    This is a tough call.

    Both phones have some great features. The main points for the Galaxy S5 include the waterproofing and the incredible battery life.

    I like the stereo speakers and the premium feel of the HTC One M8, but if I were trying to decide between these two devices it would be a really tough call.

    I have them both and deciding which one to keep. The HTC One's build quality is very impressive.

    I've not handled the S5 yet but M8 is solid ...though I have to ask y'all ..it's slippery with no case ..kinda sucks to add a case with it ..

    I've been getting 24 hours out of it after I did a factory reset.

    I was having some troubles with the battery initially and that seemed to solve it.

    I would opt for the S5 over the M8. I would like to see the LG G3 vs the S5.
