If you didn’t watch last night’s Samsung Galaxy S4 unveiling in New York City, we can tell you the entire experience was rather…. interesting. Much of the event was spent highlighting a number of fictional scenarios where a specific S4 feature would be perfect in said scenario, and less about the actual device itself. While the entire experience was meant to entertain, it made HTC President Jason MacKenzie feeling pretty good, though actually feeling bad for Samsung.
“I went from laughing to actually feeling embarrassed at some of the acting,” said MacKenzie to CNET. “Watching the presentation, it looks like they invested a lot in marketing instead of innovation.”
As you would expect, MacKenzie believes the HTC One should be considered ahead of other Android smartphones, including the Galaxy S4, since many of the features Samsung highlighted in its device weren’t new, such as the S-translator.
Considering I was able to poke around with both devices, both the HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S4 have their own pros and cons. Both devices will probably be geared towards a different Android demographic, but considering how massive the Galaxy S brand has become over the years, it’s safe to say more people would probably pick up a Galaxy S4 than an HTC One.
