    It has a more advanced lens and sensor which means that it's able to capture more light, which results in amazing low light pics.

    I took some pics in a dark room just to test the HTC One compared to my mum's Samsung Galaxy Note 2, and I am impressed!
    I'm more impressed with the amount of mess in your house. :eek:

    wow that is really crap from the galaxy note 2, from the HTC one's pic, the room seems to be lit well enough and it was daytime as well (from what it seems), but the 1st pic made it look like the room was in virtual pitch black
    It was from under a table and not well lit at all, in fact, for some reason the HTC made the scene appear more lit up even without flash.

    That was an excellent deal. Shame it was on O2 though. Can get a similar deal through t-mobile but at £26pm and with unl data.

    Black, I ordered it originally ages ago through Mobile Phones Direct, they then started messing me about saying stock issues meant it was delayed, but told me the silver one was available for next day delivery. So I swapped my order to that, then I got an e-mail saying they were out of stock of that too but I'd have it within a few days. Then I got an e-mail saying it wouldn't be till the end of April. Joke of a company, they don't respond to e-mails, they lie to keep you with them, can't recommend them at all.

    After I gave up on MPD I ordered the black through Phones4U and I'm pleased to say they're able to fulfill the order within 3 days of ordering!

    So looking forward to it

    I can't wait to get mine but I'm going to wait until June, after some more videos on durability tests are posted online, and to see how Apple improve on iOS and there next iPhone.

    never did get the hype about the low-light camera - surely that's what a flash is for? :stupido3:

    People just cover up their mistake of buying HTC One by S4's plastic feel and forget all its benefits over HTC One.

    Memory slots and perhaps a removable battery are the only real benefits it has over the HTC One. Much of the rest are just gimmicks, or insignificant for most people.

    I'd rather have a premium feeling phone with a good feature set than paying more for a plastic phone filled with features and gimmicks- most of which wouldn't even be used.

    Agreed, it really depends on what you want. Each phone has their advantages such as the S4 having a better camera for HD video/normal lit shots and a Micro SD Card. Where as the HTC One has a better camera for low light and boombox speakers for your music.

    Just pick the features you want and the design style you want and hey presto. They're both top end phones.

    I've got my One and wouldn't change it for any other phone. It's fantastic and does everything I want. Feels fantastic too!

    I have the HTC one and can honestly say that I'm so glad I chose it.

    Everything about it is great, perhaps the only downside is that you can't insert a micro-sd.

    The problem I had with the S4 was that it is so similar to the S3. I had the S3 previously and it was a great phone although the plasticky feel doesn't match the price you pay.

    The extra features on the S4 such as look-away to pause video are cool...but you have to ask yourself how much you will use these features. They had some of these similar features on the S3, and after the initial "cool" factor, they were disabled for the rest of the time I had the phone.

    The HTC is premium build quality, you feel as though you are getting what you pay for.

    for phones with an unmovable battery, what happens when the battery eventually goes weak and lasts much shorter?

    can you send it back to the manufacturer to replace it?

    Firstly, nowadays with the latest batteries it shouldnt really be noticeable.

    Secondly, you can help yourself by not overcharging.

    Thirdly, it is covered by the manufacturer only within the period they say. Normally a year?
