Which smartphone would you choose?

Sony Xperia Z (not offered in the states but can be bought on ebay)

Samsung Galaxy S4 (I'm excited about this one)

HTC One (looks promising)

Every time I mess around with an android-based phone, it just feels like a cheap toy.

What "exciting" features are you looking for in a phone?

Played with the new BB Z10. Didn't think I would like it as much as I did.

D. None of the above.

I need my phone to work, do what i need it to an that's it. Don't need a phone to be exciting i guess.

This!
I have both iPhone 4s and a galaxy s3. The iPhone is to simplistic (fisher-price style). I prefer the android platform over the apple platform by far.

With that said I'd go with the s4

Your iPhone 4 is faster than 4S and iPhone 5 even though they have more ram and faster processors? I find that hard to believe especially if you have dreamboard which is a ram hog. Not sure if srs or retarded.

And for OP, I suggest the HTC One. Currently the best design IMO. S4 is basically an Galaxy S3s, cheap plastic.

Same with android? Faster processor and higher megapixel camera.
Can you name some notable changes from Ice cream sandwich to Jelly bean?

Only thing i can think of is Project butter which makes OS more smooth, but shouldn't this have been updated since the beginning Android was made? They went through 8 different OS versions till they finally figured it out?

HTC one looks really good. I've been thinking of getting off the iPhone bandwagon and getting that soon.

Jailbreak does help tho and I would miss iMessage too much. To the previous poster who said you have jailbroken apps that make your 4 faster than the 4S or the 5... Uhhhh not sure if srs either

I want my phone to just work, I don't care about all the other pointless features (just my opinion) that android phones offer. The IPhone seems to be the best fit for me. I tried an android phone a year ago and returned it after a week for my iPhone

Anyone have experience with HTC that they can share? One of my buddies said HTC is good while another said it sucks. Thinking perhaps I should stick to the GS4 like I originally thought.
