HTC One M8 specs versus Samsung Galaxy S5, iPhone 5S

The new HTC One rustles up an impressive list of hardware features and a slick new software shell. So far, the ‘M8’ stands strong against its influential rivals.

There’s no question that the visually-refined HTC One M8 is one fancy piece of hand candy. Luckily, its prowess isn’t just chassis-deep. The 5-inch screen is bright and sharp, the 4-‘ultrapixel’ camera produces pleasing photos, and the phone’s quad-core processing power is one of the fastest there is.

On paper at least, the HTC One M8 more than stands up to its fiercest competitors, the Samsung Galaxy S5 and iPhone 5S. Pay close attention to the M8’s expandable storage option; HTC’s inclusion of this slot knocks out one Samsung’s major benefits over the original HTC One.

Although we spent a lot of time with the GS5 at its launch in Spain several weeks back, we still won’t know which of these two Android phones comes out on top, and how they both also compare to the iPhone 5S, until we can review the Galaxy S5.

Until then, here’s how the three superphones’ specs compare, side by side.
