Hi everyone ,
Had this phone for about a week now and I can say , it's truly amazing . The camera is nice with all the useful features , the gallery is the best you can find , responsiveness is quick and speedy ,boom sound speakers killed every smartphone . Coming from the note 3 I can do a short comparison between the two device for people that are considering buying.
One max vs note 3 Speed : I feel the HTC is abit quicker as there is no lag 98% of the time . Note 3 however lags sometimes . Don't know why it uses a snap 800.
One max vs note 3 camera : quality differences varies depend on the environment of the lighting condition . Both have there advantages in different situation , but HTC capture photo quicker , which means most of the time you will not get a blurred photo . As note 3 sometime I get a blurred photo even with steady hand . Which they need to really work on there stabilization .
One max vs note 3 screen : note 3 has live up the expectations of the famous super amoled display. the Color
On the note 3 are truly stunning , the vivid color will definitely draws the attention. One max offer nice Sharp display , but not as vivid as the super amoled .
One max vs note 3 battery : one max killed note 3 in power lasting . Everyday normal usage one max will have 50-55% battery left when I get home after work , which the note 3 Will have about 30-40%. But the note 3 charges a lot quicker compare to one max . There is the up and down .
One max vs note 3 sound quality : let's not compare the speakers (there is no competition, you all know who won in this department). But the sound through headphones . HTC provide louder ,clearer , cleaner bass , as compare to note 3
. I'm really surprised by the results . Can't explain why though . Don't get me wrong note 3 offers a nice quality too ,but just not as clean and loud .
Overall : to my personal exp ,I'm quite disappointed with the note 3 . As this could of be the Samsung's best device , but at the end of the day you're wondering where is all the horse power implemented in the note 3 gone too.faster processors, bigger ram , 13mp camera ... You'll think with that kind of spec will completely slash the one max , but it didn't . Because I'm more happy with my max then my note 3 . So which leads me to believe Samsung is only good on paper specs , but not in real life usage .
Spoke to a mobile repair tech the other day asking the same questions , he told me the best mother board in phones are iphone and HTC . Samsung uses the lower quality boards and ram chips , that's why most of there repair are Samsung devices .
Note 3 does have lots of extra features , s pen , note apps , the best calender widget , slim design , s view , lots of camera features , multitasking window .
But to me thoughs aren't what we use most of the time from minutes to minutes . If they are fluid , then I'm happy to use a lot more of it , but most of the time it lags or the results weren't as expected( Specially the s note widget and camera ).
This is just my personal little review from the exp I had with both phone . Hope it helps the people that are deciding the purchae .

guyx radher going for sony or htc go for lumia 1520..its just fab ....
I want to buy one Max. But also heard that Sony z ultra is bigger and better.
I do not know which I choose. Anyone has idea?
sexy bitch, 21 Dec 2013does HTC ONE MAX come with Optical image stabilization?Doesn't actually need OIS because it's heavier than other phones and the weight alone makes it way more steady.
Disappointing that its just a larger version of the HTC One - bigger and better specs would have made me upgrade.
I look forward to the next model so its an actual upgrade from my HTC One.
Best phone to date . The snapdragon 600 still has it . No lag at all... Same with the One ... Will use this till HTC comes with the ONE MAX+ perhaps
Guys, help me to get this phone in south africa. I love it as I read a lot about it from varies reviewers. its a world class phone I need it, to compete with my iPhone 5s which does everything to me seamlessly.
Anonymous, 29 Dec 2013No, 1 ultrapixel is one larger pixel, so 4 MP cameras, like those on the One, One Max, One min... moreHTC 4 Ultra Pixel can shoot great photos especially when using HDR mode...
When i compared with my old 5 Mega Pixel Galaxy S, 4 Ultra Pixel is much much better...
I really like this phone, i have the power flip case, and sometimes i go a whole weekend without charging it. I wouldn't trade this phone for any other. The sound quality isthe best ever.
