Galaxy S5, HTC One M8

How do HTC and Samsung's flagship smartphones compare on paper?

With the arrival of the new HTC One, and before it, the Samsung Galaxy S5 at MWC, the stage is set for one of the great Android rivalries of 2014. It's way too early to call this one — the HTC One has only just launched, and the GS5 is widely available for pre-order but won't be hitting store shelves until April 11. However we're ready to go through the basics with a quick spec comparison after the break.
