The HTC One Max is a gorgeous phone, no doubt, but then it was always going to be with HTC's luxurious metallic bodyshell design being continued on the larger scale. The display contributes tremendously to the overall experience as it's easily one of...

A current trend for smartphone manufacturers is to take their latest high-end model and make it larger, perhaps with extras such as a stylus. With the One Max, HTC seems simply to have made a bigger, more expensive HTC One. The One Max certainly looks...

The One Max is HTC's entry into the ever-growing phablet market; a midpoint between a phone and a tablet. With its 5.9-inch screen and aluminium construction it certainly looks the part, but how does it stack up against its rivals? Agent Hall is here to...

Raw benchmark scores can be misleading since there’s been quite a bit of talk lately about benchmark cheating. The One Max has some stiff competition from another well-liked phablet, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. In some benchmarks, the One Max earns...

This might come off as sexist, but the HTC One Max is not a phone made with women in mind — other than, perhaps, members of the WNBA.While the aptly named Samsung Galaxy Mega with its 6.3-inch screen is slightly taller and wider, the 5.9-inch Max is...

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...

We recently had some good one-on-one time with both the LG G Flex and Samsung Galaxy Note 3, but there are still several other prized phablets in the space that needs to get a proper comparison against the intriguing curve designed smartphone. Next up...

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...

From a consumer standpoint, HTC launched the One Max to counter Samsung's booming Galaxy Note line and enter into the “phablet” market. The only issue is that when entering a market completely controlled by Samsung and its marketing teams, you are...

The HTC One Max is a great phablet if you're a fan of the original HTC One. But the few design flaws and redundant hardware inside make the One Max fall behind other phablets on the market. I wish it had a more advanced processor and slightly thinner...

The HTC One was my favourite mid-sized Android device of 2013. What happens when you super-size that kind of quality?There's no doubting that there's a significant market out there for larger screened phones. Samsung's generally credited for starting the...

If you haven’t noticed it yet, many of today’s “phablets” look eerily similar to their flagship brethren – almost to the teeth in some instances. Despite the similarities in design, these giant sized smartphones tend to get some additional love in the...

It's no secret that HTC is struggling. In the past year alone, the company lost several key players on its executive team and posted a net loss of about $101 million. Based on that criteria alone, the forecast looks grim for the Taiwan-based phone...

The HTC One max is one of the more elegant super-sized smartphones on the market. The design is attractive even if the edges scream polycarbonate rather than polished metal and the aluminum back is as ever attractive. We'd like to see that back cover...
