Spec showdown: Apple iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c versus the HTC One

Spec showdown: Apple iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c versus the HTC One

The Apple iPhone 5s and the new iPhone 5c have been unveiled. The Apple iPhone 5c is merely a slightly tweaked iPhone 5 with multiple color options (white, black, pink, blue, yellow and green), but Apple has crammed in a slew of new features into iPhone 5s, including a new A7 chip for improved performance, a better camera sensor with larger pixels (it’s nice to see Apple copying some of the better features from the HTC One), a True Tone dual-LED flash intended to match the color tone of your subject better and a fingerprint scanner built into the phone’s home button.

Since we don’t claim to be experts on Apple products, so we’ll let you get all the nitty-gritty deals elsewhere. However, we will give you a quick look at how the Apple iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c compare to the HTC One.

How do you think Apple’s new iPhones compare to the HTC One?

    It pains me much to say this, but iOS7 looks really, really, sweet. Like super good. It’s gonna be hard for Android or an HTC overlay to beat it, but I hope they can.

      It looks EXACTLY like Windows Phone with a dash of Sailfish and a sprinkle of WebOS. There isn’t one feature not already being done excellently by the others. Even Apple’s own zealots at BGR and The Verge are stuck having to admit such and grasp desperately to the hope that Apple “did it better”.

    I’m happy to see the HTC One actually is a direct competitor to iPhone 5S. Actually it’s better than the iPhone on most aspects, and it has better audio features (playback, mics).

    If only HTC woulod advertise more!

    @Statue, iOS 7 is crisp and simple to use, almost too simplistic that I feel kiddish whilst using it; in my opinion iOS 7(currently using it on my developer iPod touch 5g)is pointed towards the more…. reductionist users were as Android is a much more solid operating for any phone with tonnes more to do on it therefore possibilities and features on the far are far wider than any apple mobile device.

    Long story short, iOS is boring.

    No mention of NFC?

      Apple doesn’t do anything they have to pay for. If it’s not covered by FRAND, Apple wants nothing to do with it.
