Sometimes ya ain’t got time for dilly-dallyin’, spit-swappin’, or tall-tale-tellin’. Sometimes even dropping in a few time codes is too much to ask. Because sometimes the meat just needs to get out to the masses. This is one of those special times, and the meat we’re putting on the market is our jawing. Our opinions. Our stories. And the subject this week is the two biggest Android smartphone launches of the year, coming from the two biggest sworn enemies of the entire Android landscape.

That’s right: this is the episode where we talk HTC One vs Galaxy S IV. We’ve had the One for just a handful of hours at this point, but we’ve already unboxed it and thrown its UltraPixel camera against the Lumia 920’s PureView shooter in an in-depth comparison. We haven’t laid a finger on the Galaxy S IV (or SGS4, if you prefer) yet, but we’ve got enough rumor and speculation to fill a dump truck. So we thought it high time we got to chattin’ on it.

So strap your six-shooter on and stop asking yourself why you’re being subjected to this halfhearted old-timey lead-in: this week’s Taiwanese- and South Korean-flavored edition of the Pocketnow Weekly is ready to spend some time on your very own griddle. Send feedback, questions, and requests to podcast [AT] pocketnow [DOT] com.
