    Hopefully you all don't take this as some type of blast or something but I'd like to give my assessment on how HTC has won the summer and bested the galaxy line. My opinion basically matches overwhelming number of tech sites and pundits that has the HTC One the best phone out and possibly the best smart phone developed. Let me start by saying that you can check through my history and I have owned Samsung's past 3 iterations of the Galaxy line ( currently GN2) so yes I have ample experience with the product. HTC has delivered a product that is undeniably the best looking smartphone created to date. It has amazing detail and design, something that we all know Sammy lacks. Then there is the software. Owning a Sammy product one would think that Android is just a lag fest operating system when in fact its far from it. The One best the Galaxy line in UI feel, look, smoothness and functunality. The Email, SMS, Call applications are miles ahead of the Galaxy. With every Sammy phone it was a must that I downloaded 3rd party apps on each of those and with the One they all "just work". The screen is miles ahead as well on the One. Sammy really needs to get its act together in the software department and stop trying to push out half baked products on a mass scale. After their phones reach 6 months its almost imperative that a full wipe be done so that you can at least have a better experience. My GN2 is a severe lag fest and it is a shame. To sum things up the refreshing software the One carries is a relief. Everything from the fonts, task bar, task manager and overall UI look makes the One seem like a thing of the future instead of a clunky, cartoonish and outdated look. I encourage every Sammy user to give the One at least a try for a few days. I can almost guarantee that you will feel refreshed about Android.

    The fact that I still can't get swipe to screen capture to work on my GN2 pretty much sums it up.. The bottom line is that most of those gimmicks don't work when you try to use them most of the time and is often more time consuming to get them to work.

    They can't defend Samsung against me lol..I defended the Galaxy line againts Apple for years..Like I did, they are going to have to come to terms that HTC has outdone the competition on this one. I've spent about 2500 bucks on Sammy over the past 3 years, the only thing different from me and a fanboy is that I am a fan of the "Best". My hard earned dollars demand it!

    Watching a phone lag like hell can't be subject by can be concluded as fact. There is no secret that the Galaxy line is a lag fest. They still havn't fixed the "wake lag" issues. But of course you're going to say " there is nothing wrong with my phone" .. Lol its fine friend I know that scoop.. I even remember when having a Palm Pre folks used to say on these forums that the phone got 23 hours of battery time which was absolutely impossible..Folks always want to feel good about their decisions.

    To each his/her own.

    Once the One and the S4 are old news, something better will come along.

    As far as what the masses want... the sales numbers cant be disputed.

    Really? Go down their forum and see all the complaints about dead pixels and bad camera quality and horrible button placements. Aside from the fact that a friend told me at best buy its one of the most returned phones of the year.

    Except in sales...and that is what HTC cares about. The HTC One has not outsold the S4 on any carrier that they are both sold on. But I get the feeling that those facts may not matter to you. Glad you like the HTC One. I like my S4 just fine. Have a great evening.

    "Won the Summer"? That doesn't even make sense? How can a phone win the summer?

    That sounds to me like a line fed to you by your handlers in the social media marketing dept. at HTC.

    What matters is sales & so I'm pretty sure HTC won't win in that regard.

    PSA!!!

    Before anyone pulls out the old SALES argument lets remember that the Iphone best any one android manufacturer in raw sales. Don't start to act like the Iphone fanboys that new their phones were inferior and couldn't result to nothing but " who sells the most" argument..lol
