    Comparison between Samsung Galaxy S5 Vs HTC One (M8)


    Display


    Regarding the display, both the devices perform equally well. The HTC One (M8) has a 5-inch display with a display resolution of about 1920 x 1080. It has a high pixel density of about 441 pixels per inch.
    The Samsung Galaxy S5 on the other hand features a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display with the resolution of about 1920 x 1080. However, it has a pixel density of 430 ppi which is slightly less than HTC's One M8. But do note that Samsung's Super AMOLED display is more successful in offering you more vibrant colors and deeper blacks than the HTC M8. Moreover, Samsung Galaxy S5 gives you slightly more screen space than HTC M8 which is fitted with on-screen controls.

    Processor & RAM


    Both the devices are powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor. However, the HTC One (M8) is clocked at 2.3GHz while the S5 is clocked at 2.5GHz. So, theoretically S5 is more faster than HTC One M8. Both the devices are packed with 2GB of RAM.

    Storage & Camera


    The HTC One (M8) is packed with the 16GB on-board storage with a microSD card slot which can have maximum capacity of up to 128GB, and it also comes with the 50GB of free additional Google Drive space. It is also embedded with the Duo Camera for depth perception and 5-megapixel front-facing camera which is crystal clear for selfies.

    The Samsung Galaxy S5 on the other hand features 16GB and 32GB on-board storage depending upon its variants.It is also packed with the microSD support for cards up to 128GB. Like the HTC One M8, it provides 50GB of free cloud storage through Dropbox for 2 years.
    The Samsung Galaxy S5 is embedded with a 16-megapixel camera with incredible 0.3 second capture speed. The smartphone can also capture Ultra HD video whereas the HTC One M8 is incapable of doing so. Besides, Samsung provides a range of smart functions and sensors which outshines it from its biggest rival HTC One M8.

    So, according to my verdict, Samsung Galaxy S5 is slightly better than HTC One M8.
