I actually laughed when they both came out of the woodwork and posted right after each other, android nerds to the rescue or what.
From everything I've read the One has a more premium finish vs the S4 so it will feel better in my hands. I always get a nice sturdy case for my phones so dropping them is a moot point for me really, unless they go down the shitter. I've had Sammy phones for a few years and I'm happy enough to go give the HTC One a go, a lot of my friends have had HTC devices and they've all been happy enough with them.
Ah, name-calling and an ad hominem, the worst and second worst types of arguments in a disagreement.
, What makes a "premium" finish anyway? Is aluminum that much more expensive than polycarbonate? HTC has a few good phones, the One included. I'm not arguing that. My point is that the way a phone feels in your hand compared to another phone is subjective. Some people like how the S4 feels lighter, or don't like how hot the One gets since it is made of mostly metal. The build quality of one phone over another isn't subjective, which I don't think SomedayTheFire really meant to say in the original post I replied to. What does all of this matter if you are going to just mask your phone in a case anyway? These are things you should actually think about
-HTC One's disappointing button lay out
-The camera. The One is better in low light, however the S4 has better quality overall.
-Sense Vs Touchwiz.
-S4's repairability score is an 8/10 and the HTC One is a 1/10.
-Removable battery of the S4. The removable battery is good because all electronics start losing it's charge after a year or so. Swapping batteries out is cheaper and easier with the S4. Also, some people like to carry around a spare battery in situations just in case.
-If you don't use headphones, the One has pretty nice front facing speakers.
-Expandable memory of the S4. I like having videos, music, pictures, and the ability to download whatever off of my phone onto my 64 GB microSD card. The One's 26 GB of usable storage just isn't enough. The microSD card isn't tied to the phone, so I can use it with my other/next phone, tablet or computer.
, Yes I'm 12. Got those sources to support your claim yet, Sir? Also, the S4 has Gorilla Glass 3, while the One has Gorilla Glass 2.
