Samsung has made a good phone, but HTC has made a great one. Whereas the Samsung has focussed on function at the expense of design, HTC has perfected the details people will use everyday. Every small part of it, from the design to the sound, has been refined to deliver an experience that is unforgettable.
HTC has perfected the details people will use everyday
The results of a recent Good Gear Guide poll seem to agree. More than 600 GGG readers voted for the best smartphone of 2014. Almost one in two people (48%) intend to buy the HTC One (M8), while roughly one in four (29%) want the Samsung Galaxy S5 at the time of writing.
These results signify HTC’s gradual shift from smartphone contender to trend-setter. In fact, HTC’s recent go-to market strategy, where the company unveiled the One (M8) last and then released it in stores first, reminded us of a younger Samsung: passionate, studios and hungry.
We have included the poll below. Feel free to register your vote, share it with your friends and voice your opinion in the comments section. Over time, the poll’s results could see another smartphone grab the lion’s share of votes. And that would be perfectly fine.
Winner: HTC One (M8)
