Spoorthy Vemula HTC: I dont know about you but touchwiz looks like shit
Brandon Baskin HTC all day every day. Samsung's phones have cheap builds and their software is a joke compared to Sense. Not even a debate in ny opinion.
Michael Campbell Samsung hands down even though the new sense is less intrusive it still purs the strong arm on the Onex where as Samsung new touxh wiz is more like stock ICS. I guess it is all in want you want

Aditya Parmeshwaran Always SAMSUNG !!!!!!!
Syed Usama Shah S3 all the way
Treg Andrews Both are good. Love my Droid Incredible 4G!
Paul Stone If Samsung could keep up with updates I might consider, but that's never going to happen, plus HTC's build quality has always been more robust, quality over quantity!
Coman Rollins You guys rock! just thought i would let you know
Just_Julia Samsung is back & hotter than ever. OS Update troubles are a thing of the past. Unbeatable at the moment
Joanna Enrique Ramos Samsung is the best!
Ernesto Estrada Samsung!!
Erick Vargas Ocampo both are great phones... but galaxy i better
Trever Pitts I say samsung is better
Marc OKelly HTC software is horrible
Brandon Wesley Deavours Galaxy s III!!!! Hands down because I had an HTC and that was the worst phone I've ever had!!!!!! And Samsung always has good phones anyway!!!!!!
Jeremiah Allan Johnson Galaxy s III > ANY HTC phone....
Brett Reardon Well, in this case, the S3 is clearly better. I've been a serious HTC fan since the Nexus One, but Samsung has seriously upper their game, while HTC has stumbled on some devices (this being a prime example of it).
Ken McDowell Samsung
Khalil Gonsalves Berine -- that's not an answer -- is it worth the time of learning a new phone? If Apple doesn't come out with something better looking than a brick I'm done with this crap!
Warren Saunders Both these bad boys ruling the world right now, but HTC do beat Samsung imo on build quality, other than that, I'd say neck an neck
Nick Guerrero G IPhone is a great phone and maybe 3 years ago it would have been better then androind, but androind now is a much better phone. I have own 2 iPhones. What the iPhone 5 has, android already had last year. IPhone is a few steps behind android.
Samuel Claudio I'm an hardcore HTC fan, but lately I've been wanting an galaxy s3.
Jose Angel Santiago htc makes great phones but their speaker quality on their devices really suck. Don't they sit down and test it for themselves? For that reason alone I will have to go with Samsung
Yegor Victor Vasilenko Neither. iPhone all the way!
Salima Veng Samsung!
Nick Guerrero G Galaxy 3! h.t.c is a really great phone with cool themes but ever sense the very first h.t.c they have had a problem with battery and a problem rebooting on its own a lot and frezzeing, even dough all android phones have some little problem to it h.t.c seems to have the most. I love h.t.c and I have own at lest 9 of them from 4 different phone compines. I am not downing h.t.c at all I am a fan but I think the galaxy 3 is a much better phone.
George Isenhart Samsung has always served me well but HTC's record speaks for itself, again it boils down to personal preference.
Ha Ma don't really like samsung -_- but i think the galaxy is better
Kevin Zhang HTC. might change once s3 bootloader unlocks
Gordon Christie Samsung HTC phones have been pretty poor since th s2 came out
Bernie Fen ok first off, i think this dogfight was an absolute mismatch..why would you even consider matching it up with the SGS3 considering it tops HTC Incredible on every feature across the board.. 1.2 vs 1.5?.. come'on now...
Khalil Gonsalves that or an iPhone?
Richard Waring Samsung note all they
Thomas A. Kautz there is no competition for the galaxy phones!!! if so ,it sure isnt the iphone!!!
