This year, Samsung and HTC launched two flagship phones Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One (M8), if you have a Smartphone in a distress with which one, Galaxy S5 and M8 is a good choice. Following is the Gizmag Web site for real-time evaluation of contrast these two phones made in order for your reference.
Difference between iPhone and Galaxy S5 5s size larger, but belong to the big screen. GS5, HTC One M8 3% longer length, width of narrow 3%. But at first glance, both phones there is no difference. Incipio iPhone 6 Case
Materials, aluminum shell design of HTC One M8 has a wonderful texture, (pictured) glamour metallic color, with one obvious aggression. Smooth polished metal look unique and visible design of HTC and foot work.
Galaxy S5 designs can only be described as “taste”. Made from artificial leather material on the back of the fuselage looked “band-aid” feeling. Although somewhat metallic surface of the fuselage, but the plastic material. If you like extremely fine workmanship, high end design, then you can stop here, Galaxy S5 is not this material. In addition, HTC is following the iPhone One M8 5s, designed to work with the highest quality Smartphone. But then again, design Galaxy S5 is not nothing. Plastic facts cannot be changed. Samsung’s original intention was to be a long look of high-end, atmospheric design. Distance, but in the past I can’t compliment.
But Galaxy S5 leather case also has advantages. First, GS5 9% lighter weight than One M8, but more important is, GS5 excellent grip. Big-screen machine had seemed unwieldy, GS5 in the selection just made up for this flaw, One aluminum metal appears to be the fuselage of the M8 was more heavy and hard.
In addition, One M8 on the sense there is an obvious feature: a microphone stand in a long line at the bottom, as the grille, was not seen before in other phones, can be given a “best cell phone microphone” award for the M8. The speaker sound and the microphone is great, absolutely none. Is amazing, full sound loud and clear. If you’ve used One M7, experienced the high quality sound of M7, you will find the sound M8 has reached a new level.
Almost the same size of the fuselage, One M8 5 inches screen, screen Galaxy S5 is 5.1 inches. One M8 features a virtual touch-screen navigation keys, while the GS5 follows the navigation buttons at the bottom. This means GS5 provide 100% on the screen for the user to use, after all, One screen bottom screen there is a small part of the M8 was “virtual home” key, “back” and “recently used APP” button occupies.
But is not the same in the Android immersion. Navigation keys will fade out from the Gallery, video or any other app (just screen will be able to point out a virtual navigation keys), is vital to screen One M8. But not the immersion of the Android app will let the actual screen area is smaller than the screen size. Both phones have screens with 1080p resolution, color clear clear. But I’m not going to judge a mobile phone display quality is good or bad, because they are very good quality.
GS5 ACE characteristic is its level IP67 waterproof function. In case of battery and charging sealed intact, 30 minutes inhaling 3.3 feet of water without any problem. If you want to try it in the bath or in a shallow pool to answer the phone, GS5 absolutely can meet you. Users who are easy to put your cellphone in the toilet or sink, GS5 IP67 waterproof properties you do not need to worry anymore. HTC One M8 are not waterproof.
GS5 or heart-rate monitor, placed in the back of the fuselage, just below the rear-facing camera, and Samsung’s s-class health APP is bound, as shown above. GS5 is the first cell phone with a special pulse induction detector.
GS5 fingerprint scanner features, like the iPhone 5s, GS5 Home key with biometric features. Stroke gently with a finger, you can unlock the screen. Fingerprint sensor is very sensitive and accurate. But Apple identification function, GS5 screen unlock than parked in the home key to unlock the fingers to slowly and is less convenient. Incipio iPhone 6 back Case
GS5 fingerprint sensor the biggest bright spot is that it binds a third party application. Login through fingerprint identification information, such as PayPal or authorize transactions. We will see more of in the future a third party application fingerprint sensor with the GS5 functional cooperation.
HTC tablet phone released in 2013: One Max, its back with a fingerprint scanner, HTC is also One on the M8 follows the later Bio-sensing apparatus functions.
That manipulation and too cumbersome? This is already the past tense, and HTC One M8 Motion Launch induction start feature brings new experiences. Call the phone near the ear, can node, fingertips to open applications, tap the screen twice to call cell phones. Perhaps the most useful function is in the camera head, in landscape mode just press the volume key will start the camera. Instead, GS5 slow camera startup speed.
GS5 of higher resolution, but One M8 camera but have much in common, the most obvious is the effect of light treatment. One M8 under dual LED Flash, handling image brighter in the dark light, light, harmony, colors more vivid, uniform pixel, balance.
One M8 there is a camera in the back of the fuselage, one of the Ufocus functions only on the small screen of a mobile phone display filter and focus again, shared in the Web interface again. Other than the depth of focus, changing backgrounds, textures, and other functions are also provided.
Features on the tall are good choice for photographers. But deeply should the Galaxy on the S5 did not view hardware, only through software operations to create Bokeh image, but very limited, because only 45.7 cm wide shot of the scene.
The two handsets, battery life is very long. 75% screen brightness down to play video, GS5 lasted 9 hours and 27 minutes, One M8 lasted 9 hours and 20 minutes. With excellent battery performance, this need not worry. Samsung launched in February this year the Ultra Power Saving Mode feature of mobile phones into the model was extended by 24 hours by battery disposable battery, very powerful.
One M8 also had similar battery function. In March of this year, HTC’s Extreme super power saving mode Power Saving Mode function. When the charge falls below a certain value, the function will start automatically.
This phone is different, not simply said what a good, which is not good. But if I were to choose, I would choose the One M8, unable to refuse such work fine, well-designed products, and M8 elegant Sense software more attractive than GS5 TouchWiz interface.
But I also have reason to select the GS5, comfortable grip, lightweight airframe, convenient and secure fingerprinting, high resolution camera, IP67 waterproof rating. And many more in the Samsung TouchWiz interface for business users.
