Atleast this time Samsung is not wiping the floor with other flagships.
But the two reasons I bought the s4 were
1. No sd card slot one htc
2. It's still not f'n available in my country

Anonymous, 22 Apr 2013Did you even look at the review? It clearly says that the galaxy s4 has a more battery efficie... moreSo. ... use your cellphone always on standby.. the regular user charge their cell everyday/night. HTC one is better in Web and video playback. To make 2 days for moderate use is better, no one use their cell for standby purposes ( more than that day ), maybe you. ;-))
[deleted post]I do agree with you Anandtech it's an expert and geek reviewer. Actually he's the only one mentioned that Super Amoled HD isn't a real HD that making Samsung going crazy.
AnonD-115960, 13 May 2013All the s4 plastic fans must be demanding a plastic car now.Aluminum is heavy and it sucks.Hhahaha actually the plastics going to finish from the planet after couple of years from now cause of Samsung galaxy's phones Lol.
Im happy with my S4 !!!
AnonD-141370, 13 May 2013Given time, the S4, will outsell everything including the kitchen sink.Heating issue
8.8 GB internal memory
I don't think so people are not dump.

It is clear, GSMARENA declares HTC ONE the winner based on their last sentence...
The winner? How about /b the one /b with name on it.
Good read, I'm quite sure both the Galaxy S4 & HTC One will do well within their respective fan base. However, they are both terribly expensive, and do I really need all those extra bells & whistles. HTC One 4mp camera, non replaceable battery and no SD card slot is still a major concern for me. There is a valid reason why I need expandable memory for my business so to my eyes the Galaxy S4 is the better choice I guess but in the end the SONY Xperia Z better suits our business needs at a far cheaper price. So far I'm very pleased with my choice, the Sony Xperia Z does everything I want.

Im not fan of big phones but HTC One wins for design and also +1 for the front stereo speakers..
..for GS4 it wins for slightly larger screen, removable battery and micro sd slot..
I dont care about the camera for both..
I wont buy any of this flagship phone devices because razr i somehow fits all my needs currently.. =)
The only I regret 'bout the Galaxy series are the capacitive button on the bezel. I've always accidentally touch it while on video streaming from the web,
that's why I'm going to get the htc one and give my gnote 2 to my wife. Amoled is cool but bit dimmer vs slcd.
Maybe another year when samsung make their flagship phone with on screen control (like my galaxy nexus), dual stereo speaker, plus fm radio.
Clearly, S4 coming with no significant differences as their older sister S3. I decided to choose XperiaZ.
I still feel the UI is smoother on HTC one, even with the lower specs.. Maybe S4 too much bloatware?
wow, lot of comments here.
if I have to choose, S4 any day.
but I don't mind if someone give me HTC One for free. :)
but currently I'm more interested with Asha 501 & Lumia 520.
so samsung & htc, I'm looking forward for your flagship next year :D
Hardwares comparison : Tie. This is by no means a goalless draw, though - From a pure design standpoint, the HTC One wipes the floor with the Samsung Galaxy S4. The One is the phone to be seen with, it looks more expensive if you will. The Galaxy S4 on the other hand is deliberately underplaying the looks - as if to say that what matters is on the inside.
I don't quite agree. To me Samsung Galaxy S4 design look, feel more elegance and more expensive than HTC One. Not to mentioned S4 was more practical in design.
The One just a very plain metal body with curve back that rocking on many surface, a failure from the design point of view for a cellphone. Furthermore it will look bald when time goes by. Even Apple considered a flat back with curve side only to make their deceivingly thinner but still practical in everyday usage.
From design point of view, a pratical design is more important than just plain metal or what material use. The End!

They make tests, but their reviews are mostly their opinions and preferences as well. They judge phones on how much they liked it. Camera tests are often biased, they don't even have a comparison tool like GSMArena does.

Their reviews look like doctoral thesis. They rated the One higher than the S4 and they have a LOT more tests than GSM. This review is a lot more biased towards Samsung.
