HTC One max vs Sony Xperia Z Ultra vs Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 specs comparison: phablet heat

HTC One max vs Sony Xperia Z Ultra vs Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3
Some people can't ever be seen with a phone larger than the size of a 5-incher, some say once you've tried an even biger screen you can never go back, but how about them ~6" monsters, to which we just added the HTC One max.

The phablet certainly meets its much in the face of the Xperia Z Ultra as you see from the specs below, as with its 6.3" screen diagonal Sony's phone is encroaching on a tablet territory as it is even taller and wider than the One max, which in its turn is one gigantic handset, as you can see when held by smaller hands. Thankfully, the Z Ultra is ultra thin, too, which will remedy the situation a bit, and it even weighs about the same, but adding a waterproof chassis to the mix.

HTC strikes back with aluminum body and a unique fingerprint scanner that lets you unlock the device or launch apps with your fingerprints. On the bottom of the 6" pyramid, albeit not by screen diagonal is the Galaxy Mega 6.3 with its decidedly lower midrange specs for quite the price, and a body that is taller and much wider than the elongated HTC One max with its BoomSound speakers at the front with dedicated amplifiers.
