HTC One design with Samsung Galaxy S4 software features?

I really like the HTC One's design and the Samsung Galaxy S4's software features (like S Translator).
If I bought an HTC One, could I put the Samsung Galaxy S4 software features on via a "ROM"?

Nope.

The exclusive samsung ones are always exclusive. You may get something similar via an app but not the exact samsung feature.

If you want the samsung features so much just buy an S4. It's design is nice. If you're talking about metal vs plastic then the plastic is much better if you drop your phone as it won't chip, it won't overheat, it allows better signal through the phone and it uses gorilla glass 3 which the HTC One doesn't use so the Galaxy won't scratch easily.

^TBH I prefer the HTC One's design by a long way.

The123kid, I would suggest waiting for a HTC ONE Nexus as the core android experience might be worth checking out if you don't like the HTC Sense.

Finally, someone else who realises that metal (especially a relatively soft metal like aluminium) is a poor material to be making phones out of. Plastic is, generally, much more hard wearing and looks a lot less abused after you've had the phone for a fair while.

Hahahaha that again. I actually agree, too. Overall, it depends on the design. When I had the iPhone 5, I wasn't too bothered. It's small and all that. The HTC One kinda scared me. I knew quite quickly I wasn't gonna keep it, and so worried all the time I might drop it. And yep, the Note 2 I had fell twice, and it had no marks. The battery cover stayed firmly in place. Having said that, I had the Nokia N91. Everyone worried about the small hard drive it had, and the slider. I dropped it twice with the slider open, and it took absolutely zero damage.

I still 'like' metal designs. But they are not better per se. The Wave 3 was clever, but not pretty.
