HTC One M8 vs Samsung Galaxy A5Â Verdict
Design and Display:
The HTC One (M8) features a 5-inch display with a 1920 x 1080-pixel resolution with a pixel density of 440 ppi. While the other hand rival, The Samsung Galaxy S5 features a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED 1920 x 1080-pixel resolution with the pixel density of 293 ppi. That means the Samsung Galaxy S5 has slightly larger display but a lower pixel density.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 gives you slightly more screen space, not only because it’s fractionally larger, but because the HTC One has on-screen controls. Screen fiends might side with Samsung on this one.
The HTC One (M8) features a 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset and has 2GB of RAM. While Â the Samsung Galaxy S5 features a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 401 processor as well as 2GB of RAM. Which means that the samsung phone has a slower processor than the HTC one M8. But the RAM options are same in both the devices as well as the working is also same which leads to a slight over lag in samsung than HTC.
The HTC One (M8) features 16 GB of on-board ROM, a microSD card slot capable of up to 128GB, and 65GB of free Google Drive space. While the Samsung Galaxy S5 features 16GB and 32GB on-board storage variants, with microSD support for cards up to 128GB, and 50GB of free cloud storage through Dropdox for 2 years.
The big difference here is that HTC has stepped up its game in offering microSD support on this level of device. This has long been an advantage offered by Samsung, but the playing field has been levelled.
The HTC One (M8) features the same UltraPixel sensor (f/2.0 aperture) found in the original HTC One, although it’s a better all-round performer than before. It also has a Duo Camera for depth perception which means thatÂ there’s a range of fancy features on offer, and 5-megapixel (f/2.0 aperture) front-facing camera which is excellent for selfies. But the front camera Â is not an HD version.
On the second half, the Samsung Galaxy S5 features a 16-megapixel sensor with fast 0.3 second capture speed. The samsung camera is ever known for the best photography so the samsung takes the lead in terms of camera. The samsung smartphone can also capture Ultra HD video, something the HTC One is incapable of and there are a range of smart functions, including “selective focus” which produces similar to HTC’s Ufocus without the additional lens. This new added features lets you choose over samsung.
The HTC One (M8) features Android 4.4 KitKat and Sense 6.0. The Samsung Galaxy S5 features Android 4.4 KitKat and a new version of TouchWiz.
The HTC One (M8) features a 2600mAh battery that is supposedly 40 per cent more efficient than the first HTC One, which could last up to two days with even 3G services. However, HTC has added aggressive power saver options to make sure your device lasts the distance and it’s very impressive.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 features a 2300mAh battery that will get you through the day. It also offers power saving features to match those of HTC. Both devices are a step above the previous generation, giving much better endurance.
Conclusion whether which one is the best:
The HTC One (M8) features a machined aluminium body that wraps around the sides making for a 90 per cent metal finish. There will be three colours available: gunmetal grey, arctic silver and amber gold. It’s a triumph of design, it looks stunning and feels sensational to hold.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 is mainly plastic, sticking to familiar design, but with a more tactile back for better grip. The big positives are that it is dustproof and resistant in liquid down to a metre in depth, and it’ll be available in a range of colours (shimmery white, charcoal black, copper gold and electric blue).
The HTC One (M8) feels like the slicker device in daily use. The user interface is faster and although it has less options and features, the interface feels more sophisticted and mature. It offers class-leading sound quality, a great display, but the real winner is the design. In the battle of these two giants, HTC takes it, but only just.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 offers a wider range of features and comes with great connectivity, a stunning display, plenty of power and a camera that performs well. However it feels like it could be faster in daily use and the unique features of the heart rate sensor and fingerprint scanner may well get turned off and ignored.
As per price, the HTC One M8Â is available at rs 34,920Â and Â the samsung galaxy A5 is available in India at a price tag of 24,000 INR. The colour variants are same for the devices.
