just bought samsung galaxy s5 it is the most stunning phone and amazing to use. n my friend just bought htc m8 it has already started to hang ....go for GALAXY S5 THE BEST SMARTPHONE EVER
"Even detractors of plastic have to admit its look and feel have vastly improved over the Galaxy S4." HHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHahahahah..... This is the funniest thing I've read today! The S5 is so much uglier than the S4!! Bigger bezels, ugly looking back... you name it! This is the only Galaxy S phone that I will not purchase and I had all of them since the Galaxy S i9000...
elie, 11 Jun 2014Htc m8 is better than the galaxy s5 excepet the camera
M8 faster and better in all specs Your opinion and fact are not the same thing.
The S5 has better screen, camera, overall durability, ergonomics, practicality, battery life, water protection, features/options/functions, so forth.
If you like the m8 better than it is better for "you". It does not change the logical advantages the S5 has.
The only things that the Htc One have are faster experience with sens, boomsound and metal desing! But I also think that plastic is made for smartphones, plastic makes the phones lighter and slimmer and with the s5 you can also take off the battery cover and change the battery! I don't regret the fact that I bought a Galaxy S5! It's simply stunning and I also rooted it and installed the stock android. It's just fast and amazing! Go Samsung!
Bhasan, 06 Jun 2014Can anyone ensure that the new htc one m8 has no pink tint on camera after some month use like... moreAlso my htc one m7 have a pink/violet tint now! I can't get it off!! Go samsung.!

Htc m8 is better than the galaxy s5 excepet the camera

I've had a HTC one for a long time and I've been interested in how they were going to upgrade this phone. I'm not completely impressed. Yeah, the metal feel is cool, but so what. The first time I dropped the phone the screen cracked from the upper left corner to the bottom right corner. I had insurance but I was told it would cost $150 to repair the phone because it's impossible to open these devices. Then, the price of insurance went up on the phones anyway. At that point I decided to cancel insurance on all my phones. I now save $60 per month and could buy a brand-new phone every year if I wanted to. But I digress.
The one thing that has always stood out on this HTC is the sound. The speakers are amazing. It's just not enough. HTC should have done more . With all of their blah blah blah regarding quality vs size, they should have bumped it up to eight megapixels at least.
And who decided the phone would be fine without the ability to load your own SD card? Slap that person with a fish! when I bought the HTC I had to immediately decide what I wanted to have and not have on my new phone . Not only was that an arduous process, but ever since then, I have been constantly battling for space!
I had (have) the S3 as well , and I really liked that phone. I just didn't like the screen that much. The contrast wasn't there and the daylight viewing wasn't the best.
In conclusion, it looks like Samsung did some serious work to make a great phone even better. HTC didn't do enough to make a difference to me , and I should add, it's still every repair man's worst nightmare! Even with insurance, they're still going to charge you at least $100 - $150 to work on the darn thing.
Can anyone ensure that the new htc one m8 has no pink tint on camera after some month use like htc one m7 had?
www, 04 Jun 2014Plastic is also much stronger against abrasion than anodized aluminum. I think plastics are th... moreExactly. But people....mostly just bias online people anyway...do not get this.
What Samsung keeps doing is making the most overall durable, practical, and ergonomic device.
The material holds up, is removable, survives better, is easier and more comfortable to hold/use, reduces heat, is less costly to replace, and so forth.
And everyone's complaint...Is "it's not pretty enough so it sucks"...Or "it's cheap"...so is aluminum lol. It makes soda cans....OOOO so expensive.

[deleted post]This comment from you is just a bias crap one.
Do you even have the common sense to realize that build quality is a completely different thing from the design you prefer to look at???????
The build quality of the S5 is very sturdy and possibly better due to Poly Carbonate being overall more durable and practical.
And You do realize that more goes into a design than just looks right?
The S5 is overall more durable, ergonomic, and practical.
It's smaller thinner body is easier to hold. It's soft touch back is the most comfortable I have ever felt on a phone. It is still removable with a larger battery that lasts longer in a thinner more ergonomic device.
And on top of all that it still has IP67 water and dust protection.....
Can you use your brain? Or are you clouded by fanboy bias?
