Galaxy S5 vs. HTC One M8 for speediness

By Updated on

It makes perfect sense for a Galaxy S5 vs. HTC One M8 test seeing as though the two handsets have only just been released. Both run on Android 4.4 KitKat and offer very similar hardware specs, which makes these pretty level smartphones. There are many aspects of each phone that need to be considered, although for many of you speed is key, which is why we have featured two speed test videos to help highlight the speediness of these two Android handsets.

With these Galaxy S5 vs. HTC One M8 speed test videos below you get to see just how these smartphones compare, and we thought it was better to embed the two reviews so you don’t think one video test was bias.

We have to warn that the first video does have some bad language, although it is still worth watching because you get to see first hand the speed difference between the two. However, that was with Fast Boot off, but once switched on it is a different story, although it does take more battery life.

What we love about the second video is how the video tester performs some everyday task to help compare the speed of the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the HTC One M8, such as going from one app to another.

There are several other videos of this type on YouTube, and so you might want to check some of them out.

Do you feel that the speed of a smartphone is important to you, and if so, which do you pick as your winner, the Galaxy S5 or HTC One M8?
