Apple iPhone 5s vs HTC One
Interface and Functionality
We know, we know, it’s yet another battle between iOS and Android. With the recent introduction of iOS 7, however, it’s been updated with some flare to rival the modern presentation style of HTC’s Sense 5 UI. Visually, the two are simply oozing with kicking animations and they pay close attention to small details that help to accentuate their meticulous designs. From what we can gather, iOS 7’s “flatter” and layered design has its pleasing moments, like how there’s a softening effect to things in the background as we pull down to access the notification center. However, Sense 5 has a unique look of its own, especially with its social networking driven HTC BlinkFeed homescreen.
Multi-tasking and notifications are handled in the same manner with the two, but being Android and all, the HTC One benefits by providing us with a few more functions directly from the notifications panel –like being able to archive emails and share screen shots via social networking.
At the same time, we’ve come to enjoy the wealth and diversity that Android has to offer with its set of organizer apps. For example, Google Now has far greater reach in keeping us to date with certain things that Siri just can’t quite compete with.
Seeing that it has the bigger screen, we naturally get a more spacious keyboard layout with the HTC One’s Sense keyboard. Streamlining the process, it even includes various numbers and punctuations all from the main layout to lessen our need to jump to its secondary layout. Well, it’s still pretty darn good on the iPhone 5s thanks to its simple layout, responsive performance, and killer auto-correct feature.
Processor and Memory
When you’re so damn fine, it’s only fitting to be graced with some spiffy internals – and that’s exactly what we get here! Specifically, the iPhone 5s jumps the trend by offering us with a one-of-a-kind dual-core 1.3GHz Apple A7 processor that’s based on 64-bit architecture, which is something we haven’t seen before in the mobile space. Meanwhile, even though it’s considered aged nowadays, the quad-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 SoC with 2GB of RAM in the HTC One continues to be a formidable contender. Overall, we can’t complain about the performances, seeing that they’re responsive and quick with all operations, but we find the iPhone 5s to be snappier. It’s still pretty good with the HTC One, but it’s more prone to the occasional stutter every now and then.
Neither offers expandable storage, so we’re left to carefully make use of their internal capacities. With the iPhone 5s, it’s available in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB capacities – while the HTC One if offered in 32GB and 64GB.

Internet and Connectivity
Giving us all the necessary amenities with the web browsing experience, like speedy 4G LTE speeds and buttery smooth navigational controls, we can’t complain about the experience offered by both. However, with its larger and higher resolution display, the HTC One just seems more ideal for the occasion.
Being flagships and all, these two giants are made available in a variety of options – CDMA and GSM flavors with LTE support to be exact. Additionally, they’re outfitted with all the usual suspect of connectivity features. They include aGPS, Bluetooth 4.0, and dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi. Nevertheless, the HTC One packs on other things, like NFC and an IR blaster, that extends its features set.
