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


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.
