HTC has never been known for supplying its phones with high capacity batteries. But with the HTC One max, not only did it equip the phablet with a 3300mAh cell, it also offers the HTC One max Power Flip Case that is embedded with a 1150mAh battery to extend the battery life on the device. Back in October, HTC revealed what was actually a prototype of the accessory and now, the final design has been announced...

I rather have a MJP and have it protect my phone a lot more than this flimsy cover.

I've had the One Max for a few days now and absolutely love it. It's a bit heavy is the only downside, IMO. I knew that going in it would be, but even the actual dimensions don't really bother me, it's just simply tiring to hold with one hand.

The updates to Sense and BlinkFeed are great. It's pretty speedy but the exclusion of the S800 and 3GB of RAM would have been nice anyways since I do run some things like Sidebar, EQ, and such running in the background that make it lag a bit, but overall it's awesome. And I really want a cover for it but was holding out for the power flip, so they need to release it asap!

Question, what do you think of its camera? I heard its a 4 Ultra-Megapixel and I'm not familiar with it. I heard because it has a bigger aperture, it shoots great pics at dark. What about the zooming? Please, share your opinion. I like it because of its size and speakers on front

HTC sent me a PowerJacket to try out and after for a couple of weeks I’ve found the extra battery life to be amazing. The One max by itself has enough juice for me to last a full work day easily, but with the PowerJacket, 2+ days of heavy use are easily reached. The PowerJacket does add some weight considering you’re carrying a 1150mAh batter in the front flap, but the look and feel of the case is amazing. HTC added a couple of strips on the red part to allow the phone to stand as seen in pictures and the phone is quite sturdy in this position. For day to day use, I prefer the “naked” phone without any case at all, but when I’m going on trips or will be away from a power source for long periods, I’m definitely glad I have the PowerJacket and would recommend it. I always prefer OEM accessories due to the high quality and flawless fit with the phone.
