I had this phone for 2 years, and I was quite happy with it.
The optional sd-slot gives flexibility regarding storage, and the screen was big, bright and easy to read/view in all lighting conditions.
But what amazed me the most was the picture-quality I got from this phone.
Use the phone for business, and for those "hard to reach" areas in computing and electrical surroundings, it was great to have this phone.
Both for closeup pictures, but also for completely dark areas where you had to use the flash, the picture would be crystal-clear and easy to read, even on reflective surfaces.
Too bad the newer phones don't produce these great pictures, because since I had this phone, I've had the HTC One M9, Samsung S6 edge, and currently the SONY Xperia Z5 (not the compact or premium) and this is the one I've stayed with as it is the "closest to same" quality phone and camera that I got from the HTC One Max.
The only drawbacks I found with the phone, at least to start with, was the share size of the thing and also after unluckly dropping it on the floor once, the back cover was a little "bumped" and there was a gap between the housing and the back-cover.
But this has nothing to do with functionality, and you are not supposed to drop the phone, so figure it's not really a drawback.
Also there are quite a lot of neat "ad-ons" you can purchase for it, like a walletcase with built in battery, for added batterylife (slim version giving 1100 mAh extra batterylife) and other functional attachments.
Did not react to weak processing power, as the "bad" review part says, and I used the phone quite extensively with a lot of apps, e-mails, editing video's and pictures and so on...
