Samsung Galaxy S5 vs HTC One (M8): preliminary comparison

0. phoneArena 25 Mar 2014, 11:12 posted on

If we had to make a list of the most highly anticipated smartphones right now, then the Samsung Galaxy S5 would probably stand right at the very top of it. The handset is expected to sell by the boatloads once it is released in April, landing in the pockets of both loyal Samsung followers and anyone looking for a capable high-end Android device. But the competition is definitely not going to just stand and watch. Samsung's latest and greatest Android phone will have to face a number of tough opponents on its way to commercial success, and one of the toughest among them will be the HTC One (M8)...

I agree. They are putting waay too much importance on speakers for a pocket device. They are sacrificing the whole carry-ability as a mobile device as well as other possible cool features such as screen size within the smaller body.

I'm not gonna buy a phone just because it has sleek metal body and huge stereo speakers.

When you have people who keep buying, you dont have to listen to anyone. Like everyone is saying, the s5 phone is OKAY, but it will STILL sell more than HTC. If samsung keeps hearing that, they will keep making platic and feeding people touchwiz gimmics, and oversaturating the public eyes with Advertisement.

we dont mod the phones like the old days i used to build them for fun and put the phone in a clear body with led lights and all thats gone the way of the iden nextel that i loved they have tvs and all other stuff that we could not do 10 years ago. htc listerned and put sd card slot in and louder speakers and aluminium body just like everyone asked them to do.

louder speakers take space and the amps and cooling for them remember its aluminium heat sync not so well also what if just what if the htc does have finger print scanner. then what plus you can root and customize the buttons they said they will allow rooted phones to be covered under the advantage program.

AMOLED screens are my favorite. I prefer them over SLCD 3 panels. As far as Sense 6, I'd have to demo both the new Touchwiz and Sense 6 together to say which one I prefer.

The ATIV SE is rumored to have a 13MP camera, 2GB of RAM, A Quad core Snapdragon processor, and a Full-HD display. I'm sorry but your NOKIA lineup doesn't stand a chance.

If we're talking about blowing up people's minds wait for the Note 4 in the Android market.

Z2 doesn't want to compete here in the U.S. which is sad. GSV will still top sales against the M8
