HTC one again lost the king of android title.
better luck next time.
as far as xperia z is concerned...
dealbreaker when compared to galaxy S4:
since most other things are similar so can be considered tie.
s4 wins again....
LOL, 27 Mar 2013It's not worth the upgrade from S3. Better to keep S3 or else jump to something else.. HTC One... morewhy r u complaining abt the changes of s4 from s3??
OHMY!!! u just saw the minor design changes and looks of touchwiz doesnt mean a its a big leap? y dont u have a critical analysis! even d design got some marvelous achievement! aluminum and plastic have the most number of disadvantages than polycarbonate.. do u really want samsung to change touchwiz looks yearly?? even the SuperaMOLED turned into fullHD is being talked abt now bcoz it is the first of its kind and thats how samsung innovate!, and all features of s4 are plus points addl to the last year's amazing features!!!
I mean this review was like compairing a SEDAN with a SUV smart guys will get whos who.
htc one has 4MP ultra pixel camera. good i ll buy one new DSLR camera.
htc one has boom boom speaker well. i ll buy one 7.1 speaker.
htc one has aluminium body.well i ll buy new case cover which will protect my phone.
SGS4 has removal battery. but we cant buy removal battery for htc one.
SGS4 is a faster smartphone. we cant increase our performance in htc one.
SGS4 has lots of features. but htc one doesnt has.
SGS4 has gesture and humidity sensors . htc one doesnt has.
HTC one is a normal smartphone. almost all other phones has it is. but SGS4 has some special features. and its helpful for our daily life. i can spend my money for buy SGS4. not HTC one.
[deleted post]With all that crazy laughing, I know now that you actually are just a lunatic. You didn't even answer my question on the year of your precious htc phone won the smartphone of the year award, yet you talked about sales number when everybody knows that there's not a single android phone out there can out sold even the original Galaxy S, let alone the S II and I won't even mention the S III.
So I think now someone should really take you to a mental institution, for your own good.
All the but hurt htc fans in here. Sorry but s4 has done it again and the exynos version is better then the snapdragon version. Good looks don't take better photos nor make a phone unique. The new air features do. SIV 4 THE WIN
HTC ONE is good but please don't compare it with the S4
Samsung knows how to draw attention for masses see the
screen see the camera and then comment wheather a phone is made of plastic or allumiun no one will drop their phones so their is absolutely no comparison between S4 and the HTC ONE.
[deleted post]The camera on S4 is far better than the camera on HTC One, it does not matter if you upscale or downsize or zoom in, the S4 camera is still always far better, even when taking pictures in the dark!
I do not think cheap "beer can" aluminium looks better than advanced polycarbonate, and the CE.. text on the back of HTC One looks really ugly, and that "beer can" aluminium is far to slippery so it needs a "plastic" case!
The only disadvantage of sgs4 is "cheap plastic". BTW i am buying sgs4. Currently using htc one x.
1) This was not a fair comparision
2)HTC one stands nowhere near the SGS4 in performance and it has low specs than Sgs4 and Htc one is just a pretty looking brick ....
3).GSMA sud have compaired sgs4 with Sony xperia Z.....and that wud have been tough battle.
dkvc, 27 Mar 2013I love how you simply made fun of my comment, but had absolutely no arguments to reply.
And... moreIncrease in PPI does benefit to daily work. A higher PPI allows one to read more text and clearer too especially when zooming into web pages.
On the other hand, phone designs are mainly for showing off. Is like "oh, my phone is made of metal thus more value for money, while yours is made of cheap plastic". No? Do share how can metal make your work more efficient or productive?
dkvc, 27 Mar 2013If you print the photo, you really think that it won't be resized? If you print at a big size,... moreThat why bigger pixel camera is out to full fill biggest size photo printout.
Phone camera is for snapping and view on PC, upload to facebook and etc. How many will actually print it out?
And upscale photo printout never good.
Normal printing (normal 4R) no need re-size the photo, as even 2MP can print it out nicely.

And about the "good screen" thing: the Galaxy S2 have a good a screen, the HTC One S have a good screen, the iPhone 4 have a good screen, the Nokia N9 have a good screen... All of these phones have great screens, now the only thing they are doing is increasing PPI even further which simply isn't something that will help you in daily work, it's only something that make the screen look (slightly) better, so it's aesthetics, just like phone design. I'm not putting words on your mouth, I'm just saying that it's the same thing. But luckly, the HTC One doesn't only look great, but also have a great screen, not a monochromatic one.
Most of the users who buy S4 will also buy a leather cover which looks cool and also protects the screen taking away the advantage of HTC One's Aluminium.
[deleted post]So, based on your string theory again, we will need to carry different phones for different distances? Wow!
Come on! But well, you do have a point there anyways. HTC One camera is merely 4MP after all. Yup, you are so right that HTC One is only good for close up objects, like taking photos of droid toys.... LOL!

Hmm. You like to abuse your phone eh? Then you REALLY do need metal made phones for that matter! LOL!
Sorry, but I do not abuse devices I own. Not women too, if you get what I mean... hahaha...
"And I just find it pretty funny people saying that they don't care about looks, but they love their big super AMOLED screens with more pixel density than your eyes can see. A bit of hipocrisy I say.". Please do not put words into our mouths. We DO LIKE good screens. But not necessary phone designs. Phone built and good screens are 2 different things entirely! I bet you are those who will get a phone built wit metal, but having a monochrome screen? (See? I put words into your mouth too!)
