Another highly praised phone, HTC Corp.'s One, has a lot of clutter as well.
The display on the One is slightly smaller than S4's, but it has a higher resolution.
The One sounds better, too, with front-facing speakers, while the S4 has a speaker on the back.
The One might be the one for you if you watch a lot of video and listen to a lot of music.
But the One feels heavier and bulkier, and its battery holds less charge than the S4.
