Yesterday, we put HTC’s new flagship, the HTC One, up against Samsung’s 2012 hotshot, the Galaxy S III. As such a high-profile Android, the One’s competition isn’t limited to other handsets on its own platform, and we’re going to see users taking a first look at Android give the HTC One some consideration. Will it hold its own against the likes of the iPhone 5? We took a look at both smartphones to see how they compare.
While there’s a clear size difference here, from materials to design, it’s hard to deny the HTC One has gotten a lot of, shall we say, inspiration from the iPhone 5. The iPhone 5 may be slightly thinner than the One overall, but the One’s tapered design can lead to it actually feeling a little thinner in the hand.
We check out display quality, do some browser tests, and see how fast each is at starting up apps. Each phone has its own areas where it excels; check out our video to see where these models shine the brightest.
