Customize Your HTC One Max with Xtended Settings

The HTC One Max is HTC’s answer to the incredibly successful Note series by Samsung. With top notch specs, a beautiful screen, and running Sense 6 (as of a couple of months ago), the One Max is a great device to have in your hand if phablets are your thing. If you happen to be an owner of the One Max and are looking to further customize its interface, in a big way or small way, you may want to...

[OTA, RUU Available] Verizon HTC One Max Receives Sense 6

Over the past several weeks, we've seen several variants of HTC's former flagship M7 receive their official updates to Sense 6. This started with the Sense 6 roll out to developer and unlocked devices, and continued with updates to the T-Mobile, Verizon, Sprint, and AT&T variants of the device. All of these M7 updates naturally lead many to wonder about the status of the M7's larger sibling, the HTC One Max. But other than a Sense 6 update for the Sprint variant released at the beginning of this...

[OTA Captured] Sprint HTC One Max Receives Sense 6, Brings Features from the M8

Back at the tail end of last month, we talked about how HTC had updated its software update pages to display their progress in bringing Sense 6 to older devices. At the time, every available HTC One Max variant and practically all of the M7 devices were receiving carrier bloatware as part of the "integration" stage. Now less than one month later, almost all of these devices are  prepping for release in the "certification" phase. However, one stands above the rest in receiving the Sense 6 update first,...

First seen on the HTC One M8, Sense 6 brings many key refinements to the Taiwanese OEM's signature interface such as a heavily updated launcher, improved aesthetics, and much more.

Verizon HTC One Max to Receive Android 4.4.2 + Sense 5.5 on Monday!

The HTC One Max is the bigger brother to last year's flagship HTC One. Although it's been a bit slower to receive the KitKat than its more reasonably sized sibling, we've already seen the update roll out to the European and Sprint versions of the device. Unfortunately, however, this does nothing for device owners in different regions and/or on different carriers such as Verizon here in the US, which typically lags behind its competitors when it comes to updates. Now, we've gotten...

Leaked HTC Sense 6 Update Schedule for Current Gen Devices

Just one week ago, we took a look at a leaked video that gave viewers a quick walk-through of what was purported to be HTC's yet to be released Sense 6. While the veracity of the leaked video is still unknown, we do know that Sense 6 is on the horizon. It's only a matter of time before it reaches consumer devices---well, if the company doesn't go under before then due to poor sales and perplexing legal practices. So naturally, the...
