by Frank Tu 0


HTC One Max and OnePlus One are two of the most featured android mobiles available in the market.After looking at the configuration of these two smartphones, it’s so thrilling to compare these warheads before we purchase any. Both of these were created as a phablet using LCD technology with the Max at 5.9 inches, 373 PPI and OnePlus One at 5.5inches, 401 PPI.
Both of these comes in two different models with different configurations.Each one having a 16GB version with the One bouncing to 64GB storage without any microSD slot and the Max having a 32GB version but it does have a microSD card slot for expansion upto 64GB
The camera technology is quite different with the HTC’s Max having 4MP UltraPixel layout and the OnePlus One uses 13MP for smooth operation. The batteries are similar with the One using a 3100mAh and the Max jumping to a 3300mAh.
Before we pick a winner among these two, we need to compare more features and find out which provides better and reliable performance.


OnePlus One

The new OnePlus One is already attracting people’s attention before its arrival.the One is packing some high-end specs for less than what it would cost to buy Nexus 5 which means it is nothing less than a big gamble. The 5.5-inch FULL HD display is slightly smaller than the 5.9-inch on the Max, but it does make the device more manageable in your hand and certainly thinner and lighter. The Snapdragon 801 quad-core clocked at 2.5GHz simply blows the HTC One Max’s processor out of the water. That processor is coupled with 3GB of RAM which also beats out the 2GB of RAM in the Max. The One does not offer internal memory expansion beyond the 64GB model. The One has a more traditional 13MP main camera from Sony with a six-lens configuration and the 5MP front-facing camera uses a wide-angle lens to capture more area for video chats and excellent group selfies. The One operates the newest Android 4.4 KitKat operating system built-over by CyanogenMod, which claims a near pure Google experience with several enhancements. The pricing is where it really shines – $299 for the 16GB model and only $349 for the 64GB model, and these are off-contract prices.

HTC One Max

The HTC One Max is simply the original HTC One M7, only larger in every direction, including weight – with the addition of a fingerprint scanner on the back of the device, directly under the camera. The screen retains its Full HD 1080p display, but because of its 5.9-inch size, the pixels-per-inch (PPI) drops to 373 – which is still very good. The Max does offer a microSD slot for an additional 64GB of internal storage, if you so desire. HTC insists on using their 4MP UltraPixel technology on their main cameras, and while MP is not everything, the pictures are good, but not great. The battery is slightly larger at 3300mAh versus 3100mAh in the smaller One, but not enough of a difference to mean much in battery life. The Max is running the latest Android 4.4 KitKat upgrade with well-received Sense 5.5 overlay.

Considering the specifications, reliability and price, the winner is:
