HTC is bringing their One to Sprint before Samsung launches their S4

I wonder if this will effect Samsung sales of the S4 on Sprint.

Sprint sure is being slow about their LTE rollout, haven't heard any announcements of new LTE markets recently.

coming soon to towns with less than 100 population first!

It's a shame they are only getting one model, whereas AT&T is getting the 32 and 64, which are quite aggressively priced at $199 and $299. I have a feeling the international S4 is going to have the 64GB option, but not in the US..again.

I wouldn't be surprised if your right!

That was a really stupid move on HTC's part with the exclusivity! It'll effect their sales.

Samsung has the Galaxy S3 on every carrier, that's how they got such high #'s.

Not at all. I am sure everyone looking to buy a S4 or HTC One already knows which one they are going to buy.

I like the front-facing stereo speakers on the One, but I just can't get a smartphone that doesn't have removable/expandable memory & battery.

The next 10mo's will be interesting, to see how the One sells compared to the S4.

I think the One will compete well, BUT,. . .the Galaxy S line is now the IPhone of the Android world.

But hey, if the HTC ONE can steal some IPhone zombies and free them, then yayyyy!!!!

LOL not gonna happen. Phones that dont have removable/expandable memory & battery are a turn off. A phone like this wont win number 1.

Its going to be the same storya again. The S4 is going to outsell the HTC One. Very simple. They took everything customers loved about their EVO 4G and changed it and they took everything they hated and fixed it. Why cant they just keep both x.x.

---" Phones that dont have removable/expandable memory & battery are a turn off."---

For me, I find this comment rings true and the items convenient. However, I've been getting beaten up on other forums when I express my wish for these two options. Most all are from a younger age group that have not yet been caught with their pants down. Just one time having a phone die in the middle of something extremely important with no way to get to the battery, leaves one wondering: "Who's freakin stupid idea was this?"

I saw this on the Androidandme.com website.

" HTC One analyst sales
predictions


If J.P. Morgan analyst Alvin Kwock’s
numbers are right, HTC is going to
have a very hard time keeping pace
with the Samsung Galaxy S 4 this
spring. Due to imaging component
shortages, Kwock estimates that
shipments of the HTC One will range
from 500,000 to 700,000 units for the
entire month of April. It’s unclear
how long it will take for HTC’s
supplier to work out the production
kinks of the Ultrapixel camera sensor,
but the HTC One should be in very
high demand for quite some time
since Kwock claims service provider
are currently seeing enough demand
for the HTC One to move 2-3 million
units per month."

True. I'm not going with the plastic and cartoon pentile screen this time. I want better build quality and pure whites on a screen. It's not so much the pixels that bother. I can hardly seen them. It's the over saturated colors and a bluish tinge that comes with Samsung's AMOLED pentile screen. It's still on the GS4 too unfortunately.

I dont mind the screen it is gorgeous on the Galaxy phones. Same on the HTC phone. I guess everyone has different taste but the general public all agree on a must have for phones removable battery and expandable memory at least with the Android phones.
