Good: great battery life lasted so far 2 and half days. good hd resolution.The screen is a brilliant size. i like to play games and watch alot off tv/movies/youtube on the go.
Bad: sometimes awkward to plug in usb.
Comment: I think this phone is brilliant and has lived up to what I have read and the reason I bought it.
Good: Wider screen as compared to other HTC One Series phones
Bad: Too big, not an everyday use phone
Comment: Its big HD screen would definitely make me buy the phone but considering the screen size and weight, and comparisons with Note3, this phone wouldnt be a charm for me and I would go for SGS4 instead.
Good: the speed, clarity, tv/movie experience, boomsound, zoe, blinkfeed, screensize, gaming experience, expandable memory (64gb), bigger battery,
Bad: mini usb position, power button position
Comment: As the owner of this device I wanted a phone that has a mix of tablet and phone, that's exactly what you get with the HTC ONE MAX. I'm a heavy user and find myself tethered to my charger on my old device, but with the Max it holds out longer. The movie and tv experience on the LTE phone really lives up to its branding, it's not complicated like the note and gives you a great experience in both gaming and movies.
Good: mahamuud yemeni
Good: Larger screen. Fingerprint scanner, SD card support.
Bad: Same old processor, small battery considering the size, same camera, No OIS,
Comment: The Max is somewhat of a dissapointment. It has a typically small battery (Only 3000 MAH?) considering the largee dimensions of the device they could of fir a 4000 MAH battery in there. Ultrapixel technology is a great advancement in the camera world, but to allow the same replica of it's predecessor as well as removing OIS is ludicrous. There is no reason to buy the Max over the one with the exception of the larger screen. I rate it a 3 because while it is reminiscent of the One, the newer Max has nearly identical specifications as it's 8 month old predecessor.
Good: Impressive build quality
Bad: Same processor as HTC One
Comment: I already own a blue HTC One which itself is an awesome phone, the max would have benefitted from having the snapdragon 800 to give it that extra bit of oomph , also despite having a removable back cover allowing for an SD card it still has an embedded battery which to be honest should have been user changeable as well, other than that it is an awesome phone, shame they never had a proper stylus for it and a variety of colours other than silver, HTC should take note of these things for the next time they build a new phone
Comment: Overall !
Comment: I want my Nexus 7 to be a phone...I cant have that so...I am looking for the best Phablet I can get. If the Note 3 were bigger i would have already gotten it.
Good: Huge Display
Bad: Too big and heavy
Comment: HTC One Max with its Gigantic 5.9 inch FULL HD Display and not-so-ground breaking specs is here! Is this Behemoth for you? Or perhaps is it too big? Check out the full review to know what happens inside only at http://goo.gl/ibDloS
Good: Exciting for images/youtube.
Bad: Shouldn't reduce megapixel density, reflects on phone camera efficiency too.
Comment: Saw a small female (5 feet 3-ish) making a call with a large phone (think the Samsung Note) - it looked very funky & clever of her to see that it would good, not silly. Reviewers make too much of large phones "with a brick to your ear" or something, it doesn't look bad, it looked cute actually. Besides, average height is increasing in Scotland at twice the rate it is in England, so statisticians have said, & a lot of reviews could bear in mind how many 6 feet 5-ish girls & boys there are around, how 'big' are "phablets" to these people? If you want a 6 foot + girlfriend, Scotland's the place to be.
