    One of these devices is a unibody aluminum flagship launched almost a year ago, a hardware showboat built to bring unique audio and optical features to the Android world. The other is a minimalistic slab of "hardcore plastic" with the specs of a superphone but the price of a budget model, its entire purpose to showcase the very best of Google's handheld products and services. So why are these devices, so far apart in time and targeting, being brought together for this comparison? Because each is top-tier, in its own way - and each is also sold in the Google Play Store. Dive in, then, to ...

    Fun fact: flame wars, petty bickering, and troll hijinks aren't just confined to the online world; they find a ready home in corporate tactics as well. That's a reality we were reminded of this week, as Apple announced its new iPad family on the same day Nokia unveiled not just its first Windows-based tablet, but also the first-ever Windows Phone phablets, at its Nokia World event in Abu Dhabi. Predictably, the Apple news obliterated Nokia's announcement in the news cycle - but, the Pocketnow Weekly being a platform-agnostic, equal-opportunity podcast, we're gonna cover both new device ...

    Yes, we agree, it's not fair that the HTC One max gets all the fun of Android 4.3 and the new version of HTC Sense 5.5. Obviously we know that the flagship is the HTC One, and lucky for those of you with international models, that changes today. The good thing is that HTC has proven to be quite good when it comes to software updates this year, and they keep delivering on that promise. As of today those of you that are rocking an international HTC One can download an Android 4.3 update, that in return includes HTC Sense 5.5. We know that Android 4.3 isn't new for most of the device's users ...

    You might say this comparison is unnecessary. After all, most people don't need help deciding whether to buy a smartphone or a refrigerator door, right? Given the choice between a standard-sized handheld and a beastly monolith, most folks can tell pretty quickly which they prefer. But it's not that simple. HTC's One is one of the most visible, most well-regarded smartphones of the year -  and so it would follow, in the mind of the mythical average consumer, that something called the "One max" should be even better - maybe much better, right? Well, as our full HTC One max review revealed, ...

    "Excuse me - is that a phone or a tablet?" "That doesn't fit in your pocket, does it?" "That must be one of them new 'phablets,' huh?" "What ... what is that thing?" Carrying the HTC One max for the past seven days has been an exercise in patience - patience with the curious public. Like Samsung's first Galaxy Note, and the LG Optimus Vu, and the Sony Xperia Z Ultra, and other pioneering slabs of the recent past, HTC's latest smartphone is an audacious foray into uncharted territory. Yes, phones with larger screens and better specs have beaten it to market, but never before has a ...

    Today all the news seems to be about the HTC One max. Some love it, others hate it. Taken as a whole, the newest device from HTC seems like nothing more than a big version of their old flagship. And that's okay HTC has found a form-factor that looks good, functions well, and is very obviously scalable between small and large -- at least when we're talking about smartphones. Many will tell you that it's simply not enough. They'll say that HTC needed to pour the latest and greatest of everything into their newest device. Some will even call this "another nail in the coffin" and will predict ...

    There's a reality behind every single successful product that has ever existed: they've all served a purpose. It could be the most trivial of things, like a $1 game that could entertain you so well, and yet be so inexpensive, that people just flocked to buy it, to more complicated things, like mixing the luxury of a sedan with the suspension of a truck to give you an SUV. Regardless if its entertainment or utility, products succeed when they either satisfy a need, or create a desire. I still remember walking the streets of Barcelona in 2012 with Tony, and seeing so many of the Asian ...

    HTC's One Max phablet has been leaking in various forms for months now, and while HTC has yet to go official with this baby, we've already hear a considerable bit about the handset. Today, the most recent One Max rumors to make the rounds go into a little extra detail about the hardware and software configuration with which the Android could arrive. Like, remember that fingerprint scanner to surface on a leaked image? There's no mention of such a feature in this leaked spec breakdown, calling into question its existence (which was already pretty shaky to begin with). As for software, this ...
