This morning HTC took the wraps off of the HTC One (M8) for Windows, a new smartphone for Verizon that offers much of the same specs as the HTC One (M8) – save for things like a barometer – and it’s quite an impressive piece of hardware. Windows Phone fans already know how excellent the Lumia 1520 is, however, and we figured we’d give you a spec showdown so that you can see how the two devices stack up side by side.
The Lumia 1520 is definitely the larger of the two handsets and it packs more megapixels than the HTC One (M8) for Windows‘ 4-Ultrapixel sensor. Both have unique software, however. The Lumia 1520 has access to the Nokia’s camera software, which so far we can’t find available for the HTC One (M8) with Windows. The M8 with Windows, meanwhile, has HTC’s BlinkFeed software installed, which is great for browsing your news feeds, social networks and more.
We’ll stop talking and let you see how the two devices stack up side-by-side now.
