The HTC One was quite talked about before its launch and was well received by the critics as well. But, with Samsung Galaxy S4 all set to launch in a few days, will HTC again suffer a setback in terms of sales, despite how wonderful the HTC One is? Or will it manage to hold its own against the Samsung flagship and break through to the top this year?
HTC One: Well, there are a lot of reasons why we know this one could emerge a winner in the market. For starters, we love its expensive looking all aluminum body – makes it feel slick and classy. The HTC One has a 4.7-inch screen with the highest resolution on a smartphone yet – 468 ppi. Running on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with an improved Sense 5.0 UI, only one word describes its functioning – smooth! The phone is powered by a quad-core 1.7 GHz Snapdragon 600 processor and 2 GB of RAM. Another winning reason to pick the HTC One is its unique Ultrapixels camera which promises sharper, clearer images with far better color reproduction. It comes with an internal storage space of 32 GB, of which 26 GB is available to the user. There’s also a 2.1 MP front-facing camera. A 2,300 mAh battery gives the phone ample juice as well.
Samsung Galaxy S4: While not much is known yet, based on the rumors, we’re expecting the Galaxy S4 to have a 4.99-inch full HD resolution with a ppi count of around 441. There’s speculation that this phone could be powered by Samsung’s very own eight-core Exynos 5 processor showcased during CES 2013 and 2 GB of RAM. Samsung may also make another model with a quad-core processor. The phone is expected to run on Android 4.2 and will feature a 13 MP rear camera.
