India is one of these countries, not a developed nation 100% yet but an Indian would take Samsung over HTC anyday because the specs.

today i tested HTC One for like 5 mins and guys,WOWWWWWWWWWWWW....

that handset even looks premium from a distance! i have ordered my GS4 and it will be sent to me tomorrow but i will definitely be getting One!
i just wish HTC works more on its marketing department like sammy! i bet it would give GS4 even more tough competition if it markets its HTC One!

Isn't that what everyone said last year about the HTC "One" lineup?

I'm just waiting for them to do HTC One+ like they did with HTC One X+

ph00ny has a point. The original 'One' series was supposed to be a completely new beginning for HTC. What does it say about HTC since they've had to rebrand and revamp the interface 2 times in a row?

its clear if htc really want more than samsung must prepare itself for a great advertise..
about phone one is the best situation for htc in order to beats s4..
every thing is perfect in one..many top technology sites say the one is best since now..

It's all in the name man, it's all in the name.
Samsung Galaxy series has been doing great the gone years and to an average person who doesn't know what's in and out of both these devices will definitely pick Samsung.

If you're so crazy all about that stuff, why not just unlock the phone's bootloader

I'm sorry, I just had to chuckle because of you saying that XZ is a bad phone.

You can't say it's bad but it definitely is not the best though. Try soaking it to water with those two and see who survives. :)

The Camera problem seems to be the problem with it.

With that said, I do not own the Xperia Z but it's little brother, Xperia ZL and it's just a tad better in terms of practical hardware, software and size.

Once the GS4 and HTC Once comes in to East Malaysia, I would really like to test one of them.
The problem with the society is that people won't give other brands a try. They always go for Samsung or Apple. I'm not hating the brand, just the people here. And I can already sense that people will say that HTC One sucks because it only has 4mp. My gawd I hate my society.

The camera is a software issue. On S4 and One are hardware issue. S4 suffer from purple screen and overheating. One suffers from built quality/defects, gaps, power button are flat, and the touch button doesn't response.

Yes, because that 2% of market share phablets have just has HTC shaking in their boots. Actually, not even 2%, because 5" displays were included in the phablet category even though they aren't really phablets.

So what would you call htc butterfly which has a 5" display? Is that a phablet too?
