That's like saying you prefer to take a very sexy woman over a woman that fits you well when it's about personality.
You can also say that a woman have some really nice b**bies (hardware). They feel good in the hand and they looks nice to :-D, but it wont work very well if you are only gonna concentrate about them instead of the womans personality (software).

No matter how you want it to be, the lighter an object is, the lesser damage it's going to take when it hits the floor / ground.
That's my point.
Oh also, for those who say the HTC One camera is getting so much better by this new firmware. You forget to take into consideration that Samsung also can release a new firmware that will make the camera even better than it's now.
I'm not interested in a quad core Samsung S4. Give me the 8 core version LTE version.

Having said that, my first reaction seeing the back of SGS IV is UGLY..! Looks really cheap, not because of plastic, but the design.
If you compare with classy white stripes circling ONE camera, you know what I'm talking.
SGS IV is magnificently cramped big screen in 'small body' and one particular feature I like is ablity to remove object from the photo taken, that would be handy.. And I guess many more features compared to ONE.
But if you more to premium build with gorgeous design (let's be honest even glassy Sony XZ is below ONE design), you'll get ONE.
Many people who has touched and playing around with it for few minutes testified how great it is. Convincing me enough to get this beauty masterpiece when released.
Anonymous, 27 Mar 2013Err, no. I'm an iPhone 5 user and I'm not interested in anything that's bigger than 4 inches. Just like iPhone users weren't interested anything that had more than a 3.5" screen before the iPhone 5.

My friend dropped his SGS3 and have to repair it at Samsung Center. Tom is trying hard to convince so many people here that SGS4 is a way better than HTC One, perhaps because he got a fantastic experiences with his Galaxy, but I cant see his true intention by doing that so persistent...

Why do I hate from samsung..
cus my friend had s2 last year and it dropped of the table which its not more than 1mt higher and its screen have brocken and he must left it cus it fix cost was tooo much..
I remember sinse I've gotten sensation xe and it dropped of my hand more than 10 per and since now it doent any brocken in body or screen..just it take a little scratch ..
I don't want to risk and change my trust to htc quality again sami product with weak body and boring design..
Htc always is best specially one.
Anonymous, 27 Mar 2013Err, no. I'm an iPhone 5 user and I'm not interested in anything that's bigger than 4 inches. Atleast until Apple start making iPhones with bigger screens?
I still think many iPhone 5 users will change to the black HTC One! The only problem is the HTC One camera because 4 MP is still only 4 MP even if they are called "ultra pixels"!

Im for the samsung cause ive been pleased with the s3. the one looks serious. I wish I had the one build material with the s everything else with the water durability of that sony phone... perfect mishmash...
Great review. The S4 might be overall better but I will get the one for it's design. I own a galaxy S and I don't think plastic is a big let down since I have dropped mine over 20 times and it's still in good shape (never used a case). From the review even though the S4 won many aspects it was only by small margins except for the camera which I don't use that much and 64 GB is more than enough for me.
My only concerns are the non-removable battery and Htc sense is not as effective and feature rich like touch-wiz.
