HTC One Max pictured wearing Verizon's colors
We noted the other day that it feels as though we've been talking about this device for ages. Actually, the HTC One mini came out first via AT&T, but has quickly found itself mired in the quicksand of oblivion from where no smartphone can recover. But unlike the mini, the HTC One Max is going to include a fingerprint sensor, and is going to be one beast of a phone powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. We can also confirm that the HTC One Max will have a removable back.
Check out the pictures of the HTC One Max wearing Verizon's colors below. By the way, the photo was taken inside a Verizon store in the northeast where the phone was demonstrated to employees. The other phone on the table for comparison purposes is the Apple iPhone 5.

I can't wait for this phone, but am torn between this and the note 3. Pro for HTC: Front speakers now just waiting on battery size and camera Pros for Samsung: Samsung made Faster updates

I was torn between the two, but after comparing the two, I have to go with the HTC. The battery will be a 3,300. I prefer the UI, Boom Sound and better build quality of HTC, so I would say you would be happier with the One Max.

You say you were torn comparing the two, have you yourself actually had a live unit to play around with? Think this is the only HTC Phone i've been interested in this year and gotta admit, HTC have improved with their updates this year with the One as opposed to the Sensation and Desire S which never made it past 4.0 and 2.3.5.

I'm torn, too. I love the front stereo speakers in the One Max, but also the S-Pen and slightly Moor compact size of the Note 3 (which seemingly has amazing functionality)
Wish I could combine them.

I would say One Maxx...sense5 is really nice...touchwiz might be more functional but looks very old.

Samsung do not have faster up. HTC was the first to update to 4.3

Faster updates you say? The Note 2 is still on 4.1.2. It's 2 updates behind. The HTC One is about to receive 4.3. And come October 31 Kitkat 4.4 will put every android device back again. If only Google can release the Nexus 5 on all carriers. I'm tired of being one to three steps behind.

Freaking awesome news. I'm killing off our Sprint family plan this month to jump to Verizon. Currently I have a HTC One and I was going to buy a Note 3 to ensure I could do a direct over trade for a One Max IF it ever came to Verizon. Now I might just wait to buy a One Max. I had a Note 2 previously and honestly the Value Ads they throw into their Note line really improves it's usefulness as a Jumbo smartphone, that and the 13.0MP camera is definitely going to be better than the 4.0MP shooter on the One Max. But HTCs Boomsound is really awesome to have and their Zoe feature is awesome to have taking kid pictures being I have three little ones. Grrrr.... The decision is going to be so hard....

A lil too big for my taste. A 5.0-5.3" HTC One would be perfect!

it would be nice if the black part is the whole sceen

It's about freaking time HTC. Been waiting to upgrade to the phablet world. This thing is shaping up to be a beast phone.

Tedkord, I used to think it definitely had a 800 chip set but shockingly in the benchmarks confirm that it has late last year's s4 pro :( I hope its just a lie.

That's probably just for the larger Asian markets like China/Indonesia/India etc where they have dual sim mode. For US/Europe, we're probably looking at an 800 or at the very least, a 600.

Verizon has the worst logo placement ever.

I just peed' in my pants; hope there's a microSd slot!!
P.S. That HTC One Maxx looks like a mighty tablet next to that mini-Phone.

I hope HTC still can survive. In my country, HTC is even dead than Nokia.
Everywhere their shop only occupied with staff.

But am I the only one that is concerned about those fu**ing carrier logos that destroy the "look" of any phone? Really they should stop them to put their 80" logos designed by kids ...

Hard to choose between HTC one max and the Nokia 1520 unless you consider there OS.
26. Trex95 (Posts: 543; Member since: 03 Mar 2013)
Actually HTC one chosen as the best phone of 2013.

Verizon sure knows how to mess up a phone.They have the best coverage but has the most ugly phones out of everyone.Wow take that stupid logo and hide so ugly.

I hope HTC "Twerks!" :D the camera and display resolution on the One Max. I love HTC phones but I'm probably gonna go with the LG G2 if they don't.
