元器件交易网讯 3月17日消息，据外媒报道，新款HTC One（M8）目前还未公布，发布日期定于3月25日。然而关于这款手机的规格、设计和功能已经被媒体曝光了大部分。外媒PhoneArena由此对这两款手机做了初步比较。
老实说，三星最新旗舰机Galaxy S5并没有真正突出其设计个性。当然其它们相当薄轻，但是总体而言，其光滑紧凑的构造并不能让人尖叫。这一次，三星的设计师们采取一种稍微不同的方法把Galaxy S5的背板设计成穿孔点模式，采用闪闪发光的喷砂面。因此，手机看起来更精致，表面摸起来没有太粗或太滑。然而，全新的HTC One设计可能高于S5。按照曝光的信息来看，HTC的新旗舰将采用广受好评的全金属结构，辅以刷面处理。
缺点是HTC One预计将比三星Galaxy S5略厚。泄露的文件表明，前者厚度9.35毫米重的160克，而后者厚8.1毫米重145克。
外观和尺寸方面，三星Galaxy S5有几个新的配置是HTC One所没有的，包括嵌入到Home键的指纹传感器和设备背部的心率传感器。前者是用于解锁手机，以及限制访问某些文件存储,后者是健康应用程序用于监控用户的活动，还有就是Galaxy S5可防水。但是HTC One也有一长串功能列表。
另一方面，新的HTCOne的前面将配备BoomSound扬声器，将传递高质量的立体声。而三星Galaxy S5只在背部有一个扬声器。这可能使HTC One更适用那些经常用智能手机听音乐、看视频和玩游戏的用户。
三星Galaxy S5和新的HTC One都配备1080像素显示器。这是否让人恼火？不，绝对不是。因为一款1080智能手机屏幕在正常使用条件下可比肉眼睛检测更多的细节。此外，高分辨率的显示器会对手机的硬件造成更多的压力，会导致其性能降低或增加能耗。这就是为什么我们完美与三星和HTC推出旗舰店宣传1080 p的屏幕。
就屏幕大小而言，三星 Galaxy S5和HTC One都相当大。前者屏幕5.1英寸，后者5英寸，像素密度分别是432和441 ppi。
既然已经讨论了相似之处，是时候区分两款手机的屏幕了。就传统来说，三星Galaxy S5配备了一个超级AMOLED显示屏，并不是那么糟的选择。人们倾向于喜欢鲜明的色彩和良好的可视角度。另一方面，HTC可能是要用 Super LCD屏，HTC对此传闻一直保持沉默。由于最新的HTC旗舰机都用LCD面板，推测HTC One将继续沿袭这个传统。毕竟，去年的HTC One屏幕看起来很突出，但愿下一款旗舰机将更加令人印象深刻。至于是否比Galaxy S5好，还有待观察。
If we had to make a list of the most highly anticipated smartphones right now, then the Samsung Galaxy S5 would probably stand right at the very top of it. The handset is expected to sell by the boatloads once it is released in April, landing in the pockets of both loyal Samsung followers and anyone looking for a capable high-end Android device. But the competition is definitely not going to just stand and watch. Samsung"s latest and greatest Android phone will have to face a number of tough opponents on its way to commercial success, and one of the toughest among them will be the All New HTC One (also referred to by its M8 codename).
Now would be a good time to stress that the new HTC One has not been publicly unveiled yet. That is scheduled to happen on March 25. The endless stream of leaks, however, has already revealed most of what one might want to know about HTC"s upcoming flagship – specs, design, features, you name it. With such a clear idea as to what the All New HTC One will have to offer, and having spent some personal, one-on-one time with the Samsung Galaxy S5, we feel informed well enough to present you with this preliminary comparison between the two handsets.
Truth to be told, Samsung"s last few Galaxy S flagships didn"t really stand out much with their design particularities. Sure, they were remarkably thin and light, but overall, their glossy plasticky construction couldn"t wow us. This time around, Samsung"s designers have taken a slightly different approach by treating the Galaxy S5"s back plate to a perforated dot pattern and a shimmering matte finish. As a result, the phone looks far more sophisticated than its predecessors despite its plastic build. Its surface feels nice to the touch without being too rough or too slippery. The All New HTC One, however, is likely to score higher than the S5 in the design department. That"s because according to what has been leaked, HTC"s new flagship will adopt the critically acclaimed, all-metal construction of its predecessor, complemented by a brushed finish.
On the downside, the next HTC One is expected to be slightly thicker and heavier than the Samsung Galaxy S5. Leaked papers indicate that the former will have a thickness of 0.37 inches (9.35 millimeters) and weight of 5.64 oz (160 grams), while the latter is 0.32 inches (8.1 millimeters) thick and weighs 5.11 oz (145 grams).
Looks and proportions aside, the Samsung Galaxy S5 has a few tricks up its sleeve – tricks that the New HTC One won"t have to offer, as far as we know. These include the S5"s fingerprint sensor, which is embedded in its home key, and the heart rate sensor placed on the device"s back. The former is used for unlocking the phone, as well as for restricting access to certain files stores on it, while the latter works in conjunction with the S Health app to monitor the user"s activity during exercise. No less important is the fact that the Galaxy S5 is a water-resistant phone. Of course, the absence of these three perks in the new HTC flagship won"t render it not worth buying, but they do add to the already long list of features that make the Galaxy S5 such an exceptional device.
On the other hand, the front of the All New HTC One will be graced by a pair of BoomSound speakers, which will deliver high-quality stereo sound, judging by our experience with the HTC One. The Samsung Galaxy S5 has just one loudspeaker, which is placed on its back. This could potentially make the new HTC One more desired by those who often listen to music from their smartphone, as well as those who enjoy watching videos and playing games on their handset.
From the looks of it, smartphones sporting QHD displays are bound to go on sale before 2014 is out. In case you"re wondering, 1440 by 2560 is the jaw-dropping pixel count behind this acronym. Both the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the new HTC One, however, will come with 1080 by 1920 pixel displays. Should that bother anyone? Nope, absolutely not since a 1080p smartphone screen is already detailed enough to produce more detail than our eyes can detect under normal usage conditions. Also, a higher-resolution display would have put more strain on these phones" hardware, which could potentially result in poorer performance and/or increased power consumption. That"s why we"re perfectly fine with Samsung and HTC launching flagships touting 1080p screens.
As far as size goes, the screens on the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the new HTC One should be almost equally large. For the record, the former has a slight advantage with its 5.1-inch display, even though the latter lags behind only by a hair, offering a screen of 5 inches. Pixel density figures are 432 and 441 ppi respectively.
Now that we"ve gone over the similarities, it is time to highlight what could set the two phones" screens apart. True to its traditions, Samsung has equipped the Galaxy S5 with a Super AMOLED display, which isn"t that bad of a choice. People tend to like them for their vibrant colors and excellent viewing angles. HTC, on the other hand, is probably going to use a Super LCD screen for its new One. We don"t know for sure whether or not that"s the case, and the rumor mill has been silent on the matter, but since recent HTC flagships have all relied on LCD panels, it seems safe to assume that the new HTC One will stick to this trend. Not that we"re complaining. After all, the screen on last year"s HTC One looked outstanding, and we"re expecting for the display on its successor to be no less impressive. Whether it will be better-looking that the Galaxy S5"s, however, remains to be seen.
