Something rarely mentioned, HTC sense historically eats a lot of processor power.
Benchmarks were always slower in the HTC phone by a fair margin with similar processors. It's overhead added to the OS.
O buys cars that are user friendly, I want my phone to also be the same... Limiting what battery I use such removes variability and uses.
Apple products lots of pretty shiny things that in turn limit in other ways.... Hopefully HTC won't adopt that poise.
I like having a week of usage if I want and don't mind the weight, I can go hiking, hunting, camping and not sweat the battery.
Bright screens are great in bright sunlight, but when do you use your phone?
I prefer the deep rich colors of amoled screens for my movies, pictures etc.
The s4 processor also has more mustard and lots more software enginuity.
Dont forget who's the leader here.
