Definitely major congrats to Taylor and Clark.
Based on the rumored specs of this Htc One Max it's already a FAIL before it even reaches production. A 5.99 inch 1080 p device with a 3300mAh battery will be Piss poor you can count on that. Htc is famous for handset's with drastically poor battery life and boring features with no enhancements. My current Galaxy Note 2 has a 3100mAh battery that is clearly industry leading today. Only the Razr Maxx Hd is better. Face reality the Galaxy Note 3 will launch with a 4200mAh battery with better software solutions and feature implementations. The Htc One Max won't come close to the overall standard of the Galaxy Note 3.
@Rising33 don't be as clueless as squiddy20 the comments I read concerning you are all that bright. Go buy a clue.
Mr. Squiddy20 the androidandme troll of course you would respond. Someone that hasn't owned a decent device in years. You lugged around that crappy Samsung Moment for over 2yrs then you finally bought a outdated Galaxy Nexus on Sprint. You are one of the biggest lower this site has ever had. You can only wish you were able to have or purchase the last 7plus devices I have owned these last 2yrs. I get what I want when I want and I pay the cost to be the boss. I'm not laying up at mommies house looking for a handout. You are definitely comical at best.
Just as I stated Samsung software and feature implementations are unmatched period. No current manufacturer is offering anything that even comes close from a skinned feature standpoint. Samsung has millions upon millions of dedicated customers people who purchase yearly Samsung products faithfully. They know what they are getting and they look forward yearly to these enhancements. What you claim to be a gimmick is legitimate features that are industry leading. Pop up browser, pop up video player, Snote, Ssuggest, multi window, and every camera feature pisses on anything currently on the market from a feature standpoint. Stop fooling yourself
Like I said Samsung made this category prominent which is where we stand today. The Dell streak years ago made the first 5 inch device which was a total FLOP. It's Samsung who opened up everyone's eyes to the Phablet category. Plain and simple a proven product as well as a proven track record is exactly what Samsung has. Based on that they are the industry standard and leader of the android platform period.
All I will say is let's see. I find it very funny how 2yrs ago Samsung was crazy and nobody wanted I big phone factor. Everyone stood on the sidelines laughing and talking crap when the original Galaxy Note landed in 2011. Now 2yrs later Samsung has made this category prominent and legitimate with it's Galaxy Note and last year's Gold standard Galaxy Note 2. Now it's time for everyone to jump on the bandwagon with all these rookie devices flooding the market. Htc, Sony, Lg all want to join the party well guys let's keep it real the Galaxy Note family line is a industry leading proven product with game changing software solutions and feature implementations unmatched by any manufacturer. Nobody will beat the Galaxy Note 3 period.
Oh brother another device for Verizon to cosmetically change and strip out features. I fell sorry for anyone on Verizon the cosmetic and altering network. Piss on Verizon
It's so lovely that I dumped Verizon last June 2012. It's been a wonderful run on tmobile with great products. Now the Galaxy S4 Google edition as well as the Htc One Google Edition. What more choices can anyone ask for. The Galaxy Note 3 around the corner nothing will ever beat that on Tmobile.
Galaxy Note 3 only. Case closed on this unproven Motorola Xphone product.
Verizon sucks monkey balls.
Here in the south Bronx Jennifer Lopez will always be BIG TIME. She'd know exactly what I mean about that otherwise PISS ON VERIZON.
At&t sucks monkey balls regardless of this. They have piss poor data plans and are one of worst carriers in updating handsets. Matters of fact At&t and Verizon both equally suck monkey balls.
Sense is a pile of dog doo. Nature UI pisses all over Sense.
Verizon sucks monkey balls.
I love it Samsung and Google saying here's MUD in your eye Verizon. That makes me happy.
Seriously this is much to do about nothing period. It's very simple pictures, movies, video's on sdcard. Downloaded Applications on internal memory of phone why is that so hard here. My 16gb Galaxy Note 2 came with 10.97 available internal storage I have 128 installed applications out of those apps 30 apps are games Maxx Payne, The Dead, Dead Trigger, Backstab Hd, Real racing 3, Sg deadzone, Temple Run 2, it's endless. This storage space IS NO ISSUE PERIOD.
Clearly this is NOTHING more than a large screened smartphone with NO real true productivity ability nor actual multitasking abilities on the level of the Galaxy Note 2. Then they bring it to market with android 4.1.2 and 21gb of usable storage out of 32gb. The problem with LG has always been it's ability to update devices as well as software flaws. I wouldn't touch this device for free on today's market. Clearly the Galaxy Note 2 is the GOLD STANDARD of technology today the device that all manufacturers are trying to catch up to and copy. Samsung has nothing to worry about here the Gpro won't sell to well on At&t Samsung already has this market tied down with legitimate products that are simply better. And we won't even discuss the Galaxy Note 3 which will ultimately BITCH SLAP this silly copycat device.
Bottom line here Samsung has well deserved it's standing on the android platform these last 2years. They have delivered device after device with industry leading software solutions and feature implementations the best on any hanset. Apple can only wish they had any relevance in tech game today. Apple is extremely useless, boring and dull pretty much a sad conclusion. Like it or not people better realize Samsung will not only increase it's hold in market share from 40% in 2012 to almost 50% in 2013. I expect 75million S4's to be sold in 2013 and 25million Galaxy Note 3's. Fall back Samsung haters they rule this market.
