HTC calls the Samsung Galaxy S4 “mainstream”
Yesterday was a big day for Samsung, as they officially announced the Samsung Galaxy S4, their latest, and arguably most impressive Galaxy device to date. HTC, for their part, thinks a little bit differently.
HTC recently said that they’ve had enough of this being “quietly brilliant” and now they are going after Apple and Samsung. It seems they are starting with Samsung by targeting the build-quality of the S4.
“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,” it said. “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, mouthwatering design and a premium feel from their mobiles, which is why we created the HTC One.”
HTC is really proud of their new HTC One, which is actually an impressive device with its all-aluminium unibody and attractive design. Do you think HTC is right about the Samsung Galaxy S4? Is HTC One really “better” than the S4? Do customers care about how a device feels more than what it does? Does the Samsung Galaxy S4 do more than the HTC One? Is mainstream really all that bad?
