Smartphones come in various shapes and sizes. The choice sometimes comes down to personal preference and needs when picking out a new smartphone. Fans of large screens now have a new choice to fulfill that need, the HTC One max with a 5.9-inch full HD display.

The HTC One max is now available online and in stores for $299.99 with a new two-year activation. Verizon Edge is also available for eligible customers who want to upgrade.

Video fans can appreciate the large HD screen for their lifestyle. Apps like NFL Mobile and Netflix are a different experience when watching on a 5.9-inch full HD display and not having to hold the phone up and close to your face. And with HTC BoomSound, the two-front facing speakers can make users feel as though they have a home theater in their pockets.

Users will notice familiar features from the HTC One on the HTC One max plus a few new ones such as a fingerprint scanner. Many people check their phones numerous times a day, and sometimes it can be annoying having to enter a PIN or password each time. Swiping a finger is an easy and convenient way to unlock and use a phone. Apps can even be assigned to individual fingers as shortcuts; so, for example, the pointer finger can launch the messaging app and the index finger can launch the camera.

In today’s world, pockets and bags are filling up with devices. The One max can be the device that helps clear up some space by acting as a smartphone, tablet and mobile wallet. The smartphone is Softcard-ready* and comes with an enhanced SIM card pre-installed so it can become a wallet and replace the need to carry credit cards, loyalty cards and other special offers. The Softcard Mobile Wallet app lets users pay with their phones and can be downloaded from the Google Play store.

*UPDATE: Google and Softcard have completed an agreement that will leverage the best technology from both companies to create a more robust mobile wallet for consumers. The mobile payment system will keep the Google Wallet name. Read more here.
