Samsung Galaxy S4 vs. iPhone 5, HTC One up close

This article contains a number of videos delivering a hands-on review with the Samsung Galaxy S4 vs. iPhone 5 vs. HTC One, and each visual will capture a close up with what is claimed to be the biggest smartphones available right now. The article has been updated on May 12 with another video delivering an in-depth look at the Samsung Galaxy S4 camera vs. HTC One’s UltraPixel alternative.

When you gather up three of the most talked about phones this year there are bound to be comparisons made with everything from specs and performance to overall look and price range. With the Samsung Galaxy S4 being the newest out of the three we are intrigued to know what the thoughts are when it measures up to the iPhone 5 and the HTC One.

As far as specs are concerned the Galaxy S4 is on par with the HTC One when it comes to RAM with 2GB as opposed to the iPhone’s 1GB, and the S4 camera has an impressive 13MP rear camera with 2MP at the front, while the iPhone only has an 8MP rear and 1.2MP front, with the HTC One containing a 4UP Ultrapixel rear ad 2.1MP front wide-angle camera.

The battery life on the S4 is ideal as it is removable consisting of 2.600mAh while the HTC has 2300mAh and the iPhone only 1440mAh. The iPhone is still in front for being the lighter out of the three weighing in at only 112 grams, while the S4 come second at only 130g and the HTC at 143g.

Rather than babble on about the differences, we thought it would be a good idea to let our readers see some YouTube comparison videos we have embedded below, and the first one shows the Samsung Galaxy S4 versus the HTC One, while the second also done by the same person gives us some insight into the Galaxy S4 up against the iPhone 5.

The third gives us the opportunity to check out the differences between the HTC One and the iPhone 5, therefore, we would love to know what your thoughts are on all the comparisons made.

Update May 12: We embedded another video below, the last one, which takes a really in-depth look at the cameras on the Samsung Galaxy S4 vs. HTC One. The video runs for 14 minutes and 47 seconds, which aims to find out the best camera on two of the best Android phones available in May 2013.

Take a look at this new camera comparison and also the other hands-on reviews in case you’ve missed them, and then let us know which smartphone you prefer from the Samsung Galaxy S4, Apple iPhone 5 and HTC One?
