HTC One Max specs confirmed by retail posting
0. phoneArena 12 Oct 2013, 16:12 posted on
Just the other day, we showed you what was purportedly a full specs sheet for the HTC One Max; now, a retail posting for the device confirms the specs on the device. In case you've been doing the ol' Rip Van Winkle, or you just recently became a smartphone fanatic (in which case, welcome aboard), the HTC One Max is the phablet-sized version of the Taiwan manufacturer's HTC One Android flagship phone...
This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

16GB, Snapdragon 600 fail. No Magic Stylus, this is a mid-range "Over Sized Phone".

It has a snapdragon 800. I don't think 16gb is sounds right considering the one has 32gb but I'm not phablet fan at all the Note 3 is a beast.specs wise but other than that Its a plastic square that is a step back for Sammy as far design and build quality is concerned.

Note 3 = Nokia 3310 in build quality. Check the drop test from Friday. ;)

Note 3 and HTC One Max are beautifull phones in terms of design but I don't think HTC will succed because of the Ultra Pixel camera and no stylus.
59. MistB (Posts: 581; Member since: 07 Jul 2012)
Nope, Note 3 > One Max. 1520> One max Oppo N1>One Max. Xperia Z Ultra >One Max

Y'know I really love my One. So far the processor has never bogged down on me, and as long as the 16 GB comes with a micro sd card slot I'm fine with these specs. All I want from my HTC One is a larger screen; I think the One Max fits the bill. This is going to be my next phone even if Verizon charges $299 on contract. Namely the things that make me want this over the Note 3 is the front facing speakers, slightly larger screen, the double tap home button recent apps trigger, and the HTC Zoe feature.

Yes, the One is a great phone and putting all that into the Max will make it the beast phablet. Can't wait for it to get announced this week!

