Anonymous, 04 Aug 2013This thing is just too big for a phone. A 5" would have been much preferable with the rum... moreHTC already had Butterfly S in the 5 inch segment...
Its a phablet so 5.9 inch is good.
AnonD-11793, 04 Aug 2013Zu is much better then max and note 3 in all aspects. Design, performance Oh and you must be god that knows performance of phones that are not in the market

samsung galaxy S4 mini>>>>>>htc one mini
samsung galaxy S4 zoom>>>>>>hyc one zoom(coming soon!!!)
samsung galaxy S4 MAX>>>>>>>htc one MAX
Zu is much better then max and note 3 in all aspects. Design, performance
Really, expandable storage? Believe it when i see it. If its true then this could be the competitor Note 3 need to keep the market healthy, since Z Ultra failed so badly i mean, the HTC may be only 4mp but it has a OIS and a flash. Sample photos i seen from Z Ultra failed to impress, and the lack of flash is too hard to swallow.
However i am not sure that 10% bigger battery is enough for HTC to beat the battery time of the Z Ultra, Sony has showed some impressive skills with battery tuning lately (Xperia Z has turned from OK to Greatest with the last two updates) and Triluminous should be more energy efficient thanks to the pure blue led backlight. In addition we know HTC have poor standby times.
My guess is:
Battery - Note3 > ZUltra > Max
Camera - Note3 > Max > > > > > > ZUltra
Yes Z Ultra is that far behind on cam, i seen some sample photos that was far from impressive, it must be using an exceptionally small sensor, colors were smeared like a kid who stole moms lipstick, plus a bit above moderate noise, and add to that a total inability to take pics in dark places. The only worse i seen from a 8mp flagship was the Butterfly (another famous entry in HTCs long line of bad camphones)
Note3 > Max > > > ZUltra
Great specifications but... Screen size is just go increasing with each new model comes to market....
Why not even single brand try to launch a one model with flagship processor with 4.5 inch screen....
If HTC just takes care of its pricing then the phone will be a major hit..
4 MP UltraPixel camera? Well, a 4 MP module costs just $50. It's a deal break. HTC, time up, pack up.
in September you want to get either the xperia honami or xperia z ultra. they make note 3 and htc one max irrelevant. superior design and better specs, camera, etc.
Hi htc, I'm waiting for this htc one max. best competitor of samsung note III. What about its dimension..
Bezels are smaller(relatively) than on the One. That's a good thing, but the battery must be removable.
[deleted post]Yeah. i agree with you.. the bezel is another thing.
I got S4 as my 1st phone and iphone5 as my 2nd phone. Come on Htc.. make it removable battery. I need to to replace my iphone5.
Much much better than note 3 because samsung is jerk, makes technically dump device that hangs, give problem after six month of use but only reason to buy is, innovative but HTC is best
