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'm going to get an S5 when it comes out. I don't mind the plastic, just as long as I can remove and swap the battery. Also most people are going to smack a plastic case on their phone and cover the metal anyway, making it plastic.

You've got very good excuses but the fact is HTC don't have time in the world to contact every of their current and future customers to explain. Luckily they have you, so Good luck to both you and HTC lol.

Nokia and HTC are flop now.
Samsung rules.
You haters might hate it.. but its the sad bitter truth that you need to understand.
I know its a big problem for someone like u who has little space in his brain because its already filled with sh*tty fanboyism.. but my child. Try hard.. try very hard and you just might succeed

May god be with you.
Amen.

First of all you just went full fanboy, never go full fanboy.

Second of all what the hell does God have to do with this.. Also you shouldn't shove your God in someones elses face if they have a diffrent religion than you, its very impolite.

What will sell more? S5 no way! S4 will sell better than S5 and new One will take the crown this time with that quite 'reasonable' price tag!
Battery and price are 'reasonable'. Definitely I bet all my million dollars on this One! I'll bet my other millions on your Nokia Android pic if come true!

Hello, Have you even used a Galaxy S4 device in your life? I mean personal expericence, not reading in comments and posts. You are telling me that I MUST pay additional to a company, which is so great in making wonderful products, so I can get the normal 2 year support for my 500$ phone? And you find that as an additional benefit from the company? It is making huge profit out of this deal and you got nothing.. My SGS4 is working perfectly fine without any lag and even my iPhone fanboy cousin found it astonishing fast! And on software side the Samsung's flagships are KILLING others! You get all the gestures, air commands, multitasking and the only company which is a real threat in software competition is LG! And the S Health which is the 1st of his kind is not even mentioned! So, please, 1st use the phone which you are typing against, than make some conclusions based on YOUR usage and compare the real things you get. I was HTC fanboy, but when you look not biased on both + and - it is clear who is the winner in S5 vs M8. :)

I don't understand the hype for 930. Had 920 and screen irresponsive in a month. Googling for a solution and found that issue reported by umpteen users without solution. By the way I hated those large bezels, heavy weight and worst windows UI. I hope Nokia will improve their screens this time.

I've never been a fan of WP but i must say WP 8.1 seems to have caught up finally.
8.1 should have been WP at launch
Sadly it's not yet released and I don't think ppl care anymore, too little too late MSFT

Of course the Galaxy S5!
What HTC has done this year is simply apathetic...

For the general public they don't and won't complain, for us techies and geeks no phone will satisfy our needs, unless we custom make our phones with best materials, best battery, best CPU, GPU, glass, and features should be ultra speced, not high end,,,,?

Why would the general public prefer a huge 5 incher over a more compact 5 incher? Actually they are still portable items...

I believe a 4.5 to 5.0 is great and have an option to buy the both with same features like SonyZ mini

Hmm, I hoped that I will find somebody to discuss about this certain topic, but seems the time hasn't come.

How do you propose to modify if the manufacturers are sealing up their phones like Fort Knox? Really. You can't have it both ways. If you want a metal phone, and have the ability to be that Tech geek you want to be, stress to them you want to ability to do so by allowing certain accessibility. Otherwise, your tech limits are no more than the average consumer. Let's get that straight right now.

your english sucks but what art is saying is gs5 is not a worth while step up from the gs4 other then the finger print scanner, its like when the android world made fun of apple fans for getting the 5 then 5s just for the finger print part, htc is a bigger upgrade then the gs5 this year

john what modifying are you talking about if you are really that good at modding you can take the htc back cut it mig weld it and do what ever with it, but you keep saying mod we dont switch parts inside phones anymore they are not compatible with other parts. i used to do that back 7 years ago
