Side-by-side comparison of the new HTC One (M8), Samsung Galaxy S5, Sony Xperia Z2 and LG G Pro 2

Flagship Comparison - HTC One

We are well aware of the differences and key features of the recently unveiled Sony, Samsung, LG and HTC flagships. However, nothing explains better than a picture. So to give us a better idea of how each of these devices fare, Taiwanese site ePrice decided to pit them against each other to better assess the differences in terms of size.

As you can see from the image above, the LG G Pro 2 is the biggest of the lot, thanks to its 5.9 inch display, which puts it in the phablet segment. The smallest of the four handsets is the Galaxy S5, with the HTC One and the Sony Xperia Z2 featuring a relatively taller design. Overall, the Xperia Z2 is just marginally taller than the HTC One and much wider as well.

The Galaxy S5 is the thinnest of the four devices at just 8.1 millimeters. In terms of weight, the G Pro 2 and the HTC One are the heaviest at 172 grams and 160 grams respectively. The Xperia Z2 follows closely at 158 grams while the Galaxy S5 is much lighter at just 142 grams.

The weight difference between the HTC One or the Xperia Z2 and the Galaxy S5 is justified as the former two use a metal and glass construction while the Samsung flagship is predominantly plastic or polycarbonate. The aluminum unibody design of the HTC One understandably comes with a trade-off.

    i want the Z2

    I used to have a Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 on AT&T. Still the best, most reliable phone I ever owned, even after replacing it with a Galaxy S3, and then a LG G2 and then a Motorola Moto X (my current phone).

    The Moto X is astoundingly good, and does everything I ask of it, but the SE X10 was… plucky. It would whine, it would complain, but there was never an Andorid challenge it actually backed down from, even when the hardware it ran on was woefully underclassed for the software.

    It was the best phone I ever owned, and established in my mind that Sony could produce the Jeeps of the smartphone world.

    Of course, 2012 (when I was finally eligible for an upgrade) was when Sony did all but pull out of the American market entirely, and my dreams of owning an affordably priced, gives-everything-a-shot-and-goes-the-extra-mile-for-it-all Sony phone became a pipe dream: The Ion was a disappointment, the Xperia Play flopped TERRIBLY, the Xperia Arc line just quietly ran away when nobody was looking, and the XPERIA S, P, T, TL, and V phones didn’t hit the strides any of them were looking for. And then the Z came along on NO US CARRIERS, all terribly crackable glass (gorilla glass is tough, but give it a 4 foot drop onto concrete flooring and suddenly it doesn’t look so hot) on front and back and a potato chip thinness and a price tag to make an iPhone blush… and suddenly I didn’t want a Sony so much anymore. The Z1 iteration and it’s ilk, finally appearing in the US, didn’t sway me much either.
    Here’s hoping the Z2 shows up on AT&T (the only game in Alaska as of now) for a reasonable price.
    Don’t fail me Sony!

    • Sony has what it takes, they just need to get their things together and produce a good phone.
