First system update of 77 mb is available in India. its system enhancement features.
To those nagging about the on screen buttons, it was pushed by Google as android is heading in that direction. So Sense is now closer to stock android. Hence, easier for HTC to apply Sense to future android updates thus, faster updates.
No need to redo the whole UI with ugly and laggy interface like Samsung. Don't get me wrong, Samsung makes great phones but horrible with UI and UI optimization. Whenever I buy a Samsung, I make it a priority to install custom roms.
And to those asking "So the keys are now on screen, Why the big bezel where the HTC logo is at?". HTC has mentioned they need that space to fit internal components.
The M8 is by no means perfect, but these haters are making it look worse than how it really is.
At the end of the day though, it's all up to personal preference. No need to bash unreasonably
when it comes to camera features Samsung Galaxy S5 has put a wider array of features on its new flagship, covering most
of what the HTC One (M8) can do.
Zoe is nice but can't carry the M8 alone and despite
having a whole second camera to help it the shallow
depth of focus feature is not clearly better than
Samsung's. It will work better for moving objects, but
other than that the Galaxy S5 results looked cleaner hence I go with s5
when it comes to audio quality HTC One (M8). With quality audio hardware,the HTC flagship manages excellent headphone
output too. The clarity might be only a tad better on
the One (M8), but combined with the far louder
output it's enough to make it the definitive winner
here. I go with htc in this case
when it comes to loudspeakers HTC One (M8) puts great emphasis on the speakers and it comes as no surprise they
The Galaxy S5 isn't that much louder than the HTC
and, due to speaker placement, its loudspeaker isn't
better at notifying you for incoming calls and
messages.so I go with the one m8 in this case
why always fail in designing their phones? most of their phones fail to garner enthusiasm in buyer's perspective simply because there is no expansion sdcard slot or removable battery or both.
the battery will be the first to be damaged due to frequent charging & discharging, users can't replace them conveniently by themselves. once this model is obsolete in another year, replacing the battery at htc is like purchasing a new phone.
sdcard expansion is most important since the camera is so high res and photos taken take up a lot of space leaving not much space for mp3 songs or movies.
htc phones is of high quality, my first smart phone is a htc sensation xl which is still running fine but i need more storage for photos & videos, so i jumped to a galaxy s3. listen to buyer's expectations and you will be number one.
when it comes to app package The HTC One (M8) has
certain hardware advantages, which help it in the
media player department, but Samsung's app package
is richer out of the box. The S Health app is amazing
The HTC One (M8) has an FM radio for those who still
haven't made the switch to Internet streaming. You
might be switching its music and video players
because they lack some needed features and the
Fitbit app is non-exclusive, which hurt HTC's case
here. I steal prefer s5 in this case of app package
when it comes to performance the Samsung Galaxy S5 is Having a bit more CPU oomph, which in turned boosted web performance,
give this victory to the S5.
It's a narrow victory as the One (M8) held its own in
3D gaming and is still one of the fastest phones so the s5 is better when it comes to performance
Jonathan , 08 May 2014For battery Samsung Galaxy S5. This was very close indeed, the Galaxy S5 never really outlaste... moreBoth M8 & S5 have the Ultra Power Saving Mode. Without activating the power saving mode, the S5 can use around 40 min - 1 hour more than the M8. It's not really a big difference.
I don't really concern about the wireless charging feature and it's not important to me. You can buy a Portable Phone Charger around $20 from Ebay.
When it comes to the interface Samsung Galaxy S5 has The extra security and
privacy offered by the fingerprint scanner are great
and we like having Multi Window even if it won't see
too much use for many of the users.
Sense 6 on HTC One (M8) is beautiful and matches
most of the TouchWiz features, but still has some
catching up to do. Samsung galaxy s5 takes it for interface
For battery Samsung Galaxy S5. This was very close indeed, the Galaxy S5 never really outlasted he HTC One (M8) by more than an hour. That's still more than nothing and the replaceable battery will be helpful for those who don't mind carryinga spare. In some regions the Galaxy S5 has wireless charging, in others a wireless charging back cover is an optional accessory.To be fair, most people don't have a spare battery and very few use wireless charging. The battery life of the HTC One (M8) by itself is very good – almost as good as that of the Galaxy S5. For the battery the s5 takes it
Samsung Galaxy S5. Better sunlight legibility is the biggest contributor for the win, but details like more surface area, perfect contrast and colors, the sensitivity start to pile up quick.The HTC One (M8) certainly has a great display, let down in this head to head comparison mostly by its relatively higher reflectivity. s5 takes it when it comes to display
you guys no offence HTC one m8 is lame simply because of it's on screen buttons
