Buying an Android phone based on what the carrier or phone maker does to the AOSP experience is about the dumbest thing you can do.  

LOL, doesn't sound like you've ever used Motoblur. Those stock rom features mentioned above are actually not bad.

HTC dropped the ball long ago and I doubt they'll be fit to play for a while. They really need to drop the unibody designs and bring back expandable memory and replaceable batteries. Plus the way they have named their line up is just confusing e.g. One X, One X+ and now the One? That seems a bit backwards to me.

+1 to that. HTC has been out of the android competing game for quite a while now. Frankly said they are losing a large portion of the android market compared to other manufacturers though not as bad as Motorola.

I agree that HTC has dropped the ball; but I feel that some collaboration with Google on a device might help them find their way again.

 

I prefer having a removable battery too. Expandable memory is also a good thing (but apparently too hard to use for average joe)

HTC should really get a crack at building a nexus device again... I've been impressed with the build quality of HTC's flagships more than any other manufacturer. However, it would have to have a removable battery for me to even consider buying it :/

I've been weighing up getting an S4 and selling my Nexus 4 - I think I'm leaning towards keeping the nexus atm

I want to get an S4 but I'm not sure it'll be that much of an upgrade over my S3. Considering they're going to include a few of the software tweaks with the next android 4.2 update available to the S3, I'm not sure it's really worth it.

It'll be a huge upgrade over my S2 Skyrocket... HORRID phone! Battery literally lasts like 4 hours if I actually use it for 30 minutes, then close out all apps... frown.gif

An S4 won't be much of an upgrade compared to the S3. Both phones will and has endless support with ROM's due to it's unlocked bootloader and easy portability of aosp rom's etc. But seriously the S4 looks the same as the S3 just 0.2 inches bigger.

But with a full HD screen and better battery life.

Has better battery life been shown in tests yet?

I don't think so but hopefully being that it's 2600mah it'll provide a bit more juice even with the full HD screen.
