The HTC One M8 and the Nokia Lumia 925 are both competitive smartphones that can stand up against today’s flagship devices. However, only one of them can come out on top. Let’s see exactly which one is better and why, in this compelling comparison.
HTC One M8
The HTC-built device comes running the latest operating system from Microsoft, namely Windows Phone 8.1. It measures at 5.76 x 2.78 x 0.37 and weighs 160 grams. Its slightly larger weight is due to the fact that its internal hardware components all wrapped in a high quality build metal chassis. The metal body is also wrapped around the 5 inch screen that comes with the device, along with its 1920 x 1080 resolution. Moving on to the phone’s camera, we have a 4 MP Duo camera. The front facing camera that comes with the One M8 is actually bigger, with a total of 5 MP. Nevertheless, the phone is capable of HDDR and shooting 1080p HD videos. The processor that handles all the heavy duty with this device is a quad core unit clocked at 2.3 GHz. The memory that comes in support of these specifications are 2 GB of RAM memory, and 32 GB of internal storage space, which can be boosted all the way up to 128 GB if the original amount isn’t enough for you. The included 2600 mAh is able to sustain the device for 22 hours of talk time.
Nokia Lumia 925
The Nokia Lumia 925 is also a smart device that operates on the Windows Phone operating system from Microsoft, just like its opponent for today, the One M8. The Lumia device loses the first battle, with its 4.5 inch screen, which is a full inch smaller that the M8 display and features a 768 x 1280 resolution. It measures at 5.08 x 2.78 x 0.33 inches, making it thinner than the HTC built device.
The camera provided by the Lumia 925 is 8.7 MP, and can also shoot 1080p videos, with the help of its OIS (Optical Image stabilization )feature. The frontal camera is only 1.2 MP. A 1.5 GHz processing unit, with only two cores will handle the processing aspect of the device. The total amount of space available on the Lumia 925 would be 16 GB, while the RAM is only 1 GB from not having any at all. The battery put in charge to supply all these with juice will feature 2000 mAh, put at your disposal. Around 18 hours of talk time have been assured for this device.
If you were planning on spending your money on one of these devices, there is no logical explanation for why you would choose the Lumia over the HTC One.
