Before you all start syaing how many phones Samsung sold, well the Spice Gorls sold loads, does not mean there were not better bands/groups around. Bet you would agree that iPhone is not as good as S3 but it still outsold S3!

Gimmicks more like and not particularly innovative. Floating touch or whatever was on the Xperia Sola for chrissakes....so 12 months ago. Sony ought to sue their ass!

US-variants smartphones is a complete bullshit marketing model. Stop taking subsidised phone your carrier like, just pay your plan and buy whatever smartphone you want on the web, just like in Europe !

Blinkfeed? yea, there is flipboard
Zoe?

Samsung wins on features, even if you think they're gimick or not.

Air view without the spen is impressive
Smart scroll/smart stay - can't wait to try it
Control the phone without touching it, (air gesture)
Countless other features, screen share, dual camera, which takes 100 photos in 4 sec


All these plus mircosd+bigger removable battery add up to make it a complete package.

Plus, the quality is pointless if you put a plastic case on it.

98% of the time you stare at the screen not look how the phone is.

But if that's important to you, go ahead. That's why there are choices, unless you're apple.

I love that small bezzel. Design wise, it gives you the most screen realestate for your buck. Lol at xperia,, those software buttons don't help either

When will htc learn,
availability and marketing is the key.

Not that htc one is a bad phone, but taking everything into consideration, besides design, the One has nothing on galaxy s4.

Good luck HTC, you will need it.

Forget about Droid DNA being obsolete. My HTC One, before it has even released to the public, has been rendered obsolete by Samsung S4! I hate you Samsung!

> In reply to SuperAmoled @ 2013-03-17 20:08 from g5ix - click to readMaybe you've missed the news that Galaxy S4 doesn't feature an octa-core processor, but two quad-core CPUs. And that those CAN'T work simultaneously. The phone either uses the quad-core Cortex-A7 for lighter tasks OR the quad-core Cortex-A15 for heavier applications.

So basically the international Galaxy S4 is powerful as the Xperia Z or the Padfone 2. And the S4 is less capable than HTC One, Optimus G Pro and the Padfone Infinity. On the other hand, the Galaxy S4 for the USA and CA which is based on the Snapdragon 600 is AS powerful as those three phones I've just mentioned (One, G Pro, Infinity).

Educate yourself first. Otherwise you are just another victim of the "octa-core" marketing trick.

Makes sense, there are very few places on the One where Verizon can slap their brand on it. The DNA has plenty of places for Verizon to brand it.
