you guys are just jealous. comparing this phone to your favorite phones won't work. each phones has it's own unique best-selling functions, regardless if your comparing the camera or the brand. hell cares?!

the question is, can you afford to buy this phone, together with the other hairy phones you'd most like to compare with? think again? you can't just simple afford to buy each of them in a single pocket.

Many people still think higher camera pixels = quality. You are the reason why manufacturers put higher pixel count on camera every year.

Ps any important data should always be in dropbox or sugarsync but Samsung's come with 50gb dropbox anyway.

HTC One and iPhone 5 are exactly same type. A spoiled bad girl in a beautiful dress. But at least HTC One has better up-to-day specs than a boring outdated iPhone 5 specs.

SD card are more vulnerable to damage. It may even stop working by swapping from one phone to other. Open your eyes.!

I will be getting the S4 but I have to admit that the HTC One is a gorgeous phone, way prettier than the S4. If the S4 didn't exist I would get the HTC One for sure.

I can't wait to own this magnificent phone. The Epic screen, the premium build, the amazing camera, the minimalist feel of the new Sense 5 & the refined looks wins me over.

I dont know about android but iOS backup your device usually at night when device is in charger, so the backup part happening when you dont use your device, very handy right? ;)

The HTC One has different features than the GS4: true-life color screen, Sense UI, aluminium body etc. You can critizise them for taking inspiration from Windows Phone (although I disagree) but that proved to be a great strategy when the first Galaxy S looked like an iPhone.
The aluminium body is about personal preferences but it also seems to receive very good feedback.

That is MUCH MUCH better than external memory, because if you lose your phone, so it your external memory... and that's no the case with Dropbox.
