Start of a New Trend

Finger print sensors are clearly starting to be common with flagship smartphones. After iPhone 5S and its TouchID, HTC One Max comes with a finger print sensor at its back that will also finction like the one on iPhone 5S allowing you to lock and unlock the phone.

However, HTC One Max has a way larger display at 5.9 inches! That’s too big for me. How about you?

Here’s how HTC One Max looks like:

HTC One Max Key Features

Aside from unlocking HTC One Max, its finger print sensor also lets you launch apps directly by using a different finger for each of up to three apps. Most will assign the camera to one of these.

HTC One Max will also feature the latest HTC Sense version 5.5 that many people like. That includes a more personalised BlinkFeed.

One thing that’s puzzling with HTC One Max is its removable metallic back cover BUT non-removable battery. What’s the use of being able to pry off the cover if you can’t replace its battery?

Well, HTC says the design of the inner components of HTC One Max makes it impossible to make the battery removable. The back cover can be removed, however, to allow users to insert a micro SD card for additional storage.

Lastly, Beats Audio has been removed but HTC One Max has a louder BoomSound speaker.
