The Google Edition Samsung S4 and HTC One handsets which went on sale for pre-order last month started shipping today as promised, reports Android Central.

In case you’ve been living under a rock the past couple weeks, these are the (mostly) “stock Android” versions of the phones. Same hardware, with the software as God and Google (HOLOYOLO) intended, for better or for worse. They’re SIM-unlocked, with full LTE support here in the U.S., and with just a superficial control over the bootloader, so they’re developer-friendly.

Our preference is for pure Android goodness every time, buy if you’re still wondering whether one of these handsets is the right choice for you, check out our review roundup.
