LG G3 vs HTC One M9 – who is better
There is nothing better than to be announced new smartphone offering many exciting features. Fortunately, Mobile World Congress this year proposed a number of great news from major leading manufacturers of mobile devices.
HTC One M9 is not materially different from his predecessors. The device has an aluminum body, but is now available in two versions – silver and gold and a combination of dark shades. Side frame around the display of the HTC One M9 has become less than the previous model, but overall the unit is slightly smaller and thicker but lighter than then its predecessor. The dimensions of the phone are 144,6×69,7×9,61 mm, weighs 157 grams.
LG G3 also has a metal body, the model is available in five colors: black, white, golden, purple and red. The back cover is removable, which also allows for battery replacement if necessary. The dimensions of the phone are 146,3×74,6×8,9 mm, weighs 149 grams. The buttons are again mounted on the back of the phone for easy navigation.
One M9 has the same 5-inch, Full HD display with a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels as its predecessor. HTC said that one of the main reasons for the lack of a screen with a higher resolution in One M9 it’s the battery. The company’s goal was to provide a longer battery life of the device and that consumers can enjoy it longer.
Display in G3 is larger – 5.5 inches, Super LCD 3 and the resolution is 540 ppi or 2560×1440 pixels. Usually referred to as Quad HD or 2K display. The display is one of the best on the market today – the colors are beautiful and vivid, and the viewing angle is great. As a small disadvantage can be mentioned a little pale image in sunlight.
HTC One M9 works with Qualcomm Snapdragon 810, equipped with four energy-efficient cores running at 1,5 GHz and four running of 2 GHz. The processor is complemented by 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB internal memory, expandable through microSD memory cards.
LG G3 comes in two varieties – 16 GB / 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB / 3 GB RAM and works with 4-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor 801 (2.5 GHz).
Rear camera of HTC One M9 is a powerful 20.7-megapixel f/2.2 aperture for great low-light shooting. The camera also shoots movies in 4K resolution. In the front of the HTC One M9 will find 4 megapixel camera UltraPixel.
For comparison LG G3 has 13 megapixel rear camera and 2.1 megapixel front camera. One of the novelties is the presence of a laser autofocus DSLR cameras characteristic of high-end and thanks to him the phone focuses on the very short time – 0.267 seconds.
HTC One M9 has a 2840 mAh battery. Given that Snapdragon 810 is an economical energy consumption and the screen resolution is not the highest, we can expect a good level of autonomy. HTC has said that the battery can last up to 25.4 hours of talk time on 2G networks and 21.7 hours in 3G.
The battery of the LG G3 is slightly larger 3000 mAh, but the processor is not energy efficient and some consumers complain about the rapid exhaustion of the battery.
HTC One M9 works with Android Lollipop with the new interface HTC Sense 7.0. The main difference from the previous version lies in the greater opportunities for personalization. On the other hand LG G3 works with Android 4.4 KitKat, but Lollipop update is now available for it.
