It looks like a mix of a Galaxy Note II and an Ativ S... Could that be S IV?

Samsung market share = 27%

5.8%?

Maybe only in US

I read they earned 1% of profit on the phone market worldwide and the rest is sammy n apple.

More market share doesn't mean they build the best phones. HTC sells only mobile phones and they doesnt have much money to throw at huge marketing campaigns. Once they will start marketing their products, Samsung should afraid of their biggest competition, as the giant is going to wake up.

Advt.is great as always. Appreciate for the concept.

Yeah, right... HTC One looks like a BB Z10 and / or iPhone 5 on the front, the back is EXACTLY the same as in the Sony Xperia P. Check your facts well before trolling.

Yea I guess its only fair that everyone has to copy now since samsung done it so much its become a trend..Its the only way for some to keep up now a days..but does it make it right? I dont think so... sad thing is, you people Dont mind as long as u get what u want

Everybody copies. Even Apple! Remember LG Prada?? I buy what I think is the best for me and the use I will give to the phone. What I look for is not the design, but the software and how fast it works and how can it handle different tasks at the same time. :)

Perhaps you are some way right with the design materials used in both handsets but as always sometimes its what inside that counts most,and after seeing personally how many Htc one s and one x's having come back instore with faults and component issues I have my reservations over buying any Htc handset again.

You are bro...but you will get lot of dislikes from lot fanboys as usual....even I have a samsung galaxy model, I would always rate HTC's build quality which is always superior but no one accepts due to ego's...btw fanboys dont question why i have galaxy....it is a gift !!!

because, in sammobile, they posted some large images.

if its Note 2, then why did sammobile posted it as "S4-spotted.png"??? i don't think so....

23. _Bone_ (Posts: 2126; Member since: 29 Oct 2012)


Because they look at the same thing we do and make the judgement for themselves like we do. It looks too big for S3 size which is the same as the S4, but maybe the dude has a small head. :D

I still thinking it's Note 2. We cant see 3 holes for led, voice , kamera so I assume it could be Note 2. Not only that, if you remember from last Unpacked when we had similar teaser and when we were thinking we have S3, Samsung confirmed that it's not S3 in the video....

Pretty awesome ad, it has a movie feel to it, biulds excitement, .def ntly100 times better that those lame dancing advertisements from Microsoft

That ad looked like it was put together by the kids at PS 101. The Microsoft ad is pretty stupid and fluffy (I see people dancing, but a tablet computer is in there somewhere), but using the Pulp Fiction briefcase effect? That's pretty poor. There's a phone inside the box, not some mysterious treasure.

Pulp Fiction didn't start the "glowing container effect". Been used time and time again. Kiss Me Deadly 1955. Repo Man 1980.

Move along.
