The Samsung Galaxy S 4 won't be the year's only hot smartphone

As you've probably heard already, the Samsung Galaxy S 4 got announced last week, destined to hit the shelves of all major wireless carriers you can think of. And knowing how well the entire Galaxy lineup has been selling, we're pretty sure that the company's newest flagship will be among the year's most sought-after devices. However, it looks like it will be facing some tough competition. 

Right after the Galaxy S 4 announcement, we posted a poll asking you which high-end smartphone you were most tempted to purchase. Naturally, Samsung's pride and joy was on the list, yet it didn't quite get to the top spot. Out of a total of 10 190 participants, 2830 people (27.77%) chose the Nokia Lumia 920 as their favorite, followed by the Samsung Galaxy S 4 in second place with 2360 (23.16%) of the votes. The third spot goes to the HTC One, which collected 2237 votes (21.95%). Little love was given to the Sony Xperia Z, which received only 1212 votes (11.89%), and even less to the iPhone 5 with its 315 votes (3.09%). 

So obviously there's a lot of people interested in the Samsung Galaxy S 4, but at this time, the Korean company's flagship just doesn't seem to have gotten enough traction to be considered the new alpha male in the smartphone jungle. There are other flagship smartphones that consumers find just as attractive, the HTC One and Nokia Lumia 920 being among the most capable competitors out there. Yet the ultimate vote will be cast by the buyers who will be voting with their wallets.
