It’s been quite a while since we last reviewed a device that went past the 6 inch diagonal. This time we’re tackling the UHANS Max 2, that goes all the way to 6.44 inches and gets dangerously close to the tablet area. It’s priced at around $154 on TomTop, or $139.99 on GeekBuying, or $134.99 on GearBest.

This massive metallic machine has been unboxed in 4K below. It’s promoted by UHANS as a “giant screen media player” and I’d also fancy it for gaming. Inside the box we find a generous case, that protects the back and front of the phone, wipes, a screen protection, microUSB cable, USB to microUSB dongle, metal pin, charger and manual.

Available in black or gold, this phone has a beefy metallic case and it probably weighs more than 200 grams. It’s got a 6.44 inch Full HD IPS LCD display and runs on a MediaTek MT6750T processor, an octa core unit. There’s 4 GB of RAM on board, 64 GB of storage, a microSD card slot and a 4300 mAh battery. This is a dual SIM handset, with 4G LTE support and a 2.5D glass panel upfront.

Also upfront we’ve got a fingerprint scanner. I know I mentioned in the video that the camera setup is similar to the Huawei Mate 10 Lite, well, it’s similar only in camera number: 4 of them. The resolution is actually different, as we get a 13 MP + 2 MP back camera and 13 MP + 2 MP front camera, while the Mate 10 Lite had a 16 MP + 2 MP back shooter.

UHANS Max 2 runs a pretty clean Android 7.0 Nougat and also clean is the camera UI, with an interesting SLR option, that’s actually wide aperture. This totally feels like a gaming and video watching machine, one that we’ll test over the next days and review in 2018.
