Samsung Galaxy S 4 Reviews May Boost HTC One Sales
Reviewers of the Galaxy S 4 generally found it a feature-packed upgrade of the Galaxy S III. Many also suggested checking out the HTC One.Just as Samsung is clearing up supply delays and getting the Galaxy S 4 into waiting markets—Sprint announced April 29 that units are "now flowing" into its sales channels—reviews are emerging that might give some buyers pause. Everyone agrees that the S 4 is feature-packed and unlike anything on the market. But that doesn't mean it's for everyone. Walter Mossberg, reviewing the S 4 for the Wall Street Journal, went so far as to recommend a competing device. "I urge readers looking for a new Android smartphone to carefully consider the more polished-looking, and quite capable, HTC One, rather than defaulting to the latest Samsung," he wrote.
Mossberg liked improvements to the email apps as well as a feature called Air View, which lets users see additional information by hovering their finger over something but not clicking, and Samsung's improved Easy Mode, which offers simpler settings options and icons.
