Samsung Galaxy S4 vs. HTC One

The iPhone 5, Blackberry Z10 and the Nokia Lumia 920 already got inundated by the colossal specs of Samsung Galaxy S4. However, the Samsung Galaxy S4 still has a really tough competition from its fellow Android devices and one of them is the latest HTC flagship dubbed as the HTC One. All the worth comparing aspects of both these smartphones, which include the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC one, have been discussed hereunder and have been jolted down together as a head to head comparison.


Outlooks, Display and Dimensions

The first field at which we will be looking at are the outlooks, display and dimensions of these two subject smartphones – namely, Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC One. The Samsung Galaxy S4 is much like the Galaxy S3 and has a plastic built where as the HTC One has an erotic outlook made up with aluminium. But the thing is that the HTC One is smaller than the Galaxy S4 with 4.7 inch screen where as the Galaxy S4 is having 5 inch screen, the resolution of both the devices is HD i.e. 1920×1080 but its best to watch any live match online free from but the ppi is different, the HTC One is having 468 ppi and the Galaxy S4 is having 441 ppi, which again gives HTC One the upper hand.

So up till now, the HTC One is one step ahead of Galaxy S4, but to make it even, it is worth mentioning another factor which will be in favour of Galaxy S4, and that is the thickness, the Galaxy S4 is 7.9 mm thick where as the HTC one is 9.3 mm thick, therefore, the Galaxy S4 and the HTC One are again equivalent to each other under this field.

Processor and RAM

Now, let us take into account the processor of both these devices. Samsung Galaxy S4 boasts two processors which are dependent on its versions; one of the versions is having an octa core 1.6 GHz processor, where as the other one is having a quad-core 1.9 GHz processor. And when it comes to HTC One’s processor, it is slower than both of the aforementioned processors of Galaxy S4 as it is a quad-core 1.7 GHz processor. And now when we take into account the RAM, then it is the same for both the devices (2GB). So as a verdict to this field, the Samsung Galaxy S4 is the one which is having the upper hand, which together makes the Galaxy S4 to be on a 1-0 lead.


Comparing the cameras of two different smartphones is never easy; it can’t be judged simply on the basis of its pixel density because sometimes, the picture results are totally different. So as we don’t have the Galaxy S4 and HTC One’s camera samples yet, therefore, at this stage, we can only judge the camera as per the pixel density – which are 13 MP (rear-facing) and 4 MP (rear-facing) for the Galaxy S4 and HTC one respectively, where as the front facing cameras are 2 MP and 2.1 MP for Galaxy S4 and HTC one respectively. Which together makes the Galaxy S4 to be slightly ahead of HTC One.

Battery and Operating System

The Samsung Galaxy S4 attributes a 2600 mAh battery whereas the HTC One again proves to be on the lower end of the stick with only having a 2300 mAh battery pack. Similar to this case is the comparison of OS because the HTC One is again one step behind the Galaxy S4 in relevance to its OS – to make it pertinent, let me tell you the exact OSes which are Jelly Bean 4.1.2 for HTC One and Jelly Bean 4.2.2 for Galaxy S4. Therefore I’m again sorry to tell the HTC One fans that the HTC One is again the one loosing over here.

So as a footnote to this whole comparison, there is only one thing which I can say, which is that the Galaxy S4 is clearly the winner.
