The Dog Park: Week Of April 22nd

With the HTC One in stores and the Samsung Galaxy S 4 released this week, competition is getting crazy. Now is the time for people to be making up their minds. Travelling to any carrier store to play with both devices at once is the best way so far, and I think you will quickly realize your loyalty once both are in your hands. And of course, as soon as both flagships are on the market, they are proven inferior by Qualcomm announcing that the more powerful Snapdragon 800 will start mass production in May. Technology has a funny way of making us feel bad. So now that both devices are on shelves and demo units are on display, let us know if you’ve made the final decision. If you’ve used both, which one do you prefer, the HTC One or the Samsung Galaxy S 4?
