Today, we will offer you a comparison, and more specifically, a comparative table of the technical characteristics of three high-end for the time being, namely Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC One and Sony Xperia Z.


In the first quarter, it must be said that users have a choice of purchasing fairly wide with three very high-end products advertised, each has a unique design. We are in 2013, the standards of high quality are moving towards sizes, resolutions and screen quality even more important, not to mention performance tenfold.

Samsung Galaxy S4

Unveiled two days ago in Times Square (New York City), let’s go back to the datasheet of the Galaxy S4.


It offers a large 5-inch screen with resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels (Full HD) with 441 pixels per inch, quad-processor 600 heart Snapdragon 1.9 GHz, Exynos 5410 is a heart-octo 1.6 GHz (the choice will be made ​​according to the markets/countries) accompanied by 2GB of RAM on both models.

It also offers a 13 megapixel camera and a 2 megapixel front camera that is able to take photos or videos simultaneously.It also includes an accelerometer, a notification LED, digital compass, proximity and brightness sensors, and also a gyroscope as well as a barometer.

It will be available in three versions: 16, 32 and 64GB models and two Exynos 5410 (Octa) and Snapdragon 600 (Quad).

Although I have not yet taken it in my hand, I think the strengths of the Galaxy S4 are looming in:

  • a screen size larger keeping a body with the same dimensions
  • octo-core processor divided into two iterations quadruple-core:
    • the first one, ARM Cortex-A15 for intensive tasks,
    • the second, ARM Cortex-A7 for tasks with low consumption
  • greater fineness of 7.9 mm, a lightness of 130 grams and a scratch resistant with its Gorilla Glass 3 screen
  • a battery with a capacity of 2600 mAh, which is up to 300 mAh more than the HTC One and Sony Xperia Z
  • a SAR (specific absorption rate) with only 0.300W/kg
  • an infrared (IR), a temperature and humidity sensor
  • its many accessories

Announced just before the MWC (mid February), HTC One is already available for pre-order in many operators…


HTC One is advanced through a touch screen Super Clear LCD 3, 4.7 inch Resolution 1080 x 1920 pixels (Full HD) with ~ 468 pixels per inch, the latest generation of Qualcomm Snapdragon processor clocked at 1.7 GHz 600 supported by an Adreno 320 graphics processor and 2 GB of RAM.

It features a 4-megapixel camera with Ultrapixels technology that significantly improves the quality of the pixels, as well as a 2 megapixel camera on the front. Like with Galaxy S4, it also offers an accelerometer, a notification LED, digital compass, a gyroscope, a barometer, and Infrared bonus.


It is already available for pre-order in many operators and resellers, available in two models: 32 and 64 GB for all retailers.

Trying to remain objective, in my opinion, its advantages are:

  • its smaller screen size of 4.7 inches that will please a large number of users
  • resolution of 1080p (Full HD) which is better than the One X with the same screen size
  • its very smooth, one-piece body composed entirely of aluminum, which fits perfectly in hand
  • its quad-core at last generation: Qualcomm Snapdragon Qualcomm 600
  • its rear camera compatible with the technology Ultrapixel
  • its dual speaker with improved sound thanks to BoomSound (and Beats audio)
  • its HTC Sense 5 interface with lot of features
  • port infra-red (IR) to transform your smartphone into a true universal remote control
