yes because we have never seen iphones being shipped with light leaks around the displays and yellow tinge when it should be white because of glue being improperly cured before being shipped to customers! note my extreme sarcasm here, everybody has issues with every launch, nobody is perfect even samsung and apple.

A lot or people choose brown tan wallets, bags and other accessories... it makes sense to bring out a leather-coloured variant. However, I'll pass judgement on its looks when it comes out .

Dear friend, sarcasm is what htc uses to trick people into buying their products like the boom sound feature is s**t!! id rather my galaxy s4 speakers more loader... samsung fans and users (majority of the world) dont rely on sarcasm

First of all, touchwiz does lag because of the useless bloatware that is infested within it . . . secondly, gorilla glass shatter easily(no matter what the gen is) unlike sony's shatterproof glass or asashi's dragon trail glass. . . thirdly, the octacore doesn't work simultaneously, it works more like a dual quadcore . . . fourthly, htc one's speaker is far more better than samsung's( there's also nokia's 925 if you want to compare more) . . . lastly s4 will only fell premuim if you buy a cover for it. . .

very true... octo-core is really just the same as normal quadcores... but idk why those samsung fanboys doesnt get how those octo-cores work... they think all the 8 CPUs work together...

Arm still have there A57 SOC CPU TO BE ON PAR! What are you talking about? The Exynos has 5 range of Cpus, which are:E5410 entry level, E5420 standard, E5430 above standard, E5440 performance, and finally E5450 which runs at 3.0Ghz. So it's either on par with Baytrail, or faster! ®
