By the way: Even if the HTC one receives any updates S – it runs well with the current version and is still a highly recommended class processing phone for under 300,-€. In addition, it is priced very attractive for performance and HTC typically comes with a high-quality housing – thus gives the Samsung Galaxy S4 while the newer version of Android, offers a total but less hardware at the higher price.
