Is it safe to charge an HTC One with a Samsung Galaxy S4 charger?

Is it safe to charge an HTC One with a Samsung Galaxy S4 charger? And vice-versa?

Safe? Yeah... But the One I tested for 2 weeks wouldn't charge with the charger that came with my SGS2... Nor with the one from my N9. Someone explained it to me, and, tbh, I didn't listen :p

Probably those weren't high enough power. Suspect very little difference in output of s4 and HTC1 chargers.

Perfectly safe, I often use the charger from an old phone until it breaks, before getting the charger for a new phone out of the packaging. I only didn't do that when moving from my S2 to my Note 2 because the Note 2 charger provides more power, so charges the Note 2's huge battery more quickly.

I wouldn't worry bro. HTC tried to stop giving chargers with phones as you can use old chargers with them. E.G. i use my sgs2 charger on my nexus 7/ps4 controller/note 3 (when i need a boost and that uses usb3)

ps4 controller
One of the best things about the PS4 is being able to charge the controller with my phone charger haha.

its ruddy handy with its current lifespan :D Any good games matty?

True, I'm used to my 360 controller lasting weeks, not hours. I hope they somehow improve it :|.

I've only got Killzone, which I rather enjoyed, and Need for Speed, which is pretty, but not all that good (and you can't pause the game, even offline, which is stupid).

I'm looking forward to Metal Gear Solid, DriveClub, Thief and Watchdogs. It's just a shame the four of them will cost nigh on £200 in all oO!!

What did you get with yours and what are you looking forward to that's coming out later this year?

The list so far...

Killzone
Battlefield 4
Assassins creed 4
Call of duty ghosts (upgrade)
knack
NBA 2K14

plus resogun, don't starve and contrast...

(all bought with trade ins...)

hoping for

watchdogs,
the division
destiny...
will get the ps+ edition of driveclub.

but she looks soo cool sitting under my tv with an orange glow :D

Also your not one of the guys using the pornhub app are you... apparently 100,000's use it daily...

matt101101 / MOD  Jan. 9, 2014 at 01:23

Bloody hell, at 50 quid a pop, they're paying you too much if you've got all those games haha!

I'd forgotten about destiny, that looks quite good too actually. I'm looking forward to Gran Turismo 7 (I know, it's years away), I miss GT3 and GT4 from my PS2 days...

No, I'm not using the PornHub app haha. I haven't got any apps installed on it, I only use my games consoles for gaming, hence getting a PS4 instead of an Xbone.

i got netflix on it but thats it...

well i paid £45 a pop but game price beat CEX which meant i once went in and they offered me 120 for about 30 games... left with 295 ;)

I don't do Netflix, their choice is too limited for my liking. Music streaming has been nailed by Google and Spotify, video streaming is still a way off, IMHO.

I got my Killzone and NFS for £30 and £40, respectively, off eBay. I thought an average of £35 quid a game wasn't too shabby for two launch titles. I was too busy to use my PS4 for a few weeks after it came out, turns out buying my games a fortnight or so after launch saved me about 30 quid, not bad!

Treab  Jan. 9, 2014 at 02:32

Not bad at all. Personally i think £45 a pop isn't bad... most games are at £1 an hour nothing else comes close to that really (hell the cinema with my nus card is £7.20 without nearly £10 for 90 mins...)

Netflix is good enough for me atm... would like more but watching alot of programmes like mythbusters etc that said at £6 a month its decent enough still better value than the tv license and the dross they produce... xfactor CBB BB etc..

Also why are you still up lazy sod... aint you got work tomorrow... i know i do but im on nights so breaking my sleeping pattern whats your excuse..
