HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition available now

the Google Play editions of the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 are now available on Google Play.The good news is that the HTC One “Google Edition” still retains it’s thumpin Beats EQ baked into the core OS,along with full stereo front facing speaker functionality. Unfortunately, some of the best Sense 5 features  along with those you’ve grown to love in TouchWiz — wont be making the transition. This is afterall, vanilla Android experience. Still, the prospect of receiving prompt updates (without carrier meddling) is enough for some to make these sacrifices, and if that sounds like you, jump onto Google Play where you can purchase the new Google Play Edition HTC One for $600, or the Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Play for $650. Both devices begin shipping on July 9th.

Htc one gold edition
When the HTC announced the One, many people were impressed by the craftsmanship that went into making the smartphone and its cool aluminum look. So imagine how much more impressive the phone would look like if it was literally covered in gold.
That's exactly the thought that crossed the minds of the jewelry experts from Goldgenie, who have done a premium edition of the popular smartphone. The HTC One is now available with 24-carat gold plating, and, as expected, isn't what you'd call affordable. Not that the rest of the recent Goldgenie makeovers are.

Buy galaxy S4, S4 Active,htc One, And Many Others at 50% through AT&T [US]

If you're in the market for a new phone on AT&T, the time to buy is now. The company is running a promotion that knocks 50 percent off of all smartphones – including top-tier handsets like the Galaxy S4/Active or HTC One . To make this deal even more enticing, all activation fees are also getting waived through the end of the month. That's a hell of a deal.

Here's how it works: you select the device you want, add it to the cart, and go through the normal motions of selecting your plan (or upgrading your line if you're already an AT&T customer). The discount is applied to the phone in the cart just before you check out. And that's pretty much it – you just scored your new phone at half price.
But here's where things get interesting. This deal is good for both one- and two-year agreements, so you can essentially pay just a bit more than the normal two-year contract price and only be locked in for one year. Or, you can sign up for two years, and get your phone dirt cheap. Either way you go, this is a killer deal. It's over on June 30th, so the time for choosing is now.

Galaxy s5 mock-up

Of course, a unibody design has its drawbacks, namely the inability to remove the battery, which is bound to affect travellers and heavy users.

The move to aluminium from plastic is though to be part of Samsung’s “Design 3.0” initiative to make its hero devices more competitive in physical attractiveness as much as software innovations.
