On SGS3 you can see pixels from time to time because of the pentile matrix. High-end phone? Allmighty reviewers said "on such screen with 326ppi you can't realy notice that", and here I am - noticing them all the time when some object or part of it is 1px thick. Never-ever again pentile matrix, not even on 1000ppi. Not to mention low quality plastics. SGS4 is practicaly the same phone, so there's a chance for HTC to catch up with HTC One.
Picture quality don't depend on size and megapixels, but on lense size, aperture etc, so I will always choose quality of One's camera over size.

I dont know whether HTC has made easy for s4 or not but u certainly made yourself at ease by deciding upon such stupid factors regarding what is good and what is bad
'm sorry but where's the xperial ZL? It's absence is notable from the conclusion page.
Even though it lacks Z's water resistance and premium looks it is the high end part of the two. Much smaller bezels, better screen, slightly better battery, IR blaster, snapper button.... In short ts better in all the things that matter (plus cheaper too) than Z so I cannot account for it's absence from your review comparisons...
the review is pretty much what I expect from the phone.. :-) still torn between HTC One and S4 though..
Anonymous, 23 Mar 2013iPhone had the best design until this One turned up!!Nope, Nokia N9 is still the best looking phone ever. Everything else just looks run of the mill phones....

You can barely see the differences from 300 PPI to 326 PPI by just having the screen in front of your nose.
And also, 5 inches are better than 4.7 inches for the viewing experience.

Whatever, the camera of htc one isnt better than SGS4. And the display tech of sony Z is so cheap and ugly. You should check out the HD Super AMOLED packing SGS4, you simply wont notice any difference btween htc one and sgs4's screen with your eye
Wow I aree with you, I don't always go by reviews, so I tried it for myself, the phone is amazing.
The are some htc haters, your missing out. . . Big time !!

Have you ever asked yourself this question, why do I read about a phone test on one website and when I read another, different results.
Try it for yourself!!

It's the best camera phone on the market, with the sharpest screen. Even the Galaxy S4 won't have a screen as sharp as this, it's only 441 pip. The htc One is 468 pip and and it's noticeable, I have compared it to the Sony Z.
The One won hands down
Anonymous, 23 Mar 2013Hi, don't you know there's a new invention called portable battery pack/charger? Is it easie... moreI recommend everyone get a portable battery charger. You can run USB lights, speakers etc off them and extend your phone or tablet for several days. Many are a rip off though - look out on ebay etc plus Aldi do 7400 mah ones every year for $30 or $40. I've got two that I take camping and hiking plus they're great on long flights, both commercial and private. Try to get ones over 7000mah - that means you'll get 3 or more full phone charges.
Anonymous, 23 Mar 2013Some of the comments on here make me laugh. Don't take so personal, its only a phone.
Then ... moreTell that to the photo compare tool. And tell it to the continued low sales of HTC, with no card slot and low megapixel cam that gets beaten hard by budget phones from Sony and Samsung (in normal light) they pretty much nailed it if being pathetic was the goal.
HTC is making it too easy for Galaxy S4. Even Xperia Z, it stays stable at more than 2x the daily interest of One, the One made it to half the interest for the first time yesterday and is now dropping off again, at the same time as Xperia Z is gaining again. I wouldnt call that an overwhelming interest for One, or any other 3mpix phone out there for that matter.
Anonymous, 23 Mar 2013For me it's between the One and the X phone. First phone was HTC Hero, then had a Desire, ... moreYeah I had a Desire as my intro to smart phones and it was a revelation. It died of restart-itis after 15 months and like you, I went to an S2. I'm now on an S3 but I would definitely consider another HTC, both as a merit-based choice and also to offset the monolith that Samsung is becoming :-) It's great to see HTC is kicking goals again.
