Sony is good, Xperia Z is very good, but its interface (UI) which Sony uses is always lagging when I am using it in the stores, I have restarted it, cleared RAM and even after that it is lagging. If you would put an another kernel and ROM on it, then the phone would be awsome.
But still Xperia Z was a huge step for Sony, they have improved.

I don´t know what phone I would take, they are all awsome, and they are too big for me to hold comfortably. Nexus 4 is very good, my friend has one and it is awsome, HTC One is not yet in stores for me to try out and neither is SGS4, and G Pro is way too big, even if would be awsome phone, it will still be to big.
All these new phones are awsome btw.

It looks so classy and elegant, I have xperia Z and every time I use it I feel so cool especially in our classroom. All my classmates are amazed with it's camera. I'm waiting to get GS4 and HTC one to replace my GS3 and htc one x+. :D then I will give a non-biased review about the camera of these phones. Because camera is always the first thing that being compared in smartphone battles like this, and I never saw A unbiased review. The Verge=iPhone 5 PA=samsung galaxies Android police=HTC ONE And Xperia Z. Never saw a good reason for LG phones to be compared to these three beasts.

So, you're waiting to get the Galaxy S4 and HTC One? Good luck with that! :)

Btw, I just ordered HTC one :D. It's so f**king awesome. I can't say it's better that Xperia Z but it's audio... HOLY MOTHER OF DR.DRE IT'S SO CLEAR!!! but xperia Z's camera is better. Just need to adjust things :D But HTC one isn't that bad. It's just that when I took pictures backlight. it's a little bit s**tty and hard to adjust :) waiting for GS4

Its okay, he will get 30 days to return it like everybody else, which will bankrupt HTC and kill them before they make another phone thats even more of an iphone clone by just including 1 button that does home with a 4" screen with everything in the same place as an iphone.

all of them are great phones each one has an advantage over the other for me i would prefer to choose the S4 HTC is a great phone no doubt about that but battery and camera didn't impress me (according to what i had seen with my friend's HTC One, sorry for the bad language)

I think the S4 is well rounded but I wasn't blown away by it at all. I still have the SII for sprint and I think I'll end up going to the S4 because I know my way around it and the SII has been very good to me. I like the One and Z much more from a design perspective though. I'll wait until Google announces the motorola nexus and if it's not better than what's out now then I'll get the S4

I have pre ordered my s4 mainly due to the SD and battery being removable... Will never get a phone that doesn't have SD slot and like removable battery not because I change batteries but because of extended battery accessories...these phones are so thin that buying an extended battery doesn't make it too big...example the s3 has an official 3000mah battery that comes with a back cover that makes the phone 11mm thick but with the tapered edges it feels smaller and with the extra 30gm added heft it actually feels better...people keep thinking removable batteries are useless but They are not..my brother has the htc one and it really does feel great and is snappy and if it a least had a SD card slot I may have been tempted also I do like the bigger screen in a smaller size device too.

We should see a torture test soon but the S4 is a lot more durable than the HTC One which is a magnet for scratches.

I recommnd htc one to my brother, coz i will borrow it always haha
Im havin d gs4.. sure htc one is d most beautful if d screen is off, when d screen is on, i will clamor for less bezels so d screen will offer me more than d rest.. and i believe reviews. When d note3 is out ill dtched my note2 and give my s4 to my mother :)
My sister already dtched her 2week XZ coz it has so many software bugs esp wifi, batt, heat and cam issues and d speaker is crappy esp when u take advntage w/ ip57 and shes not comfortable holding it.. me too, it feels so large (dont get me wrong, thats my opinion) coz of d sharp edges

Patiently waiting for cybershot+walkman xperia w/ stylus so i can change my decsion abt n3 lol

My vote is on HTC One. I prefer the design over hardware by a little bit and the two hardware specs are too similar if we're not talking about the dimension and screen size. Software is not a big deal to me since I end up flashing custom ROMs on it.

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..

I went to the AT&T store yesterday and played with the HTC One for about 30 minutes. It's really nice but got a little hot in hand. I wasn't that impressed with the boom sound. It sounds good but not as loud as some of the videos I saw on the net. I brought my B&W C5s with me to check out the sound through the headphone jack. It's sounds much better then my GSII. I thought the screen looked fantastic. Took a few pictures and videos and seemed to be okay but nothing to brad about. Sense is okay but I prefer the flexibility of TW.

I'm happy I got to play with it but don't think it's for me. I'm concerned about how hot it got while I used it (mainly the edges). I would be dearly missing my 64gb sdxc too. In the end I think I'm on just gonna get the S4. Both phones are very nice and it's personal preference at this stage. Competition = win win for consumers.

This is what I have been saying forever. Also the international s4 is a much more powerful device, the one lags in games the s2 can play fine because the software is bad.

I expect a high return rate. Anyone else expecting this to be news in about a month?

People on here are stupid lol.. .it says which phones. Which is plural which means more than one. With that being said, the best android phones are (in my opinion ) the htc one and gs4 . Either phone will be amazing . Forget what htc or Samsung fanboys say about the other.
