Yes it's pretty much best in most cases, but that doesn't mean anyone should be able to tell you or anyone what to get.
Variety is amazing. Z, S4, One, Omnia, Xperia, Optimus, Sharp, Nokia...Get everything and lets have a party.
And that's for display
eddie421, 15 Jun 2013Have you read the reviews? Almost all have picked the HTC one screen over SG4. While I do agre... more-Yes I have seen reviews. And most people are either HTC centric or only basing off how even though S4 is overall better and the screen is more flexible "not literally" They choose the one simply because it looks better and still an exceptional device.
whites is one of the biggest hear say ever. It's not quite as perfect, but not so extremely off by any means and is way more accurate with white than LCD is with black. And in natural mode it's nearly as color perfect, but with real black and better white balance making it overall way more accurate.
Sharpness has to do with pixel matrix not Amoled or LCD. At 440+ppi both screens are unbelievably sharp.
Amoleds are not as bright, but their technology, contrast, and being less reflective help make up that difference. And in automatic mode the S4 screen gets 20-30% brighter than manual maximum.
It gives you a headache? Are you turning up to full brightness at night time?

Almost all have picked the HTC one screen over SG4. While I do agree the SG4 screen is nice to a certain extent but no way is sharper, brighter, clearer and more accurate like the HTC one. Even after changing the color mode on the SG4 still the biggest fault on super amoled is the color white which you encounter more than deep blacks. Compare the two screens side by side I think there is no contest. In fact, super amoled gives me a headache looking at it.
[deleted post]You can have your own opinions which is fine. But I will still base mine of reviews, use, and others opinions. And like I said. Never once have I come across any one person to ever think an Amoled was bad or worse, nor that the Galaxy looked bad. Only haters online.
And also like I said try that natural mode on the Amoled if you are truly so concerned about that slight bit more natural. Which it's overall more natural. Look at black at an angle on IPS.
Ty G., 14 Jun 2013Wow! As if I intend to drop my phone:)99% don't plan on it. It just happens sometimes. That's why we get cases....and then your phone is thicker and covered.

I will still base my observations on real and actual people's reactions, everytime they see my phone compared to their S4, S3, note2 or IP5's etc etc.. a friend of mine said earlier: I wish i waited for the htc one instead of.. (no need to mention what his phone was)
Anonymous, 14 Jun 2013Just about any phone needs recharged if you use it moderately or especially heavily.Of course.

-Other phones have that in a slimmer/less height profile making it fit better
-Beats is one of the worst scams ever and boom sound is way below par for what it should be
-Not the best in sound performance and most phones generally have that now...so....
-Not winning there either
-Yeah props on being the first UP cam in mobile for sure, but no where near best low light or overall in any shape
-Not winning there either
-Most phones now a days
-Also many phones
-Also not alone
-Are you this delusional?
-Kind of nifty
So where is this amazing only known to HTC One list?

Aluminum scratches and dents and is not as friendly with dispersing heat. The One could easily pop off front plates in a simple drop.
And even a repair shop has to bend it to open it.

For two speakers up front the DB and overall sound should be much much more than what it is.
And as far as screen. WAYYYYYYYYYY better on S4. I have never once in many people heard anyone like an LCD better except for many haters on internet. And S4 has a quick simple setting that puts it within a few percent of the same accuracy. While still showing black and having a more proper white balance overall equating to a technically more overall natural screen.
A 4 mega pixel camera vs. a 13? The nicer case design doesn't even matter if you put it in a protective case anyway. The radio would be nice but the camera is more important. That's something that you're going to use all the time, the radio, maybe once in a great while, most stations have internet radio option now.
