HTC One Max review

 

HTC's One Max is mostly an upsized version of the original One, with a frustrating fingerprint reader tacked on. But if you're looking for a phablet at a reasonable price, it's still a good choice, especially if you like long battery life.

The simplest way to look at HTC’s One Max is as an up-sized HTC One. It has similarly nice aesthetics (with some white plastic thrown in), the same internal specs (with the addition of expandable storage), the same camera, the same screen resolution,...

Review: HTC One Max

 

Achtung, David: Hier kommt Goliat. Nach der sympathischen Miniaturisierung des 2013er-Smartphone-Designs nimmt HTC mit dem One Max die Megaphones à la Note -Serie von Samsung oder auch das Xperia Z Ultra von Sony ins Visier. Es ist ein wahrer Bolide....

HTC One Max vs. Samsung Galaxy Note 3: Heavy hitters

 

The Samsung Galaxy Note may have started the phablet craze, but history won't count for much when the Note 3 faces the HTC One Max. The Max takes the lauded HTC One design and build and trumps the Note 3 in terms of screen size. This fight though is...

The two phablet titans were built by established electronics companies with very different development cultures. Samsung has found its place with the "throw everything at the wall" approach, while HTC is more restrained when it comes to adding new...

HTC One Max review

 

The debate around giant smartphones is over. Manufacturers like Samsung, Sony and LG have amply demonstrated that it's possible to build a pocketable,

Decent battery life ; Great 1080p display ; Fantastic audio quality

Thick, heavy and bulky ; Fingerprint scanner can be tricky ; Camera is low-res and lacks OIS

The One Max isn't much of an upgrade over the One and its features don't warrant the excessive volume or weight. Its screen, speakers and battery life are saving graces, however, and give it some credibility as a media player.

HTC One Max review: Supersized

 

It's phablet o'clock on HTC's watch and they're shifting gear and changing direction. Done expanding the One portfolio towards the compact end of the spectrum, HTC are going the other way with the aptly named One Max. It builds on a proven formula...

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support; 3G with HSPA; LTE ; 5.9" 16M-color 1080p Super LCD3 capacitive touchscreen with 373ppi pixel density ; Android OS v4.3 Jelly Bean with Sense UI 5.5 ; Quad-core 1.7 GHz Krait 300 CPU, 2 GB RAM, Adreno 320 GPU; Qualcomm...

4MP UltraPixel camera has less than stellar performance in good light ; Non user-replaceable battery ; Poor video and audio codec support out of box ; Fingerprint scanner let down by software support ; Snapdragon 600 chipset is no longer the snappiest...

HTC One Max (Sprint)

 

The HTC One Max is a nice extra-large phablet that lends itself to on-the-go media consumption, but otherwise doesn't justify its giant size.

Nice aluminum design. Big, beautiful display. Supports Sprint's faster Spark LTE. Loud front-facing speakers.

Big, bulky, and heavy. Doesn't make good use of screen real estate.

Multimedia and Conclusions The 32GB model comes with 24.58GB of free storage out of the box. For video, the One Max supports MP4, H.264, AVI, and Xvid, but not DivX, at resolutions up to 1080p. The One Max played back all of our audio test formats,...

HTC One Max review

 

With the new One Max, HTC officially enters the burgeoning massive-screened smartphone market. Equipped with an impressive 5.9-inch display that's bright, colorful, and sharp, the HTC One Max will certainly scratch the itch if you're hankering for an...

The HTC One Max has a massive screen that's bright, colorful, and sharp. The camera is packed with features and takes pictures quickly, plus the phone has a powerful set of stereo speakers.

The HTC One Max is large and heavy and the integrated fingertip reader often fails to recognize finger swipes. The phone's battery is not removable either, and the One Max's components don't match its high price.

The HTC One Max has a display big-screened phone shoppers want, but the Samsung Galaxy Note 3's superior design and display make it a better buy.

HTC One max review: a lot more of the same

 

Homer's two great works, The Iliad and The Odyssey, are technically poems. In the exact same way that an inch-thick tome can be a poem, the HTC One max is a phone. It has all the requisite...

Best speakers in the business ; One of the best displays ; Epic battery life ; Side-mounted power button

Far too large and awkward ; Fingerprint scanner is poorly implemented ; Worse fit and finish than the One ; Camera lacks optical image stabilization

The end result is less than the sum of its parts

HTC One Max

 

The HTC One Max is essentially an HTC One (M7) with a much larger 5.9-inch Full HD 1080p display and a rear-mounted Fingerprint Sensor. Otherwise, you're getting the same HTC UltraPixel Camera (with a 4.0MP image sensor, F/2.0 28mm lens with optical...

HTC One max Review - It's Huge

 

Big phones are all the rage right now. Although tablets promised the kind of extra screen real estate that would increase productivity while still retaining portability, there's ultimately nothing more likely to be on your person than a phone. I wager...
