
