no stylus is a big fail.but snapdragon 600 is enough to run any intensive games smoothly
79. Larry_ThaGr81 (Posts: 308; Member since: 26 May 2011)
Not at all, I rarely ever use my stylus for my Note 2.
82. Larry_ThaGr81 (Posts: 308; Member since: 26 May 2011)
What truly makes this phone a fail is the 16GB and ultra megapixel camera it comes with, aside from that, the snapdragon processor is still a beast by today standards.
3. PapaSmurf (Posts: 9727; Member since: 14 May 2012)
HTC, don't be surprised when many don't buy this phone. Mistakes after mistakes smh.
4. bubbadoes (Posts: 567; Member since: 03 May 2012)
It's a bigger version of the One..no wonder Htc is in trouble.
5. bubbadoes (Posts: 567; Member since: 03 May 2012)
What a waste at the production line to even manufacture this.
6. TomTheNerd (Posts: 67; Member since: 11 Oct 2013)
i think the reason you won't see typical phablet specs (stylus input, etc) and that you won't see many different specs to the htc one, is because this literally a bigger-sized htc one, hence the name.
a really great device though. also, to anyone else, if you simply compare phones by pure specs then ofc you're not going to like this phone or the htc one.
7. Dr.Phil (Posts: 984; Member since: 14 Feb 2011)
if this is true, I think I may be going with the Lumia 1520 for my next phablet device.
26. papss (unregistered)
Really? I'm actually surprised by that but love that others are taking the 1520 serious like myself.. +1 to you sir!
28. Dr.Phil (Posts: 984; Member since: 14 Feb 2011)
It's also dependent on how great the GDR3 update is for Windows Phone 8, but I'm starting to think I am going to get the Lumia 1520 as my phablet device and then the Nexus 5 as my regular Android device.
31. PapaSmurf (Posts: 9727; Member since: 14 May 2012)
Note 3. You won't regret it. It was great while I had it. I miss it already. :(
33. papss (unregistered)
Huh? What happened to yours?
47. Dr.Phil (Posts: 984; Member since: 14 Feb 2011)
I go back and forth as to whether I really like the Note 3 or not. I owned the original Galaxy Note and enjoyed it, but I don't really like the UI. It just seems a little too clunky for my taste. I am going to try it out in person, though, to be sure. It also just seems like it's the 5S version of the Galaxy Note II where it's more so just a minor upgrade, but again I'll hold off final judgment until I actually get one on one time with the device.
49. PapaSmurf (Posts: 9727; Member since: 14 May 2012)
Note 3 is not a minor upgrade from it's predecessor... It's worthy of an actual number instead of a numeric one.
46. ihatesmartphone (unregistered)
I will buy Note 3 for sure!
8. XperiaFanZone (Posts: 1597; Member since: 21 Sep 2012)
This might be cheap with such processor.
9. Kishin (Posts: 695; Member since: 30 May 2013)
This better be cheap because its just an oversized One.
Unless they come up with Ultra features like samsung always does
11. darkkjedii (Posts: 14765; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
Ouch HTC, another dropping of the ball. Snap 800, 32 gigs, 4,000 mAh would've been better. This just shows how spoiled we are now, this phone will do everything we need/want it to do. Spoil us though HTC
19. Muayyad (Posts: 190; Member since: 05 Oct 2012)
I see such comments all the time. What ever the X company gives more other than samsung, is never enough.
23. Muayyad (Posts: 190; Member since: 05 Oct 2012)
The battery is larger than Note III, still not satisfied...
32. PapaSmurf (Posts: 9727; Member since: 14 May 2012)
Note 3's battery is on par with the Maxx lol.
12. Taters (Posts: 4377; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
Now that I think about it, they probably couldn't even use the S800 if they wanted too. LG didn't use the S800 in the pad 8.3 because it overheated. And the pad 8.3 was actually well designed. Imagine how hot it would run on the One Max with their didn't think things through pyramid design that takes 5 minutes to lock a gps signal.
If the Max had an S800 it would have been the ultimate heat sink! Great design again HTC. Haha
18. ngo2dd (Posts: 896; Member since: 08 Jul 2011)
You are an idiot HTC signal has alway better better then your belove Samsung. HTC has a much heat issue as the the S4 now stop troll or get a life either or.
40. Taters (Posts: 4377; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
Lol Idiot HTC fanboy can't accept the truth eh?
50. Muayyad (Posts: 190; Member since: 05 Oct 2012)
It takes htc one and the one x seconds to lock on GPS. Your point is invalid. sorry
65. Taters (Posts: 4377; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
Lol Seems like HTC fans are resorting to flat out lying now. It takes the HTC One much much longer to get a GPS signal than seconds. More line a minute or longer.
In fact, every review says the HTC One takes forever to lock a GPS signal.
The One X I don't remember how long that took but that had other problems that made it garbage.
My points are 100% valid and it seems like the HTC fan boys can't accept that.
58. Jack58221 (Posts: 143; Member since: 23 Feb 2013)
my wife and I went from having an htc evo and an lg viper to getting used galaxy s3 and an s4, both locked to Sprint still. by "upgrading" we lost almost all Sprint signal and were doing enough roaming Sprint is " letting us out" with no termination fees only 8 months into a 2 year contract. Great upgrade to a pair of Samsung phones.
60. MistB (Posts: 581; Member since: 07 Jul 2012)
Seems your problem is with the carrier as opposed to the phone then.
74. sarge77 (Posts: 202; Member since: 14 Mar 2013)
its not the carrier hes claiming everthing about samsung quality how bad the signal is you can have it all but one you get horrible signal thats a wrap.
yes htc has great signal so does motorola well this really confirms is because my buddy went from gs4 only has good signal where he lives but lost alot of signal at work, which my photon still has it. thx htc will still look for your phone.
61. ngo2dd (Posts: 896; Member since: 08 Jul 2011)
What truth ask any on sprint or Verizon how great Samsung signal are. I am not the one post here every day and only post anti HTC stuff. Get a life dude, or a GF.
64. papss (unregistered)
My note 3 gets amazing signal man. Not sure I agree with you there.
14. noles22 (Posts: 11; Member since: 09 Nov 2011)
What's so wrong with the one, after having Iphones and the S4 I think it's a great device. Why is everyone hung up about nanoseconds on a processor they'll never notice, just to have the latest thing which will be irrelevant by the time they get it.
15. amats69 (Posts: 1225; Member since: 12 Nov 2012)
Ill save my money for the next flagship then....this is not an upgrade of my htc one..sorry htc...ill pass....but still im looking forward for the official unveiling.
17. isprobi (Posts: 352; Member since: 30 May 2011)
I am not clear if there is SD card slot or not?. If not then no sale.
37. oister85 (Posts: 432; Member since: 27 Apr 2012)
Same for me if is 16gb with micro sd card is a lost.
80. Larry_ThaGr81 (Posts: 308; Member since: 26 May 2011)
This is so true for me for me as well, but I stop buying their products after owning the Thunderbolt and Rezound with those really small capacity batteries. The icing on the cake for not ever returning to their product line was the unibody design and lack of an sd card expansion slot.
81. Larry_ThaGr81 (Posts: 308; Member since: 26 May 2011)
I'm glad to see them finally put a 3000+mAh battery in one of their products, so hopefully that specific area of this product won't be a fail.
20. ngo2dd (Posts: 896; Member since: 08 Jul 2011)
I don't know why people still think that the Asian market has the same spec as the American market. The HTC one in China has a removable back, support SD and has dual SIM.
22. ChafedBanana (Posts: 364; Member since: 20 Sep 2011)
I'll pass on THIS pile. If you want a new phone with the last generation's tech then you should get this phone. It could have been good but this is just a disappointment.
25. kg4icg (Posts: 70; Member since: 18 May 2008)
I guess you people forgot the back comes off for the SIM slot and micro SD slots.
27. papss (unregistered)
I'm pretty perplexed by the decision to only use the s600... While not bad it should have been the s800. This also explains why such a large battery as the s600 isn't nearly as battery efficient as the 800
29. phones522 (Posts: 94; Member since: 27 Jan 2010)
Why does everyone hate this phone so much? Whats wrong with it having the same processor as the One? The One isn't slow or a bad phone so whats the big deal?
30. taikucing (unregistered)
Because it's not plastic like samsung galaxy Note 3. And they want a 50 GHz snapdragon 90000 because they want to run a supercomputer app in the phone.
