Deanzo: First off, Hello, I'm Deanzo, this is my first post here :)
I've been keeping an eye on this thread and many others over the web looking out for user reviews/feed back.
Haven't really had anything to add till now, but on the talk of if it's more or less attractive to have a phone with a large user base.
I'd say for sure better.
I imported a HTC One S into NZ almost as soon as it came out.
And it's been a great phone, but with the much lower user count next to the S3 or even the One X, does lower the amount of accessories. As it turned out, no one ended up stocking it here, so everything I wanted had to come from overseas.
After having the One S for a year now, I would point out for anyone looking at getting the "One" Dont buy the black!
The One S is all but the same kind of metal body, and even though I really look after my stuff, it has chip type marks almost all the way round :(
I like the look and the feel of the metal body, so I don't and would never use a case.
I really want the One as my next phone (would make 3 HTC's in a row) but if the S4 is in stock on the 27th, and if there is no hard 100% eta date which is soon after that for the One, it's going to be very hard to hold out.
Other than physical properties why would you purchase the HTC One over the S4? I am not trolling, but seems to be that the reviews indicate that other than built quality (Other than black) the S4 outshines the One in pretty much everything.
