HTC One vs. Galaxy S4 -- Please Advise


Aug 3, 2013, 9:50 AM
Hi Everyone,

I currently have an HTC EVO Design 4G. I have had it for two years and am ready to upgrade. I am considering the HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S4. They are the same price.

I use my phone for texts, email, web (mainly checking the news and Google searches), photos, calls, and calendar (pretty much in that order). I occasionally watch videos on Youtube.

I loved my current phone because it was a fairly easy transition for me to a smartphone. Not too big, not too bulky, and easy to learn.

I would really like opinions on which phone would be the best for me given what I use it for. Thanks in advance!!!

Have you made your decsion yet? I owned both phones. I ended up switching from the GS4 to the One.

Based on what you want to do with your phone, I'd say go with HTC One. For me 4.7" is that sweet spot. Not too big, not too small either. You're already coming from an HTC device so the One may not throw that much of a learning curve for you. You're already familar with Sense.

I switched from the GS4 to the One because I couldn't deal with the screen on the GS4. It was hard to see in daylight and it had an ugly yellow tinge (typical of AMOLED displays) It annoys the $hit out of me though. I need pure whites on a display on that's what the One gives me. Plus daylight viewing on the One is great!

The GS4 was also too laggy. I think Sams...

Thanks, JJ. I really appreciate the detailed response. I haven't fully decided yet, but I am leaning more and more toward the HTC One.
