Samsung Galaxy S4 vs HTC One
Call quality

Call quality is one area where the HTC One easily gains the upper hand with the deeper and more natural tones that it's able to emit through its earpiece. Its microphone also seems to be more capable, as our callers reported a clearer sound with it. As you can imagine, the stereo speakers of the One are much better than the single one of the Galaxy S4, which struggles to reach the same volume and depth levels.


These are the two Android phones of the year, or at least for the first half of the year. While the HTC One X lost the fight against the Galaxy S III last year, it looks like HTC has better chances in 2013.

The HTC One is equal to the Galaxy S4 in many aspects, and where it feels inferior to the Samsung, it manages to make up for it with something else. The HTC One looks and feels like an expensive product, which isn't something we can say for the Galaxy S4.

The Galaxy S4, however, has its own advantages. Its uninspiring design is actually surprisingly comfortable to hold and use. Its dimensions feel significantly smaller, while its weight is lighter.

With the Galaxy S4, Samsung is continuing its quest towards complete domination over the land of Android, transforming the colorful, chaotic jungle into a profitable industrial area. With the One, HTC proves that the former contract manufacturer does deserve its place among the leading smartphone companies. There really cannot be a better phone between these two, as both are successfully countering each other with their own unique assets.
