    Maybe a better title would be: "This is why I like the Galaxy S4 better than the HTC One."
    I agree Jim. The title sets the tone, and the title of this thread is very misleading. It's like being at a car forum and having someone claim "This is why the Camaro is better than the Corvette". While the Camaro might have some pluses (easier on your pocketbook for example) most open-minded people would agree that the Corvette is a better purchase. Guess it all comes down to each persons definition of the word "better" and how they apply it. Having said that they are both pieces of electronics, and so each one can be measured and rated accordingly. When doing that (in the real world) there is no doubt that the HTC One will come out ahead. A perfect example is in the area of performance. The S4 looks good on paper, but in the real world many reviewers have shown that it lags at times, and isn't as smooth as the One. This might be because of the documented S4 heating issues, or maybe they are using it at the time with Wi-Fi (the s4 also has documented wi-fi issues, confirmed by samsung).

    It's harder to rate features. That, I agree, is highly subjective. No one is denying that the S4 isn't packed with lots of features, but most of them make better party tricks then something useful in the real world. This makes the plastic S4 feel gimmicky. One thing that samsung has done much better than HTC (or any other phone manufacture) has been to distribute and market the phone. Fortunately many see right through samsungs hype, and S4 sales have now dropped around 30% and continue to fall.

    FALSE, sales have not fallen. Sales estimates have been cut. The S4 is currently selling in record numbers, however the entire high end smartphone market is taking a hit AND Samsung is eating into its own projected sales with other models. Facts are rather stubborn.

    You're right, they are. Try not to drink too much of the samsung kool-aid.


    Clickity-Click.


    ...and I quote "Samsung took a stock hit on Friday, losing $12 billion as prices dropped 6 percent after reports of Galaxy S4 sales slowing down."


    Verified here. Quote "Sales of the S4, initially Samsung's fastest selling smartphone, have also fallen off since the device's introduction in April."


    Weird.

    Yea weird that you didn't provide a quote or proof of your aforementioned 30% drop in sales of the S4.
    Weird how you conveniently left that out.
    But now you have another shot at providing that proof since I've reminded you of your heretofore unfounded 30% reference.

    What is going on? Is Samsung really becoming so filled with fan boys? It's a phone... It's a good phone.. Be careful though when you go to whip it out and put the ruler next to it though because it may not be as big as you are claiming.

    It's astonishing how some people have deluded themselves into thinking their opinions are established fact.
    What about some of us who are deluded by facts????

    Can you find me the picture that shows which of this money was spent on what Samsung product.

    Cause if I recall correctly,

    They make TVs, Laptops, Flash Memory, SSD Memory, Regular Hard Drives,DVD/Blu-ray players, Refrigerators, and the list goes on and on.

    I also left this video of a non Samsung phone commercial for you to prove they exist.

    Speaking of the devil....

    "Summary: Reports suggest that Samsung may be retiring smartphone models with low sales figures early"

    "
    A recent JP Morgan report demonstrated fears over the Galaxy S4's sluggish sales."

    Guess there is only but so many s3/s4 fanboys who can afford it....

    Sorry, you might have to actually read the article to get that information. I know, scary thought huh?

    I understand what you're saying. No one's ever seen a samsung s3/s4 ad on TV, but I'm really annoyed by them constantly showing ads about their Laptops, Flash Memory, SSD Memory, Regular Hard Drives, DVD/Blu-ray players, Refrigerators, and the list goes on and on. Weird.

    This might help you.

    Amazing what is in the actual article.


    In addition to cutting the S4's production levels, the S3 is reportedly due to retire earlier than expected -- joining a number of models that will be cut away due to poor sales performance. Samsung will not be able to raise marketshare rates and compete against rival Apple using only the flagship Galaxy S4 smartphone, and so rumors suggest the firm will be launching a new range of models from the Galaxy Note III to Galaxy S4 Mini and to Galaxy S4 Zoom.

    Then there is this part.

    According to Gartner, Samsung's smartphone marketshare grew 13 percent in Q1 2013. The electronics maker's global smartphone marketshare reached 30.8 percent, whereas rival Apple is estimated to have secured 18.2 percent of worldwide sales.

    The article and the picture were two different sources.

    I did not know the only places to advertise was television. The have seen almost every one of the items advertise, including in trade publications.

    Obviously it's not. Obviously you can apply what I said regarding all of their ad outlets.

    The have seen almost every one of the items advertise, including in trade publications.
    So have I, and whenever I see a samsung refrigerator ad the first thing that comes to mind is "This ad is showing my why I should buy a samsung refrigerator, and not an Apple IFridge"
