HTC One Google Play Edition vs HTC One
Again, one would tend to believe that a stock experience would be less draining with battery, but quite frankly, we don’t notice anything dramatic in this comparison. With our normal usage, the two are more than equipped to provide us with one whole day of battery life under 4G LTE connectivity.


Conclusion:

Same hardware, different experience – that’s essentially what boils down to here. In the end, it essentially comes to which experience is most preferable to you. As we’ve clearly pointed out, the HTC Sense 5 brings out all of the qualities that would snatch up individuals that live on social networking. In contrast, the stock Android would be most ideal to those who prefer timely Android updates more than anything else.

And we can’t forget pricing too, seeing that’s always a constant driving force in making any smartphone purchase decision. The Sense 5 packing HTC One is available by most carriers and retailers for $200 on-contract or less. Obviously, you’ll be saving a considerable amount of money in the short term, but you’ll be locked into a contract for 2 years. If that’s not your forte, then the Google Play Edition will be your cup of tea instead – albeit, you’ll have to fork over $600 to earn it outright.
