HTC's new flagship phone emphasizes that size matters with a 5.9 inch screen. The size differential between these models is considerable. The One Mini is 4.3 inches while the One is 4.7 inches.

The iPhone 5S started a wave of interest in fingerprint scanners and the HTC One Max has this feature embedded right below the camera lens. The feature can be programmed for up to three prints which can launch three separate apps without unlocking the home screen.

3. The Megapixel Camera Returns

The camera is missing one key ingredient. (The Verge)

The One Max's camera fails to include Optical Image Stabilization. This essential function supports high-quality pictures but makes it difficult to capture these images in a low-light environment or sitting still but the high-res graphics help clean up the picture.
