BadassNoor, 02 Jan 2014How is the current design crap? It is thin, almost bezel-less, and ergonomic. Isn't that good?... moreThe plastic design as it is now works fine for plastic but not for metal. Ihe render and most of what's leaked on the net suggest they took the exact same design and made a metal version, that is hideous. You only go with Metal to make it more stylized. There is no style to the current design it's bland but it works fine for plastic. Plastic is more manageable then metal especially when you drop the phone. I prefer plastic.
That finish actually looks nice! Much more attractive than the cheap looking iPhone 5s.

What you did there was reiterate an already obvious point in order to make a non factual one. As I stated the One though not very saturated is. Particularly in green. As well as it has a slightly off way or dealing with bright and dark contrast. Did not say it was not a good LCD.
As far as white in Amoled it is not greyish. As well as in Movie Mode it reaches one of the best white balance scores possible hitting a more natural white tone. Even when in it's standard saturation it's white is not that off and way way way more accurate than lcd black.
As well as again actually being slightly more evenly calibrated. And again. Lcd is fake by standard by not being 100% perfect colors, fake black, washy contrast, and off set white balance. Amoled you know what you are getting. And most people in the real world love the way it looks. Its 99%online jealous trolling haters that complain. And when in Movie mode has natural colors, infinite contrast, true deep blacks, more proper white balance, and is overall the most natural screen you can get. Way more than an LCD with just a few percent more accurate colors may ever be able to produce. And soon enough the color level will be able to at least match the same as LCD while already not being more than a few percent off.
And Amoled is a lot less reflectively generally because of one less layer covering it and the saturated colors and wide contrast. Lcd's have to usually be a lot brighter to match it. And the s4 reaches apx 470-490cdm in auto brightness while the Note 3 reaches 660cdm in auto brightness. The note 3 is one of the best displays under the sun. The S4 even does better than a lot. And as overall screens those are the best two and overall most natural mobile displays in existence. Fact. Also as a superior a newer technology it still costs a little more to produce.
You making up crap out of jealousy and fanboyism is not facts and reviews.
The simple true fact is that Amoled screens are demolishing LCD at an immense rate and jealoys fanboys online cannot handle that. Why don't you read some of those reviews like the one between the S4,one, and i5 on gsmarena blog or the displaymate review of the note3 screen before lying and running your mouth??
Htc favored battery life? That's why they put a smaller non removable battery in a fatter package with a smaller screen and no sd slot? One that even professional repair techs have to pry open and usually damage. And that's while using a lithium polymer battery too. Which can hold higher capacities in smaller sizes and different shapes.... but they favored battery?
That's why even clocked higher the S4 had better standby time and all around better battery life and you can just swap out the battery.... That is what you call choosing battery life????
And that 0.2GHz can make a difference. As well as it was not just clocking the cpu 0.2GHz higher. The overall bus speed of the system is higher. Cpu, gpu, and ram. Definitely makes a difference.
Lag free?? Lmfao. You really are a jealous fanboy. There is no such thing as a lag free, hiccup free technology, phone, os, ui in reality. Nor is touchwiz bad like all the jealous haters troll so hard to try and make people believe. And now you think the One is smoother than Note 3??? Oh right. I forgot personally made jealous fanboy stuff.
Ugly, clutter, and bloat? Its just as clean as any other. Its organized to a t, and any software on a phone other than straight system settings is bloat to someone. The difference is touchwiz is the most organized feature rich ui that does the most and caters to as many different people as possible. You can moan all you want in spite and jealousy, but luckily for the people that actually like and use features and innovations Samsung delivers.
The way it looks is all up to preference. I don't care for sense that much. I don't run over to HTC pages and whine about it.
Again. Two speakers. Hello. What does that equal? Fuller sound. Aduh! That does not mean that the speakers themselves are astounding compared to others. So because you know jealous made up lies and I know facts means I never heard them? And I have an Omnia HD from May 2009 which has speakers that sound great. And the One does not have a dedicated separate chip just for the speakers. What a foolish thing to say. The s4 has a superior audio chip. One has beats which is not that amazing and is an equalizer. And on a side note as headphones are the biggest scam to ever hit. The speakers of the s4 and Note 3 are very good and slightly louder, but obviously lack depth compared to having two speakers. Again does not mean that each individual speaker is the best thing ever. And as far as headphone output the Galaxies have cleaner sound. The One just gets a little louder. So again keep crying. I never said the One's speakers were bad or that they didn't sound a lot better. They could however get louder considering there is two and it's only reaching the same or slightly lower volume levels as others.
So you can cry, whine, complain, lie, twist, exaggerate, stretch, deny, wish all you want. It does not change the facts.
And pay $50 for premium? So more expensive internals, more features, functions, and advantages, gorrila glass 3 vs gorrila glass 2, and high grade premium Poly Carbonate plastic which offers many advantages in durability/practicality, heat, signal, and generally battery-sd slot. And $50 cheaper is not premium, but the other lacking in all that and costing equal or more is??? I feel sorry for you.
Now I'm being cocky? So because you trolled over to a Samsung page to boast on how you feel the One is superior and lie with fanboy jealousy crap... which is the same over exaggerated bs everyone says and you just read from another user... and I called you out... and then you got upset and exhaustively lied so I now had to school you means Im just being cocky????? Lets try reality. You had a superiority complex and trolled a page and now i called you out and schooled you with fact.
Yes the One is a great device indeed and many things come down to preference. However as an overall package the S4 takes a huge lead in advantages. Even more so than the G2 and the N5.G2 over S4 is mainly chip. N5 is just chip and updates. Plus s4 has water proof and also an S800 version. And also as well has a metal version.
That's just reality
