    I was a fan of the HTC one until I went to the store and actually saw both in person and the Galaxy s4 is really impressive.

    I gotta see both in person. I have stepped in the Verizon store since I bought my iPhone in September.

    Well, Verizon will make the decision easy on you as they don't carry the HTC One.

    I bought an HTC One from T-mobile, and it's a great phone. I can't speak to the cool things about the S4, but there's no doubt it's also a great phone. There are countless comparisons online, but for me the two things that were surprising about the HTC One were the stereo front speakers and the automatic highlight videos it makes from your pictures and videos. Loud, clear front speakers are great while using your phone as a GPS in your car, and it can pass as a means to stream music and play loudly.

    As for the highlight videos.... the first time you see one you will almost definitely be surprised at how cool it is. There are probably examples online, and it's a very cool feature if you take a lot of pics/videos of people... like if you have a young child for example.

    I really like HTCs custom OS tweaks, but the One itself doesnt impress me that much in terms of aesthetics. I dont really like the full length speakers in the front, plus, there are awkward metallic lines in the back that dont appeal to me. It is by far, the best non-Samsung Android yet, but I just dont dig it (from pictures).
  7. An unnamed "Samsung Executive" ? Are these shipped to retailers? It is not a record if the number is not officially announced by Samsung. This is just some number pulled out of a hat...

    Yeah I know how you feel. I too would be very embarrassed to return to the store and admit to mistake of buying an iPhone instead of another brand.

    Shipping & and actual sales are two completely different things as far as I'm concerned. No doubt they've sold quite a few up till now but 6 mil sounds like they're stretching the truth a teeny weeny bit.
