US launch of the HTC One not affected by the delays as it's 'on a separate timetable'
A company source has indicated that the slight production delay of HTC One orders that was issued for the UK won't apply in the US, where things seem to be moving along on schedule, whatever it is exactly. 

HTC advised earlier that “We will start fulfilling pre-orders by end March in certain markets and will roll out to more markets as we approach April,” but apparently USA is still on track for the initial launch plans.

AT&T, as well as Sprint and T-Mobile are landing HTC's latest and greatest handset, and for now it seems that there are no delays on our side of the pond. “The statement doesn’t apply to US models. The US carriers are on a separate timeline,” confirmed the tipster.

Galaxy s4 is garbage man and you'd be a fool to think its any thing different from the S3 Do your self a favor and get the HTC One

Saying a phone is garbage before it's even released is pointless, especially one as large as the Galaxy S series. Obviously, you like Sony and are scared or are just a pathetic Samsung hater.

Lol who would want that big piece of plactic? Don't be surprised if HTC gives samsung a run for their money this year man.

Gotta remember you think its a big piece of plastic the 60 million people with the S3 would disagree with you. Htc will be lucky to sell 15 million units, Samsung will do tha in the first month and a half. just saying

Well maybe HTC should market better and in no way am i hating on HTC... As much as we all hate Apple as a business they have trained their followers into making billions. We all hate that approach but as a company it works

I am using galaxy S3, only because it has removable battery and SD card. i will disagree with you. HTC phone are better in terms of build quality but lacking other features like above which is important for me.

I'm going to get the best phone for my money. I can careless whether Samsung or HTC makes it. The only contention I have is that many people commenting, have some sort of ESP ability and can tell that the Samsung Galaxy S4 is better than the HTC and it has not even been formally released yet. Especially, since everything that has been rumored so far seems to indicate that these phones are evenly spec'd and that the choice is going to come down to a much more debatable differentiator. The major specs that are in common (in US) are: - Snapdragon 600 - 1080p Screen (roughly equivalent dpi) - HTC One has 6.4% greater DPI - LTE - Adruino 320 Graphics The minor spec diffs - Touchwiz vs Sense (this is a pick between which is less lame) - Plastic vs Aluminum (This is a toss-up, personal preference) - 2 buttons vs 3 buttons (neither are stock android on-screen buttons) Things yet to be defined: - 4 MP Ultrapixel vs 13 MP Samsung - Which takes better photos? - Audio recording quality. HTC One is impressive. Samsung, to be determined. - HTC One great speakerphone (stereo sound). Samsung, to be determined. - Battery life. HTC 2300maH. Samsung will probably provide more, probably 2500-2600maH range. Thats 8.7-13.0% increase in battery. But Samsung may surprise us and release a phone with only 2400 maH. I guess this is to say, that we have no idea if the S4 will be better than the HTC One. One thing we do know for certain is that the HTC One will be a great phone. But we may find out tomorrow that the S4 is better?

I do not need any ESP abilities to know that the HTC One is inherently flawed. It is not hard. I have a laundry list of things that I hate about HTC devices and they haven't fixed many and have in fact, made some things worse. Therefore, there is a 99.99999999% chance that the GS4 is better. I came to the conclusion with science, not ESP abilities. Yes, I have gotten my hands on the HTC One already in case you are wondering.

where is your laundry list? have you held the S4? o, speculation again. there is nothing scientific about your diatribe. try using logic next time as opposed to emotional rants.

It is logic. HTC One = poor button placement of their older devices. The power button and home button is placed even worse than before on the HTC One if you can believe it. HTC One = poor battery life. Both the Techradar and the Verge cite poor battery life in their reviews. HTC = Poor build quality including gaps and rattling volume rockers. I already noticed some gaps by the camera module and the volume rocker is wobbly just like all my other HTC phones. They also mentioned it in the Techradar review. HTC Sense sucks, fact. no toggles on the notifications, blink feed running in the background at all times. Ugly app drawer. As for the GS4, I am assuming it will be at least as good as the GS3 and nothing about the GS3 bothered me so yeah, I know. It is called common sense and deductive reasoning, not ESP. Like I said, it isn't hard. I always use logic.

8 hours and 32 minutes of video playback is good enough for me. Can't really comment on the build quality because I never experienced the problem on any of my HTC phones. I won't conclude on anything until I see the review from GSMArena.
