The partition that holds all the factory default software for installation is what is updated/ over writen, when you flash your ROM chip. The only old data that is kept is what wasn't cleared from the cache partition. That's why it's good practice to wipe your cache partition just before you do a ROM update to allow a conflict free installation of new files from the ROM software to the OS partition. If you want to go back to a old version of your ROM chip, you would have to download the old ROM software and manually flash your ROM chip with it. And unlike my old SIII phone, old official ROMs for this phone is hard to find for download.
Stay on the 3.4 version until a workaround for Google SD restrictions is available, then you can update your ROM chip. Right now the 4.4 update is no big deal. You can live without it. (Nexus users will say they love it but they have no SD cardslot to get restricted.)

You most likely have conflicts that is causing your lag and camera problem. Only way to fix it now is to wipe the cache partition and factory reset from Android system recovery.
Read my post dated 2014-03-08 18:40 to learn how it's done.

Just got the update today and still din't updated yet, the lag issue due to the HTC apps disable it and restart the phone i think it will turn better than 4.3, camera it should be better now cause Z1 compact camera fixed with 4.4.2 KK update and don't forget Nexus 5 camera fixed with KK 4.4.2, storage not big of deal for me cause i didn't download that much games on my HTC one max perhaps 2 games that's all since i own the IPad mini retina.
The new update Kitkat is not working for me. The phone lags a bit and I can longer take photos the way i used to....something is wrong!

HDR video it's great at night actually it reduce the notice and improve colors a lot plus it does shows the full HD video if it's taken with a DSLR.The good thing about One max camera doesn't has the same issue as HTC one purple x hue on pics at night, but still you switch on the antiashake for the best pics without flash including video.overall it's an great phaplet but still need more improvament(without Samsung gimmicks features) plus more faster chipsets,more pixels other than it's great.

1 normal exposure, 1 under exposed & 1 over exposed. Then it blends all 3 together to get that perfectly exposed shut.
But HDR should only be used for pictures where nothing is moving or you'll get motion blur in your picture. And if you can't keep your had steady for all 3 pictures, that will also cause motion blur when the pictures are blended. (I don't know how is phone does HDR for video.)

For stills life use the focus lock so the camera don't focus on the wrong subject.
To turn focus lock on put your finger on the object you want in focus in your shot and keep it there till you see "AE and AF locked" then take your picture.
For moving objects or when it's difficult to keep your hand still press and hold the shutter button the camera will take 20 rapped pictures. Pick the one that looks the best and then tap "best shot" the rest of pictures will be discarded.

I'm looking for the official copy of the Hong Kong 4.3 ROM to roll back my phone.
The SD card write restrictions in 4.4 is not worth the update.

Btw, i dont know if you already know the trick to turn off the screen of htc one max, i happen to find it useful so i will tell you and for the benefit of all htc one max users. Download the 'screen off' app then activate it. Then try to use the gesture to launch the google now (swiping up your thumb from the home button). It will then ask you which app to launch. Set as default the screen off. Then thats it. You can lock your fone without using the power button. Its cool.

1- ONE max screen way better than Note 3 better sharpness, bigger,beteer colors replication.
2- Battery life it's not bad on Note 3, but on One max it's great with heavy use playing heavy games, watiching YouTube videos stays for 21 hours.
3- Call quality on HTC one max way better due to the higher speaker quality and excellent noise cancellation.
4- dialer and phone book on One max millions times better than laggy and slow Note 3 dialer and ugly phone book.
5- WiFi signal great on HTC one max no drop or disconnect plus the fingerprint scanner works just fine not as techs sites mentioned cause they doesn't know how to use it.
6- camera aren't bad at all as tech sites mentione, but you need Avery steady hands Other wise use the camera timer to take great shoot.
Hope this will help you decide by yourself .
Misstweety, 21 Mar 2014I don't think that I commit a crime it is legal question any way thank you Read posting rules
It's not a crime but how you phrased your question makes rule 7 fall in your garden
Anthony, 17 Mar 2014you should read other post on the page before you ask a question that has already been answered I don't think that I commit a crime it is legal question any way thank you
Found an app that many of you may already know but for those that don’t…. It allows you to load your dialer into the notification bar, so you no longer need it in that lunch bar. And you could use that spot in the lunch bar for some other app you frequently use.
Having you phone dialer in the notifications bar. Means you can go to the dialer at any time, when working in an app, without having to go to the home screen first.
The app is in the play store and it’s called dialer@Bar
