HTC One selling well, but not as well as the Samsung Galaxy S4

0. phoneArena 05 May 2013, 01:55 posted on

A survey of 20 AT&T and Sprint stores in Los Angeles reveals that the HTC One is selling well, but not as well as the Samsung Galaxy S4; despite a nearly two week head start for HTC's new Android flagship model, the Samsung Galaxy S4 has out sold its aluminum clad rival and has been returned fewer times than the HTC One has...

So LG hasn't copied Samsung with their mobile designs?
Have you seen the Note 2 and Optimus G Pro?

It's not fanboyism when you can actually put up a valid argument.

Of course I've seen it before! Even though LG copied Samsung (design) or Samsung copied LG (smart features), they won't sue each other, cuz they are KOREAN.

I totally agree with you,people just follow the crowd when they get a new phone,that's why a lot of manufacturers get overshadowed. But I'm happy to see quite a few xz and one lately

Although kclgphilsbsa has some issues with grammar, his comment is pretty clear!

via PhoneArena

Like Jason2k13, ashisharbola and jackhammer91 said before, these features were released after S4 announcement. LG has no ground to call Samsung copycat. The G Pro is the carbon copy of the NOTE II.
They also tried to replicate Samsung's Multiwindow with Qslide, which is an epic fail actually.

Anyway, get your facts right before making false claims!

Lol see?? can u and d 4 behind u make a valid argument or response with what wev said?
Whats d problem if sleepingOZ is one of samsung's students haha atleast he can provide valid arguments lol not just a response with "ur a paid troll,, the artcle was paid by samsung, the artcle is bias, samsung copied(no valid evdnce), cheap plastic, samdung, gimmicks"

Whats worse:

Someone who replied w/ valid arguments
Or
Someone who commentd first in an 'artcle that praised samsung' w/ troll words or bashing samsung w invalid arguments

Samsung was first to introduce smart features! It all started with Popup Play, then LG came out with that crappy Q Slider, ever since they've been just poking at each other about it

Honda and Mazda??
Man, that's basically the same thing!

Here's a proper comparison: Galaxy is like a Volkswagen Golf, and HTC One is like a Volvo V40 - Gorgeous, great car in the same class.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volvo_V40

But it can only dream about reaching the sales of the Golf

It's totally naive to think One could challenge S4 in sales numbers.
Samsung will smash records again, no matter how good the rivals are - just look at the news of delays and shortages("overwhelmig and unprecedented demand") in some markets despite the humongous initial production effort by Samsung.

However, within its own realm the HTC one is a major success already, and a turnaround for HTC.
Even if it sells 10 million units this year it will be by far their biggest hit since the original Desire.
And I believe it will sell even more than that

Exactly. It's ridiculous to compare HTC and Samsung sales anymore - that game ended when the GS3 arrived on all carriers. I see them everywhere now, and you know what? I don't want one. It's become the Honda of phones - highly competent, good enough for everyone, but plasticky and a bit boring.

HTC is fighting for relevance and profitability, not the sales crown. They're the Mazda of phones. Those looking for style and substance and some neat features like stereo speakers and OIC will appreciate it. Screw the sales figures, I just want competition.

comparing phones to cars is a very difficult thing to do accurately. i've been known to try it myself but i quit that. xD

Maybe in Europe, not North America. Hell no would I compare Samsung to Volkswagen. But comparing phones to cars is a bit pointless. There's a best phone for each of us, whereas the Prius is clearly the best car for everyone.

A friend of mine has a dead pixel problem in his htc one, he doesn't notice it bcoz it only appears when you browse webpages or view certain images that has a red ,brown or purple tinge to it.

I exchange my Note 2 for 3 stuck pixels, no f**king way I would allow for a single stuck/dead pixel on a $600 + phone.

S4 is better
Bigger screen, bigger removable battery, and sdcard slot while shorter, lighter, and thinner than HTC ONE
FYI: faster processor, better ram DDR3 and gorilla glass 3

Vs
HTC ONE Boom sound

Most people will buy a case, so a metal body is pointless.
