Spec showdown: HTC One (M8) versus the competition

htc one sparks generic

The all new HTC One has landed! We’re working on getting some quality hands-on time with the device at HTC’s launch event in New York City, but we thought you’d enjoy seeing how HTC’s flagship phone stacks up against the competition when it comes to pure specs. On paper, the new HTC One (M8) is fairly comparable to the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the Sony Xperia Z2. Sony, Samsung, and HTC have their minor differentiating hardware factors and magic sauce that they’ve baked into the software, but the biggest differences are most noticeable when you compare the external design of the phones.

If you’re looking to buy the best spec’d phone, you should probably consider the Sony Xperia Z2, but features like BoomSound, Duo Camera, a fingerprint scanner or even a heart rate monitor make Samsung and HTC’s flagship phones appealing options since they offer something unique to the smartphone experience.

Did HTC get specs right with the all new HTC One?
