Remember the Samsung Galaxy S4 reveal last week? The odd presentation with the skits and questionable acting coupled with a look at an admittedly amazing new phone? Did you know that HTC was also there, sending PR ninjas to infiltrate the Samsung-ready crowd with demo units of the upcoming HTC One?
While Samsung was prepping their presentation HTC had units on the ground, milling about the crowds gathered at Radio City Music Hall and Times Square armed with hands-on units of the upcoming HTC One phone. Now granted, the video below is promotional so obviously they’re only going to show off those that were impressed by the device, especially one young lady who proclaimed “This is better than Samsung.” Oh snap.
To be fair, the HTC One looks like an amazing device, and the new Sense 5 user interface is an incredibly unique and risky direction to take. The specs aren’t anything to sneeze at either:
