Which one is bigger?
The one's back isn't flat, so that calculation fails worse for the One than the S4 (which only curves right at the edges). Besides, screen area is constrained by front surface area (or width really), not volume.
I'm not dissing the S4 at all, and it does have a narrower bezel, which is good. But for things relevant to screen size, the One is actually smaller. I would have preferred a narrower bezel on the One, but if I were offered that I'd use it to reduce the size of the phone rather than increase the size of the screen (which I realise makes me weird
BTW I don't own either, and am currently considering both.
