Yeah the top power button took a bit of getting used to after owning many Samsung phones with the side button.

But we're getting dangerously close to overwhelming this S4 thread with One propaganda (even if it is justified Laughing).

jeffnz: Networkn just a quick question, I haven't had a chance to have a look at the HTC one IRL but form the looks it has capacitive buttons meaning the actual view-able size of screen is much less that S4, is this right or are my eyes playing tricks.


I think you mean onscreen buttons? It does not. Although in the case of apps that have no overflow button a menu softkey will appear at the bottom of the screen. I suspect this will be fixed in an upcoming software update.

The full screen area is otherwise used.

ok I'll try again, if you look at pic the home, back button etc on the HTC are inline with the bottom of the view able S4 screen if I'm looking at it correctly meaning the view-able area on the HTC is much less than the S4

Well it's a bigger screen 5.0 vs 4.7 on the S4 so there will be a difference for sure.

All screens are measured corner to corner.

Yes as networkn said 5" vs 4.7" screen. The buttons are under the glass but not on the screen but they do have the appearance of being on-screen at times.

i'd be keen to see how the HTc implementation of the IR blaster remost is compared to the s4 ..

people hate on touchwiz so much ..but i find it the best for actually getting stuff done.

so on the s4 ..it's avail, right there in the notification pull down,  you can launch the actual full app from there as well ..but, the base vol and channel and power options are right there.

doe the HTC one have that as well? how does sense intergrate it

This is also an issue, but more in terms of useable screen real estate...

Lambchop - its one of the few omissions on the One, the toggles in notifications, powertoggles looks oem and is free and does everything you need it to with a degree of customization ability, but I agree its annoying having to use a third party app on a new device.

As for the buttons, every reviewer said it annoyed them for a day then they forgot about it - if you root your phone you can also turn the HTC logo into a working button too, the entire front face is touch sensitive.

Its worthy of note Google has been pushing for the three dot menu in every app and the removal of the hardware menu button, and in the apps that support it it feels really good, much better than hitting a hardware button, it is App makers and Samsung/other Android phone makers making this hard.

Similar questions about each phone in each of the dedicated threads on most forums I read dude

Seems to be the big two phones people are tossing up so they want comparisons and advice.

S4 great phone etc

It is, I've had it for a week, but when the last page is all HTC (minus 2 comparisons) it had me wondering ;-P



BTW, Touchwiz is pretty crappy as usual, but it takes nothing to load apex launcher... heaps faster

yes we need to get the threads back on topic but seems most keen to share their great phones.

I prefer Nova myself but pretty similar, don't think I've had TW for very long on any of my galaxy's
