If you like massive phones, fingerprint scanners, HTC, and Verizon, today might just be the luckiest day of your life. Why is that, you ask? I'll tell you why! Because the massive HTC One Max is now available on Big Red. See, dreams really do come true.

But let's say you're not the huge-phone-fingerprint-scanner-HTC-Verizon-loving type. Let's say you have no idea what the One Max is. No problem, let's just clear that up right now.

The One Max is HTC's try at a big ol' phone, coming in with a 5.9-inch screen. Stylistically it looks like a stretched-out HTC One, which includes BOOMSOUND (aka front-facing speakers); however, HTC also cut some corners and took out some of the things that make the One special, like the OIS camera, for example. The Max just has a regular 4UP (UltraPixel) camera. Bummer. However, it does have a nifty fingerprint scanner that scans your fingerprints because reasons, so that's something.

If the One Max sounds like a dream trapped inside a cell phone to you, you can head on over to your local Verizon and pick one up for three Benjamins ($300) with a two-year agreement. Or, you could just stay comfortable at your computer and order one from here. They'll even send it to you! See? Like a pillow, Verizon really is there to support you.

    IMHO HTC has ruined an enormous opportunity jumping from a revered 4.7 flagship to an overly massive 5.9 device. It's simply too intimidating for too many.
    Why not land on 5.3 or 5.5, could have brought together those looking for a high end phone or phablet that competes with the Note 3.

    After using it at the store, I really started to like the phone. Blinkfeed rocks on such a big screen, and the Sense interface is so much nicer than touchwiz. The big battery should make the device last all day, and you can even install apps in the micro sd slot. I guess I just like big phones.
