i was wondering if anyone out there has either of these phone and would be willing to offer some insight. i've heard great things about each, and the comparisons/contrasts between the two have been well documented. specifically, i was hoping that someone might be able to tell me about his or her own personal experiences with the phone(s) with respect to general every-day usability (e.g. phone size/heft, apps, lag time, photos, battery life, etc.).
the bad news is that i'm stuck with verizon and have to wait for the htc one to come out if i go that route. they've been terrible when it comes to providing release details (see: http://www.gottabemobile.com/2013/06/13/verizon-htc-one-launch-hysterically-bad/
), but if the one is really better, i'm willing to wait. that said, if the s4 really is the better phone, why wait? as with most gadgets, ASAP ASAP ASAP!
