HTC One vs Galaxy S4

9SHARESFacebookTwitter HTC One vs Galaxy S4¬† I thought it’d be interesting to see the HTC One and Galaxy S4 side-by-side, so I created this graphic below doing just that! ūüôā I feel when it comes to the design the Samsung Galaxy S4 is a little outdated and a little too much like Apple’s iPhone 3G. Where with the HTC One, I feel completely different about its design. It looks unique, stylish and up-to-date. Although it sports a 4.7 inch screen, I feel that is more than enough space to do what ever you want on the phone. While the S4 has a bigger 5.0 inch screen, the design does it in for me. It doesn’t have that same look of uniqueness and ultimately HTC’s design department has done a decent job. I also think that the Snapdragon 600 Quad-Core 1.7 Ghz is more than adequate for any smartphone. The Galaxy S4 also does not fair too badly and for 70% of the S4s produced will all likely get the same processor as HTC’s One.

Samsung Galaxy S4 review

7SHARESFacebookTwitter Samsung announced the Samsung Galaxy S4 on March 14th, 2013 and released the smartphone in 155 countries in late April 2013. The phone is a successor to the Galaxy S III, and its¬†highlighted¬†features are higher battery life time,¬†incorporates¬†a thinner design and has a slightly larger display. The new smartphone contains some of the Samsung Galaxy S3’s design, but with a wider and longer display. The S4 is also in competition with the HTC One, so I threw together a little side-by-side comparison. However, this is quite obviously not fit to real-life scale. We’re just comparing the designs of each phone. Hardware While I feel the design of the S4 is pretty nice, I would however say that the HTC One has the S4 beat on design. The old rounded feel brings me back to the days of the iPhone 3 or even the Samsung Galaxy S1. At least with the S2 they went for the more cornered look and I think the S2 looks much more appealing in terms of design. When it comes to specification, the S4 of course fairs as one of the best smartphones based on its hardware and based on region the phone has a Quad Core¬†processor that runs up to¬†1.9 Ghz. Other differences such as the screen size has been done by narrowing the smartphone’s shell to give it an extra 2 inches on the Samsung Galaxy S3. The battery life has also seen a significant increase and the Galaxy S4 holds a 2600 mAh battery where by comparison the S3 holds a 2,100 mAh battery.
