HTC executives lambast Galaxy S4

Drama Shot

HTC’s “quietly brilliant” days are gone, it seems. After handing out a can of Pringles chips and water outside Galaxy S4’s launch venue, HTC executives have an opinion to share on the Mobile Unpacked event and the phone.

Speaking to CNET, HTC President Jason MacKenzie said Samsung spent more on marketing the announcement than showcasing innovation.

Meanwhile, HTC’s CMO Ben Ho also had some not-so kind words for the Korean giant. Ho claimed Galaxy S4 was “more of the same” with plastic body and a larger screen.

The statements from the executives obviously come with some praise for their own device – HTC One. However, only time will tell which device will win the market share in the coming months.
