iPhone 6 Plus vs. HTC One (M8) Spec Shootout

The iPhone 6 Plus and the HTC One (M8) are probably two of the most gorgeous smartphones on the market right now, at least speaking from an industrial design point-of-view, and from the mostly-metal perspective. We built up spec sheets of both phones so that you can easily see how the two phones compare to one another, particularly when it comes to size, weight, included sensors, camera and processor specs, and more.

Apple’s new device hasn’t hit the market yet, of course, so we’ll reserve our final reservations on how it really stacks up against the crop of Android devices on the market for later. Still, we can compare the two side-by-side, and here’s how they match up:
