Who wins in design: HTC One or Xperia Z?

What do you see first in a device? While many here first think of specs as a deciding factor in buying a smartphone, it is proven that design speaks louder in most user choices. So much so, that the fact that Samsung has confirmed that the Galaxy S4 is made of plastic has left many fans disappointed. Especially because the 2013 Premium devices, like the Sony Xperia Z and HTC One, bring more glass and aluminum in their composition than any other raw material. So before the Galaxy S4 comes out of the box, We decided to test the design of two of the current giants in the market: HTC One x Xperia Z, which one has the best design?

HTC One or Xperia Z, which one has the best design? / AndroidPIT
<p>First of all, I must point out that the design of these devices is completely different, so once I looked over the HTC One I noticed right away that this device has come to bring elegance to smartphones running Google's OS. The Xperia Z is already more robust and can be defined as much safer than beautiful due to the features that make it waterproof and dustproof.</p><div class='code-block code-block-2' style='margin: 8px auto; text-align: center; display: block; clear: both;'>

It is also inevitable to associate the HTC One with the iPhone 5, either because it is made of aluminum, or because of the white color, finally, the device also brings certain accessories that remind us of the Apple smartphone, such as the pin to insert the SIM card, for example.

However, the best part of all this is that there are different handsets for different users and each one draws attention in a unique way. In my opinion, the Xperia Z is a big awkward device, already the HTC One which most closely resembles what I look for in a smartphone these days.

And in your opinion, which of these two devices is the best in terms of design?
