Love the conclusive paragraph of the shootout.
Last year I fell in love with the One X but I ended up buying the s3 after reading so many tech reviews. Regretted it and switched to the One X because it just didn't feel right. I didn't have the phone that I really wanted.
This year I'll be getting the One. Not because of what people say about it, its because its the phone that I want.
I suggest you do the same people, get the phone that you want and stop bitching against the other choice that you didn't make. Or can't make, if you're that unfortunate.
I see the Camera Comparison trashed ONE in almost all conditions. Only your comparison says that Galaxy S4 camera is better. Sorry, i will ignore you and take the rest team as majority is far good.
rich72, 10 Apr 2013I luv the HTC's but the one is a lemon, can't take down blink feed the gallery is now organize... moreDisable sync if you have data disabled. If it isn't better sign off then again sign in again or reset your phone. Otherwise you have a faulty unit or your being dishonest. I have no problems with the phone and it's battery life and I'm coming from a Note2. :)
I luv the HTC's but the one is a lemon, can't take down blink feed the gallery is now organized badly and the last two weeks has seen my battery drain in 6 hours, I have found out my email is constantly stuck on updating so it will never stop updating both my email accounts which means a hot phone and no battery, once I delete the accounts it's fine butthen it takes about 3 days and itsit's back again, time to join the Samsung revolution me thinks no wonder there losing money......
First thing that comes to impress is the shape. Htc is far better in looks than galaxyS4. It gives a manly look, the speakers and music are awesome. Camera is good, we are not professional photographers, don't need that minor detail in daily photography. Go for Htc.
Just a point on the missing menu button on the HTC One: my understanding is that this is due to Google's Android design documentation saying to remove the menu button, HTC are adapting to android design documentation before most app devs and other hardware providers. Someone's gotta do it I guess. Whether its good for you or bad is personal preference I guess, but I did wanna point out that its not htcs design but Googles. :)
I heard the HTC one has a really bad fault with the volume down button on the phones for you versions. Samung S4 all the way, it looks miles more expensive with the plastic finish.
As a HTC fan this review is dissapointing. Nice looking, thats the only big win! God awful camera which sometimes manages to compare to 2010 flagships. Havent advanced on the camera. Stepped backwards 3 years. This is dissapointing. No really big wins at all in any department, yet the s4 did have. Lost me HTC. No wonder profits slid 98% year on year. R.I.P HTC
Regarding my previous comment "(B) HTC ONE - Full metal body: Failed!", I just noticed that those images are hotlink protected by the website.

This video proof that the button is not made of metal: https://www.youtube.com/v/dUk_zOyyKY4
Addition to "(A) HTC ONE - Zero gap construction: Failed!". HTC ONE casing is consist of a "U" shape body and a "-" top cover. Two parts are joined together. It is not an "O" shape casing as some thoughts. Zero gap construction claims is misleading (marketing trick to make you think it is perfect). After using for sometimes, gap will appear.
graider, 08 Apr 2013i read and don't see where they said the htc one is slower taking picture than the s3. the htc... moreI think you are the one who is smoking. :)
Read the 1st paragraph of the quotes: "It still lose to Samsung S3 in terms of the shuttle speed."
Just to share my findings
(A) HTC ONE - Zero gap construction: Failed!
* See those gaps in the pictures. It is published in China news.
(B) HTC ONE - Full metal body: Failed!
* The volume control button is made of electroplating plastic. Not full metal as advertised (Consider marketing gimmick?). The worse part was some user complaints that the paint peeled off.

Initially, HTC fan were aggresively protecting their brand with all kind of words like: Samsung conspiracy, the user band the cover themselve etc. All this was settled down after both issues received the official response from HTC. So these are the true and confirmed cases.
Joey8, 02 Apr 2013You are wrong regarding S4 speed of taking photo. HTC One is slower than S3, so it is no way n... morei read and don't see where they said the htc one is slower taking picture than the s3. the htc one can record full hd video and full hd picture at the same time. as far as i know, this is super fast and the only phone that can do this currently. what are you smoking?
Chebulla, 08 Apr 2013Mhm... Sure. You believe everything the media tell you?
I'm saying you go out and compare ... moreBelieving the media is much better than believing "Chebulla said" right?
When you state or point out something, you need to have supporting facts to back you up. Instead of Chebulla like it, so this is the truth. If you are someone authority, expert and well-known in this area like gsmarena.com, yeah you can. But are you?
Joseph Gomes, 08 Apr 2013Go through the review before posting fake information. If you don't trust gsmarena stop commen... moreMhm... Sure. You believe everything the media tell you?
I'm saying you go out and compare the two phones hand in hand, side by side and you'll see for yourself what I'm talking about. In the end the beauty is in the eye of the beholder and my subjective view is that HTC One takes better stills and video then S4. Simple.
Only thing I like about the HTC One compared to Samsung Galaxy S4 is the look.
Hey anyone got any news about the Galaxy S4 videocamera ? will they be updating the poor field of view ?

You are commenting on gsmarena without reading the review. HTC has much worse camera, ultrapixel is a big fail. HTC has no customer care office in my country, samsung have them in every city. HTC has worse hardware according to benchmark. And super lcd is again worse than amoled according to this website. Please read the review before you copy others post and troll. HTC lost by big margin once again
