The fact you call it "better", without qualifying reasons, means you don't actually know about both phones. The One's screen is significantly brighter, and the difference is easy out in the sun.
Performance in sunlight is only part of the story, not to mention in direct sunlight the One's more reflective screen produce a brighter glare which subtracts from its visibility.

Note 2 is very weak in the Sun, its max brightness is only 240 nits(even less than GS3's 277nits), GS4 is at 319nits max in dynamic mode. While that is not in the same league as a HTC One(456 nits max), it is not that bad in the sun. I have used both phones in the sun, while GS4 is not as visible as max brightness HTC One, the difference is not a game changer. (All brightness data from Anandtech
I wouldn't say GS4 have a better display, but One's is not clearly superior either(Smaller,Sun Glare, and AMOLED's blacks are better than LCD, especially in dark places). This again depend on usage model & the environment. If I had to choose I'd take GS4 only because it is bigger and have less bezel.Edited by sherlock - 6/2/13 at 4:18pm
