Ok, looking to jump from iPhone 5 to HTC One in Black, or Samsung Note II or S4

I like the fact you can have an MSD card slot for expansion on the Samsung's but you do not on the One.

My Questions is anyone having both or one or the other, which has good battery life. I had a Note II for 10 days but returned it a while ago, just could not get iCloud email syncing, but now figured out how to do this.

Trying to decide which overall has better battery life and is the smoothest. I really could go with any of the 3, just looking for some pros and cons and experiences.
Well, for battery life, the Note II probably wins.

If you want a HTC One vs Galaxy S4 comparison, you can check out this thread:

All of them will (should) be smooth.
It might come down to either phone size, phone hardware, or what UI the phone has (unless you plan on putting a custom ROM on your phone).

5.5 vs 5 vs 4.7.
Aluminum vs Plastic.
Sense 5 vs Nature Touchwiz

If you want the giant screen, the note is the way to go.

However, there should be a new one out this fall so you may want to wait.

Between the HTC one and the s4, all I can really recommend is to go into a store and get some hands in experience with both

I prefer the one, but at the end of the day the important thing is that you are happy with your phone.
