    This is the battle of 2013. HTC has come out strong with the One. Thursday we'll get a look at Samsung's Galaxy S4.

    I don't see the S4 having a better build quality than the HTC One. Not sure that's enough. Will Samsung overpower HTC with marketing prowess, specs?

    Thoughts?

    I haven't been impressed with HTC of the last year or so, but to be fair I really haven't read up on the HTC One, Samsung however, has really done a nice job with releasing a good line of devices. I would like to see someone take on Samsung in the Android game, I think they hold too much market share within Android.

    What is better about the HTC? Can you give a few examples? If the HTC works for you then you should use it, but I am curious about what you perceive as some of the big differences that tip the scales for you.

    I'd say it depends on what's important to you. I for one like the HTC hardware. If you like the ability to swap out batteries and increase your storage, than Samsung is your choice.

    The trouble is if you like all of the above, it becomes a tough choice. Perhaps made a bit easier by HTC's $100 kick back.

    From what I understand the One has a fully aluminum body as well as a higher quadcore processor. Whereas the S4 will still have a hard plastic(?) body. I am sure this will change with time but I believe this is the current spec

    Doesn't having alimumum just transfer the shock wave of dropping it to the glass. The aluminum isn't going to break. Whereas plastic might, saving some glass? Isn't the back of the S3 and S4 carbon fiber?

    The link you posted show same processor.

    I don't have any real issue with HTC, but they've always seemed slightly heavier and bulkier to me than Samsung. Samsung feels more sleek and I like that they've always had bigger screens. That being said, I think both make fine phones. Sure wouldn't trust a Motorola anything these days however.

    just read the HTC One scored a 1 out o f 10 on iFixIt. Not that that probably matters to most people.

    You are correct about the processor. When I first typed out the message it was before I included the link.
    You could be right about the aluminum, however thats why I try to always have a case around my phone. Otter Box is great for being a secure case.

    Do you find it funny how we all met in a Motorola forum and now we wouldnt trust them to save our lives ;)

    HTC left a bad taste in my mouth after I went through 4 Touch Pros to find one that worked correctly. It ended up being the refurb unit that didn't have problems...

    The HTC One has my vote simply because of the screen size, and it's a LCD screen. I think they look so much better then amoled. Also, I've had incredible luck when it comes to HTC devices, they've all been durable as hell.

    I hope to have the HTC One developer edition by the end of next week (fingers crossed). I'm looking forward to evaluating it. Chris, this is Kevin from eiC, BTW.

    But aren't you going to miss all that carrier-installed bloatware?

    I have always been a fan of Samsung over HTC...I guess its true that when u get a crappy product you keep that stigma forever. However, the was the HTC eris so I guess i gotta give them another chance.

    Would anyone legitly put a new Note into this battle or is it a different battle all together?
