Wait a few more days and after you guys have placed your hands on the real phones, you will be able to give a more truthful comment here
Using both Samsung and HTC since long. Surprised how HTC one cud win in three comparisons. S4 is king of Android jungle. There is a feel attached to it. The overall package of S4 is something which is ahead of its time. Don't waste your money and time on HTC craps when S4 available. Go for S4 and feel the difference.
I do love HTC One look and built material, but I have to admit that SGS4 has more better features. Actually I don't care about the difference on clock speed and screen, since I won't notice it on daily usage, but I feel a bit doubt on HTC One's camera performance, is it proper enough to record my precious moment, both still image and video? Knowing that now I am using HTC OneX that have a higher megapixel...
IBadz, 27 Mar 2013Just so you know there are different types of polycarbonates and there are different types af ... moreNo HTC was NOT the first company to use anodized alluminium on a phone, the first was Nokia with the Nokia N8 back on 2010.
They did the same thing in iPhone 5, slimmer and lighter with a larger screen. Loyal apple fans never look out of apple's offering and defend it in every possible way. Take for example the fact that they still say retina display with pride. Though its old stuff with much less ppi count. Now Samsung brings forth a SGS3(advance) with pumped up specs, gimmicky features and ya, bigger screen in lighter body although with a applaudable CPU. But the loyal Samsung fans would never accept that SGS3(advance)=SGS4
Everyone knows HTC one is not gonna be any match to the money in the pocket of Samsung, which it uses to buy everything innovative in market to put in their flagship
But still, I am dead bore of clone phones, I want some innovative phone which when u hold in ur hand makes u stand away from the crowd of clones with cutting edge tech under the hood and is distinctly distinguishable
Just my opinion!
Thanks GSMa for the pros and cons, but those who are gonna buy the ONE to be the ONE are gonna buy the ONE
The Untouchable, 27 Mar 2013The tie on the design isn't just based on that single fact that the S4 managed to put alot big... moreJust so you know there are different types of polycarbonates and there are different types af Aluminium. Just because some polycarbonate is bulletproof doesn't mean SGS4 will be using that same material.There are different proportions and shapes of carbon atoms that form different types of polycarbonates. Take graphite and diamond as an example.Same atom different structure,differing strength
The aluminium used in One on the other hand is ANODISED. Not the pure form found in cans etc etc.These types of aluminiums are considered one of the strongest and lightest types of metal used in space shuttles,satellites and Rolls Royce.Htc was the first mobile company to use it in One S.The One's back is even more durable than iPhone apparently.
Educate Yourself before using illogical statements.
The Untouchable, 27 Mar 2013The tie on the design isn't just based on that single fact that the S4 managed to put alot big... moreWell, about the greater megapixel camera... Remember, htc sensor is bigger.
People fighting over phones what has the world come down to. If you want a HTC one buy it or prefer s4 go buy it why waste time here? And if gsmarena is so biased why are you people even on this site!
awfulthoughtful, 27 Mar 2013HTC Fans piss me the hell off. The One is definitely a good phone but that does not change the... moreYeah, it's annoying, isn't it. I mean, what has happened with this place?
[deleted post]The tie on the design isn't just based on that single fact that the S4 managed to put alot bigger screen in a more compact body (which never happened before in the history of smartphones, mind you), but also by the facts that the S4 is also noticeably thinner and lighter despite having larger battery and much higher resolution camera, and it also has micro sd card slot and removable battery for those desperate times. I believe the premium feel and look are the only win the htc has over the S4, right? And the iphone has those since 2010? Aluminum isn't that premium also, you know. It's not more premium than a can of Coke (we also know how durable that is, don't we). Polycarbonate on the other hand, is the building material of bullet-proof glass. So I would say the One is lucky Gsmarena gave it a tie, don't you think?
Plastic never my choice. I can't bear to be seen with a poor man's phone..
HTC one it is.. I'll be getting it for my birthday..
Samsung firstly is a copycat and secondly is boring n cheap who has the worst customer service ever and takes its customers fr a ride.. Once a samsung, never a samsung again..
It's not worth the upgrade from S3. Better to keep S3 or else jump to something else.. HTC One for instead. Sammy running out of ideas, only make the phone bigger, claiming upcoming NOTE 3 has 6.9" screen size! LOL... Shame on you.
YannisV, 27 Mar 2013I wonder how desperate HTC and HTCFans are. Come on guys One is the best phone HTC ever produc... moreEnjoy your plastic gs3 replica then. Won't you be upset when none of your friends can tell you even have a new phone without you waving it in their faces?
HTC Fans piss me the hell off. The One is definitely a good phone but that does not change the fact that HTC is an ailing, desperate company and that the Galaxy S series is consistently better. THANK YOU for your unbiased, scientific comparison I've had it to my neck with "HTC One this!" and "HTC One that!" I'll definitely be buying the S4, after reading this. It's best non-stock Android offering since the S2
Got a chance to use the S4 for about an hour last week. It's an all around improvement of the S3, but it's definitely not worth upgrading from an s3, which I have also used. There's no wow factor,I strain to think what Samsung spent 10billon dollars on in their r&d department. All for a phone that looks far too similar to the last one. I seem to be the only one who thinks that phones getting lighter and slimmer is a bad thing. I have bought the HTC One and it is phenomenal, I keep finding excuses just to pick it up and use it. You just don't get that with a plastic phone like the s3 or s4. Samsung fans can argue that their phone is 0.01% faster or thinner, but having looked at both of these phones I can't justify not buying the htc one. It's about time android moved into the premium design department. But it's not just the design, the speakers are amazing, the camera is fantastic for everyday use. I love it that most phone fans suddenly become camera experts when comparing phones by the way
its crystal clear that samsung beats htc in most of the major catogories.design doesnt really matter that much?( i dono maybe for me.but somesay thats the only downside ithers see about the s4.)
but gotta say if u buy a smartphone for its looks then...
seriously why should you spend so much for the design while there are other so cool features in that?and better camera etc?
please stop being desparate choose wisely.its a lot of money.so dont waste it.buy the best when you can.
[deleted post]I wonder how desperate HTC and HTCFans are. Come on guys One is the best phone HTC ever produced but not the best of all, you know that S4 is better you just know it and that test just proved it, but you are fans and that is what fans do support their team even more if it looses a game. Im startin to believe that HTC workers just spend their time around forums trollin and sayin bad things about S4. Sales will tell the story. In about a year we will have the S5 but are we gonna have HTC? and i dont mean the next ONE i mean the whole HTC..
