You can with videos...just like you see some people saying with Xperia Z!

And with the XZ everyone was praying the screen on CES in the first hands-on and now some people say its to washout and some like it even more.

The thing is it depends from person to person but in that video it's undeniable that the screen was way more grey than the nexus 4.

And I note saying that it's a bad screen, most certainly will be better than XZ (at least on viewing angles)...but people have to calm down and realize that every device has flaws.

In the HTC One we might find the famous death grip of the iPhone 4, because the antennas are on the metal back and are only separated by thin lines of plastic. We might find coting problems and scratches due to the painted aluminum. We can find poor battery, because Sense 5 has this new service always on and looking for stuff in background.

Only time will tell but phones with perfect specs and features on paper...always have their flaws

I have just been down to phones 4 u in Oxford Street (Bond Street) and played with the HTC One, it is better than the z in these departments which are major ones aswell imo.
*much better speakers,
*much better and much louder audio in headphones (for once I am actually not going to need power amp)
*Camera and video is better
*screen is better
*much faster and smoother
*UI is better on HTC
these are my opinions based on using both phones now

Drawbacks compared to Z is lack of memory card slot and seems the uk is only getting the 32gb model (which kinda sucks tbh but the phone was so good I had to get it) and the lack of being water/dust proof.
Design wise I think they are equal both in looks and design/feel.
The One is slightly smaller than the Z in height and thats noticeable, phone looks small for its size tbh.

Now for the above reasons has led me to cancel my pre order for the z and pre order the one on vodafone 37 unlimited mins/texts, 1gb data, 2gb wifi, also comes with free case, free speaker, and urbeats headsets.
Current Phones:
Samsung Galaxy S5 Black 16gb

Previous owned Favourite phones:
HTC One X white 32gb
HTC One S Black 16gb
HTC Sensation XE Black
Samsung Galaxy S2 Black 16gb
Sony Ericsson Xperia ARC Silver

You actually cannot tell from a video. We have people who have viewed both devices (the Xperia and the One), who state the One is superior.

I have personally compared the HTC one X and the Xperia, and the One X has the superior screen. It is also superior to the Nexus 4's screen.

So, if the HTC One's screen is superior to the One Xs, and the One X's screen is superior to the Nexus 4s, how can the HTC One have an inferior screen to the Nexus 4?

Makes no sense.

Also, please read about how the antena works, it won't suffer from the same issues that the Iphone did.

I also had a play with an HTC One today. If anyone has any really, really basic questions that I might know the answer to after just a few minutes of playing with it in a shop despite possessing no discernible expertise, I'll do my best to answer. (I also had a quick play with a Galaxy Note II and an Xperia Z in other shops a little earlier).

Wow touchy aren't you, no need for name calling we aren't at school you know! It was simply a kind gesture, your information was wrong, you provided no evidence. I know it S600 is quicker I just wanted you to post the proof.

Really you are in the Sony Xperia Z forum why don't you move along to the HTC One and boast there instead and leave us in peace!
