I think the One is 2013s sleeper phone. The GS IV is going to make the sales, but I think the One is the better offering. Shame that it is not available on VZW.

I think the One will do well, definitely not gs4 sales but a step in the right direction for htc. Word of mouth is pretty powerful and early reviews seem positive for the one.

The One is a gorgeous phone. It wins the premium feeling, it wins the design, it wins the camera (Ultrapixel). And yes, I agree with you, the One is the better offering.

The Galaxy S4 only wins the benchmark, the features and the popularity of Samsung.

Well for features u can use Apple's ideology to have both phones tie, use 3rd party apps to make up for any of the missing features. With that, im sure both phone pretty much equal out in term of features except for the airview and air gesture crap since that requires an extra sensor. But how big of a deal is that air whatever thing? My theory is, features are super similar, buy the phone that looks sexy.

But some of the (3rd party) features from the Galaxy S4, is not available at the Play Store and requires some sort of sensor.......

You should have talked about night mode! And how the ISO setting in night mode is turned down, to increase the shutter time, which in turn leads to much less noise and nicer pictures! Auto mode is for the "fastest" shots, having incredibly low shutter speed times with higher ISOs, while manual pictures can prolong these shutter speeds and decrease the ISO :)

No worries, a thorough camera comparison with night and indoor shots is coming :)

By the way, just wanted to say that I believe they are selling the experience more than anything :) Hence why they were so into ZOE and their microphone capabilities! Revolutionary camera hardware is still a few years away in my opinion, so they decided to make a better low light performer so that it will perform great all around, because people will want the best photos in any scenario! Which also ties into their social theme right now with blinkfeed etc, through surveys they believe that people use social networking more than anything, which doesnt even require more than 2mpx at max for FB or IG. No one prints off photos taken from their phone, so a sacrifice for stellar performance instead of less noise when zooming in only on daylight photos was a tradeoff they were willing to take.
Just my opinion..

Hopefully you guys include proper low light shots unlike the GS4 review where the low light shot was just an overcast day.

Honestly after i saw a lot of camera comparison between Iphone 5, htc one, S4 and Nokia 920. I hate to say that cause i'm not Sam fan but S4 camera still better than htc one specially the 1080p video, but htc one still better than S4 at night video 1080p.

Well if camera pics don't come out how you expect them to, there should be app available which should not be cheap but high qualty which lots you edit and add or remove aswell as photo editing: mean to say an app that costs$20 or more©

Unavailable due to the fact that in order for apps to optimize cameras, they have to go in depth into the API which companies dont want them snooping around on.

"at present the Android camera APIs simply doesn’t expose enough for third party camera apps to be very powerful."

I can't believe why so many people are falling for this ultrapixel gimmick....it's nothing but a glorified pre 2010 camera technology

So many idiots falling for this phone. There going to be angry and I will accept your thumbs down for now till you come back begging HTC for a refund. The hardware is good, the camera looks bad (view images in fullscreen on atleast 1080p screen), the battery lifeis junk, the metal is poor build quality, the phone runs very hot, the phone screen is beaten by the s4.

Have you even used it? All reviewers are saying it has a great battery life and the buil quality is one of a kind. Plus the camera is actually pretty good, just not great. I haven't heard from the reviews that it runs hot so where is your information from?

When gaming the device uses so much battery that it drains faster than it can charge. To help "fix" this the software closes background apps without asking you to hide the fact that the thing is a battery hog.

Reviewers are sometimes persuaded by the company to give good reviews. If history is any indicator on this phone, it will be a p.o.s.

Ask anyone that works for a cell phone company what phones get returned the most or have the most failures.

Those are some great photography tips. I will try some of those with my 808. I wish the 808 had the Continuous Shot mode though. Thanks for the post.

Anandtech has already done a few tests Lumia vs one and when it comes to OIS Lumia wins hands down (for example at the film on the bridge where 920 superiority is so obvious that it needs no further explanation) Htc copied Nokia's idea and made it wrong. Typical.
