Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it.

Forum Added for the Jumbo-Sized HTC One Max
Ever wonder what it would take to dwarf the Samsung Galaxy Note 3? Now we know the answer, and it’s the HTC One Max. The HTC One Max is, for the most part, a larger version of the critically acclaimed HTC One.
The One Max’s defining trait is its 5.9″ Super LCD 3 panel. Packing a 1080p resolution, this equates to approximately 373 ppi. Similarly to the international version of the HTC One, the One Max features a quad-core 1.7 GHz Snapdragon 600 processor. Unlike the original HTC One, however, this device packs a fingerprint reader on the rear of the device that can be used to launch various applications.
The One Max’s speedy Snapdragon 600 processor is backed by 2 gigs of RAM and either 16 or 32 gigs of internal storage. The device also features a 4 MP “Ultrapixel” camera sensor backed by an f/2 lens. On the software front, the HTC One Max comes preloaded with Android 4.3 and a serving of Sense 5.5—just like what we recently saw roll out to the international One.
Are you excited about the One Max, or is it simply too big? Is the One Max still a “phone,” or would you consider it a small tablet that just happens to make phone calls? Let us know in the comments section below. And don’t forget to visit the newly created HTC One Max forum to get in on the discussion.
