Ever since the Galaxy S II, Samsung has released doppelganger phones that the average consumer could not differentiate from one another without a spec sheet.  i was personally hoping for some design and material changes. Sadly we have been introduced some wonderful touchwiz features accompanied by only a hardware/software refresh of the outgoing flagship.  Touchwiz and this phone are not inseparable, and there will be a time shortly in the future where many of these new features will no longer be specific to one product in Samsung's line up, thus diminishing their flagship.  Without a material/build quality upgrade, I won't spend 800/600/400/200 dollars on a plastic phone, when my preferred build of android mostly stock.  i would much prefer the One for my own purposes, as I have no need for the second party features personally and will strip TW or Sense right off whatever phone I own.  Sense at least has slimmed down significantly. TW is still somewhat garish... however much I loved my Captivate, my Galaxy S II (Epic 4g Touch) and my Galaxy S II Skyrocket,  HTC makes nicer phones, and will continue to do so while Samsung caters to the lowest common denominator.  Good for Samsung, but not for me.

 @richardyarrell  Sales figures mean everything to the company. The consumer on the other hand has no investment in their sales numbers, and though at times sales can be used as a guide for finding a good device, the lack of numbers for another device can easily be chalked up to a lacking elsewhere in the company (marketing, supply, etc.) and not particularly in the quality of the product.  You are overly aggressive with your opinion, and you will only serve to drive people further away from a product you think is superior.  You will be the reason someone looks at the One more seriously, as they should.  I thank you for your trolling.
