Latest snaps of HTC One Max reconfirm fingerprint scanner

One of the most eagerly awaited phones, hopefully coming before the end of the year, is the unannounced HTC One Max; looking like an HTC One on a growth spurt, the latest pictures allegedly of the device show off once again, a rear-facing fingerprint scanner. Besides seeing the rear-facing scanner more than once, settings for the feature appeared on a screenshot of the unit...

I can't function without a replaceable battery. I'll have to pass on such a good phone otherwise.

Ok enough with the stupid trendy finger print scanning nonsense already! I have enough with the god dang NSA listening and reading my e-mails, now they want my fingerprints too? What's next the keys to my apartment/house, car, wife, children.... Enough with this stupid trend!

I will at least look and consider this phone. I am very UNDERWHELMED with Note 3 and may skip it or jump to something else. The tradition of the Note 3 was the "biggest", and we were first expecting 6.3", then 5.9", now got an imperceptible .13” increase to LESS than 5.7”, (only 5.68” and the note 2 was 5.55” so it is NOT even a .2" increase). The screen does not appear any (outdoor-sunshine) brighter than Note 2 and HAS BEEN SURPASSED by brighter screens. We were sorta hoping for "unbreakable" (flexible) glass, but we may not have gotten anything stronger. HTC has set the bar with FRONT FACING - BEATS QUALITY speakers. I am not convinced that "bottom" speakers are a significant improvement. It does not appear we got a dedicated camera exposure-release BUTTON, instant-activation of camera, ZERO SHUTTER LAG, or (OPTICAL) Image Stabilization. And Nokia (Microsoft) proves that Xenon flash is possible, (and of course higher-megapixels). We had been primed for an IR-transmitter and possibly fingerprint security. OK, so we got some new S-pen apps, and more RAM, but I was truly expecting more to match (beat) the competition and am disappointed. I personally am intrigued by the new ASUS announcements of 6" and 7" w/ FRONT FACING SPEAKERS. (wonder how bright the screen is and if Verizon will carry it ???) And I want an FM RADIO …. (some specs say it has it, and some don't)

PLEASE stop implementing fingerprint scanners! NSA already has to much information about us!! I will never buy a smartphone that uses fingerprint scanners (and no, I'm not a criminal...)

Can't wait for the Max to finally be release, being waiting for this king of phablets for months now.
