Samsung Galaxy S4 vs. HTC One M8 – Specifications and Pricing Comparison

The Samsung Galaxy S4 was one of the best offerings of the South Korean giant in 2013.

The HTC One M8 is widely regarded as one of the best smartphones of 2014. This is the replacement for the HTC One M7, which received several positive reviews amidst a little criticism, which also dominated headlines in 2013.


Samsung has altered the design of its premium Galaxy phones, although not substantially and it is evident on the Galaxy S4. Instead of the curved edges found on the Galaxy S3, this phone adopts a square design. The phone also uses more premium materials than before. The bezels have been reduced in thickness further, in the Galaxy S4, and it is now capable of supporting a slightly larger display without a significant increase in overall size.

The Galaxy S4, though, loses out considerably to the HTC One M8 in terms of design. This phone ups the ante by largely using aluminums materials throughout the device. The premium feel offered by the HTC One M8 is second to none.


The slimmer bezels of the Galaxy S4 help it to offer a 5 inch display in a phone that is smaller than the HTC One M8, which also provides a display of a similar size. Both phones provide full HD resolutions; but the way in which the output is delivered, differs. The Galaxy S4 uses Super AMOLED displays that have been regarded as one of the best. Even though the HTC One M8 uses the same Super LCD3 technology, it has been reworked to provide an impressive experience.


The 64 GB internal memory option on the Galaxy S4, does justice to the large display. The phone also comes with 16 and 32 GB internal storage options. It also comes with microSD card support of up to 64 GB. Even though the HTC One M8 lacks the 64 GB variant, the presence of support of up to 128 GB, makes it more than capable, when it comes to handling multimedia content.


A 13 megapixel camera does its job on the Galaxy S4. This camera comes with a plethora of options that are proprietary to Samsung. Common features like full HD video recording, HDR mode and image stabilization are also present. The Galaxy S4 is one of the first phones from Samsung, to offer the ability to shoot both pictures and videos at the same time. The HTC One M8 retains the controversial 4 ultra pixel camera. The benefits of having this camera are clearly visible in lowlight conditions, but it loses out in every other area. Despite being a 2014 model, the HTC One M8 does not offer 4K video recording and this may be viewed as a disappointment.

The Galaxy S4 comes with an octa core processor from Exynos, while the HTC One M8 uses a snapdragon 801 processor.

Prices of the Galaxy S4 have dropped to around $420 for the base variants. The 16 GB variants of the HTC One M8 cost around $590.
