    He didn't break the screen because he doesn't want a broken S4. If you watched the video, you would notice that he was only applying 50% pressure and that he said if he applied more the S4 would break (while the One didn't). If the S4 breaks far easier than the One, it means it has inferior build quality. If you refuse to accept that, all of your points about the One mean nothing.

    Tohio, you are smart enough to know that a cracked screen on a phone is not a build quality issue, but rather a user neglect issue. I could drop an s4 on the right surface at the right angle and I'm sure it too would shatter the screen.

    Thread done. After that video, jeez. That bending video kinda made me embarrassed for S4 owners. But really if the phone actually lasts 2 years and you're not a clumsy *** who cares it has it perks. I can say when I spend $650 on a phone retail, I wouldn't want it to sound like that at all.

    Ugh... Really guys? Posting comparison videos as some sort of smoking gun pissing contest is the ultimate in desperation. I mean really guys. This is beyond geekdom.

    My s2 had the same build quality, and I just sold it in perfect condition after 3 years.

    Jennifer, couldn't agree more. I was using the quoted thread as counterpoint to the posts by return_0. He believes screen breakage is a build quality issue, read his post #95 in this thread. Also peruse my posts and you will see that I definitely do not think screen breakage is a build quality issue.

    You do realize that compared to other fast food hamburger restaurants in the US McDonalds is the best.
    Well THAT'S not opinionated. LOL...

    The iPhone and the S4 are close in sales numbers but they far out pace the HTC One
    ONLY because HTC had a hard time getting parts in the beginning. Personally sales figures to me don't mean squat. I could care less what some 16 year old buys (because their friends think it's cool). I want the best product, period. A million lemmings might think that brand X is great but if it's really junk then I won't buy it.

    Next time consider that if something sells massively better that its competitor IN THE SAME CATEGORY then it is the best.
    Not true. You must have owned a Corvair. LOL...

    I couldn't care less what you think is better, like I mentioned before, opinions are just that, opinions. I don't need to show videos or see them, simply because I can go to YouTube and pick any HD video in both devices at the same time and compare from there, just like we have done for the past weeks, in addition to that, you have the at least a dozen of additional features that your selection won't ever have, or pictures quality where it matter the most. My friends are converted already, one of them sold his One today, I've never needed to try to convince them, they did it by themselves, besides, I'm not a fanboy like you and the rest that are trolling here, I have had HTC, LG and Motorola's Androids for the past 4 years, I just go with the one that does the work for me at the moment.

    Moderators, please, the thread was intended for us the ones who bought the S4, to tell why we decided to go with it over the HTC One, so other readers that are deciding can decide by themselves, if you keep allowing this non sense trolling from people that are not happy because others think different, then it doesn't make sense to allow this kind of threads at all.

    For you trolls, get a life and go to your side of the forum and the best way to defend your purchase is not coming here and keep trolling every single thread here but to create threads on your forums describing your opinions, you'll also hate that S4 get there trolling.

    Enough said, and please don't quote me anymore as I won't lose any more time with this childish mine is bigger than yours' kind of posts.

    It has to do with materials VS. application. You don't see many plastic cars do you? Saturn tried it and they went out of business because no one wanted one. There are many high strength plastics available today but what material do you think most cars chassis are made out of? I'll give you a clue, it's NOT plastic. And what about computers? Ask yourself why did Apple spend millions of dollars researching materials, and then decided upon using aluminum for their new Macbook Pros? For electronics there are so many advantages of this material over cheap plastic. And speaking of advantages, see many plastic heat-sinks? Didn't think so. There's a reason for that. Plastic and heat don't get along very well. There's also the social interpretations of the materials. Most people associate plastic with toys, and aluminum with higher-end products because it's generally felt to be more elegant. Aluminum is also a more "green" material as plastic is made with petroleum. Aluminum also is more efficient to recycle than plastic. Once the aluminum has been produced, it can be recycled over and over again.

