Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8 is the hottest devices on the market right now. However, here's a list of 5 Galaxy S5 features that you won't find in the One M8:


1- High-resolution camera



We can all agree that megapixels aren't the primary factor when it comes to the quality of a camera's images, but they sure are important. At least that's what we've come to learn by examining the HTC One (M8)'s 4 MP UltraPixel shooter and the GS5's 16 MP camera. Fact is that the higher resolution of the S5's pictures translates into way more visible detail.

2- IP 67 certification



Sure, the One (M8) cannot be scared by a few drops of water, but how about having a swim? Well, that's a strict no-no. However, that's absolutely possible with the Galaxy S5 which is IP 67 certified, meaning that it's completely dust-proof, and can be submerged in up to 1 meter of water for as long as 30 minutes. Not that you're advised to try it, but the comfort of knowing your device isn't in constant danger can be valuable.


3- Fingerprint sensor

Although it may not be the perfect implementation, the fingerprint sensor of the Galaxy S5 is still there, and can be used for things like secure unlocking and PayPal purchase authorization. Yes, it may not work each and every time, and yes it requires you to swipe with moderate speed, instead of just touch, but hey - it's better than having no fingerprint sensor at all, right?

4- Removable battery

History has proven that the lack of a removable battery isn't a deal-breaker for most users out there, but for a tech-savvy person, being able to remove and swap the battery of a mobile device on the fly can be priceless, especially if you're used to watching a lot of video or playing games throughout the day. That's one thing that the One (M8)'s attractive aluminum body cannot offer you.

5- USB 3.0 port

We have to admit that Samsung is a pioneer when it comes to incorporating USB 3.0 in smartphones. After the Galaxy Note 3, the manufacturer has decided to include support for the new USB standard in its Galaxy S5 flagship smartphone, and that's great news, since it's going to allow faster transfer speeds and faster charging through the USB port of a computer. Meanwhile, the One (M8) can only offer you a good old USB 2.0 connection.
