I will admit that The SGS3 was the best phone of 2012
But this year will be a different story
The GS4 will sell well ,but only because of the brand name
HTC One is the one for me :)

Coming from someone who looks for the features first, followed by a close second...overall phone life, the HTC loses immediately. I hope everyone has fun complaining about the One's battery failing and having to get the whole phone sent in for repair, while the S4 is just one small online purchase away from a much longer lifespan. I've been through 2 Inspire batteries before I got smart and bought an Anker online for $8. NOT going through that with a non-removable battery. And have I mentioned the horrible updates from HTC? Going from my old Inspire to the S4 will be breathtaking.

Actually The verge rate the S4 8 out of 10! and they mentioned that the best things on S4 the screen and camera unless if your not going use the S4 camera at night cause htc one win at night shoot.

Sorry I have to agree with teerex and it seems a lot of others do as well. WHy would anyone want a metal phone. They dent ive never seen one that didnt dent. Everyone complains about plastic even tho its not a plastic its a diferent material all together that si more flexible and reliable. And last but not least. If the phone is not on all major carriers then there is no way it will come close to being one of the best phones of the year and the One not being on vzw is a big flaw especially since vzw is the biggest carrier in the US.

with the s4 who said u can use the phone without touching it? that only goes as far as flipping home screens or pages. lets say if u have to text, how would u text without touching the keyboard? or lets say u have to enter an address of a website. Dont brag beyond the realistic point! And who said if u touch ur phone then u need screen protector? screen protector is only good for old phones without gorilla glass, nowadays the screen glass is good enuff to resist scratches. If ur talking about dropping and breaking the screen, a screen protector doesnt help either, it's just a piece of plastic.

Yes, S4 is too similar to S3, which I never liked design wise.

After having the S3 and keeping the LG Optimus G I wll go with the LG Optimos G Pro. There is something about LG that I like better.

I just can't trust them. Too many LG devices have had poor performances and durability in my circle of friends. Glad someone has had good experiences with them.

Though the s4 didnt surprise people with its features and design, its still a tad better than one anyway

The reason why one is more welcoming is because of its so called ultrapixel camera and boomsound and the fact that htc hasnt been the best recently

i dont know why you are getting dislikes but i fully agree. its time we get a change and
htc has brought that. a slicker desgin, FINALLY! front speakers! let alone them being stereo! and
they didnt make an awesome camera because 4mp is only good for object less than 10 feet away.
BUT they atleast brought the knowledge to consumer about how cameras work(sensor being bigger means better lightening. and then there is the aperture(smaller is better).).

HTC One loses to the S4 camera, the S4 has an Exmor RS 13mp camera in it, it is no slouch.

I'm on Verizon, so I don't have very many options to replace my S3 with (S4, iPhone 5 or 5S, Moto X hopefully). Having said that, I hope the One comes to Verizon, and if not, I'll hold out for the Moto X.

Yea I'm on verizon as well. It would be sweet if the ONE drops on vzw. Love that body just hate the speakers. Plastic on the S4 bugs the hell out of me.

The One isn't coming to Verizon because the Droid DNA is a slightly worse HTC One.

aluminum is not stainless steel bro.. And plastics don't stain, scratch, dent, and heavy as aluminium. And S4 is not made of cheap plastics but with high quality plastics called poly-carbonate, which is a heavy duty durable carbon polymer..

"poly-carbonate,...carbon polymer" -- fancy way of saying plastic

If Sprint carried the 64gb HTC one out of the gate, I probably would have gone with it, but I am going for the S4 based upon the expandable storage and reuse of my existing g3 phone kit, docks, etc.

I voted Sony Xperia Z, and I'm using it right now!

I must say that it is the best smartphone I've ever used! Gorgeous, durable, best!

I love it! Sony always make me believe! :)

Wendy. I noticed when articles talks about LG, you say HTC, Sony rocks. When posts talks about Sony, you say Samsung, Apple are awesome. Is there something wrong with you?
