Comparison Test: Samsung Galaxy S5 vs. HTC One M8

Who speaks of Android smartphones, think first of Samsung. Logical: Samsung vigorously stir the drum, is the clear market leader and its top models rank near the top in the COMPUTER screen leaderboard. But the competition never sleeps, with the new one (M8) HTC blows to the attack: with aluminium housing and ease of use is finally a victory here. Whistling for the COMPUTER screen Smartphone duel!

Tempo counter-attack

The counterparty equip their Nobel phones with the currently fastest processor for mobile phones, the Snapdragon 801. But rather than access to the fullest, team HTC, one missed a quad-core processor only 2.27 gigahertz (GHz). Samsung, however, uses a Vierkerner with 2.46 GHz clock rate. Both smartphones are really fast, but Samsung has the necessary reserves in the final sprint and pulls at the test of speed with the touch of 1.18 on the HTC (Note: 1.29) past. By the way: The new HTC one is not only slower than the Galaxy S4 (Note: 1.28), also the first one, HTC was faster than his successor with 1.19. In the COMPUTER screen test laboratory decide not only software benchmarks, but rather a mix of everyday tasks, such as the loading time of a Web page or opening a huge image. In such tests, the interplay between hardware and software determines the cheat attempts of the manufacturers in the empty run the winner and not the processor clock rate as.

Samsung Galaxy S5 vs. HTC one M8

updates for a long life

At shorter and shorter intervals, the manufacturers bring new models on the market. Here, many neglect their old devices and deliver more no updates. Who wants to buy a new smartphone so not permanently, stays with a manufacturer, which has also its particularily models and nourishes like Samsung: even the two-year-old Galaxy S3 is up to date and will soon receive the latest Android. HTC, however, brings out update for his two-year-old top model HTC one X +. Now HTC promises improvement and want to operate increasingly model care. Make sure you go with the Samsung Galaxy S5.

Good combined? Fitness – or multi media package?

If you buy a mid-range Smartphone today, already a solid tool for Internet or Office and enjoys to gamble good challenging games quite liquid. Upper class models have to offer more. Samsung grabs loads of additional sensors in the S5: fingerprint, air pressure, pulse, and a pedometer all packaged in a waterproof housing, protected from sweat and rain. The one M8 offers less additional features Pedometer with tire. But it is almost a half a centimeter higher than the Galaxy S5, because HTC puts much emphasis on the sound. The large stereo speakers on the front just need space and sound for a Smartphone considerably according to and to the observer and, rather than back away. Here everyone must focus: who wants fitness and outdoor tools, access to Samsung. The multimedia package is greater at HTC.

One: to loud headphones

Update: the bad headphones note revealed differently than initially reported not by bad sound, but by too high volume. Measurement via the supplied headphones, there was nothing to complain about, but at the volume on the frequency response. Rich sound from the built-in speakers is all well and good, but the one that goes a step too far: the measurement with the original headphones yielded a maximum sound pressure 111 DB so that the maximum volume well above the DIN is E 50332-1 100 dB set as the standard for portable audio devices. Hearing thus threaten volume rotated at full.

Simplicity instead of functional diversity

HTC and Samsung give Android a new design to make the flood of information manageable. HTC reduces the variety of colours and relies on a very simple design with clear symbols. The home page brings together news from subscribed Web sites, dates, Twitter and Facebook messages and much more. Options unfortunately missing in favor of clarity, to change the factory settings. With somewhat less success, Samsung strives for more overview: the setting menu shows tons of colorful symbols instead of a list and scares so already at the first contact off for each setting can be found using the search function. Also the camera menu overwhelmed with too many options, which are arranged in a grid. Enter dates in the calendar, but in the S Planner. Anyone looking for an easy entry into the world of Android, chooses better the HTC. Those who work in the Galaxy S5, is rewarded with liquid and extensive operation.

Starring qualities

Essential more pay attention to the manufacturer of the screen quality. The displays of both devices offer highest level, thanks to full HD resolution, individual pixels even with Hinsehen are not visible. What loses the Samsung with its slightly lower brightness, makes up for it with its strong contrast. However, HTC has the edge in this category front: because its screen is anti-reflective, it can be better reflected in very bright environment.
