HTC One Max Pictured Again, This Time With Something to Compare Its Size to

HTC One Max

Yesterday, we got a fantastic look at HTC’s upcoming One Max smartphone. They were some good pictures that showed off a massive-looking device, but it was still hard to tell just how big this phone was. Thanks to a new leak, we now have it sitting on bottom of another device (an XT882 from Motorola), so we can see a good comparison of the One Max against something else that is already on the market. For your reference, the XT882 has a 4″ display, with dimensions coming in at 4.81″ x 2.46″ x 0.52″.

The One Max is still expected to launch with a 5.9″ 1080p display, a Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB+ of RAM, an UltraPixel camera, BoomSound, and hopefully HTC will throw in some other goodies to take advantage of that gorgeous display.

Show of hands – who’s interested?

    Be warned that HTC will only support this device for 9 months max after it’s release.

  • Roy Furious

    So glad that they used another phone that NO ONE HAS for a point of reference…

  • wtfverizon

    Verizon should get this by lets say ……………………… March 2015………………………… sounds about right . Any other guesses

  • NIGHTSCOUT

    Still waiting for that Max-iPad

  • RaptorOO7

    So the real question is can we install the GPe OS from the HTC One?

  • Eduardo Cruz

    I was just wondering for the people that have the note 2, is that your daily driver?or what cuz this screen is kinda too big.jw what it is?

  • Ashish Raj

    Hmmm.. Shouldn’t you be comparing the One Max to Samsung Note??? You think that One Max is “ridiculous..ly large” (according to your G+ post); so, kind of curious on what your thoughts are on the Note?

  • David Narada Brown

    The specs make this phone a beast, the size makes it a MONSTER! If i could sell my galaxy nexus and nexus 7 (first model) this would be a great replacement. But i would feel a lil awkward with a nexus 7 and a HTC Max. Not a fan of the max either thats the battery boss droids name add on.

  • CJ SMOOVE

    I’ll take the 3 Gig over the 2 Gig

    • abrego47

      i think the 3 gig is to help with all the gimmicks that samsung has so it won’t take up the storage just like the s4.

  • srinuadp

    Hmmm

  • MrMLK

    Looks nice and I love the front facing speakers, but I have grown to love the replaceable battery of my GN2. Also, its only 16GB internal, and I am guessing the GN3 is going to be at least 32.

  • itsacardigan

    Give it a year or 2 and 5.5″ will be the standard.

    • itsacardigan

      I’ve had my Note 2 since December…almost traded it in for a Razr Maxx HD after 2 weeks because it seemed too big. After getting used to it…I couldn’t imagine using anything smaller. All it needs is ON Screen Nav Keys and a GPE version.

  • T_Dizzle

    Having large hands this phone has my attention. More details please!!! I miss my Droid Incredible. My gnex has served its purpose, next.

  • Eric R.

    Even though megapixels don’t mean much. I want a higher mp camera on this phone than4

    • Tyler Durden

      Yeah I want something like that Lumia 1020

    • tomn1ce

      Maybe they’ll stick an 8 ultra pixels camera…

  • Ron_Swanson

    Wow. If a 64 gb option comes to Sprint, I seriously might consider giving up my HTC One for this….let’s see an unboxing already. Ha!

    • Tyler Durden

      People still have sprint?

      • onlygoodtime88

        idiot are you 5 years old

        • Tyler Durden

          I think the only child here, is you.

          • onlygoodtime88

            really you acting like a child ? your a piece of ….

          • JoshGroff

            I’m going to take Tyler’s side on this one. He may be trolling, but you’re the one acting like a child.

          • onlygoodtime88

            yes your Tyler other account your are him

          • JoshGroff

            I do disagree with him most of the time, but occasionally he has a valid point. This is one of such occasions.

          • JoshGroff

            Please tell me you’re trolling and your English and grammar aren’t that bad, or that English isn’t your native language.

          • Weber

            Not to mention the English is atrocious.

          • JoshGroff

            The sad state of the internet.

          • dmagicp

            Plus Tyler is a regular so he is kind of in his own house.

          • Ej McCarty

            I’ll probably always take tyler’s side because the people that don’t think it’s funny are the ones that have absolutely no sense of humor. He’s obviously being sarcastic and I’m sure no one else here EVER does that right? /s

            I’m on the edge for this cliffhanger. I MUST KNOW WHAT HE’S A PIECE OF!!! Is he a piece of key lime pie?

