Vlad Savov doesn’t have much good to say about the new HTC One Mac with fingerprint scanner.
When I reviewed the original Galaxy Note, I described it as a bad idea executed extremely well. The HTC One max is the diametric opposite. Enlarging the HTC One design and adding a fingerprint sensor seems like a great way to build on a strength and add something new and unique. The result, however, has been an ergonomically stilted device whose best new feature will be classed as either a gimmick or a disaster.
I can think of no good reason to buy the One max over the original One or even the One mini. And if you absolutely must have a large-screen device, Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 does a better job at almost everything while also being smaller and lighter.
