Apple and HTC have launched their flagship mobiles viz., iPhone 6 and One M8 with excellent features to beat other rivals in the battle for smartphone. Both the device has its unique features that made themselves unique and best.
By comparing from pillar to post, here I have compared the specification and features of two devices.
Apple iPhone 6 comes with a dimension of 5.44” x 2.64” x 0.27” inches and it weighs approximately 129gm. It is slightly bigger than iPhone 5s and is quite a handful. The HTC One M8 has a dimension of 5.76” x 2.78” x 0.37” and weighs 160 GM, which makes it bigger than iPhone 6 in all dimensions and may give some problems to users with a small hand. Both the phones might easily fit into the pockets of the users, but HTC One M8 might feel a little bulky.
On testing iPhone 6, it appears to be bent, but did not cause damage to a heart breaking extent but left the bend mark for some time. The HTC One M8’s screen showed a bit gap in the middle of the screen on its side, this may rise trouble to users when dust enters their phones. Other than that, there was no major scar caused by normal bending in both the phones. iPhone 6 appears to be considerably thinner than the HTC One M8.
Apple iPhone 6 has a 4.7 inch screen and the HTC One M8 got a 5 inch screen. The Apple iPhone 6 powered with a resolution of 750 x 1334 pixels, whereas the HTC One M8 has 1080 x 1992 pixel resolution, which is more than iPhone 6’s and is quite good. The touch sensitivity on iPhone 6 screen is more responsive compared to HTC One M8’s touch.
iPhone 6 got a retina HD display, viewable from all angles and it has an oleophobic coating which resists the oily fingerprints and the screen is scratch resistant. In the meanwhile, HTC One M8’s screen can be viewable from all angles and it has a basic corning glass protection which resists damage to a few extant. Both the phones, the displays are colorful, supports multi language and multi characters display. The display of HTC One M8 is much better than iPhone 6 as well as 6 plus.
Apple iPhone 6 has an 8MP rear camera with OIS, which is an improvement from its predecessor and a 1.2 MP front camera. It has camera options such as panorama, HDR, face-timing, auto tune, true-tone flash, slow motion video, time lapse video, video recording and an additional option of taking still photos while recording videos. HTC One M8 powered with a 4MP dual primary camera and 5MP secondary camera supported by an LED flash. It has options such as panorama, HDR, face-timing, video recording and it comes with an option of focusing an out of focus picture with UFocus software.
Apple iPhone 6 has bundled with A8 processor and it seems to be good as well as works faster while compared to its predecessors. The HTC One M8 comes with a quad-core Snapdragon 801 CPU and Adreno 330 GPU (which is a little bit slow when compared to the present processors in the snapdragon series).
The 1GB RAM on iPhone 6 makes it quite faster with A8 Processor, while the HTC One M8 has a 2GB RAM. Apple iPhone 6 comes with 16GB, 64GB and 128GB internal storages with $100 more for each difference in the memory. The HTC One M8 comes with 16GB and 32GB internal storage and an SD card slot which can be used to expand the memory.
Both of the devices come with most available options that are available on all smartphones. And both the phones use a Qualcomm MDM9625 modem that provides wide support for most 3G and 4G bands, and up to LTE Cat 4.
The iOS 8 have been applauded for the features it has, which were not seen in its predecessor iOS7. But, the updated iOS 8.0.2 seems to have trouble while connecting to Wi-Fi or to any cellular network for a long period of time. But, the iOS 8.1 allows the device to connect with new iMac 5K retina display one with new features and solves the Wi-Fi dropping problems. The HTC One M8’s seems to have no problem with android v4.4 and recent rumors say that it can be upgraded to Android LollyPop.
Apple says that iPhone 6 will have better battery time than iPhone 5s with Non-removable Li-Po 1810 mAh battery, the HTC One M8 has a good battery time of 20hrs on 3G and 14hrs on 2G with 2600mAh battery. The HTC One M8 has a Boom sound feature, which gives a great volume when on speakers.
HTC One M8 comes with a price tag of $650 at Amazon (at the time of writing) and the prices of iPhone 6 are,
- iPhone 6 (16GB): $199 with contract (Verizon, AT&T, Sprint)
- iPhone 6 (64GB): $299
- iPhone 6 (128GB): $399
- Contract free (T-Mobile): $649, $749 and $849 for 16GB, 32GB and 64GB, respectively.
iPhone 6 would be the best-in class with excellent features and will be a perfect choice for those who need design, look and luxury. HTC One M8 would beat iPhone 6 in many areas and remains a perfect competitor for the Apple iPhone 6.
