There has been no shortage of discussion on this very subject. If you’ve been to the forums in the past month (if you haven’t, shame on you) then you’ve surely come across at least one thread with the question “Should I get the Galaxy S4 or the HTC One?” It’s a question that doesn’t have a right answer, or at least not one that anyone can provide for you. Hearing other people’s opinions can definitely help, though, especially if those people already own the devices you’re trying to decide between.
Mello_Asian asks this very question of our forum members:
“Hey, everyone! My contract is close to its expiration, and I was wondering what phone I should get to replace my LG Optimus S. Both the HTC One and GS4 are great phones, and I'd be very complacent to get either one of them since they are a HUGH upgrade from the Optimus S.
However, as a high school student, I was wondering which of them would be much better/more helpful/more convenient for me in the next two years under a new contract. I'll be using my phone more for the camera, music player, more accessible games to pass time, and to help me with certain tasks with the browser or certain apps (searching up things, sparknotes, AP notes, etc.)”
Coming from an Optimus S one thing is certain, either device will definitely be a huge upgrade. It seems that entertainment is a core use, as well as some specific features to help with school. So what are other members saying?
