HTC One M8 for Windows vs. Nokia Lumia Icon Comparison


Design and Display:

HTC and Nokia seem to differ in their view of what an appropriate display size means for their respective flagship devices – at 5 inches, the One M8 offers a great deal less screen real estate when compared with the 5.9-incher of the  Nokia Lumia Icon. That’s not all, however, as the  Nokia Lumia Icon AMOLED panel is also more pixel-dense and offers a resolution of 1440 x 2560 (493 ppi) – a considerable lead on the One M8’s 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution S-LCD3 display (441 ppi). Thankfully for HTC, this advantage of nokia’s handset doesn’t really mean much in reality, as the human eye has a pretty impossible task spotting any differences in image sharpness.

The HTC M8 windows features 32 GB of on-board ROM. And the phone is  supported with a external SD card Slot with 64GB of expendability. While the lumia features with the same 32 GB on-board storage but is not externally supportable memory. So both the devices have same RAM and ROM options. That makes them neutral in their comparison


The HTC M8 features the UltraPixel sensor (f/2.2 aperture) found in the original desire phones, although it’s a better all-round performer than before. the front facing camera is 5 megapixel which is more than its rear camera but  in lower quality thean its rear camera. Both the  front and rear are not the HD  version.

On the second half, the lumia icon features a 20-megapixel sensor with fsastest 0.4seconds capture speed. This smartphone has a front snapper of 2 megapixel. So in terms of camera nokia lumia icon takes a lead over the HTC.

Operating System:

Both the devices operate on same operating system which is Windows 8.1 and are upgradable to 8.2 version. But lumia has more upgradation options so here nokia takes lead over the HTC. Which lets you to choose over the  lumia version handset.


HTC one M8 has a battery backup of 2600 mAh with 22 hours of talktime in 3G services and 22.7 days of stand by time. While its rival has just 2420 mAh battery with all the lesser hours of talktime and stand by time. So HTC again has a lead over nokia device.
