Difference between iPhone 5S and HTC One

Key difference: iPhone 5S is the latest smartphone by Apple. It features Apple OS 7 and is available in 3 colors: white, black and gold. HTC One is a flagship phone of the HTC Corporation. It was launched in March 2013.

iPhone 5S is the newest phone launched by Apple Inc. The phone was launched in September 2013 after weeks of speculation. At the same time, Apple executives also announced the launch of iPhone 5C, essentially a cheaper version of the iPhone 5S. iPhone 5 has been discontinued in light of the new release; however, iPhone 4S will still be available.

iPhone 5S has been launched in three variants: 16 GB, 32 GB, and 64 GB; each of which are available in three colors: silver, space grey and gold.

The whole itself hasn’t changed much, the device itself retain the 4-inch retina screen and its thin and light body. However, additional features of the phone include a fingerprint identity sensor; a better and faster camera; an operating system built specifically for 64-bit; Sapphire crystal in the home button and protecting the iSight camera.

In May 2012, HTC Corporation launched the HTC One X. Then in February, the company announced the launch of its new flagship phone, the HTC One. This often causes confusion as this phone is expected to be a successor to the One X. HTC One is expected to be superior compared to the One X in hardware design and software design. It also includes a unique camera implementation

In terms of hardware, HTC One sports a 4.7 inch Super LCD3, with Full HD1080p, 468 PPI and Corning Gorilla Glass 2. The HTC one comes with Android v4.1.2 Jelly Bean that is upgradable to v4.2.2. The case is an all-aluminum frame with an antenna built into its backing. It includes a 1.7 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, Adreno 320 GPU and 2 GB DDR2. The phone is available with non-expandable, 32 or 64GB internal capacity.

The main feature of the phone was the new pixilation system that is opted for in the primary camera of the phone, which provides each pixel size of 2.0 µm and sensor size of 1/3'. The One also includes a new camera app known as ‘Zoe’, which records a short video alongside every photo taken and allows the resulting photos and videos to be automatically combined and synchronized with music to produce a multimedia presentation known as a Zoe.
