If money is not a concern, then S4 seems to be the best one out.

S4 > DNA. The us s4 will pac a similar proc but clocked higher I believe compare to the DNA. The dna battery is smaller and not removable and there is no SD on the DNA. So your looking at 2 phones both 1080p with the same proc, and one is better with battery and sd. It's a no brainer.

Between the 2 of those, S4 without a doubt. I prefer the over saturated amoled screens, so for me the screen contest isn't even close. Larger battery, SD storage, and it's running 4.2.2 out of the box. It's also not locked to one carrier so it's significantly more likely to get updates long term.

If you're in to modding, the community will likely be larger than any other android phone on the market. Also as much as I dislike touchwiz it >>>> anything running sense 4.x

Now have you considered the upcoming HTC One? The newest version of sense launching on it seems to be getting much better reviews and the build quality should destroy the S4. The camera will be the wild card between the 2.

yeah I would lean towards the HTC One will be on every major carrier. I have the DNA and just flash a new rom last night to get sense 5 (the version that will be on the ONE) pretty ****ing nice.

I'm not into modding at all, so that won't play into it.

I'm leaning toward the One and S4 now. I thought I looked at the One and One X in the sores and didn't like it...but I think I may have confused it with something else?

Stick to the S4, imo. It will have better support thanks to Samsung.

Samsung seems to be tops when it comes to software updates as well now (completely opposite of when they started with Android). That's a factor if you aren't looking to do custom roms.

As far as I know, the One isn't out yet so you couldn't have seen it. I hate the name schemes of those phones, who the **** would think the One is better than the One X at first glance? Or the 400 other "One <insert letter here> devices? Get some new damn names HTC.

I think HTC has a bit more to worry about than just names... They're really sinking themselves...

That may be, but their naming is still ridiculous.

HTC One S
HTC One V
HTC One X
HTC One XL
HTC One X+

And yet the plain vanilla HTC One is the best of them all. It makes no sense.

I don't know FX I have been a long time Razr owner and haven't had one problem. A little slow to get jelly bean. I just got the update. But they don't really have anything to compete with the likes of the S4 right now anyway. But Motorola has always been rock solid for me. And I've owned a lot of them since the original Droid. But HTC and Samsung have always been OK too. LG Revolution on the other hand piece of ****. Back on subject if it was me I would go with the S4.

FX is the only one in the history of ever who thinks Motorola's build quality sucks I think FX's user quality just sucks.

Motorola build quality sucks? I just don't know what to say about that, a couple of phones I owned is rock solid, the Razr and Atrix 2. Samsung S3 is cheap plastic crap as compared to any Moto phones.

Back to topic, I'd take the Droid DNA, which is basically called HTC Butterfly in my country, absolutely love the phone. SLCD3 is awesome if you don't fancy punchy color or deep blacks on S.AMOLED screens and sharper too if you hate pentile matrix display. S4 might have an edge on cameras though, but I really REALLY HATE Samsung 'soap' formfactor and cheap-feel plastic housing, it feels like it isn't worth it to buy the phone because the phone itself screams cheap. As a comparison I tried Lumia 920, that had the best case on a phones ever, feels rock solid on hand and because it's heavy it feels sturdy as well.

I wouldn't call the S3 "cheap plastic crap." That's just not true. I owned a Droid X and my father uses the Razr. Motorola's build quality is excellent, but stop saying the S3 is crap when that's just not true. The build quality on the S3 is fine.

I've owned 2 Moto phones and 2 Moto tablets. Now own an S3, and I absolutely don't feel that it's "cheap plastic crap," relatively speaking. Moto builds solid phones, Samsung does as well. Having a glossy plastic back doesn't make it any more cheap plastic crap than having a full plastic case that just happens to be covered in a soft touch rubbery coating.

I've been kicking the **** out of my X2 because it's gotten to bad lately, but I haven't broken it. That includes throwing it against a concrete wall (in a $.30 case) and it hasn't broken. There's still not real physical damage, which may attest to the cheap case being better than expected, but the point remains. I've also punched the screen and slammed it face down on a table.

Yeah, Motorola build quality does not suck.

But anyway, I don't even know what phone I'm getting still. This dumb Andros 320GPU pisses me off. Half decent or not it doesn't compare to what the overseas people get, and that's what pisses me off.

It's the density and form factor. It feels flimsy in the hand, not solid. Some people interpret that as cheap. Build quality is an altogether different thing and the S3 is not terrible in that regard.

Feel is irrelevant anyway, since it in no way affects functionality. Besides, an S3 + case feels great.

S3 does not have poor build quality. There is nothing wrong with plastic. Feel preference is completely different. I prefer metal over plastic which is why I would buy the ONE over the s4. Some of you act like the phone comes with scuffs, cracked, light bleeding, bent, dents and all sorts of other weird ****.


Btw all the bolded items are all the issues related with new in box i5s. Infact I have yet to open more than a handful 100% pristine iphone 5 and I opened a **** ton of them removing lte sims. So as far as materials goes it doesn't really mater. If the phone can survive day to day abuse and work fine that's all its intended.

Don't be fooled. Just because a phone is heavy, or looks clunky doesn't mean it has good build quality. The iPhone 4's were heavy and looked solid, but shattered like crazy. Same with Moto, they might "feel" solid, but having owned three I can tell you they're junk. A have a friend who's owned the exact same three phones and had somewhat similar experiences. Samsung and HTC make far better phones. As does Apple, now that the iP5 lost the retarded glass backs and rim.

I've owned more Moto devices than you. I'm not fooled. My current tablet has taken a tumble down my concrete stairs and works perfectly. Just some scratches. I have many friends and family members with Moto phones, only one family member has problems and he's acknowledged he treats his phones like ****. You've got a whole forum telling you you're wrong and still won't come off it. That shouldn't be a big surprise to me though, considering your track record in P&R.
