It’s the battle of the flagship phones! In one corner we’ve got Samsung’s Galaxy S6, and in the other corner stands the HTC One M9. Two powerful phones with sleek metal designs, cutting edge specs and the latest that Android has to offer.
There’s a few things to consider here. Samsung’s newest phone packs the company’s own octa-core Exynos processor, while HTC went with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 chip. The Galaxy S6 also packs a Quad HD display compared to the One M9’s 1080p resolution. Then again, HTC’s phone offers a bigger battery and a higher megapixel camera, though that doesn’t necessarily mean it will take better pictures.
We’re just scratching the surface here, and we’ll need to spend a lot more time with both devices before we come to a final decision. For now, you can check out a full spec-by-spec breakdown below.
