samsung galaxy s4 vs htc one one back aa

With the Google Experience Samsung Galaxy S4 being announced at Google I/O, HTC obviously felt a need to answer back. In typical, brash, 2013 HTC style, HTC employee Leigh Momii tweeted a not so subtle jab at the Galaxy S4 and it’s choice of build materials, calling it a piece of plastic running stock Android.

Right after the news broke, Jeff Gordon a Senior Global Online Communications Manager at HTC, released a statement saying, “HTC is not currently planning a ‘Nexus Edition’ of the HTC One.”

So if you were hoping for an all metal Nexus-like smartphone, it appears as if those hopes have been dashed. Of course, just because HTC isn’t planning a “Nexus Edition” currently, it doesn’t mean it can’t change its tune. It wouldn’t be the first time a company used the ploy, so we are keeping our fingers (and our toes) firmly crossed.

Would you be interested in an HTC-made “Google experience” device? Would you pick a Google Experience HTC One over a Google Experience Samsung Galaxy S4? Let us know in the comments.