      • SA_NYC

        As a generally-satisfied Verizon subscriber, I say THANK YOU to the Sprint/T-Mo/other subscribers out there. Seriously, without you we’d really be at the mercy of the Big Two duopoly. We need more competition, not less.

      • Ron_Swanson

        Meh. Just left Verizon, I get decent speeds in my area and it’s a hell of a lot cheaper. Nothing beats Verizons’ speeds obviously, but Sprint’s coverage in my area is decent (10-11mbps) and I get unlimited data. No complaints here.

  • Eric R.

    I have an iPhone. My next phone is going to be an iPhone. But you should get the HTC One Max.

    • flascrnwrtr

      Don’t know that I would admit that whole “I have an iPhone” thing, in public. People might wonder why, if you love it so much, you are perusing the DroidLife boards. Ohhhh… troll… I get it now.

      • dmagicp

        Dude Jesus Christ. Have you even read Droid Life over the past 24 hours? You’re like the last person to get the joke.

        • Daistaar

          Why’d I read your comment in Stan Marsh’s voice?! LOL

        • flascrnwrtr

          Dude, I was joking. Are you serious? Eric has a multitude of comments all over DL that make it obvious he is an android guy. This is why I usually just read and lurk. Thanks for reminding me. :-(

        • michael arazan

          They know ron is reading it, and cringes a little more every time someone makes the remarks.

          It’s Called Busting His Balls!!!

    • RaptorOO7

      Your current phone is equal to your IQ, your next phone will still be equal to your IQ and if you still don’t understand then I will put it this way. It will never get any bigger, any faster or any better. Apple controls you.

      • GuidZilla

        wooooOOOOOSHHHH

  • Payaso

    Go big or go home!!!

  • Matt Gondek

    I don’t see the allure of these massive phones, someone set me straight here

  • Anderson Cheong

    Is this the first time that an XT882 appears on DL? FYI, XT882 is very similar to the Atrix 4G but less RAM (512MB only) and it is a dual-card-dual-standby phone exclusive for China Telecom with one CDMA and one GSM slot.

    (Thanks Marco@ePrice for the picture)

  • Kyle Miller

    So no other phone was available for size comparison?

    • JoshGroff

      I know, right. At least use a One for comparison. >.>

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Tiny Bezels.

    But I’m not a phablet fan… 4.7-5 inches… I kind of refuse to go bigger

  • DanSan

    HELLO!!!

    • michael arazan

      When ever I hear nokia original ringtone that show always goes through my head

  • http://www.yepi-yepi.com/ Yepi Friv

    It looks so big..Like a giant

  • Guest

    Only if it had a better camera. Not a fan of the UltraPixel…DOA

    • EnX$$

      the 4m UltraPixel is better than so many phones better don’t talk before you know the camera. maybe now its 8 or 13 ultrapix no one knows wait for it to come out

      • jboogie1289

        I thought the “Ultra pixel” came out to be 12 Megapixels in the end? Still falls short of the Samsung effort. IJS……

  • Sam

    If it’s more than 16GB storage, I’d get it.

    • EnX$$

      it is 16gb + sd card. or they would do 32 or 64 without sd card

      • Tyler Durden

        False

        • EnX$$

          troll go home

          • Tyler Durden

            You’re the troll.

            Its exactly the same as the One just bigger. No SD slot.

          • EnX$$

            go home your an a S S you dislike every comment here

          • Tyler Durden

            Didn’t anyone ever tell you that you’re not supposed to go full retard.

          • JoshGroff

            It’s a hard job, but somebody has to do it. At the end of the day, do likes/dislikes really matter?

          • Tyler Durden

            Somebody has to contain the butt hurt. Its common among the young generations.

    • Weber

      expandable floppy drive

  • Shaunwin

    One Max or Note 3…..hmmmm? The race to which come to VZW first.

    • Weber

      You probably know the answer to that.

      • michael arazan

        And we’re still waiting on the One.

        4-5 month old phone, and Verizon will charge us brand new prices too.
        Should give $100 discount on full price if you still buy the one on verizon and waited this long for it

        • Weber

          Pipe dreams, friend. Since it’s still “top-tier,” minimum of $200 on contract. Hell, the RAZR MAXX was still $200 up until a few days before announcing the Ultra series.

