So many haters on the s4 in here, the one isn't that great of a phone, sure it looks cool but that's where it ends. Battery is not great at all, the s4 is the clear winner here.

If you want a unibody phone with a small battery and just really good speakers and decent screen then get the one. Performance will be about the same except sense slows stuff down way more and they'll be a greater dev following on the gs4 if you ever wanna root.

What does the one do that's new? Imo other than the screen you'll be downgrading going to the one from the gs3.

Small battery? My One has lasted 3 days without charging, average usage levels. That beats by Sensation by a mile, that never lasted more than 12 hours even with the extended battery.

I can assure that Sense doesn't slow down this phone, the UI couldn't be any faster/smoother.

I've not used an S4 so I can't say which it better, all I can say is that I have a One and absolutely love it biggrin.gif My gripe is the Blinkfeed screen, it's useless to me as I don't use Facebook much or use my phone to view news items. I have another tile set as 'home' though so it's not too much of an issue.

3 days? My note 2 with its 3100mah battery won't last that long, and your saying your one with a 2300mah battery lasts 3 days, hell no. Even with wifi on the entire time at best I can get 2 and a half days with 9hrs screen on time.

I'm sorry but I don't believe you one bit.

Advantages of the Samsung Galaxy S4 over the HTC One:


lol what? Too wide and too flat looking. Its on square rectangle at 4.7" versus a LARGER (sammy) sqaure rectangle at 5"... the ergonomics are going to be just like ALL other current smartphone....

Looking at that list too...
Htc will get a 4.2.2 upgrade one way or another
dimensions- 4.7" is probably nicer than 5... were creeping into the 90's brick phone sizes and I thin someone concerned about ergonomics would consider this... PLUS 4.7 @ 1080p = better ppi == clearer display.

camera- read about it, the htc one's camera is superior- they're just bad marketers...

processor- i have a crap LG Nitro HD right now w/ a basic dual core snapdragon- its faster than ANYONE should need on a mobile device... not sure why this even matters now unless you are going to try and Fold on your freakin phone.

TL;DR
These phones aren't that dissimilar IMO the HTC is a winner from a technical and innovation standpoint- but the Sammy is just getting a lot of hype because they have the $ to market it.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is a good performer in the individual categories and thanks to efficient standby, it scored a very respectable endurance rating of 63 hours. That’s how long it will last between charges if you do an hour each of calling, web browsing and watching videos every day.

As for battery tests, it looks like this trades blows with the HTC One, even with a bigger screen. I was really impressed to see the web browsing up there with my iPad mini... Out of all the devices I have tested between me and all my friends, the iPad Mini definitely beats everything else. I use it moderately and have not charged it for a week.

The gs4 is the same size as the gs3 but with bigger screen and the gs3 was 4.8" so it's not that big. Both screens are pretty much the same other than ones amoled and the ones not. Don't blame marketing, that's just the easy way out.

Don't know if that's accurate, my note 2 blows away my girls maxx comparing battery. You also can't put a tablet that's always connected to wifi on there with phones, that entire test is just dumb.

To me HTC One looks better. GS IV looks so crappy cheap. And after Samsung admitted that used bad and fake marketing tricks against HTC and their One phone I would rather go for the One.

What would I have to gain by lying? I'm not trying to prove anything is better than anything else, I get that some people don't like/want the One. I was just stating a fact, I got 3 days, the battery can't really be considered small/short life.

I probably wouldn't believe me either, I wish I'd screengrabbed the usage page now tongue.gif
