IggyB, 05 May 2013There is a lot of conflicting information on these two phones and surely this points to the fa... moreYou have no idea what you're talking about. AMOLED is OLED. It's pretty much the tech that got rid of LCD's flaws, that will entirely replace LCD in a couple of years..
SLCD was invented by Samsung/Sony joint venture. Samsung could use them (and does on their other devices) if they chose to. However AMOLED is one of the main reasons why people buy the Galaxy S series in the first place, from the very first Galaxy S phone. Because it just looks so much better than any LCD.
S4 looks awesome it has the best looks, design and feel, the plastic from which is made from looks more awesome and premium than the aluminum cover that HTC ONE has.
I actually find HTC ONE aluminum body and design to be very ugly it's like an aluminum beer can that just waits to be smashed.
Dude you just smashed my smartphone sorry I thought it was a beer can. ROTFL :))))))))))

It's a gadget site. Here you can see tests, clearly. You can see the camera samples by yourself, benchmark numbers, battery life numbers etc. Sorry, but if there are accurate phone tests on the internet, they are here.
You can see the test results by yourself without even reading conclusions, they are just obvious, man. The S4 is a better phone, the One looks slightly nicer for now, though it's bigger and heavier because of this.
QuadFace, 12 May 2013I am so so confused after reading this comparison because of what i saw from sites like whathi... moredont believe those sites.
htc is paying extra in marketing,
and fake reviews is also marketing,
s4 its better is almost everything for design
but it makes up in having removable battery and sd slot, and its not ugly by any means
Bascially, GS4 offers tons more features and is made better. Aluminum? thats what soda cans are made of..
Oh Look, another HTC fanboy. Why would anyone support a compromised product I don't know. Enjoy your HTC nONE
GS4 Airtouch vs HTC n'one
GS4 Thermometer vs HTC n'one
GS4 Pedometer vs HTC n'one
GS4 Humidity Sensor vs HTC n'one
GS4 SD CARD Support vs HTC n'one
GS4 removbatts vs HTC n'one
This is just the tip of the iceberg. So many practical features in Touchwiz.
THE HTC n''ONE!!!
I am so so confused after reading this comparison because of what i saw from sites like whathifi.com and engadget.com is like they have a different HTC One, i used Galaxy S3 and later switch to HTC One X and now i am thinking of One or S4, i see that is only GSMArena.com has rated the One so bad, i think i will like to trust someone else from now, i hate to see a biased reviews like these.
This time s4 is a big looser..one is greatest hits since now...its perfect on every Aspect..
S4 bye bye..maybe next year maybe.
i did compare both the phones by myself, keeping them side by side n surprized to see no major difference between them... i like superamoled screen on S4 n looks of htc one... performance wise both are better than xperia z n these two are real fighters of 2013... for the first time i like a phone by htc... before thz i never liked htc... on the other hand samsung rock as always and everytime it had no one to compete hard but thz time htc has got that edge... thanks to htc one, really impressive...
tree, 12 May 2013Nothing new with samsung, just as expected. They add a new screen and a load of bloatware and ... moreWhy are you worried what other people are buying? I chose a galaxy s4 because I know Samsung keep there phones updated. Look at the s2 it has been updated to jelly bean. While my SE arc s got 2 updates in the two years I owned it and they weren't even going to give us ice cream sandwich! It was only because so many people kicked up a fuss that they released it and boy was it buggie. So yeah give me a power house plastics phone with good support for many years.
S4 definetly have better sound quality! High volume is not the same as good sound quality, but good stereo crosstalk is extremly important for the sound quality, too bad = almost mono = music sounds "dead"! I never ever listen to music using the phone speakers, everyone use headphones to listen to music on the phone!
Nothing new with samsung, just as expected. They add a new screen and a load of bloatware and present it as a groundbreaking new product. Pff, galaxy series is only for the masses, for the grey mainstream. So what are you waiting for, go and buy the plastic gs4 to be a part of the maistream. Haha, funny to see that half of the people are holding iphones, the other half galaxy flagships. World is getting boring..
Anonymous, 09 May 2013The S4 is everything that HTC have been dreaming to make. This might be a little long so I'd g... moreYou said it!!!! some ppl are just in denial and stubborn and childish. I'll stick with the best whichever brand, and currently it is Samsung. I'm not against HTC or Sony, i don't hate for no reason like Samsung haters. The only advantage to the One is that is it slighty more solid, SLIGHTLY... the S4 is better than the S3 in build quailty and still maintains removable battery and SD slot... S4 beats One in almost every other category as you said... Sorry HTC, maybe next time...
none123, 21 Apr 2013standby drainage on the HTC One is a milion times better than that of the S4 ask any reviewer.Standby drainage? You should check your facts right buddy. From S3 onwards, the standby time has been the best among most android phones till today. Please refer to GSMarena's comparison or any other reviews out there. :)

Ismail Hakim, 06 May 2013The body of GS4 is not made from plastic. But made from POLYCARBONATE. And just what is Polycarbonate - it's a thermoPLASTIC polymer. Using the word Polycarbonate may sound better than plastic but means nothing. It's plastic, and just because it happens to be a high quality, more durable type of plastic - doesn't make it anything but PLASTIC.
