chocolaking, 25 May 2013You are making false statement here. If you think htc is lying. then you should know that ... more Or maybe you've been paid, or worse, indoctrinated by HTC to say that they are perfectly honest and Samsung is that evil. No company is pure at heart, they sometimes do something shady to save themselves. You've probably been taken in by the One's good looks. I would never have thought that an aluminium unibody is that good a hypnotising tool.

ISJ5, 24 May 2013as far as i know they shipped 10 million galaxy S4 within two weeks after they announced it. ... moreShipping volume doesn't mean S4 is the best. You are talking about Samsung SHIPPED 10 million phones, but it doesn't mean all of them were sold but here HTC claims they sold 5 million phones SOLD is better than SHIPPED.

Bad marketing is again killing HTC. My parents had a very hard time getting a single HTC One in USA. At last they got one the white version. I saw the galaxy s 4. It felt cheaper than the S3. I would never but a phone that feels so cheap. No matter how many software features they offer me.
HTC already commented that the numbers weren't official. "That number comes from the same unnamed source that is referenced throughout the WSJ article. Unfortunately, that isn't an official figure"
Let's wait and see.
rocker90, 23 May 2013ive tested the camera of both s4 and one.on day light condition s4 performs better but one ren... moreThe One's camera produced pictures with colors that are off, purple fringing, noise and low detail. Also (as per the review) the S4 did beat it in low-light conditions, albeit not on every picture. The HTC One has a bad camera period.
optimus, 23 May 2013i have nothing against htc htc one is a great phone but i dont think they should try to compe... moreYou're right. HTC have screwed up badly when they decided to put a bad camera on a flagship. The only thing they can't get away with is a trade-off on a flagship. Samsung only messed up the design, and this is forgivable. So people should stop comparing the two of them.
vivian, 24 May 2013Why is ip5 not a smart phone?Because the iPhone doesn't have multitasking (in the true sense of the word), doesn't have a system-wide file manager, no app integration, only an app store to somewhat supplant the utter lack of functionality of the OS. Nobody should buy a feature phone for hundreds of euros.
Murthy, 24 May 2013No one said anything when S4 reached 10 million mark. Why doubt HTC one hitting 5 million mark... moreBut at least they, you know, actually care about the inside of their phones. They do sth called research to find out if 13MP cameras actually capture details, not just noise (like the HTC One's camera), or if the plastic body can take scratches (which the HTC One cannot take well). Sensibility will succeed, and quantity is good, not just 'quality'.
Murthy, 24 May 2013No one said anything when S4 reached 10 million mark. Why doubt HTC one hitting 5 million mark... moreCheap material then current generation htc but did you care when almost all flagship were built on same material before one and z? But If you go through software and hardware which matters 90% on overall life of the phone I bet they can't come close to same level as Samsung...
nogetch, 24 May 2013The 5 million smart phones are with the existing supply issues !!!

No one said anything when S4 reached 10 million mark. Why doubt HTC one hitting 5 million mark? HTC phones are far superior than Samsung. Samsung uses the cheapest material possible to build their S-series.

Its the fastest selling device from htc !!!
At the same time, Samsung has only shipped 10 million to carriers (SHIPPED doesnt mean SOLD)!!!!
