Does anyone know if the HTC One or the Samsung S4 supports Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). It is a subset of Bluetooth 4.0.

Agree with almost everything about this comparison.
However, I don't think there's much of a difference in performance. And so, I'd still choose XZ for it's flawless premium design and it's simplistic UI. Everything in XZ, from the build quality, to the UI, down to the media apps, looks and feels a lot more premium when compared to S4.

You accuse Samsung Fans to possess a childish behavior but to be honest with you my friend, what you wrote looks so immature. Isn’t there something called “personal preference”?
Osiris, 03 Apr 2013xperia z wins, flawless victoryFatality !!!!
Osiris, 03 Apr 2013xperia z wins, flawless victoryKinda funny that you say this when Samsung Galaxy S IV murders the XPERIA Z in pretty much everything except for the water resistant in this test.
Again, why does the XPERIA Z wins?
Hey GSMArena, I need a full comparison like this between Sony Xperia z VS HTC One.. coz am gonna get one of them, still confused.
[deleted post]Man,you just quoted stuff on the XZ' styling. Nothing much on performance. Nothing to counter my points. Do you even know the difference between looks and performance? That's what I don't deny - XZ good looking on the outside. Performance not so much. S IV's hardware & software just dominated the XZ. It isn't waterproofed, but I'm impressed with the S IV because it's ushering the upcoming Note III with the useful S Pen. Sony isn't offering the set of features I personally need.
Looks over good performance and power - isn't a practical or wise decision. I'd like to spend on a real performing device than only looking the part.
I personally prefer xz than s4
I think i won't be looked cool if i hold s4, but it's different story with xz in my hand :D
i think in all part winner is s4 except design and watterproof ability in z..
z hant enough power to compete with htc one and s4..
im going for one cus a lot of unique features are in it..

There is no point in repeating my main arguments. Samsung fanboys constantly praising their ... moreHere are some of your points against expert reviews:
You quoted, "XZ has one of the best screens and cameras in the market today".
From Tech Radar -"Sadly, we would describe our results as average at best... not the fastest camera to load either... we found a few times that it didn't work due to some unexplained software glitch... Photos tended to look better on the screen before they were actually shot, but then when transferred to a computer screen, they just looked cheap... a lack of sharpness, and even mildly zoomed in, they came out more like something from a budget or mid-range handset." Source - http://techradar.com/reviews/p...ticleContent
You quoted, "the thing about viewing angles is a joke that again only small minded people fall for."
From IB Times - "However, when we put the screen side-by-side with the HTC One, it was clear that the TFT panel used on Sony's screen looks dull and washed-out in comparison. Blacks were nowhere near as deep and contrast was also well below HTC's standard." Source - http://ibtimes.co.uk/sony-xper...-451460.html
You quoted, "The XZ is the best android smartphone till date, this is a fact that unbiased reviewers have constantly confirmed." Uh, yeah... In another universe.
You quoted, "A lot of XZ users are happy". Ok, Here is the direct Sony forum for the XZ users, and they seem to mention numerous problems like weak wifi connection, no direct wifi file transfer, LED notification problems, weak speakers, heating up issues, 64GB micro SD card incompatibility issues, etc. Have a look:
You quoted, "... proud and don't regret a bit waiting for plastic fantastic products, their phones can perfectly do anything the plastic fantastic does". No, most of the S IV's aspects has surpassed the XZ's.
You quoted, "the only difference is that with the XZ you'll just have the uniqueness that samsung fans will only keep dreaming about." Uniqueness with mediocre or defective features? XZ has an undeniable good looking exterior. That's about it.
You quoted, "Anyway, those people will grow up oneday, and will learn to reveal the truth the way it truly is, not the way they want it to look like." I guess some of the readers are enlightened more now which is actually better.
You quoted, "And from a person with plenty of experience in both life and the tech world, I can tell you that if you're aim is quality go Sony, and if you're aim is just hype go plastic fantastic, your call." Well thank you for taking the time to write here.
For people who said amoled is the best no matter what.
Go to Phone arena and search a review for screen comparison between IPhone 5, One, Xz, Lumia 920, S4, and S3.
Sorry, can not post a link here.
Just when we thought that LCD technology doesn't have anything more to offer, innovation has once again come to the rescue, allowing certain manufacturers to produce one of the most amazing screens we've ever seen. After all is said and done, it becomes evident that the quality LCD displays like those of the Apple iPhone 5 and HTC One are unsurpassed when it comes to overall image quality with their sharp, lively and realistic visuals.
However, Samsung is making big moves forward with each new major release. Its AMOLED technology has transformed from cold and pixelized to surprisingly authentic and artifact-free. The Galaxy S4's Super AMOLED screen is an improvement over its predecessor in every possible way, but this comparison showed us that there's still quite a bit of room for improvement.
i'm sure XZ users are way too old to debate about which one the best ...
it's like you debate to your wife whos more beautiful, her or her friend
even i say it's her friend, i'm still with my wife, rite ?
so i'm sure all XZ user probly say, it's S4 better than XZ, but i love XZ.. i choose to buy XZ
doesn't matter if all teenagers says S4 is better with some "flaming" words...
we're too old to debate about that...
or it just me ?

There is no point in repeating my main arguments. Samsung fanboys constantly praising their ... moreC'mon. Each of us has their individual views. You may think Xperia Z design is nice, but I think it is too squarish and shaped like a coffin. To you, it may has the best camera, but the facts are its photos are blurry as compared to S4 as presented in this review. Unless one is shooting in burst mode on the Xperia Z(what?!).
So, we do respect your likes towards Xperia Z, but you can't expect others to think like you. And I do not see what's wrong with plastic if the build is good and no cranking sounds when pressing the buttons. Not everyone like to submerge their phones into water or neither they have the needs to do so. And I think most of us will not want to spent more on buying other accessories like wireless dock for charging the phone just because afraid of wear and tear of the water proof connector covers.
So, there are no best phone imo. Just get and use whichever one likes.
