One Direction seem to have more of an international reputation (ie we have heard of them here in NZ). If you decide that current popularity reflects success in the field of popular music, then One Direction would get my vote.

I would also suggest that it is simply based upon a matter of personal opinion. Given that One Direction is younger, some older listeners may fell more drawn to The Wanted, or vice versa. Personally, I like The Wanted better.

According to wikipedia, One Direction is quite the breakout band.  They won a number of awards in 2011.  They also won everything they were nominated for.  Here is a link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/One_Direction#Awards_and_nominations

The Wanted also won a number of awards, but lost some too.  However, they were nominated for more awards.  It is matter of taste, of course.
