HTC One M8 vs LG G2

LG’s G2 currently exists as the company’s high-end flagship smartphone, and today a new competitor entered the market. HTC officially took the wraps of the highly anticipated HTC One (M8) on Tuesday, a device that was built to go to-to-toe with all other flagships. So, to help you out, we built spec comparisons that show the internal specs of each and how they compare side-by-side.

What you might not find in the specs is that the two differ drastically in design. LG took a unique approach by adding the volume and power buttons on the back, creating a minimal and beautiful look, while using plastic for the body. Meanwhile, HTC opted to again use an all aluminum unibody design, but it too added something unique: a Duo Camera on the back of the device that includes an Ultrapixel camera sensor and a secondary depth sensor.

The two phones are flagships, but they differ greatly in hardware and software aspects. To get a better idea on just how much they differ, check out the spec sheets below.
