For me, I prefer Galaxy S4 because of the features. But I prefer Sense's icon set over Touchwiz's. Im pretty much neutral, since both have their pros and cons.

Reminder: please dont resort to kiddie wars (i.e flame wars that involve f-bombs and the like)

Personally I prefer the HTC One, just feel like a better phone. I don't like the plastic of the Galaxy series

Neither to be honest. I think both Samsung and HTC's changes to Android look completely out of place next to Holo apps in terms of icon style, color scheme and typography.

I'm a big fan of Sony's Android skin. Looks like a refined version of Holo.

Sony's settings screen looks excellent! Someone should make a ROM that has Sense apps and icons, Samsung music player(modded for different icon) and Sony Settings screen

Neither indeed. S4 wins by numbers, but that's not what matters to me, is not what I require from a PDA with voice calls option.
Xperia Z FTW. It could do with better loudspeaker, though, because I *would* pour large quantities of water on it if it fails to wake me up in the morning.

Hey, Sony should name their next flagship Xperia FTW. Fits rather well, don't you think; and they seem to have run out of letters anyway.

If I had to choose between Galaxy S4 and HTC One I'd pick the latter. That said I'm also in the 'neither' group and happy with my Nexus 4. Vanilla Android > all OEM skins.

Edit: As a reference, this is what the settings app looks like on the Nexus 4.

the s4 ranks 1 class below the htc one. the htc one is the reference, even acknowledged by all these review-sites which are very pro-samsung.
starts with the superior screen resolution, white looks white and not blueish, the speakers are the best ever seen on any smartphone, build quality feels like the one costs 2000 euros and the s4 costs 29,99 euros, and so on and so on....

Yeah, had a customer demo his speakers yesterday, and they sounded better than many of the ones you hear in some of the laptops. I was blown away.

That screen though, to me, is just sex.

You were always a fan of anything with SONY written on it. :rofl:

I am currently trying to choose between these two (infact the Xperia Z is also in there somewhere). Leaning towards the S4 right now though because of two things. Wireless charging and a removable battery. The higher end "feel" of the HTC doesn't really sway me as I will be buying a case regardless of what phone I get, and in terms of looks although some people think the S4 looks worse, I quite like it. The higher storage capacity of the HTC is tempting me (especially considering the S4's issues with storage space available), but I don't think it is quite enough. I am going to play around with both phones next weekend before making a decision though.

starts with the superior screen resolution


Don't they both have identical screen resolutions - 1080p?

If I had to choose then HTC. It's design is light years ahead of anything Samsung.
