Motorola Moto X vs. Samsung Galaxy S4

Motorola Moto X vs. Samsung Galaxy S4 | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

"Does a smartphone market dominated by Apple and Samsung have room for a third major player? That's what Google-owned Motorola is hoping for, with the new Moto X. The phone is reportedly going to have an insane half-billion dollar marketing budget, but does it have the goods to back that up?"

Moto X wrap-up: everything we learned in Motorola's first 24 hours of rebirth | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

"It’s been one day since the Moto X was introduced as the rebirth of Motorola: a Google Company. Now it’s time to take a moment and reflect. What did we just see? At it’s most basic, Moto X is an Android smartphone that epitomizes the new wave, the Context Ecosystem, as it’s been dubbed, and with it comes a new way to experience smart devices."

Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini.. review

Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini.. review | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

"The Samsung Galaxy S4 is easily one of the best device’s on the market right now, and while it has top-of-the-line hardware, it might just be too big for some people. Sure, 5-inch screens are quickly becoming the standard, but many still think a 4- or 4.3-inch display is perfect for a smartphone. So, maybe the Galaxy S4 just isn’t for you, but what if it was available in a smaller size?"

HTC One mini.. hands-on | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

"HTC isn’t just relying on the One to turn its 2013 around: the company has the HTC One mini to help with that, a new 4.3-inch version of the aluminum smartphone. Slimming the flagship down – as well as some of the core specifications – the One mini is fronted by a 720p touchscreen where the One has 1080p, but still keeps the UltraPixel camera and Zoe photography system, among other things."

Samsung Galaxy S4 vs. HTC One: 5 Things Buyers Need to Know | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

"We take a look at the five most important things buyers need to know about the match up between the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC One.

While much of the talk these days is about devices like the iPhone 5S, Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and HTC One Max, there are plenty of consumers that aren’t in the business of waiting to buy a smartphone."

However, none of those devices will be hitting shelves any time soon as they are all rumored for the month of September with release dates that could certainly come later than that. For some smartphone shoppers, waiting a few more weeks won’t be a big deal. Many others though will likely be searching for a new smartphone right now.

Two of the smartphones that consumers will likely encounter in their search for a new smartphone are the HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S4, the respective flagships from their respective companies. These devices, despite the rumors, remain two of the best smartphone options on the table to consumers right now.

While they have been out for a few months, their battle is an evolving one as things have changed drastically since they first arrived on American carriers back in April of this year. In fact, there are some extremely important details that consumers should know, right now, about the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 before buying.

Here, we take a look at the five things buyers need to know about the battle between the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4.

Verizon HTC One hits August 1st.. too late? | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

"It’s just a few weeks away: the Verizon HTC One, the smartphone introduced in February and out on carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile in the months that came soon after. Now the Verizon version of the device is headed to market and it would appear – not confirmed 100%, but just as well – that the HTC One will be appearing on big red on the first of August. Will it have been worth the wait, or will it be too late to care?"

"Sony’s Xperia Z has been a sleeper agent of sorts: launched to great fanfare at CES in January, overshadowed by the Galaxy S 4 and HTC One at launch, and yet grabbing upgrade sales from under Samsung’s nose in Europe. Not bad for a company once written off in smartphones, and now Sony is hoping to repeat that success in the US, with a launch on T-Mobile USA.."

"They’re the phones the most vocal minority demanded, pure Android on familiar Samsung and HTChardware. They’re also the phones the manufacturers refused to consider; HTC Sense and Samsung TouchWiz aren’t merely window-dressing but core elements of the overall user-experience, so the argument went, and the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S 4 wouldn’t be the same without them. Now, then, with the Google Play Edition versions of both.."

Moto X vs the competition. How does the Moto X stack up on paper? | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

"The Moto X has already been branded as a midrange phone. However, the device actually did fairly well against the latest flagships in the specs department.

There is no doubt in anyone’s mind that the only real way to compare these devices is to hold them in your hand, load them up with apps, take some pictures, and actually use them. To that we say don’t worry, those comparisons are coming soon."

The culmination of Google’s new hand on the wheel, the “context aware” smartphone promises to step away from the core-chasing that plagues Android today, and instead deliver real usability improvements like entirely voice-activated Google Now, a camera with better low-light performance that doesn’t sacrifice megapixels along the way..."

"Having a phone with a pure Android experience seems to be increasing in popularity with Google’s range of stock Android Nexus devices continuing to sell well, plus the release of Google Play Editions of several flagship phones. However there are many ways to get hold of a smartphone with stock Android. One way is to buy a device from a lesser known brand."

Windows Phone 8 we know, but PureView on the platform is new, and a strong differentiator from anything we’ve seen on iPhone or Android before."
