HTC One Max now getting its Android Lollipop update in some regions
Released back in October 2013, the One Max isn't among HTC's most popular handsets of recent years, but some people certainly still use it. If you're one of them, you'll probably be happy to find out that HTC is now pushing an official Android 5.0 Lollipop update (with Sense 6.0 UI) to the One Max.

According to multiple users, the Lollipop update is now rolling out (over the air) in select European and Asian markets, including France, Italy, Poland, Czech Republic, and Taiwan. We assume that the update will also be available to One Max users in the US, where the device was sold by Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint. However, since we're talking about carrier-branded versions of the handset, it might take a while before the update is ready.

The One Max is HTC's largest Android smartphone to date, thanks to the fact that it sports a 5.9-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels. It's also HTC's first smartphone to have a fingerprint scanner (situated on the back, just below the 4 MP UltraPixel camera). That aside, the One Max features a quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable storage space, and a 3300 mAh battery.

Why can't HTC make a decent looking phone without being fire in the pocket like this one anymore?

I kinda miss the old HTC, I used to own their EVO 3D.

My co-worker and I were talking about our old cellphones and the HTC One V was my first touchscreen phone. It was a great device; fast, small, easy to use, camera was good.

I would definitely get another one of those, but alas the days of basic smartphones are dying...

Still for example iphone 6 has bigger bezels than One M9 which is similar compared to the Max. Boomsound is awesome and I hope they do not make bezels any smaller if it means audio quality loss.

The HTC EVO 4G was one of the best old school android devices ever made. I remember wanting that phone so freaking badly.

I had the Evo 3D and that phone had overheating issues... So I stuck with the Evo

I still think this is the best HTC device ever made.... Not saying that's better than the current line up, I just think it got a lot right... for me anyways, like the neutral screen calibration, the size, the heft, the battery life (which was a monster!) And I can not forget Boomsound!!!!

I wonder what kind of innovative features HTC has up their crike!!! They got to have something! The premium design just doesn't cut it anymore since every OEM and their momma is going premium.... I wonder...
