HTC One Max Dummy Units Arrive in Verizon Stores, Price to be $299

htc one max verizon

Waiting to get your hands on the One Max (hands-on) through Verizon? Anybody? Well, just in case you actually are, you should know that dummy units are starting to arrive at retail locations, priced at what is expected to be $299 on a new two year agreement. For that price, you will spend the next two years with a device sporting a massive 5.9″ 1080p display, a Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and an UltraPixel camera. 

Unlike the Galaxy Note 3, and its impressive spec sheet, the One Max does not a sport a helpful stylus, but instead comes equipped with a fingerprint scanner. As you can see in the pictures above, Verizon has found plenty of space on this large device to brand it as their own, but this is no surprise. It’s Verizon.

Any takers?

Cheers ___!

    Wow, $300 off contract, great job htc! Wait….whaa…..?? These will be marked down to $150 OC within two months.

    I upgraded my wife from a 4s to the Note 2… she was hesitant at first but she will now be the first to tell anyone that the Note 2 is awesome. And she does not use SPen very often at all, only in novel situations. I actually showed her the Mega the other day at a kiosk and she was sad it wasnt on Verizon although she noticed the screen quality was poor.

    She is excited to check this phone out because she thinks the One is prettier than the not and she is all for a bigger screen. Kind of bummed the camera is worse than the One and probably the Note 2 but I will at least let her check this thing out…

    $299 is ricockulous though.

      If you buy it from Amazon it is reasonable. I just switched to Verizon and the phone was $109 shipped. This phone blows my note 2 away. Finally a phone that doesn’t feel like cheap plastic…

    I went from loving HTC to hating HTC and now I just feel sorry for them. Samsung would never let Verizon get away that BS. HTC works to develope a product and then let’s Verizon put their name on it. This phone will fail almost as badly as their Facebook phone did.

    We got a dummy unit at my store yesterday. Holy sweet baby Jesus is it big. My thing is, while I realize specs aren’t everything, how could one possibility justify spending $300 on this monstrosity? For the same money you can get the more useful and powerful Note 3, and for less money and a total beast in the spec department, a G2. Yeah I’m going to have a hard time recommending this to any customer, even if they’re a hardcore HTC fan. Especially when there’s better, and more practical options available.

    If you buy this I have some far northern ocean front property to sell you.

  • George264

    they.. they.

  • Detonation

    Just buy the One and a magnifying glass. Look through the magnifying glass when using the phone and you’ve basically got yourself a One Maxx (that’s easier to hold)

  • Godzilla

    My penis is still bigger than this

  • Carl W.

    Only Verizon can take an already underwhelmed phone, and make it over priced. Oh, and slap their logos all over it too.

  • crazysamz

    Yea we got these a few days ago in my store. Massive even next to my N III

    • Vanquishgc

      It dwarfs my Note 2, which is both impressive and ridiculous at the same time. The fact that the specs aren’t that far off from each other, considering the Note 2 is almost a year old is honestly kind of insulting to not just consumers, but sales reps that are expected to actually sell this bucket of suck as well. Come on HTC, you’re better than this….

  • Chase Chick

    Wow what a terrible deal.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    M8….or GTFO.

    • ⓂMarikel Lika

    This time next year I think we will be witnessing the end of HTC. They will either merge with another company or go out of business. It’s sad but with unnecessary phones like this coming out its no wonder why they continue to fail.

    • El_Big_CHRIS

      God I hope not. I love my Blue One. I only want on screen name keys. But if HTC fails that t means no good competition; we’d have only plastic from Sammy and LG and moto.

  • Isaac W

    Who would pay $300 bucks for a fake phone? Geez…

  • EC8CH


    Verizon: Hey HTC… you know the prime Logo real estate you used on the front of your One series phones?

    HTC: Ummmm…. Yeah.

    Verizon: That’s ours now.

    • joejoe5709

      Lol. Comment of the day. That is exactly how that conversation went.

  • joejoe5709

    Why anyone would buy this over the Note 3 is beyond me. Sure, front speakers and better color saturation and such but that’s not worth it.

    • roberthenderson

      And I found the setting to tone down the saturation factor in my Note 3 and it works well.

  • Adrynalyne

    299? LOL.

  • Dominick White

    Any other phone on Verizon is better than this

  • Godzilla

    This is supposed to compete with the note 3 and yet they stuck with the S600 and 2GB of RAM. come on HTC push the envelope a little.

    • crazed_z06

      Agreed. This thing is doomed. No reason to buy it over the well-established Note devices.

    • George264

      The Moto X is competing with the One and S4, cmon Motorola, put a S600 in there.
      The iPhone 5S is competing with quad-core phones, cmon Apple put something more than dual-core and 1 GB of RAM!

      The S600 is plenty fast.

      • primarchlion

        Plenty fast but the construction isn’t on par with the original One, no OIS, and S600 rather than S800. Should be $200 on contract I think.

  • Matthew Leib

    work at a wireless zone. it’s heavy. just shy of half a pound

    • joejoe5709

      Sure looks like a metal brick too. Even for a phablet, this thing looks huge.

      • Matthew Leib

        yeah it’s obnoxious.

        • MattyP

          I actually really like it’s size and design. I can use it perfectly fine and I got rid of my N7 hoping for a phablet that was big enough just for games and other media. I have a Razer Edge Pro for my large tablet needs, this is the perfect companion device.

          Won’t pay $299 for it but if they have the Verizon30 discount or something else that brings it down to $199 or even $149 soon, I’ll gladly pick it up.
