Verizon Wireless today starts offering the HTC One max with 5.9" full HD display and Android with Sense UI. The HTC One max is now available online and in stores for $299.99 with a new two-year activation. Verizon Edge is also available for eligible customers who want to upgrade.
The One max looks much like the HTC One and even more like the HTC One mini. It has the same iconic design, but it loses the unibody design and metal chamfers on the side due to the removable back cover. That cover is quite large, but it only grants access to the microSD card slot and SIM card slot (not the battery, which is still sealed inside). This is a large phone and it's heavy at 7.7 ounces. Unlike the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and other big phones and tablets, HTC didn't work on slimming the design to make it easier to handle. You'll definitely need two hands to manage this beast. The upside is that you get a fantastically large and gorgeous full HD display that's every bit as lovely as the HTC One's. If you buy the One max, you won't need a 7 inch tablet.
