5 Galaxy S5 features that the HTC One (M8) lacks
After we took a look at some of the best differentiating features of the HTC One (M8) in comparison with the Samsung Galaxy S5, it's now time for Samsung's flagship to strike back. Just to refresh our memories, in our previous article, we highlighted the following HTC One (M8) features:

  • BoomSound stereo speakers
  • Premium design
  • More accurate screen
  • Uniform user interface
  • Seamless refocus functionality

Wow, these are some wonderful features, but sadly, the Galaxy S5 will most probably never have them. Now, let's see what Sammy's proposition has in its arsenal to counter HTC's maneuvers!

Yup. He should get a M8 if he prefers showing off over functionality.

Your friend has really low self - esteem if he can let someone else dissapoint him over his cell phone purchase.

HTC is on its way down. The only HTC store I know has close shop permanently. I don't even know where their support center is via Samsung 4 support centers easily accessible to me.

If you value the design so much go buy an iPhone. It can have bad design. Doesn't matter. Performance is what matters.

Yeah like M8 doesnt have great performance, reality check people, M8 is faster than S5 it has been even proven it is also faster than Iphone 5s which makes it the best smartphone combining looks and performance. Aghh the ignorance.Go ahead, check it if you are not afraid to see your dearly beloved Galaxy trailing back, check youtube for Phonebuff's videos of Samsung S5 vs M8 OR Iphone5s vs M8, I can't post links

The BS is just dumb and obvious. These sorts of PA articles make me think I am reading FBGR where every "article" is some sort of trollbait.
