HTC One 2014 vs LG G2 vs iPhone 5s: specs comparison
In case you somehow missed the news flood, the long-awaited HTC One 2014 just got official. 

A rite of passage ritual is, then, in order. Instead of lighting incense, however, we usually like to celebrate new flagship announcements by ruthlessly pitting companies' new star pupils against the toughest out there. The subsequent smoke clears out in a day or two, by which time we usually have a fairly good idea of the device's odds of survival.

With the first round over, it's time to look at exactly what the new One has to offer when compared with relatively older models on the market. That's important, as a sizable portion of the consumer base will need to be lured over to HTC's camp, and for that to happen, it needs to offer something truly compelling. If you ask HTC's PR, the Duo Camera on the One 2014 is just that ace up its sleeve, but it would be presumptuous to call it at just that. Sure, the LG G2, for example, is the less impressive powerhouse of the two, but it's also cheaper, and the iPhone 5s, as always, still offers plenty of reasons to pick it up. Apple's compact phone is considerably more expensive than LG's aging flagship these days, but it still puts that excellent build to the table, and it's often one of very few choices on the market for those looking for a truly pocket-friendly device.

So, put side-by-side, how do these three stack against each other? The answer awaits right below.