    When you use the term 'build quality' it can mean many things. Design is also a big part of build quality. So is longevity. A
    luminum will out do plastic every time in the longevity department. If you were a manufacture and your concern was making more profit, then plastic would be what you prefer. If, however, you wanted to portray that your product was classy and
    elegant, then you'd do as Apple has and choose aluminum. The final nail in the coffin for those samslum plastic lovers is that samsung has themselves decided to move AWAY from plastic, and the next S5 will be similar to the HTC One and use Aluminum. The s4 fanboys have no answer for that one.





    Having a better display is one reason I got rid of my s4 and switched to the HTC One. If you know someone who thinks the s4 looks better - then they don't need a smartphone, they need an ophthalmologist. Can the s4 even display true white? Not really. The word "better" is usually subjective, BUT when it comes to displays there is NO DOUBT that the HTC One smokes the s4 and is much superior. Read 'em and weep;



    Guess you won't be showing THAT video to your friends at work. LOL



    Marketing departments must love you MP are meaningless these days. The majority of camera comparisons between these two phones show that the HTC one takes better pictures. For most people, that's what's really important, the end result, but by all means you enjoy your mega pixels. LOL

    The bottom line of S4 VS. HTC One.... Samsung spends LOTS more money in marketing. Some people fall for that marketing. I'm happy for them, but when they try to push their 'junk science' it simply can't hold water.

    Hmm... you keep missing my point. I acknowledge that a One screen can break; my point is that the S4 breaks easier than the One. That thread provided evidence that glass breaks. The video in my post provided evidence that the S4 breaks easier than the One, and you have yet to provide evidence to refute that.

    Apparently that dude has never owned a plastic mobile phone, because to admit that would render him a hypocrite of the highest order. Since he never owned a plastic phone, since owning anything plastic is so beneath him (I'm sure the interior in his car is all aluminum) I wonder what he used for communication on the go when all mobile devices were plastic?

    I'm not a fanboy like you and the rest that trolling here
    Two things. First, just because people here have the ability to post facts which show why what you say isn't true, doesn't make them trolls. Second, as I stated before, I owned the s4. Now I own the HTC One. That doesn't make a fanboy. You don't seem to be too big on facts or definitions.


    the thread was intended for us the ones who bought the S4
    No such thread. ALL threads are open to all members, not just your friends. Everyone here has the right to know the facts of a topic at hand, not just your version of the facts. If you say ice cream is good for you, then someone else has the right to show why they feel it isn't. One sidedness only makes things worse. It's always best to put the facts on the table and let the reader decide for themselves which product is best for them. Sorry you can't handle that. Life is too short to get so stressed out over consumer electronics.

    Jeje, you have an S4, just like I have a One, funny guy this one. Facts? You are in a roll here dude, again I couldn't care less about your opinion or "facts" as I have mine and that what is important to me, I'm the one that pay my bills, and the only one that take my decisions, so I can't go wrong with whatever decision I make, eh won't you get the point here?

    Again, this is a forum, and yes, anyone can post, but there's an universal rule that say that if you go to a thread that ask for something and you just go there and don't answer the question while posting other stuff, then you are just a troll, any similarities are just a coincidence.

    Like I said, don't quote me, I don't have time to answer to this childish posts, so don't lose your time, this won't happen again it was just this one time so you weren't feel too comfortable thinking that you were right by any chance. BUT seeing this childish posts from childish posters, I know in advance that you will keep on with this, so you're welcome to do so, I will spend my time enjoying my awesome phone and watching a good movie with my family.

    If we're talking build quality and sturdiness, The One wins hands down. I don't know why anyone would waste their time arguing that. If we're talking overall phone prowess, not so fast there. I still think the s4 is the better device. And I've owned both.

    It didn't break. I suppose you don't buy glasses because if you twisted them hard enough they would break. If the glass on an S4 is an example of poor build quality where are the class action law suits, the outraged posters, the angry web site reviews? The glass on the S4 is stronger than the S3. They both have essentially the same case. Where are the same complaints from the million of S3 owners? I hope you realize that to the readers of this thread (no not your HTC soul mates) it is obvious you are grasping at straws to try and show some kind of build quality issue with the S4. I provided several examples of poor build quality issues with the HTC ONE (see post #48 in this thread). Why don't you provide me with a few claims from S4 users that their cracked screen is a result of poor build quality. Or from HTC One owners for that matter.
