HTC One M8 or Galaxy S5? (Or maybe a new Lumia!) (MobileTechRoundup show #318)

HTC One M8 or Galaxy S5? (Or maybe a new Lumia!) (MobileTechRoundup show #318)

Summary: Kevin and I were actually able to meet up in person to look at Windows Phone 8.1 a couple weeks ago and we have many other devices that we checked out as well.


It has been about a month since Kevin and I have been able to get together for a podcast since we are both moving homes and traveling all over to cover the latest in mobile technology. Thus, you will find MobileTechRoundup show #318 goes a bit longer than usual. Show topics include:

  • I will go for HTC One M8

    I have used Galaxy Note & Galaxy Note 2 both did a pretty well. If you consider performance Note 2 had the edge. Since Samsung provides the best smart phone. But the price where a Mobile enthusiast takes a step backward. But still Galaxy S5 is good as far the tech spec looks promising. I have never used HTC Mobile Phones in my life so this time which seeing the price i would go for it and use that phone for a year and the sell it on any online classified site like Quikr or Ebay.
