HTC One versus Apple iPhone 5 – spec showdown

HTC One versus Apple iPhone 5 – spec showdown

Now that the HTC One is official, we thought we’d give you a quick breakdown of its specs and show you how it compares to the Apple iPhone 5. If you ask us, the HTC One is going to be a huge success, but is it right phone for you? As much as we like HTC phones, we have to admit that there is some good competition out there to choose from.

The Apple iPhone 5 may run on a different operating system than the HTC One, but that doesn’t mean consumers won’t be matching them up in retails stores as they try to figure out which one is better. Both the HTC One and Apple iPhone 5 feature an aluminum shell, great cameras and stunning design, but it’s the internal components which really make a difference in the long run. Let the HTC One versus Apple iPhone 5 battle begin!
