    Old? Lol wow.

    Got it, but the op should make their own decisions based on their own needs. Maybe I'm just getting old and sarcastic.

    Seriously? Perhaps you misinterpret the last post. I'm neither for or against the S4 or the One as someone who has both. The OP just reminds me of "please help me figure out which is better" and the sugesstion was to be truly happy with your choice only you should answer your own question.

    i wonder why nobody mentions the crappy LG UI which almost rivals the Touchwiz in crappiness. no Launcher can fix that.
    if you truly like intuitive and smarter UI, choosing the ONE is a plus.

    I haven't experienced the LG skin but coming from years of Samsung, HTC and Sense 5.x is a warm, inviting welcome. I have been completely satisfied with my choice in the HTC One.

    Everyone bashes Touchwiz because that's what appears cool at the moment. We all on here talk about rooting and flashing roms, or at the very least installing launchers but yet people still act like Touchwiz ruins lives. If you're looking into Android, chances are you will probably be introduced to launchers at some point. HTC and Sense is fine, but so is Samsung's Touchwiz, the LG ui, and Moto Blur. If you don't like it, change it. That's what Android is all about. It's getting so old listening to people talk about customization in one thread, and then whine about a OEM skin in the next.

    In the case of skins (or forks is you prefer) is that beauty is not just skin deep. The skins also penetrate into your settings menus, system apps, notification bar, etc. For example both Samsung and LG still use the older gingerbread appearance for many of their system apps, ie. the dialer, contacts. Samsung exacerbates the problem by using gingerbread elements on some screens, this florescent green theme on the quick settings, and ICS elements in other areas. While I agree this doesn't bother many people, it's still bothersome to some.

    The only way you can rid yourself of this is to use custom ROMs. This is a solution for techies and even in Android circles these days, that's not as common as it used to be. ROMs were a better solution when Android was in a much less refined state than it is now. Back in GB and before that, I'd almost argue that ROMs were a must. Nowadays we're well beyond ROMs being anything more than an alternative way to tinker with your phone.

    The only phones on the market that I would currently consider is the Nexus 5 or the HTC One. I love my One and the N5 will be my new daily driver here soon. HTC One will make a great backup phone! Even as a main phone its still an amazing device. Go with your own needs before any hype. I just have a phone problem! :P

    if you could perhaps give a reason why you'll still prefer the ONE over let's say, G2? thanks.

    I can see your point. And I do agree. But I also feel like with every phone there's going to be a few things that wont be EXACTLY what you wish it would be. Maybe not at first or with a new device we've been looking forward to, but in time that's inevitable. So to constantly bash skins/forks just gets so old because there's other options. If you hate Touchwiz, get HTC. If you hate all skins/forks, get a Nexus. I personally disliked a lot of Motoblur back when the Razr line first came out but I didn't hate it. And I don't bring it up every single time someone mentions Motorola because I understand that I can change the vast majority of what I don't like, OR I can get something else.

    Android is all about choice and personalization that it's sad how often we get worked up over what we don't like. It's so tremendously easy to pick something else that fits us better if we don't like what one OEM is doing. It's conversations like that that prove to me how often we complain just to complain for complaining's sake.

    On topic though, i'd love the Nexus 5, LG G2, or Note 3. But the Nexus 5 is at the top of my list currently.

    I like HTC and the device. It just fits me best. Spec and needs alone. I say play with each device and see what one you like the best. Ones opinion may not carry over to another. That is why I love the Android platform. Many many choices!

    thanks, i prefer the ONE over the G2 in most aspects, besides the bigger screen size. but the problem is that i live in Israel, and costumer service here might be problematic for some devices.
    HTC for example. terrible service, takes ages to repair or get a new phone, etc. and from what i read there are literally TONS of QC complaints all over the web.
    so that's the main thing i'm afraid of.
    what if i get "purple haze"?? i'm done for!
    it feels almost a matter of pure luck. unless the problems now somehow have gone under control.. i dunno.
    so THAT was almost the main reason to pick the G2. and i HATE going by that reason. not a real choice.

    The Launcher fixed Touchwiz for me.. Because.. It doesn't use it lol. Not sure how a Launcher wouldn't fix it .

    each person need different stuff to be fixed. personally, just seeing Samsung or LG UIs gives me the Heebie jeebies. no Launcher could change the sub menus and different apps inside the UI.
    i'm not much of an endless tweakings guy myself. need something simple and easy on the eye. already looked at many launchers, even the simplest ones are problematic for me.
    from all the videos i watched, at least the Sense doesn't make me wanna change it. i'm fine with it.

    The HTC ONE is Definitely still relevant. It is an excellent device. Compared to the N5, I would still pick the HTC. Compared with the G2, I would probably go G2, even though it would be tough to choose.
    The G2 has that booming camera, edge to edge screen which is 5.2", and the latest processing power. The UI is not as clean, plastic does not feel as nice, and the speakers are under par.
    The ONE has sharpest screen, best speakers (with or without headphones), great UI, and excellent camera features (looking at you Zoe).

    Bottom Line: After living with the ONE for a while, it is an excellent device. A coworker just got the N5 which is OK nothing special IMO. The LG G2 is a great device.

    Now I understand your issue a lot better! Maybe the G2 is a better choice if you have more access to LG. Otherwise for a device vs device I also like the HTC One better. After I get the N5 in a month or so maybe I can sell you mine for cheap and I can send it over seas. Its the unlocked att version. (If the radio works on your current network. GSM)

    thanks, i pulled the trigger on the ONE, and 100% sure i made the right choice, warranty or not. it's just tons better than G2 IMO.
    i don't need more power atm (for at least a year), the camera has much more "feel" than the generic 13mp sharp photos i don't care for.
    the UI is flowing and esthetic, not like the hideous Optimus, etc.. oh and the slow-mo is good enough for me (until they'll make it 720p on the m8, i hope).

    of course there are some problems that make me crazy switching from iphone and IOS7 but I'll get use to them eventually.
