Samsung Galaxy S6 vs HTC One M9: what's your favorite? (poll results)



The Samsung Galaxy S6 or the HTC One M9? The question has popped up in everyone's minds right after the two companies unveiled their flagship phones a few days ago at MWC 2015, and there is only one way to decide which phone is better: ask you, our readers.

We've done this right after the announcement, and now the results are in and it is a very close call, as the votes are nearly split.

Nonetheless, we don't have perfect parity: there is one device that emerges to be the winner.

With some 56% of the votes, the winner in this first big fight of the best upcoming Android phones for 2015 is... the Galaxy S6! HTC's new One M9, on the other hand, grabbed some 44% of the votes, finishing as a close runner-up. Even if it manages to replicate these results in real-life sales, the One M9 would be a success, but will it? And will Samsung's bet that many people will buy its hugely redesigned Galaxy S6 pay off? Only time will tell.

No surprise. S6 Edge is the best smartphone to date hands down. LG has competition next quarter.

Yeah, that's aboslutely absurd that people hate Samsung that much that they'll vote for a 2 year old phone design with an overheating SoC versus a phone a year ahead of its time.

A lot of people don't care for Samsung...

I will admit that I never cared for Samsung or took any android phone seriously before the S6/S6 Edge. Now I am thinking of getting one.

In the beginning i voted m9. After seeing a few close videos on the m9, I regret my vote. Tho, I only wanted to vote for S6 edge. The s6 doesn't deserve my vote

Very. Exynos is a 14 nm chip which is miles better than SD's 20 nm. Also they have Wolfson DAC audio chip.

16. jesusnexo unregistered

I though Exynos was Samsungs try hard to do what Apple did with their A-series CPUs... Who would have though they actually did good

Personally I like Black Sapphire S6 Edge. I hope the black color is well at hiding smudges.

18. jesusnexo unregistered

exactly what i saw from the pics... the black one seems to have less reflection... for fingerprints i can always use a clear case, i just dont want a glossy phone

If Samsung is my next choice, S6 Edge is my phone..

It should be the other way round. You shouldn't choose a brand you should choose a phone.

Stop your over analysis, it's the same thing!

20. tech2

No such thing as over analysis. Let me explain what I meant my simple minded friend. I meant one should not choose a brand and then buy what that brand best offers but one should choose which is the best phones as per their requirements and then think about the brand's after sale service, availability, updates, update track record, etc. There's a difference.

I really don't like both and it looks likethe Z4 isn't gonna be that great either.I don't wanna wait for the G4 because I need to get a phone soon otherwise I'm wasting money with the T-Mobile jump program. Ill end up getting the s6 unfortunetly.

14. jesusnexo unregistered

you say it as if youre buying potato? the phone is great. At the end of the day the phone is a flagship, regardless of samsung or htc. An oca core 3GB phone with 2K display is pretty damn good. Just because you have super high expectations, doesnt mean the phone is s**tty.

But that glass back is just horrible! add in that protruding camera and it makes it even worse for the durability of the phone. Alsothe batter might be troubling.

Umm. T-Mobile just started the jump program. You need 6 months to qualify for the discount. Any payments made prior to the start of the program do not count toward the progress of the promotion. So technically, no one is qualified for jump yet. .

I had no credit so I had to pay half straight up. I was eligible the day I switched to t-mobile.

T-Mobile started the JUMP program a long time ago.. And last time I checked you can JUMP whenever you want, up to twice a year.

Samsung did a great job with Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.
