Thanks, anyone on here use the HTC one for awhile to see if the edges of the phone similar to many iPhone 5's I have seen has become scratched up with little nicks? I understand the concept of a case as well :D just curious and the decision is hard where as here in Canada we have 3 year contracts as well as contracts connected to the data plans. The S4 seems to kill the One but theres just somthing about it that keeps me wondering.

Hello, I have been using all iPhones since released, I am now at the point where I realize I want a more custom set up and to no longer spend cash on my music as I tend to do all the time. I use my device for music, watch allot of videos online, another main function is the camera. I have watched and read most likely all reviews comparing these phones and wanted to know in real life which one will provide the functions I need, any feed back will be good as well as if this "ultra pixel" is hype, if its not up to par with the iPhone then I do not want it and I mean detail without noise, also in terms of battery I would think both are better then my iPhone? thanks.
Rumor has it htc might announce Stock Android Htc one in July and if its true its a fantastic news since the native htc sense ui isnt very attractive while the latest stock android is.
Your comparison between the cameras is not consistent with most online comparisons which put the HTC One slightly ahead of the S4. I think the S4 only wins when you do pixel peeping, however most photos are viewed at around 2MP resolution, or if cropped they are viewed at ~2-4MP resolution. Having said that I'm still a fan of the S4 with the larger screen + battery despite having the equivalent/slightly smaller dimensions.

psysect, 18 May 2013and again htc one go for best 2013. http://www.techradar.com/news/phone-and-communications/... moreThat's because the Galaxy S4 was not out in the market yet when they made the ranking.

But I p... moreI don't know about s4, but from my experience with a $800 s3 and a $950 note2 the build material is far from good. A protective cover is a must. The glossy 'polycarbonate' of note2 could scratch too easily and it feels too fragile in the hand for its price. Im not a hater, of course i'd buy a Samsung made of aluminum like Htc one or REAL polycarbonate like Nokia Lumia. And unibody design would be flawless, why would one need to change the battery when so easily can use an external one? All this hype about Samsung, but it really does not satisfy me compared to the price (except the screen size and the battery life of note2 which btw is awesome!)
Rad-K, 17 May 2013Despite of how good Galaxies may be, the looks is terrible, i hate it and gonna hate it till t... moreThank you for being one of them. Like I said design is preference so That's up to you. But I personally have never seen anyone call a Galaxy ugly in person. Not one. Just haters online. And while it's not a super sexy phone it's from ugliest or even ugly. And premium materials is not even up for debate. Polycarbonate and gorilla glass 3 are very premium and That's just fact. Stating otherwise is hate and stupidity.
the htc one is a good android phone, so is the sony xperia z, but the s4 is the best android phone...
s4 sales is about to go 10M next week i hope htc one and sony xperia z can catch up...
I like how the only categories that the HTC One wins in are the subjective ones, and ppl use this to say the phone is better than the phone that wins in every real category... please ppl...
I had an S3 since about 8 months ago and I now have an HTC One. I think it's the best phone I've ever used. Of course, it's not perfect. But the deciding factor for me to get it over the S4 are the design and speakers. To me, the only REAL advantage of the S4 are the camera and the removable battery. The camera of the One is not bad enough to really go for the S4. And as for the battery, an external powerpack solves that problem.
Hey, just like with your wife/husband, do you really want to see an ugly thing when you wake up in the morning... or do you want to see a thing of beauty? You decide.
