Poll results: LG G2, Samsung Galaxy S4 or HTC One: which one would you pick?

Poll results: LG G2, Samsung Galaxy S4 or HTC One: which one would you pick?
Just last week, the LG G2 launched kicking off the fall season of new phones and it wowed us with a nearly bezel-less front panel, a non-conventional placement of the volume buttons on its back and the latest Snapdragon 800.

Right after the announcement, we wanted to make a quick reality check - is this newest hardware enough to distract you from the already available best selling Androids - the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC One. Or would you still pick one of them over the new LG G2?

The results are now in and the LG G2 won most of your votes. If you had to vote with your dollar right now, a majority of you, nearly 40% would get the LG G2 over any other device on the market.

However, the HTC One came up second as its gorgeous unibody aluminum design, UltraPixel camera and BoomSound camera obviously are stand unique in Android land and 23% of you would still get the One. The Galaxy S4 was a very close third and only 13.7% of voters had other favorite devices at the moment.

Take a look at the results right below and brace yourself for an even hotter fall - we expect a downpour new devices to start appearing in the beginning of September.

non of them i'd go for xperia Z, simply cos its design is way better than any of them

is design more important than display for example for you?

The display and camera quality is already good after some firmware updates. It is also inexpensive than the three smartphones mention in the poll. I'm guessing Fernandezxc is someone who does not care about viewing angles. But then again, who am I to judge.

Well if u r going to spend cash, why spend on something that looks just like the rest (galaxies). I would prefer the xperia cos it stands out from the crowd and anyway i prefer if the viewing angles are less, gives u some privacy

I would go for all 5™ Cause all 5 of them are great devices. Obviously the G2 has a better Cpu.

for me I'll pick the Z ULTRA and will wait for U.S. release unless I see the HONAMI

I already have the Xperia ZL. But if I were to choose other than the phone I have, it would be the HTC One or the Sony Honami simply because the HTC One is already cheaper than the Exynos version of the Galaxy S4 and it's features and somewhat impressive call quality. The Honami because Sony tend to price their phones cheaper in the Asian market (Malaysia specifically) and their design and features although I cannot judge because it is not released yet buy seeing the rumours, I expect good things.

If I were to go back to android, I'd get an HTC ONE. I know the camera isn't cracked up to be what they promised, but the screen is beautiful, sense 5 is actually enticing for once, and the construction and design of the phone is, well beautiful. One of the best looking phones to date.

Assuming there is unlock method found for my VZW GS4, I will stick with my GS4. I am not a fan of touchwiz and would much rather have a vanilla 4.3 ROM. The G2 looks awesome, but I am also not a huge fan of how LG has skinned their UI. But if an unlock method is not found within the next couple of months, I will seriously consider the G2.

Yes, that is for root only. There is no known UNLOCK method currently available for VRUAME7, which is what I am currently running.http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2359090

Wait for the international version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE Advanced with Snapdragon 800.

Will it be like the exynos octa version and not have the right bands for the US carriers?

I would say probably the G2, then the HTC One. I don't really care for the GS4.

sad part of this poll for htc is being number #2 in this poll isnt equating to the sales numbers for them. gs4 is selling alot more than htc one.

That's because the average smartphone consumer knows little about these phones, and the Galaxy series has a reputation as being the best (and they very well may be). It's the same reason people still buy iPhones. Those of us in the know weigh our decisions on other factors.

Lol, so you're telling me that LG G2 will sell double the gs4 because of the poll tells that?

23. Shatter

LG would be liucky to get 1/10th of Samsungs sales.

28. Bilpocalypse

I don't believe any of us actually said that. Quite the opposite in fact. What I said was that I would choose the LG or the One over the GS4, but the general public would not.

Of course it isn't. This poll is on a tech website for phone techies.. we know our phones and what we want. We aren't the average consumer. If this was a public poll taken out on the street, I the results would be MUCH different. On sites like this, these polls follow the HW specs really. On the street, the polls follow the marketing. :P

surprisingly people prefer lg g2 & htc one over s4 but it won't happen actually because lg don't release it worldwide soon & overpriced it and previous number shows s4 selling better than one

1 word: MARKETING. EVERYBODY knows Samsungs phones - who knows about LG? (average consumer)

Sprint customers do, b/c we have so little choice and they carry a fair number of LG relative to everything everything else.

The average consumer may know more than you are giving them credit for regarding Knowing about LG. Many regular consumers coming from a feature phone know quite a bit about the LG feature phones , which were quite popular and given good reviews by customers. So they are liable to just choose the same brand in a Smartphone. Not many regular users know about Samsung either. As they don't keep up with the tech world.

People dont always buy the phone they vote for in polls ,a lot of these people still end up buying the S4 when they arrived at the store.
