Well there is one thing you will get with the Galaxy that you wont get with anything HTC. Thats android updates.
Oh and before people say thats why you root your phone, EVERYBODY DOES NOT want to root there phone.
Oh that's one thing you get with apple, lg, HTC, Sony and not with Samsung and that is high quality build and not some cheap a.ss plastic that low end phones get. Also Samsung always an upgrade behind nexus devices and usually get updates a month before HTC. I can't stand that cheap a.ss plastic feel Samsung has. sh*t even my piece of sh*t blackberry storm had better build quality than any Samsung phone. How hard is it for Samsung to use high quality material to make their phone.
