Samsung should learn from HTC. The HTC One, although, doesn't remind iPhone 5, but its comparisons are evident.


    The device shares some similar moves with the BlackBerry Z10. Well, let's appreciate the freshness around the HTC One. It's much more gorgeous than first iPhone or even Samsung Galaxy S3. The company says that the device comes with three colors: Black, Silver and Red.
