Meet the newest member of the “phablet” club, HTC One Max. At 5.9-inches, the display on this phone is one of the largest currently available, and it’s Super LCD 3 panel is being called “best in class” and “best on the market” by tech gadget enthusiasts. In general, this phone offers more than just beefy screen size. It also offers abundant performance, storage and utility perks. This phone normally retails for over $600 but you can get it as low as $0.01 from Sprint on Black Friday 2014. Here are a few favorite features:
DISPLAY: Optical lamination with Gorilla Glass 2 covering means stellar angle views and hefty durability. Vivid color reproduction, thanks to 373 pixels per inch, contributes to high definition video and crisp pictures.
AUDIO: The speakers on the One Max are spectacular! Dual amplifier-enhanced, front-facing BoomSound speakers and HTC’s own audio software contribute to clarity and capture the essence of sound in a truly remarkable way.
SOFTWARE: The One Max ships with HTC Sense 5.5 which includes many new tweaks, though it is still running on Android 4.3. A beloved feature is the BlinkFeed home screen, which allows the user to see a stream of updates from a variety of sources. Updates are arranged in a tiled format and the user can choose the source of the feed from specific sources (e.g., social media sites, news organizations) or from broad categories (e.g., business, technology, politics). Sense 5.5 makes navigating BlinkFeed’s categories easier.
CAMERA: Like the HTC One before it, the One Max comes equipped with an Ultrapixel camera featuring 2.0 micrometer pixels. The larger pixels help the One Max’s camera absorb more light than competing sensors. The camera app is one of the best on the market because of such features as the user having immediate access to video and image capture buttons, allowing the user to capture a full resolution image while recording video. The One Max also comes with HTC Zoe, which records a 4 second video clip.
PERFORMANCE: This device is no slow-poke! A 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 processor and 2GB of RAM mean several applications can be open simultaneously while downloading a high-definition 3D game, and speed and performance won’t be sacrificed. Instead of getting a slow laptop, why not take advantage of these offers by Sprint Black Friday 2014 and get the high performance smartphone for yourself?
Other Great Features that make it worthy buying on Black Friday: Trace typing, autocorrect and next-word prediction make the keyboard comfortably functional. The battery life is competitive with other phones on the market. To kill the battery in one day, one would need to stream approximately 9.5 hours of high definition movies over WiFi. A full 48 hours before needing a recharge is not uncommon. The fingerprint scanner sets this device apart from others in the HTC line-up. Located on the back of the device, below the camera lens, the scanner works by allowing the user to unlock the phone or jump to a specific app with a simple finger swipe. Alternately, the fingerprint scanner can take the place of a lock code. Set up of the scanner is a cinch.
Whether you agree or not, Black Friday is still the best day to shop for smartphones. The One Max is a solid performer and an intrepid competitor in the line-up of new-to-market smart phones. Amazing high definition display, a decent camera and a fingerprint scanner for added security are all added benefits to the phone’s respectably large screen size. Get this phone. It’s a winner. You will be a winner too when you grab other Verizon Wireless Black Friday deals for merely a penny!
