Head-to-Head: HTC One M8 vs. Apple iPhone 5s



Communications

The HTC One employs 802.11ac. The iPhone 5s does not. Approved in January, 802.11ac once it proliferates through the infrastructure will permit Wi-Fi speeds approaching 1 Gbps. Both devices also include Bluetooth 4.0, dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n and 4G LTE on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon. HTC One adds NFC and DLNA for streaming media to compatible displays and other devices. Apple supports AirPlay, a proprietary streaming protocol; the company does not support NFC in any of its devices.
