HTC Announces “Advantage” Program, Will Replace Your Cracked Screen for Free

This morning, along with its event announcement for the One follow-up on March 25, HTC announced a new program called “Advantage” that is free to all owners of the HTC One, One Mini, and One Max. Think of sort of like handset protection in a way, only this is free and certainly has time limitations.

The program includes things like a “commitment to Android updates” for two years, free cloud storage, HTC’s backup service, and “hands-on” help. But where you may really find some use, is through the program’s free cracked screen replacement. HTC will replace the screen on your One, One Mini, or One Max within the first six months of ownership for free.  (more…)

Quick Review: HTC One Max

From a consumer standpoint, HTC launched the One Max to counter Samsung’s booming Galaxy Note line and enter into the “phablet” market. The only issue is that when entering a market completely controlled by Samsung and its marketing teams, you are fighting a constant uphill battle to gain traction. The One Max takes its looks from the HTC One, a device we did enjoy much earlier this year in our reviews. Although, with the Max’s 5.9″ display and extremely heavy body, is it possible that HTC designed themselves completely out of the race against other large devices?

The device has been on the market now for almost one month exactly, so we won’t be dropping a complete full-on review, but did want to touch on the essentials and go over our thoughts on HTC’s latest. Plus, it has a fingerprint scanner.

Here’s our quick review of the One Max.  (more…)

The HTC One Max, with its massive 5.9-inch HD display and Snapdragon 600 processor, is now available from Verizon for $299 on two-year contract or $599 at full retail (woof). Leaked for months before its unveiling, the One Max is sort of a mix between the original One and One Mini, only it has been supersized. With its current specs and gimmicky fingerprint scanner, it tends to fall in the mid-range One Mini category, only HTC and Verizon clearly think this is a top tier device given the price.  (more…)

One Max

This week, we finally got our hands on the leviathan known as the One Max from HTC. It is currently available from Sprint, running on the 4G LTE network, purchasable for the price of $149.99 on a two year agreement when porting your number to their network. To cut to the chase, this is the largest phone we have probably ever held. Not only is it massive, but given its metallic body, it is also extremely heavy to hold. It’s an incredibly unique experience, and we are pretty excited to put it through the paces.  (more…)
