Samsung Galaxy S 4 vs HTC One vs Sony Xperia Z specs comparison

0. phoneArena 14 Mar 2013, 19:58 posted on

Each of these has some unique hardware features - the Galaxy S 4 comes with a one-of-a-kind 1080p AMOLED display and a bucketload of sensors, including for temperature, the HTC One sports an amplified dual-speaker system at the front, and the Z you can dunk in your bathtub, so which do you think will be winning hearts and minds by the time the holiday warriors appear?

HTC one or Xperia Z for me - prefer design over continuity

People need to stop the DEEP fanboyism.

Honestly all these phones are all amazing and are equal on many levels. To me there is NO clear choice winner or top dog. Each have certain characteristics/features that seperate them and make them great. Be glad you have many choices now a days.

To each their own.

Why are people so obsessed with the design? Aren't you gonna use a case anyways? I agree gs4 looks like bigger version of s3 and has the worst design of all but in terms of features and specs s4 stands at the top.

Looks like sammy removed the other color options, did it not sell well on s3 and note 2? Anyways, that battery life is amazing, the phone can last much longer now

I am eyeing XZ after 4 months for 3 reasons:

(1) Currently they seem to have some issues as devices are going dead.
(2) To see if they do deliver S/W upgrade.
(3) Price would sink faster as compared to SAME-sung and HTC

Cmon dude, they added a freaking thermometer. How is that the same? XD

A thermometer you probably wouldn't use. It's useless if you can't dunk the S4 in water to check how hot/cold it is. I don't have a single idea how you can use the thermometer actually. So it's another useless feature.

Someone say rectal =-O
Actually there are plenty of times where a thermometer would be nice... but with all the other ways that Samsung failed to write us someone in Korea will be receiving a gs4 rectally.

Not really. They all have good point and bad point that makes them different.

S4 ecxel the competiton with a better battery (removable) and killer specifications

Yes removal battery is a plus. My Wife's phone we thought went dead but before deciding to buy a new one told her to get a new battery and check ... and it worked ... so removable battery is definitely a big PLUS point. Actually this keep pushing me towards SAME-sung all the time :)
