Now that the Galaxy S 4 has been announced, consumers will rightly wonder if it can stand up to HTC’s One. Samsung handily swept competitors aside in 2012, propelling itself to the top of the smartphone heap. But the competition has gotten that much more fierce, and the One is a prime example of how to engineer a smartphone—really, it’s impeccably designed.
So we wanted to see how the two devices stood toe-to-toe—though on Samsung’s terms. Of course, the fact that the S 4 is in a controlled environment doesn’t do either justice; hopefully we’ll have a more thorough and intimate battle soon. In the meantime, check out the versus video to get a feel for how these two still stack up.
