HTC slams Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone after launch

Samsung Galaxy S4 falls short of HTC One in smartphone battle

Samsung announced its Galaxy S4 last night and HTC has already taken a stab at the new flagship smartphone.

After months of hype and anticipation, Samsung announced its Galaxy S4 but HTC thinks the new smartphone doesn't compare to its flagship HTC One. The rival vendor claims its handset offers superior build quality and technology. See also Samsung Galaxy S4 new features.

Benjamin Ho, HTC's Chief Marketing Officer, said: "With a continuation of a plastic body and a larger screen being the most obvious physical change, Samsung's new Galaxy pales in comparison to the all-aluminium unibody HTC One. This is more of the same." Take a look at Samsung Galaxy S4 release date in UK.

"HTC remains the best option for those people looking for the best technology wrapped in premium design. Our customers want something different from the mainstream, who appear to be the target for the Galaxy. Our customers want original cutting-edge technology, mouth-watering design and a premium feel from their mobiles, which is why we created the HTC One." added Ho.

It's rare to see a firm make such a direct stab at rival product and so soon after the launch of said product. It's proof of just how hotly contested the smartphone market is these days.

It will be a big battle between Samsung and HTC, both deciding to announce their flagship smartphones for 2013 outside of MWC. And that's without factoring other big name devices like the Sony Xperia Z and iPhone 5.We'll be keeping a close eye and will be bringing you a Samsung Galaxy S4 vs HTC One comparison review as soon as possible.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
