Your friends may call it a phablet, but it’s really just your new super-sized smartphone. Whatever you call it, the line between phone and tablet is blurring as users demand larger smartphone screens for surfing the web, watching video and playing games. It all started with the 5.3-inch Samsung Galaxy Note, but manufactures didn’t stop there. Now there are several devices on the market with 5.5-inch or larger displays that truly push the limits of our pockets. If you’re ready to ditch your puny handset in favor of a ginormous device, these are the biggest smartphones on earth.
HTC's One is easily one of the best smartphones on the planet. So, HTC figured, why not super-size it? The HTC One Max is a 5.9-inch behemoth. It offers all of the same features of the original One, but brings a new fingerprint reader that can be programmed to open specific apps, as well as the latest version of HTC's Sense interface. But the all aluminum, plus-sized One is one of the heaviest handsets around at 7.6 ounces. And with its front-mounted BoomSound speakers, this is also one of the tallest phablets at 6.5 inches. Max indeed.
