Ever since they were released earlier in the year the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC One have proved to be big hits with consumers.  Earlier in the month it was revealed that we would see new Nexus Editions of these handsets go on sale offering the latest Android software without any of the manufacturers own software.  These two exciting new models are now available to purchase in the US.

There is no question that the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC One are two of the very best Android phones available and now consumers in the US can get their hands on Nexus versions of both handsets running a pure Android platform.  What this basically means is that the models are stripped of the manufacturers own software and user interfaces meaning every aspect of the model is Android.  The two handset have just gone on sale in the US and can be purchased directly from the Google Play store.  Pricing is quite similar for both models but the S4 is slightly more expensive at $649 compared to $599 for the HTC One.  Delivery is included in both of these prices.  Shipment dates are expected to be on the 9th of July so eager consumers will still have to wait a few days before they can give the devices a run for their money.

The arrival of these two brand new models has been eagerly awaited by scores of Android purists who are eager to see how some of the very best hardware available runs with a stock Android platform.  There has been the Nexus 4 device available for some while which also run pure Android but this model does have it limitations and does not offer specification anywhere near to the standard of what the HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S4 offer.   Another reason why these new models are destined to be a success is due to the fact that software updates are rolled out directly from Google.   Normally users of such devices will not receive an update until weeks after its release due to the manufacturers needing to develop the update to work with their own software that is included on the handset.  Check out our website for the latest Samsung Galaxy S4 offers

Android enthusiasts will be delighted by the news that the Nexus Editions of the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC One are now on sale in the US.  UK consumers will have their fingers crossed that these handsets will make an appearance this side of the pond.
