HTC One (M8) vs LG G2

0. phoneArena posted on 03 Apr 2014, 06:34

We’re pitting the newly outed HTC One (M8) against the formidable LG G2. We know that there’s a significant difference between the two, as one is the regarded as a last-generation model – while the other is a part of the current crop. Naturally, there are going to be some advantages with the newer HTC One M8 (think hardware), but that doesn’t mean that the LG G2 can’t stand its ground and give it a good run for its money...

I loved the G2 when I had it but the build quality was lacking.. it creeked when you put any sort of pressure on it.

It squeeked like crazy and I didn't have a case on it so it was super annoying.. other than that it was a great phone.

Really? I haven't heard about this, it's surely terrible. But, still better design than Samsung!

With that being said I'm a LG fan regardless.

Conclusion: HTC One 2104 competes with G2 directly.

Imagine when the G3 arrives.......

Overall two very nice phones, each with its pros and cons but overall I don't think you can go wrong with either.

Although I'm a proud new owner of the M8, I admire how LG was able to create such a large screen in such a compact package.

I own the G2 and still wanting the M8!
But honestly I can't find enough reasons to do so!
All there is, is sound and maybe feel in hand!
All the remaining, screen size, overall size, screen/size ratio, battery, software features, camera quality, etc...
However, still torn out, I still miss Sense and would really like to go back! But paying additional 300$ (selling g2 used and buying a new M8) is not an option at this time!

I like and have had both but prefer the m8..
I do hate the power button on the m8 though.. it's flush and doesn't do well until pushed hard..

I'm all unstable about these two as a longterm user of a phone. The privious one was Samsung GS2, but in a sudden that decided to get retired. Now, in front of me stands a big decision (for me, of course). After a longlasting search and reading a ton of reviews, finally I'll grap one of these guys. I'm impressed by the camera and the interface features of the G2, but by the call clarity, BoomsSound and the ability to display lyrics of the M8.

I've not personally tired none of two...

Which of the features above gets ahead of the rest? Is the call clarity of G2 much worse than M8? or the camera quality of M8 than G2?
