For smartphone fanciers, the past couple of weeks have been better than Christmas. First, the One, HTC Corp.’s elegant new Android phone. Now, the Other — my nickname for Samsung Corp.’s big-screen superphone, the Galaxy S4.
Which to buy? They’re both sensational. I prefer the lovely design and smart screen interface of the One. But with its superb camera, immense video screen, and almost overwhelming array of geeky extras, the S4 is a gadget freak’s delight.
The five-inch display is driven by organic light-emitting diode, or OLED technology, that delivers richer, deeper colors than LCD screens. The Samsung’s processor has plenty of muscle, but the phone is a little light on internal memory. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
