Specs Comparison: LG G3 vs. Galaxy S5. vs. HTC One (M8)

If you are considering the LG G3, you probably want to know how it compares to the other flagship phones of the moment. Devices like the Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC one (M8), and maybe even the Nexus 5 are all more than likely on your radar. To help you decide, we put together a classic comparison sheet of their specs, so you can at least see how they stack up to one-another on paper.

The G3 is the first of the bunch to use a QHD display, so in terms of display, it clearly stands above the rest. But is the 13MP camera, metallic body, new flat LG UI,  3000mAh battery, and combination of storage and RAM enough to make it the best of them all? Tough to say until we all spend more time with the G3.

Buy an HTC One (M8) at AT&T, Save $50 on FitBit One or Flex

Starting today, if you pick up a One (M8) from HTC at an AT&T retail location, you could walk away with either a FitBit One or FitBit Flex for $50 off of its suggested retail price. Apparently, AT&T is the only carrier to pre-install the FitBit app as bloatware on its version of the One (M8), a fact we were unaware of.

Without the $50 discount, both FitBit devices retail for $99, so bringing them to $49 sounds like quite the bargain.  (more…)

Tuesday Poll: Which Device are You Most Looking Forward To?

As we cruise through 2014, there appears to be a lot of good things to look forward to, especially in regard to upcoming smartphones from our favorite manufacturers.

All of the top OEMs look to have top-tier devices on the horizon, plus we still have yet to see flagship devices from both Motorola and LG. Since we know pretty much everything you might need to know about the LG G3, and its unveiling date is set for May 27, our community has not been shy when sharing their high hopes for the device. We share their enthusiasm for the G3.

Motorola has been placed high upon a pedestal, having received our Android Phone of the Year in 2013 with the Moto X. Whatever the company does intend to unveil for 2014, whether it be called the Moto X+1 or not, we do hope they don’t let us down.

Interestingly enough, Samsung and HTC both appear to be preparing a “Prime” device, featuring rumored QHD displays and top-tier specifications. To round it all off, the Galaxy Note 4 is reportedly in the works from Samsung, just as you would expect from a company that isn’t about to ditch a winning formula they have been milking since 2011.

So, the question is simple – which device are you looking most forward to? Share your thoughts and concerns down below.

Alleged HTC One M8 “Prime” Specs Leaked Thanks to Twitter Beef

Over the past few hours on Twitter, @evleaks has taken to de-mystify an upcoming HTC product, known currently as the M8 Prime. The leak is thanks to HTC’s Global Communications Manager Jeff Gordon, who ambiguously told his followers on Twitter to be careful where they get their news from.

Gordon’s initial tweet stated, “In the past few days, a well-known leaker has been completely wrong about at least two of his leaks.” Taking this tweet personally, even though Gordon states it was not even about him, @evleaks decided to pull back the curtain on a few specifications for the device from Gordon’s company.  (more…)
