HTC One Max features and software
HTC One Max brings with it all the software that we could appreciate with HTC One (see video above ) from BlinkFeed that allows you to have an eye on all the summary of their social network on Facebook, Twitter , Linkedin, etc. . . as well as the news of blogs and news sites or specialist preferred. HTC Zoe allows you to create a sort of photo -video- diary really very charming and attractive. The camera - camcorder uses special functions such as the one that allows you to get photos with all the people smiling and posing so perfect as to remove any distracting elements like loops ; very particular also the possibility of creating a video with speed reproduction variables. And the fingerprint reader ? In our opinion, does not make much sense because for unlocking secure phone - for charity - does its job well , but the rest seems more installed because " there had to be " rather than because they " really needed ."
