US, Canada and Sweden getting Snapdragon 600 based Galaxy S4  - read the full textThe Samsung I9500 Galaxy S4 is the first smartphone with an octa-core processor or at least in some regions.

Why release a new phone if you're going to cripple it to market? Apple wouldn't do this!

Sorry, but the HTC One is the better option here. Samsung can put as many new features in as they like, but if the average user tries them once and shows friends before actually never using them again then what's the point?
Innovation isn't always actually useful.
The HTC Might have no USB OTG or removable battery but these are not essential. The cloud now covers extra storage and 32gb is the new standard.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Qi wireless charging accessories will soon be available, but as yet, know one knows the likely price - I can't imagine it being too expensive though.

You need to compare Samsung's Octa chipset with the soon to arrive snapdragon 800 chip not the 600 then you will see that the snapdragon 800 will absolutely destroy Samsung's chip and also the adreno 330 gpu will easily thrash the gpu inside the iphone5.

Forget about HTC one x now htc is different, even though the 4MP camera better than 13MP on S4 check the reviews by your self if you don't believe.

Not going to start with the lack off feature on Htc one vs S4. Even S3 has more feature than Htc one. S2 and note 1 will have more feature than Htc one with with the incoming update. It's a clear win for S4

Samsung you did it again.

GS4 is definitely the better phone. check this site.
GS4 SN600 1.9GHz. / HTC one SN600 1.7GHz
no more HTC phone to me. read too many build quality (NOT just materials) complaints about the One X, such as the protruding camera being easily scratched and the lens glass cracked, screen glass separating from the sides of the plastic when the phone heats up (bad glue?), creaking around the top which I confirmed on a store model.
