Registration for HTC One $100 trade-in offer extended to April 4th

Registration for HTC One $100 trade-in offer extended to April 4th
Last month, we told you about HTC's $100 trade-in offer for those purchasing the OEM's new Android flagship, the HTC One. The rules are pretty much foolproof. Pre-register to take part in the offer, and then when the HTC One becomes available, you buy it. Then you send in to HTC the proof of purchase for the HTC One, along with your old smartphone, to receive a Visa gift card in the amount of $100 or the value of your old phone, whichever is higher.

HTC is extending the date you have to pre-register for the offer to April 4th. While the company says that it is due to the "Overwhelming response" from potential HTC One buyers, it also might have something to do with the delays that have pushed back the launch of the HTC One. Another factor might have been yesterday's introduction of the Samsung Galaxy S 4 as those who are choosing between the two smartphones waited to see what Samsung's new flagship would offer.

Whatever you may say, The Galaxy S4 is on the front page of every phone company you may know, It will sell much more than your premium HTC One. Its a personal preference, go get your HTC One, enjoy your premium finish for a week, wait for updates forever and STFU!

That is because you won't see a difference after the update other than the base of the android on sammy devices.

Samsung selling point is not hardware or built quality, the secret is the price. For example i can get a S3 for $480 but if i want buy a iPhone i need to spent $680 & for Nokia Lumia 920 around $690. People know all Samsung's product are made using glossy toy grade plastic. but like them because of the price point of view.

Maybe outside of the US. In the US, everyone buys with contract so all high end phones come in at the $200 mark. Therefore, I don't think this argument makes sense at least in the states. Also, Lumia 920 is only $50-$100 on contract and only $450 off contract. Therefore it is actually the cheapest, and has seen a decent amount of sales because of that. I actually think Samsung sells well simply because of their marketing, people see ads mocking the iphone and trying to make it seem cool to own a Samsung. It literally using Apple's strategy against them! Also, the large screens(with small bezels keeping the overall phone size down) tend to sell better because people think they are getting more for their money.

Who cares what benchmark their phone gets? As long as the experience is smooth and responsive I could care less.... This is definitely one thing android fans don't understand about the iPhone. Either way I think the HTC One looks very sexy, but I like the SIV due to the smaller bezel leading to a smaller phone and the larger battery.

Except no amount of software can fix the horrible button placement on the HTC One. I guess you can add on screen buttons but that would make it look bad if you had both on screen and capacitive buttons.

Why settle for just power (Samsung) when you can have beauty AND power (HTC One)?
