No Canada: HTC One max will not cross the U.S.-Canadian border
Later this week, the U.K. will be the first region to get the phone resembling the HTC One on steroids. Besides the 5.9 inch screen (offered with 1080 x 1920 resolution), the phone has a fingerprint sensor on back, a quad-core 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 CPU, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage. For those concerned with HTC's usual low capacity batteries, a 3300mAh cell powers the phone. With Android 4.3 and Sense 5.5 pre-installed, the HTC One max should reach the states sometime early next month.
Unlike the 1960's, we might actually see a stream of Canadians heading into the U.S. to buy the HTC One max instead of the other way around.

any android is laggy really, I actually used to have an htc glacier and that phone was so laggy, it lasted me until last year's october, when the lag was so irritating that no matter how many master resets I did it would still take a minute to perform a task, then I got the note 2, definitely better, but still lagged, nonetheless very fragile. If lag is the main concern there's no better choice than getting a windows phone, and my friend has an htc one, she hates it with a passion BECAUSE of the lag and how at times it freezes up.

I have a One. And the other day when the One Max was announced I was thinking to myself, "Snapdragon 600 is good enough, I'd totally buy it!" then my phone was lagging so bad yesterday that I had to reboot it to make it stop. It would take around 5 seconds to respond to a screen tap. Problem isn't the processor or the manufacturer, sometimes Manufacturer skins have too much overhead but usually it's a buggy third party app. So no matter what brand of phone you buy if you install that app it'll just bog your phone down.

Not really, I moved from a note 2 to an 808 PureView and that right there wasn't that bad, sure it lagged when browsing and when recently powering it on but then it was fine, then I had a lumia 810 and for the longest (6 months) I experienced not a single second of lag, not one, and even when I still grab it at times it's still a very capable device, right now I'm using a blackberry z10 and no lag here either (other 6 months of use) and have yet to experience lag, so it's not really the manufacturer, but rather the OS that drives the phone.

Rebooting a device daily should be as routine as charging it every night. I do everyday regardless of the device (mobile, PC, etc..) and I never experience lag. Once one gets used to it, it becomes second nature.

I have HTC One and so far i didnt encounter any lags on my daily used.i already consumed 25gb from the 32gb of my storage.and even tried to watch mkv movies and played heavy graphics games like real racing asphalt on my htc one but i didnt encounter any lags as what you have stated on your post..about lags on note 2 i expect that because of thier heavy UI that full of bloatwares..even tech experts praise the htc one for the smoothness..

How funny to watch two idiots talking back and forth about "lag".
Guess what? There are complaints that a Nokia WP lagged as well. So fing what? I've seen the new apple iphone 5S lag in the browser.
Lag is just BS speak for your GUI didn't draw itself so pretty. So fing what? Its eye candy. And WP has to have this obsession with eye candy animations, so much you can't do anything while it does it.

I have no problem with that, as long as I can go back and forth from Facebook, Pandora and working on an excel spreadsheet without any lag I'm fine.

there's no denying that android is generally much more laggy than ios
however having used note2&s4 i can say these both are hell lot lagggggy than iphone5. in last six months i dont remember iphone5 giving me a lag
however personal experience taught me htc one deals with lag problem in a much more efficient way
therefore i expect awesome lag-free feature in one maxxx
since i havnt used i5s i cant make a comment on that, but given the various reports of annoyed customers it is agreed that finally some notable lag has appeared over there mainly due to io7, lets wait and see

I know,ZU is better,but After i bought my 5s,she keeps on saying that she wants a fingerprint sensor on her phablet,The only phablet that i know which has a fingerprint sensor is One Max

you do know that a fingerprint sensor is not a necessity

Canada definitely does not another HTC product with quality control issues. First good move they have made I awhile.