          I can’t justify getting the HTC One anymore when I’ve already waited this long. That’s a shame, too, because I really wanted this phone at first. We’ll get the One Max about six months after (if) the HTC One comes to V-Town. What sucks is that I now have no clue wtf phone I want to get anymore. I refuse to get an S4, but there’s not much that’s coming out in the pipeline soon besides the G2 that really piques my interest. While the One Max does sound nice and purty, we know that won’t come out until monthS down the line.

        • Higher_Ground

          But you can get it in blue! /s

    • RaptorOO7

      The Note 3 will likely hit Verizon first, in say late November to late December, One Max, maybe Q1 2014.

    • Joe

      My guess is that any variant of the HTC One (including the original) will come to Verizon sometime between when pigs fly and hell freezes over! Verizon truly is a waste of sperm!

  • EnX$$

    R.I.P samsung galaxy note 3

    • Jonathan Bunch

      not so fast…samsung may still take the lead if they have bigger/removable battery and expandable storage

      • BSweetness

        Yep. A removable battery and expandable storage are two key elements for me. I’ve also found the Note 2′s S-Pen to be a great feature. I’m glad to see some serious competition in the large-screen phone arena, and I love the look of the One Max, but HTC will really have to bring something awesome and unexpected to the table for me to consider it.

        • tomn1ce

          They have a hobby of killing their device with small batteries or no expandable storage…

          • hkklife

            What we REALLY need ASAP is an Optimus G Pro refresh on ALL carriers! I personally have no need or desire for a stylus and I love the G Pro’s combination of formfactor and specs.

      • tomn1ce
      • RaptorOO7

        If Samsung delivers in the US a 32GB or 64GB internal storage plus microSD slot then it will be no contest. If they stick with the lame 16GB with less than 10GB usable space then One Max will take the prize unless of course HTC is plain dumb and goes 16GB as the Chinese version seems to indicate.

    • jboogie1289

      Ummm…… Not! But thanks for the joke.

    • Greyhame

      SO confusing to me why people post comments like this (falsely) predicting the demise of other extremely popular devices (including the i*hone)…

      Competition is good!!

      • RaptorOO7

        There is no predicting required. HTC doesn’t have the cash to launch and all out assault on Samsung and we already know that Samsung has upped their game on each Galaxy Note and will likely do so again. It’s not about the screen size (they have the Mega series) its about the entire package, stylus, added software to benefit, storage, microSD.

        Personally I would like an HTC One Max but I need to see specs on both before I pick a horse.

        • Greyhame

          In your first paragraph you’re falling into the same trap of dismissing a phone you’ve never had a chance to play with. In the second paragraph you regain some of your senses.

          My point is twofold. First, we have yet to see this device in action, so it would be stupid to dismiss it so readily. Second, competition is what drives innovation. Why would Samsung need to keep innovating with the Note if there was no competition? Blind fanboyism is lame in all its guises.

  • Tyler Durden

    Surprised they couldn’t add a bigger camera to their bigger body

  • Daeshaun Griffiths

    anybody peep the micro usb placement? possble htc pen?

    • JoshGroff

      I’d be interested, all comes down to functionality between this and the Note 3.

      • Tyler Durden

        Stylus>

        • Jack

          it will have styles just like the HTC flyer

          • Tyler Durden

            But will it have the software for it….probably not

          • JoshGroff

            That’s the breaking point, and we know Samsung probably has some extra random features baked in for the N3.

          • Tyler Durden

            Samsung is the only company to dominate the stylus crowd. With all the features of the Note 2 plus whatever they have for the Note 3 will far surpass ant HTcrap

          • JoshGroff

            Tbh, recently Samsung’s been dominating everything. (aside from build quality, but I’d prefer higher end internals and more customization on the software front)

          • Tyler Durden

            Definitely. Finally Apple is falling due to it

          • Ej McCarty

            Ron must have got on three different accounts of his and downvoted that haha.

          • btod

            Yes, probably another useless feature like S Blink, which allows you to blink to exit a menu.

          • JoshGroff

            10/10 would buy. (admittedly there are many gimmicky features, but some are actually useful)

          • MichaelFranz

            hope you dont get something stuck in your eye…phone may shut down… :)

          • onlygoodtime88

            i hope it has stylus

    • RaptorOO7

      The placement of the microUSB is where Samsung has a stylus. The HTC One microUSB is in the middle, perhaps there is a reason its moved, or maybe its not plugged in.

  • ranlil

    Too damn big

  • Daeshaun Griffiths

    dayyyyum
