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)...

galaxy s5 for sure
everyone liked the s5 plastic, not aluminum which will be scratched very fast, and the camera and battery ? no way, i think the htc m8 wil still have a bad camera and battery
but still we can change our mind, both phones are not released, so we have to wait

Everyone liked the S5 ? Really ? HTC One is not yet launched and S5 is already launched. You can't judge a phone which is not launched yet. I've decided not to get the S5. If the leaks are right, will get the HTC One or Sony Z2.

Why are they comparing a colored band aid against a piece of metal art?

because the piece of metal art will be bought by no one while the band aid will be everywhere :)

lol weird how wannabe brands like nokia and htc have pushed so much and once were the best in the business now after a series of horrible phones they can't even breathe .. look at nokia like 36% of sales come from dirt cheap 520.. and in second place the 620 maybe it's name or 630 (i don't care) .. they used to spam everything with advertisement and brand recognition thing .. no one did it better than nokia .. and look .. they are laughable now .. you watch them fight for their lives and it's truly funny .. Why everyone loves Samsung and Apple? and they mock Nokia and Htc .. there must be a reason other than advertisement ... when you get to the store and want to buy a phone, well i'd choose S5 .. it's packed to the teeth with awesome features plus everybody else respects it.. if you buy lg/htc/nokia/blackberry/sony you'll spend the next year explaining to people why you bought this while you could have bought the S5, the 5s, or a Note. It's just the way it goes.. Samsung is not only a phone company search samsung on wikipedia and you'll have a creepy feeling being a hater when reading about samsung. #KeepHatin

Htc- quality

Samsung- plastic

Why is Samsungs phone division has no quality material being used, but in there microwave and Tv, and every other Samsung products they use metal, steel, and aluminuim,,,,?

This guy Murtizan and head of phones division is and needs there butts kicked in,,,,,

nokia, nexus, lg and iphone 5c are plastic phones, and they are no way better than samsungs plastic touch " according to most of the websites "
btw, who said that the aluminum is the definition of premium ??

The feel and touching is what makes a product streamlined and sensuous . When touching an iP5 and HtcOne vs any Samsung Galaxy phones it's tacky squeaky makes noise.

There is a dependent on what and how many layers of aluminium is used when making the phone. Yes aluminium is cheaper than stainless steel and metal, Zinc, and cooper and iron, but what's amazing is plastic is dearer than aluminuim to buy, how unusual
