    You better get your facts straight the one has a 4.7 screen

    They meant with apps that are not coded correctly you have the black menu bar across the bottom of the display which takes up a decent bit of screen real estate. This issue is being addressed in the 4.2.2 update though with the option to hold the home key to display the menu.

    Play Music sucks for me because it is so troublesome. I would just use rocket player.

    I will give Rocket Player a shot and see if that solves the problem on the S4. Play works fine on the One.

    I feel you about the menu button. It's one of the main reasons I stick with Galaxy phones. Really hate seeing a black bar take up real estate when there is no menu option.

    4.2.2 has already fixed that.

    I'm in Canada, and my S4 has had 4.2.2 since I got it a few weeks ago!

    Any one can correct me if I'm wrong but I believe the one in the us is still on 4.1. At least it was when I was trying to choose between the 2.

    Great comparison OP.

    No one responded over at nexus section but I sold my S4 last night, picking up my 16GB nexus 4. I'm just bored and want to try Stock Android.

    I admit hTc can be at times a PITA* but at the end you're holding & looking at it and this is where the One is amazing at.

    *Lack or Poorly Placed Power & Wake Buttons
    *I love TouchWiz's Left-to-Right Swipe to access Messaging & Calling
    *Lack of microSD, means I have no control of Storage. I can't change it to ExFat to transfer my HD (>4GB) files.

    Maybe there's some confusion. I was talking about the HTC one having 4.1.2 not the s4.

    You perhaps did not read what I posted, since referring to the usable space when using the ui and apps. The nav bar only goes away for video and stays for browsing and apps. You are right though, since I thought it was a 4.8 display. The actual useable space for apps is closer to 4.2".

    That is a relatively huge difference from a 5" display. Especially since the same size device.

    The navigation bar takes up so much space?

    About .5" diagonally. Compare the two devices next to each other to see the real difference. Is usable display space is not an issue, no harm no foul.

    That said, seems silly both being the same size, yet far less useable display on the One.

    This is correct. I used both devices and the One's screen starts off .3" smaller and gets smaller in various apps that have the dreaded menu bar. It's most notable on popular apps like Facebook and Angry Birds. Supposedly, it is being address in the 4.2.2 update but when that update is coming to US carriers is anyone's guess.

    Kudos to HTC and getting rid of the bar as an option! I wonder if the Google version will have this? My guess is no. Google thinks everybody absolutely loves the bar taking space up.

    Thank you for the link. This is a great move at the right time. I'm sure by the end of the month US carriers will be releasing the update or know a date. Alot of one's have already received it though in other areas of the world.

    I have started to experience random dropped calls on the S4. When trying to re-connect the phone does not want to actually complete the call unless I reboot. I had similar issues with the GS2. I have not experienced this issue with the HTC One. I am happy with the voice quality on both phones.

    I also find that S View (or whatever the feature is where the phone is supposed to not dim the display when you are looking at it, scroll/stop scrolling based on where you are viewing, etc) works haphazardly at best. When it works at all.

    I really want to like the device but the more I use it the more let down I feel. The big winners on the S4 for me are the screen size, the calendar widget and most likely the camera. I need to use the camera more but believe it will live up to expectations. These three items are making it hard for me to commit to the HTC One despite my feelings that overall the HTC One is a better device for my needs. If AT&T does not roll out 4.2.2 by the end of the month that may be enough to make the S4 the winner. The black bars on some of the screens really, really bug me. Here the phone has a great display and the highest PPI (I believe) and you want to waste too much of the screen with an ugly black bar.

    I was pretty happy with the HTC Ones battery life but my subjective feel is that the S4 may have a bit better life the way I use the phones.

    If the S4 is the winner I will try a different unit.

    I agree that nav bars on small displays suck! I just wish the hubris plagued Android team realize users would like the feature BUILT IN TO THE OS as an option to hide it. This is the one aspect that iOS is better than Android- no display space taken up by a fixed nav bar.
