Confirmed: HTC One not coming to Verizon in the USA - read the full textHTC USA has confirmed via its official Twitter account that HTC One won't be available on Verizon's networks. It also suggests to check the HTC DROID DNA instead, if you are into...


Sort by:

The honest truth about the HTC one and the S4 is from here on in its just a meter of preference. For example we cant sit her and argue that 0.3" on the display makes huge deference. The OS on the HTC can be upgraded easily. RAM both have the same. Some features that the 2 phones have can and will be available for download as third party apps in the future.So we are basically comparing apples and apples.

However when it comes CPU's the Samsung is way ahead in the game. But the question is when most average people by a phone do they look at the processor speed, the answer is "NO". People buy what their friends are using. As much as any one can say marketing has not played a major part in its success will be just in denial. If anyone knows the power of subliminal you catch the drift. Samsungs marketing strategy was never based on a single product however it has been a journey of different products.

As much as I respect Samsung I prefer the HTC when it comes to phones even though I have other samsung gagdets in my house.

I'm not brand loyal to anyone specific since moving away from Nokia over recent years but after all said and done, size, convenience, diagnostics and build quality. I am looking forward to buying the HTC One. Its fair to say it looks like a job overall well done.

And what abt the exploit. Do you have an answer for that or rather those 40 million people. This is the reason I wrote that a normal doesnt even care abt those in-depth details as just follow the hyped name in the

So it would be better you grow up and look around.
For your kind info U.S alone is a very huge market and studies or surveys conducted can serve as the basis to judge and evaluate the outcomes. U didnt had any answer to links so as to defend yourself doesn't mean that u start talking irrelevant things

Oh crappy those 40 million people...90% of them don't even know that their device has smart stay or POP up play...guess what they are still using ics coz they don't even care abt OS.
What they care abt is that get a device what they HAVE listened more or blah that comes through marketing at which Samsung is genius

If u know previous S3 is a big hit so don't think that 40 million peoples are fool & just falling into Samsung marketing.

HTC is not into marketing coz they don't want to waste there money coz they know even if they marketing better then Samsung still they can't fight with Samsung.

If Microsoft starts marketing W8 like Samsung still its not going to work so u r not the only brilliant here who knows everything about marketing.

> In reply to [deleted post]If u are so much keen to count the pages of comments well u must then check the ratings
In any case I don't value both the things
And I didn't knew that u Samsung fans are such big losers and obsessed that u buy and conclude opinion regarding a phone on such popularity basis
Guess what I already wrote in my previous comment that u are into a marketing trap. U are one them who declared by yourself

170 odd pages of reviews and comments regarding the sumsung Galaxy S4, and only 44 pages of reviews and comments regarding the HTC one
Just by comparing these two figures I know which is more popular 'sadly though: it isn't the HTC one.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is the clear winner by a mile"
