Head-To-Head: Samsung Galaxy S5 Vs. HTC One M8

Processor, Graphics And Memory

This category is a wash. Both the HTC One and Galaxy S5 are built around Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 801 SoC, 32-bit quad-core processor and have 2 GB of RAM for running the OS and applications. The One runs at 2.3GHz; the S5 at 2.5GHz. Also inside is an Adreno 330 GPU, which doubles performance of the Adreno 320 found in the prior model from both companies. Both units are sold with 16 GB or 32 GB of storage, and both have a microSD card slot for adding as much as 128 GB of storage and file I/O.
