In October I was contacted by HTC’s PR agency here in London, and after a series of discussions they sent me a HTC One max to test for a month. I’ll admit, working on the same website as Brian means that I come across easily as a Luddite to the mobile community enthusiasts: my daily driver since Jan 2011 is a Samsung Galaxy S2 on a 24 month contract, which is slowly dying. It did not help that I have a custom ROM on there that is broken, but the battery is giving up the ghost and the memory is not big enough to accommodate all I need. In seeing this, I was shipped a HTC One max retail unit before their release in the UK. By jove, it is MASSIVE.
