With the One M9, HTC listened to the public and moved its UltraPixel camera to the front of the phone and upgraded the main camera to a 20-megapixel sensor. They even tweaked the design of the phone to put the power button on the side. But the overall design is iterative, mixing elements of the One M7 and One M8 into the unibody aluminum shall around back while keeping the same design aesthetic of the One M8 on the front.
Surprisingly, Samsung’s new Galaxy S6 looks striking. Rather than giving us another variant of the same design that the company’s been using for four years, Samsung’s designers built a phone with an aluminum band around the edges and glass panels on the front and back. And then there’s the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge with a display which curves over the left and right edges of the phone. While the added glass loves to pick up fingerprints, and the bottom edge of the phone barrows a few ideas from the Apple iPhone 6, the overall look and feel of the phone may be exactly what Samsung needs to break of out of the design rut the company has been stuck in for nearly half a decade.
Both phones have their merits, but we want to know your thoughts and why you’d pick on phone over the other.
