Edit: I should also add that aluminum does indeed hinder signals that's why all the 3g/4g iPads have that black strip on there back something the HTC one is lacking
HTC One(Silver) have white plastic shot into gaps of the aluminium unibody on the back near the antenna zone to help signal, Black ones use black plastic. However how effective those plastic bands are is debatable.
From Anandtech's HTC One review:
To a large extent, all-metal and phone are an oxymoron. It goes without saying that a phone requires cellular connectivity to be more than a brick, and sticking antennas inside of an RF opaque metal box isn’t an option, therefore an all metal platform necessitates using part of the exterior as the radiator itself. The problem with the exterior is that the device then becomes sensitive to capacitive detuning from contact with the skin, to say nothing of the attenuation from such close proximity with your water-filled appendages. I hopefully don’t need to revisit how this has been a problem for other handset manufacturers in the past who were a bit overzealous about pushing industrial design somewhere RF at the time wouldn’t allow it to go.

How about here: HTC One spec on HTC.com

Snapdragon 600 is a SoC meaning every phone that uses APQ8064T uses DDR3
False According to Anandtech: Galaxy S4 actually uses APQ8064AB
, not APQ8064T

APQ8064T was supposed to be its higher clocked/Krait 300 based successor that ended up with the marketing name Snapdragon 600. APQ8064AB however is, at this point, unique to the Galaxy S 4 but still carries the Snapdragon 600 marketing name.
We'll have to keep a close eye on this going forward, but it's clear to me that the Galaxy S 4 is shipping with something different than everyone else who has a Snapdragon 600 at this point.
