Both of those cases you listed the more expensive card is 5-7% faster clock per clock and OC about the same, in this case 13% difference in display size exist two phones about the same size & price(under contract). Plus you are comparing GPU performance to display size.

Still I don't think either phone is better overall, it is all about which one is better for you based on your preference and usage pattern.

Ij that case, in youra and ppl youve called, which phone had the better call sound and microphone quality? The actual phone part is very important and it is the reason Im leaning towards the blackberry q10 instead. ppl have reviewed it saying the call qual is clear as a landline.

As far as the external speaker is concerned the HTC One definitely wins hands down.

Depend on how you usually take phone calls, if you do speak phone call a lot then HTC One is better, but in-ear phone call both are about the same, haven't had any problem with call quality on either phone.

Thank you for persuading me to go SG4 come July smile.gif I couldn't decide if I wanted the SG4 or One...I use my phone for almost EVERYTHING, especially a lot of web browsing, so that bigger screen does come in handy. Especially when showing other people some photos and youtubing.

And considering the phone will always be with me, it'll be nice having the ability to take a quality picture of anything that pops up worth remembering.....(though I do wish it was the same sensor as the Lumia 920's)

The Galaxy S4 has a much better camera. Superior quality all around. 13MP vs 4MP... the Galaxy S4's 13MP sensor just destroys the One's 4MP when it comes to sharpness and clarity.

Yes the HTC One has better low light performance but who takes photos in low light? I don't.

Also, because of the HTC One camera's low resolution (4MP), even the slightest zoom in will cause the quality to fall sharply.

That's a low speced piece o crap too, screen will look hideous.

Most likely the Mega is not worth buying over a 6" Galaxy Note 3 with Snapdragon 800 SOC.

Yes the HTC One has better low light performance but who takes photos in low light? I don't.

Also, because of the HTC One camera's low resolution (4MP), even the slightest zoom in will cause the quality to fall sharply.

I've used both the GS4 and the HTC One. You grossly under-exaggerate the quality of the camera. A good 65% of the time you actually take a photo/video, you are going to be indoors without a good light source to illuminate your object that you are taking a photo of. That means not enough light is able to make it to the sensors because the pixels are too small as they are trying to fit so many in such a small space. The HTC One eliminates that.

In terms of good light performance, the HTC One isn't ANYWHERE near as bad as you make it sound. Its actually extremely sharp. And even with the zoom feature, it still maintains quite good quality. Not amazing quality, but better than most cameras out there with higher pixel density (which those phones get their pixel density destroyed anyhow during compression to actually fit a photo in a non-RAW format on your phone so your SD card/flash memory isn't depleted faster than you can snap your fingers.

So its basically, would you take:

  • GS4: Where the camera is only good in about 35% of the normal usage situations? And awful in 65%?

or

  • HTC One: Where the camera is good in 65% of normal usage situations? And okay in 35%?

Any indoor photos will generally create a low light situation, so I HIGHLY doubt that you don't take low light photos.


And then there is the screen. OLED still isn't up there with LCD technology. Its highly saturated in terms of the red/green spectrum, kinda like how a wide gamut (8+FRC/10/12 bit panels) monitor is highly saturated, regardless of color calibration (you'll notice the reddish hue taking a priority on those types of monitors).

And then there is the sheer difference in build quality. Do you want to carry a plastic piece of crap that flexes at the lightest touch? Or do you want to carry a solid, light chunk of aluminum that doesn't even flex if you put your whole muscle to try and break it?



That reasoning is exactly what led me to return the GS4 for the HTC One. A slightly faster SOC and useless features aren't worth it for the sacrifice in build quality and overall robustness of the HTC One.


Oh, and also, the HTC One generally sells around $50-100 cheaper on average than the Samsung GS4.


Its a damn no brainer.
