Htc one is like one of the best looking smartphones ever (with Nokia N9, Nokia L925, iphone4 and Sony xperia z/1 IMO) so all its shortcomings are compromised!!!

Removing Touchwiz from S4 will increase its performance.. Its evident on S4 google play edition.

in the battery drain, I assume battery drain being lower is better? If so, I think the lower framerate of the HTC ONE is bearable if someone wants to game with more time between charges. The only signfiicant framerate difference shown here was for Deer Hunter, and the One still had a very management FPS in the 40s. Otherwise... yea, like to see it be justified LOL.

Any apps that can use 4 cores to encode video to test the CPU? They should do this fps test with the g2 note 3 and nexus 5.

I switched from the One to the S4 due to overall performance...I thought the One would be better day to day but I was wrong and switched to S4 and never looked back..the "one"thing that i liked about the One was the speakers but the S4 speakers aren't bad at all

Just buy the iphone 5S, and all your problems will be solved.

Why? It's running the archaic iOS.

I had both and they were both smooth in my experience.

Touchwiz is downright putrid in every way.

I have used both the S4 and the One, they are both awesome phones, Whilst HTC One is smoother in user experience, better looking, better mics and sound output/input, Better screen (Voted the best screen of 2013 for a reason) The Galaxy S4 has better battery life, so many tweaks and software goodies, a lot better camera. Hating on one of those two phones is retarded, they both have amazing pros, and have their cons when compared. It all revolves around personal preference. Grow up Haters.
