Good: its speed
Comment: awsmm looks..
Comment: does your s4 heats up guys
Comment: I have just recently upgraded my smartphone. I did try both phones but in the end I went for the HTC. Not that the Galaxy S4 was a bad smartphone but I much preferred the HTC One.
Comment: this s4 is flawless in every-way makes the HTC ONE look like a mickey mouse phone i owed the HTC one for the 1st week im so glad i changed it to the s4 best thing i ever did the HTC ONE speaker design was a nightmare so prone to dirt grit sand clogging up in the speaker and very slow compared to the S4 outstanding phone cant fault it so many good features like temperature humidity and infa red sensors would so recommend this fone :)
Good: Super fast and lovely camera
Bad: Much too full of superfluous software
Comment: If only it was possible to remove unwanted extraneous software, I would not have so much trouble deciding whether to buy this one or another (not Samsung, which typically forces their customers to put up with too much unremovable stuff).
Good: Excellent camera, software, sd slot, removable battery, speed.
Bad: Attracts unhappy HTC ONE owners!
Comment: I think the Samsung S4 is a very good phone, its fast, great camera, expandable memory, 1080p Amoled screen, slim, loads a good software features, easy to use.
P.s HTC ONE seems a good phone but in this day and age it should have expandable memory!
Good: Stunning display, blistering performance, looks amazing
Bad: Samsung apps that cannot be removed
Comment: I moved to the S4 from and iPhone and would not go back. The S4 is a beautiful device - NB. All these people complaining that it looks cheap don't actually own the phone (see above) pictures do not do it justice, it really is a stunning piece of design - and if you do drop it, it won't shatter in a million pieces like the iPhone, as poly-carbonate will flex. I have found the phone to be fast, reliable and not overly battery-hungry given the massive 5' display. On the downside, pre-loaded Samsung apps cannot be removed and the bundle takes up quite a lot of space, however, Samsung have agreed to look into this. Overall I love this phone and wouldn't swap it for any other. Best tech on the market right now - FACT!
Good: good camera
Bad: bad bettary life
Comment: i want to know if it contains a 4G CONNECTION
Good: its a 4G ready phone
Bad: everything, cheap cheap cheap
Comment: Ive found the new s4 to be cheap looking, tacky, filled with gimmicky use extras. Samsung had taken its response to the s3 and went overboard with cheesy gimmicks. The HTC ONE wins hands down with a 5 star review
