HTC One Max : Accessories buying guide
HTC delivered a great smartphone with the HTC One, but failed to capture the consumer market once again, leading to yet another disappointing year. Hoping to cash in on the success of the ever-growing “phablet” market, HTC released the HTC One Max late last year, hoping to take on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the Sony Xperia Z Ultra. While slightly behind on the specifications, the HTC One Max features the company’s great design aesthetics, and boasts a beautiful, large 5.9-inch display.
To help you get the most out of your HTC One Max, today, we’ll be taking a look at some of the best accessories for the HTC One Max. Let’s get started!
HTC Double Dip Flip Case and HTC Power Flip Case (with 1,150 mAh battery)
The official HTC cases for the One Max are some of the best available. Combining its premium slim hard-shell with a protective fabric wrap-around, the HTC Double Dip Flip not only offers excellent protection for the front and back of the device, but also folds into a landscape stand, which means that you won’t have to keep holding such a large device while enjoying your music, movies, and games. Buy now on Amazon for $24.99.
The HTC One Max features a large 3,300 mAh battery, but if you’re looking for some extra juice, along with great protection, the new HTC Power Flip case is the best choice for you. The sleek Power Flip Case features a 1,150 mAh battery that provides an extra boost when the case is wrapped around your device. A device battery icon shows up when the full-screen protective case is in use, and a green LED display indicates when both your case and phone are fully charged. Buy now on Amazon for $75.39.
Poetic Invictus Hybrid Case
The Poetic Invictus Hybrid case for the HTC One Max fuses the protection of a hardshell, and the grip of a rubberized covering into one great case. This innovative case with a honeycomb inlay, also features a built-in kickstand for multiple viewing options. Precise cutouts give you access to all ports, buttons, fingerprint scanner, and camera. Since the HTC One Max is such a large stand, the availability of a kickstand is a huge plus. This case is available in two color options, white and black. Buy now on Amazon for $19.95.
