HTC attempted to make an impression in the ever-growing phablet market with the HTC One Max, a smartphone that featured the award-winning design aesthetics of the HTC One around a beautiful, large 5.9-inch display.
Getting a grip around such large devices can be a little difficult, and there is definitely more of a chance of an accidental drop. While there are a lot of great accessories for the HTC One Max, because protection is of paramount importance, today, we’ll be concentrating on one type of accessory in particular – cases. Be it for style, convenience, and of course, protection, here are some of the best cases for the HTC One Max. Let’s get started!
Just added: A best list featuring some of the best HTC One (M8) cases.
Slim Fit Cases
Cruzerlite Bugdroid Circuit
The Cruzerlite Bugdroid Circuit cases are made from shock absorbent and scratch resistant TPU, and adds practically no bulk to the device. A raised bezel around the front of the phone protects the screen while face down.

The Bugdroid Circuit case is available in numerous color options, including clear, black, blue, green, teal, white, orange, red, and purple, to name a few. Buy now on Amazon for $12.90.
Diztronic Matte Back Flexible TPU Case
The Diztronic Flexible cases are made from TPU, a material which is flexible, but stronger and more durable than silicone, allowing for good shock absorption and abrasion resistance. These cases are also very thin, and add negligible weight to the device. The volume rocker and power button are covered, and the case also features a raised wrap-around design around the top of the device, helping to protect the display from face down falls, or if the case is kept face down on a surface.

The Incipio Feather Case features a rigid Plextonium frame that adds protection while remaining slim and inconspicuous, and like the other slim fit options, adds minimal bulk and thickness to the device. The soft touch finish allows for enhanced comfort and grip, and its snap-on design makes the case very easy to install and remove. While stylish, the buttons are uncovered and there are a few open areas at the front and so, this case isn’t as protective as the others, and definitely not for the clumsy.
