As for getting 4.2.1 outta the box, good luck with that! Is still as buggy as hell,KLP will be the game changer on Moto X...

So if your brain only computes differences in specs and design and biuld mean nothing here's a few:
HTC One's market leading LCD panel has a ppi of 468,compared to the pentile amoled of the S4 of 441.
Sound for media,calls and reception is second to none on the HTC One.I happen to think call quality is pretty damn important when buy a phone!

Firstly, the HTC One SOC is running the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 at 1.7ghz, not 1.5 quad on the Xperia Z. Octocore is just marketing speak.At no point will all eight cores be running on your S4.The maximum you're gonna get is 4 cores running at 1.8ghz on your cheap plastic crap. If you were actually objective and knew any knowledge of tech,jellybean has sorted flagship phones and there is little difference.There is no app or game that is too powerful for either the Xperia Z,HTC One or S4.We've hit a technological plateau in this respect.Only design and ui and software features can show differences. I've owned every Galazy S series phone but they don't deserve my attention this year,HTC does...The dumb masses will get sucked in by the marketing and buy the SGS4 but tech-heads will go the cooler option and go with the little guy...

Hmmm,let me see...£489 for the beautifully designed and built and full of innovation HTC One 32gig or £529 for a spec bumped cheap plastic S3 with 16gig onboard...Goodbye Samung,this 3 year love affair is over...

I don't see any reason as to why it shouldn't work here with a UK sim-card in it, but don't just take my word for it - ask around for other opinions.

If bought in the usa will the phone then work in the UK by just simply putting a UK sim into it?

Cashing in my 7,000 points will enable me to buy the Galaxy S4 - for just under £400 great saving on original price.
