HTC One vs Sony Xperia Z vs Samsung Galaxy S III: spec comparison

HTC One vs Sony Xperia Z vs Samsung Galaxy S III: spec comparison
The HTC One has just been unveiled and it is a truly gorgeous device that also happens to be a powerhouse in terms of silicon and pure specs. It is one of the first devices to get unveiled by the big name phone makers in 2013 after Sony brought Xperia Z, but it still has to deal with last year’s competition.

And while we are still waiting for the elephant in the house, the Samsung Galaxy S IV, to arrive on March 14th in New York, we can still look at how the HTC One changes the existing phone landscape.

And it certainly does change it - with an HTC UltraPixel Camera with superior low-light performance, a unibody aluminum design, and a brand new version of HTC Sense on top of Android. You have probably already heard about all that, now take a look at the pure specs, the stuff that gets geeks excited, and the true backbone of any smartphone.

With a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, the HTC One can definitely stand its ground against all the rest. What is it facing as a competition right now? Take a look right below.
