"That's true story..htc step by step near to samsung but maybe it can sell more than s4 if htc had too big money for advertising".

you are grossly wrong my dear ramour, if htc had better "features" n not just cosmetic looks than samsung galaxy s4 ,then htc will definately outsell samsung phones, also htc phones have a ton of bloatware that just spoils the beauty of android, n now it just tries to mimic the live tiles of windows phones,
may be some kids will buy the htc phones for their cosmetic looks, i neither have a fetish for metals nor for their cosmetic looks, i just want a powerhouse n power performer of a phone,
many people downplay the micro sd card slot saying they dont need that much of "excess storage" or that they will use cloud for everything, mind u samsung is not a regional phone manufacturer that just sells phones in the us which has a vast 4g covarage, so using cloud may not be a problem for them but samsung is intelligent enough to look after all its world wide consumers, for example theres isnt any 4g in my country, so using cloud by 2g or 3g connection is illogical here , u may say just use wi fi, also wi fi is also limited here at my place, so any time i would prefer a phone with micro sd card slot than one without it, samsung is truely an international company which takes into consideration all its world wide consumer base before designing n releasing a product,
also htc has a ton of bloat ware on its phones,
anytime hands down i will go for samsung only.
thanks.
also regarding ur comment about advertising the movie "macgruber" was advertised a lot but it bombed at the box office, open up your eyes buddy, people just dont buy mobiles based on mere advertising , its the "features" in the phone n that company which listens to the hearts of its consumers will always be the winner in the game, others will bite the dust just like nokia did.
also just ask ur htc customers if they are happy with the support to thier older phones, just see how samsung supports thier older phones with latest firmware, the best example is samsung galaxy s2 which started out with gingerbread n now is enjoying jelly bean, can ur htc customers boast like that?

walid, 27 Mar 2013the only one worker can make a one device per 4 hours.....and th... moreWell you are considering that only 1 device is being manufactured in 4 hours. Rather there are thousand of devices which are manufactured simultaneously but each requiring 4 hours. So just in 4 hours there would be 4000 devices ready, and in a day 24000. Now that's impressive.

That's true story..htc step by step near to samsung but maybe it can sell more than s4 if htc had too big money for advertising.

NO SD card = you lose all your data if ANYTHING in phone will die.

Each phone may die one day... the memory is only PART of phone. So if something in phone will die I can at least extract SD card, but not in stupid HTC One.

Ehh, and I wont wait backuping 10-20 GB of different data each day.

why all this fighting over who's better both the Galaxy s4 and the HTC one, are Great Phones And are Android devices . it was just 3 years ago people was Calling our Android Smart phones , is This An iphone Killer . Now the Galaxy s4 , the HTC one , Sony Xperia Z , Oppo find 5 , LG Optimus Pro , Motorola are Killing everything . Come on Android Brothers and Sisters , Rise up and keep supporting Android

Ahmed, 27 Mar 2013How the htc can manufacture single smartphone each 4 hours!!!!!!... moredear ahmed.

nice logic and inference.
Htc said it takes 4hours to complete one phone. they didn't say that they all stay freezed watching to finish one phone and then starts manufacturing the 2nd one.

Never understood people who pre-order new phones. Don't you want to wait till the device is out, and actually see it, hold in your hand before you buy it. This applies to any manufacturer

Ahmed, 27 Mar 2013How the htc can manufacture single smartphone each 4 hours!!!!!!... moreYes, because they only have one man on the production line making one phone at a time. I guess they make it in a shed near you.
