HTC One max review - Pocket-lint

 

The HTC One max offers the HTC experience on the big screen, but offers little novelty other than the size. The design looks good, microSD card expansion

Great display, good looks from that One design, BoomSound is still impressive, enhanced user interface from Sense 5.5, microSD card expansion

Nothing specific that uses the size, fingerprint scanner's location makes it difficult not to swipe the camera lens, it just feels too big, back cover fit is perhaps a weakness, loses optical image stabilisation in camera

The phablet category of devices is an odd one. The home of giant phones that haven't quite reached tablet sizes, and the HTC One max finds itself nestled into this awkward pack. For those looking for a big smartphone experience, then that's what the...

HTC One Max review

 

The One gets supersized - but does it impress?

Larger screen ; Longer battery ; MicroSD slot

Older CPU ; Expensive ; Unwieldy ; Pointless fingerprint scanner

The HTC One Max is the phone that the Taiwanese brand created to show that it still is able to make a phone for all occasions.

HTC One Max review

 

The HTC One Max is the brand's largest phone yet featuring a 5.9-inch screen

Brilliant 1080p screen ; Updated BlinkFeed ; Great build quality

Too heavy and too thick ; Fingerprint Scan lacks polish ; Non-removable battery

A huge phone with a great screen, but the camera is poor and performance only middling for the price

HTC One Max

 

The HTC One gets a bigger brother. But is it better too?

Great screen for video and gaming, Solid camera, Decent speakers

Awkward to use, Fingerprint scanner not reliable enough, Not as good-looking as HTC One

HTC One Max review

 

Let's deal with the elephant in the room: the HTC One Max is big. Big, big, big. In moving up to what might be broadly termed the 6in phablet category, HTC has avoided any complicated redesign and taken the rather nice HTC One and made it bigger....

It won't be for everyone, but if you want a big phone (and we mean BIG), you could do a lot worse than the HTC One Max. This is a serious performer that is built to look good and last.

HTC One Max review

 

A bigger, fingerprint reading version of the HTC One should be nerd nirvana. But has HTC got its phablet sums right?

Beautiful screen, once again ; Sense 5.5 and really useful BlinkFeed ; Expandable storage, huge battery

Doesn't quite match build of HTC One ; No stylus ; Heavy and big so could spell pocket trouble

Gorgeous screen, slick Sense and superb battery life but the max doesn’t quite master its phablet maths

HTC One Max

 

The One Max is a fine performer but it could make better use of its bigger screen

Sharp screen ; Great stereo speakers ; Gorgeous UI ; Expandable storage ; camera

Less premium design ; Doesn’t bring the benefits that some do to that large screen

Overall, the HTC One Max doesn’t quite sweep us off our feet in the same way its smaller sibling did.

NB: HTC provided a pre-production unit for this review. It's extremely close to the finished product, but the fact remains that the device we're reviewing is different from the retail version. We would…

Stunning screen ; Incredible audio ; Sense 5.5
