    How is the lack of an SD card subjective? If the HTC One came in two models, one with an SD slot and one without which one do you think would be the best seller?
    Don't think an sd card slot is that serious.. give to two options 32 and 64.

    I am not liking it for one reason: Samsung's deliberate attempt at de-emphasizing Android and Google.

    Watch the launch. How many times were Android and Google mentioned?

    The S4 is the setup to eventually migrate all their "S" brand services over to their Tizen line.

    HTC one:build quality, more sophisticated ui, no SD card slot, confusing 4mp camera. S4: cheap looking design, more childish like ui but with a butt load of features you may or may not use, SD card slot, and pretty promising 13mp camera. SO... basically both are very good phones but for different reasons. The s4 will outsell the one no doubt, but which device really is better? I guess it really doesn't matter.

    If the S4 is an improved S3 then it's a great phone, period.

    I feel like I'm reading 4chan or something in this thread. Is school out today?

    Almost every article about the Galaxy S4 I go to, there seems to be a mob of people attacking the phone and praising the HTC One or Xperia Z. Anyone who posts something positive is bombarded with ridicule. My question is: why so much hate? After all, aren't we are all fans of Android?
    There are always people who hate... but they don't matter in the grand scheme of things. Samsung is going to sell a ton of these Galaxy S4's... and they will sell more than the HTC One. There's more to a phone than just having a metal body.

    Because most people talk about the isheep and how brand loyal they are then hate on Samsung when, in reality, they are brand loyal themselves and push for Motorola or HTC. Most people hate because they are hypocrites. I will buy Sony, lg, HTC, Motorola, apple or whoever suites my wants and needs.

    If you guys haven't noticed, the Galaxy S2 looked exactly like the original Galaxy S so why are people so upset over the S4 looking like the S3?

    Whether or not it's better than the One is subjective.

    Now if you're trying to say that the software and hardware components are roughly equal and it basically comes down to the appearance of the phones, then yes. Appearance could be a matter of personal taste. Feature sets could also be a matter of personal preference.

    But if you're trying to say specs, hardware and performance are a matter of personal taste, then you'd be wrong.

    based on what? There's not really any noticeable difference between any of the flagship smartphones this year in hardware. So basically it comes down to which you think looks better, and which UI skin you like more.

    You're not gonna notice in everyday use. So it's subjective which is better.

    It would seem that most of the haters like to post, so let me be different and say that I like the S4. Form factor, plastic and all. It will obviously sell millions to happy customers so the hates will be in the minority, or apple fanboys.

    No, HTC is trying to be the Apple of the Android world. Every flaw the Apple phones have, HTC copies. Locked battery. No SD card slot.

    SD cards and removable batteries are dead for any other manufacturer even google,the one that made android, does not support SD cards, there are "flaws" with any phone.

    Who buys a smartphone just for the display and the case build materials? Only those that are fans of those brands and value style over performance. The improvements to the internal hardware, user interface, the camera and JB 4.2.2 gives the GS4 the edge in the user experience which is really what counts. It is really impressive how a 5 inch HD display was fit in the same space as its predecessor. Complaints of the GS3 were non HD display and the battery life wasn't great; both aspects were improved. Some will never see the big picture and some will never be happy.

    YOU DON'T NEED FREAKING 8 CORES FOR PERFORMANCE. God damn when is this myth about the more corespondent better gonna die? You are just looking at specs and not real world performance.
