    What are the three dots on the side for?
    They're pogo pins. You use them to connect the official battery case — a kind of flip case where the front is actually a 1200mAh battery.

    Are there any phablet software features similar to the Note 3? Things like multi-window and the pen window are amazing. If not, is the One Maxx just really a larger One with slight additions to Blink Feed and nothing to take advantage of that huge screen?

    Dimensions:

    162.5 x 82.5 x 10.29mm vs 137.4 x 68.3 x 9.3mm (43% increase in area and 58% increase in volume)

    217g vs 143g (52% increase in mass)

    DPI 373 vs 468 ppi

    44% increase in battery size (MAh)

    There's a new note-taking app called Scribble. Nothing like multi-window or pen window.

    I'll wait for the review for this, but are we underestimating the power of the Max?

    Depends what you mean by power. As it's basically an HTC One on the inside, its power is already a known quantity.

    Considering it's a much bigger screen and needs to push a lot more pixels, is it possible that it will be slightly slower than the One though?

    They're identical on pixel count.

    Any idea on Sense 5.5 / Android 4.3 on 'regular' HTC Ones ?

    Same resolution as the One — 1080p. And I've got both the One and the Max here, side by side — performance is pretty much identical.

    Officially, "in the coming months."

    Unofficially, I've heard November.

    I would like to know if the notification light for htc one is still not customizable or have they changed that with one max? Also, is the light still hidden behind a grill like it was for the One? Thanks

    Same as the HTC One, behind the speaker grille. Can't see any way to customize it.

    Which display looks better, this or the Note 3?

    Very tough to say. The Note 3 is more vivid, whereas I think the Max looks a bit more realistic. It's more a case of differences than better/worse.

    Is the battery able to be swapped or is it permanently fixed? The removable back plate allows access to the microSim and microSD card slots - or is there a slot on the side of the phone?

    Battery is embedded so it cannot be easily swapped.

    How does the display look when compared to the One? Can pogo pins be used for wireless charging?

    Any word on US gsm/lte compatability? I saw the spec break down, but I'm still a little confused exactly what networks/bands it supports.

    That's an easy one. Htc loves to shoot themselves in the foot. Smh. Real-world will you notice a difference? No. But specs on paper matter, psychologically especially.

    How's the battery life? I mean, it'l obvious be pretty good, but how's it in comparison to say, the note 3?

    So does this mean no LTE support for AT&T or T-Mobile? Kinda disappointing when Apple releases the Verizon iPhone 5S that works on every US carrier's LTE.

    Lower r&d costs developing a new kernel, using a known quantity, cost savings on the bom, optimizing diminishing returns (its good enough theory)... Its definitely a strange call to make, but the explanation that makes the most sense to me is if they're trying to reduce costs due to their profitably issues and if their mindset was of a really big HTC One rather than a note competitor.
