    i am searching for a android phone with alot of tech inside to use besides my dear iphone 5.

    i want a phone wich:
    -Has not crap battery life, but it may be slighly lower then iphone 5.
    -Has a slow-motion video mode. must be able to capture 10seconds or more of slow motion.
    -4,5inch display or more. 720p or 1080p i do not care your eyes wont tell the difference anyway unless you look 5cm away from the screen.
    -Not about specs but about features. i like how the galaxy s4 has the function to pause the video when not looking at the screen. stuff like that.

    I liked the htc one as my friend besides my iphone 5 until i saw it only has 4mp. ofcource megapixels doesnt say anything about quality but thats just small. zooming in on a photo will probaly look not so good with 4mp. i also hate the sense menu while i loved it before. on the HTC evo 3d, it looked really awesome. now it looks real window boring business style. if there was a way to put that nice shiny old sense back onto it i would consider it again. i really do love eye candy.

    thanks!

    The s4 will be your best bet if you want a good camera with lots of features.

    Subjective and highly debatable. ;)


    OP you sound like you want something just to show off features. We'll in that case the S4 was made for you. Its packed full of those type of features, and the camera is awesome. But be aware those features come at cost - using them all will drain your battery faster and may increase instances of the User Interface lagging or stuttering.

    ----------

    Yes you install a custom launcher, but it still wouldn't have the wavey gesture features .

    i dont want a custom launcher i want the nice unlock and weather effects and stuff like the evo 3d. not just a theme or something it has to be real:)

    the s4 does look nice but i really hate the way it looks. the one's outside is amazing.

    choices choices.
    so basicly the s4 is my only choice?

    The one has the weather widget (flip clock style) from the evo 3D too, and the music virtualiser is really flash and the fact it can put lyrics on screen gives you your wn little karaoke machine.

    But if you want gesture controls, wave your hand over screen, scroll with your eyes then yes the s4 is currently your option.


    Really just go into a store and TRY for yourself. You need to decide what you want from it, what is of greater importance and what your prefer in your phone.

    To me it sounds like the S4 would be a better match, but honestly what do we know? We know nothing about you and your subjective preferences.

    Your going to have to decide for yourself and the easiest way is to go into a store and try what is there and see for yourself.

    wow. you must really love the htc widget/animation. there are some really good weather apps/widgets in the market for free.

    lot of tech + lot of functions = galaxy s4.
    aesthetics = htc one.

    take your pick.
