While HTC One comes with the Aluminium unibody, Galaxy S4 comes with a plasticky body. HTC One feels very awesome when held in hands, all thanks to the Engineering marvel as it takes 150 minutes to make one HTC One smartphone.

    HTC One is the best piece to flaunt because of its aluminium unibody, where as S4’s plastic body is seen on several cheap handsets making it seems to one of them.

    The s4 has got amazing specs, but the design isn’t premium,(plastic). The HTC one may look incredible, but it just hasn’t got the immense power and the megapixels for its camera comparing it to the s4. In my opinion Samsung’s flagship phone has already won the smartphone contest, just waiting for the next iPhone 5s or 6 to challenge the s4. The Xperia Z, LG Optimus G Pro, Google X Phone are still yet to be considered (or waited for) if you don’t want an s4…

      Dont go by “4 MP” tag on HTC One. Its not mega pixel. Its micro pixel!! Its supposed to take better pictures than a normal 12 mega pixel camera.

        Nope, they are called “Ultrapixel”, not “Micropixel” (that do not exist)

        Please guys, pay attention to what you write in comments but ALSO in your articles, thank you.

    Why do you say that the S4 will have a quad core processor, when it will have an octo processor? Regards Wez

      It has two types of processors and they would be available depending on the location.
