Can the Samsung Galaxy S5 Beat the HTC One M8?

Technological sphere can’t help but compare these two smart pieces. Could the Samsung Galaxy S5 beat the HTC One M8, or is it the other way around? Which between these phones do you think is smarter than the other? There’s no other way to find out than to get hold of the two and differentiate the spots from stripes! If you are keen enough to notice, the blogosphere mostly boasts about the bits of HTC One M8 against that of Samsung Galaxy S5. But now, let’s see what the Samsung Galaxy S5 can flaunt in all its glory to show us that it, too, deserves the limelight.

#1: The Sturdier Build
The first thing to look at before you unravel all the bits underneath these high-end gizmos is their build. Of course, the brushed metal finish, premium aluminum design of the HTC One M8 makes it indeed an eye-candy that goes along with its natural curves for a comfortable fit on your hands. But as you see, the Samsung Galaxy S5 can also do better. The Samsung Galaxy S5 beats that of HTC One M8’s build as the former is IP67 certified, which means it’s not just dustproof, but it’s also waterproof. IP67 is the degree of protection provided against the intrusion, dust, accidental contact, and water. Would you rather be more on the aesthetics and compromise your phone’s durability?

#2: The Better Camera
If you’re a kind of person who is a sucker for snagging out photos and the most talked about “selfie,” then I bet you’d be putting your money on the Samsung Galaxy S5 than that of the HTC One M8. The S5’s camera is superfast that it can incredibly snap a photo in just 0.3s. Also, it boasts a 16MP camera to play around with accurate colours and good contrast. How is the 4MP sensor of HTC One M8 any match with that of Samsung Galaxy S5 then? Of course HTC One M8’s camera has a second sensor and lens, and a second flash to capture depth information that is actually great, but we can all agree that Samsung Galaxy S5’s camera works better by all accounts.

#3: The Security
Now, the Samsung Galaxy S5 has an inclusion of fingerprint scanner, which evidently is one of what the HTC One M8 has been lacking. If you are storing crucial information on your gadget, then it pays to be more vigilant on where you store them. In this way, only an authorized person can have access with your private files, and you’ll have the privacy which everyone rightfully deserves.

#4: The More Convenient
If you have a tiptop phone with all those staggering features and specs, but don’t know how to operate it, then every bit of it will be downright useless. At the end of the day, the convenience with these neat devices is what we are all after. Now, the Samsung Galaxy S5 has the right to boast with its childproof features, removable battery, and with the new Ultra Power Saving Mode. In a nutshell, the Samsung Galaxy S5 is much more user-friendly than that of HTC One M8.

So, which phone do you think has the right to boast? Let us hear your thoughts below.

The Rumors about the iPhone 6 in Its Stage of Contemplation

Every press release triggers a commotion across the globe bringing out excitement and a bit of anxiety, but nothing is more heart-stopping than the announcement of the Cupertino-based tech company Apple of its iPhone lineup. It’s a fact that the iPhone is the most successful smartphone model to date. The company as a whole may not top the charts in the number of sales, but its products among others have by far the highest smartphone penetration rate due to their uniqueness and exclusivity. And so, now that speculations have been circulating in regard to the details surrounding the makings of the iPhone 6, it takes a leap of faith to find out what to believe in. This is what we know about it.

 It is said that Apple will be releasing two variants of iPhone 6, same as what it did with the successor of the iPhone 5. One is going to sport a 4.7-inch display while the other is expected to be bigger with its 5.5-inch screen. This upgrade is simply a must because Apple needs to adapt to the phablet domination to secure its place in the competition. As for its release date, September 2014 would be the most plausible time, considering the release of both the iPhone 5s and 5c that was scheduled on the Fall of 2013.

Both variants will be installed with a sapphire crystal screen, similar to the material used by Vertu smartphones, which is virtually resistant to scratches. On the other hand, there are sources indicating that Apple will be stepping into the flexible display territory, like with the LG G Flex and Samsung Galaxy Round. On another note, either both models or just the more expensive variant will be powered by a faster and more efficient A8 chip, which packs in more power than its already powerful predecessor.

In terms of design, the iPhone 6 is said to adopt a thinner chassis and a bezel-free display with an edge-to-edge design. With the much more slender LED backlight from 0.6mm to 0.4mm, the internal components can be spread out, allowing a slicker design to take place. It is most likely that Apple will be continuing the Touch ID feature for its future smartphones, considering the huge sum of money it invested on the said technology. To be on par with the features of the upcoming flagship phone of Samsung, Apple is said to focus on health-related applications like the Healthbook app, which will track various data points including blood pressure, hydration, heart rate, and other stats like glucose levels. This will perhaps be available on the rumored iOS 8 release.

It really is no surprise that rumors about the next generation flagship phone of Apple has surfaced just a few months after the iPhone 5s and 5c were made available on the market. The popularity of the iPhone has reached epic proportions, and this has served a motivating factor for Apple to deliver to the expectations of its clientele. Soon enough, we can be able to tell apart facts from fiction when more credible information are revealed as the release date of the most awaited smartphone arrives.
