Training materials leaked from both HTC and Samsung identify the arguments each manufacturer hopes will persuade you to buy its new flagship handset.

HTCSource posted a flyer showing that HTC has five main arguments, and seven secondary ones, for the HTC One M8. The primary features highlighted are the metal casing, two front speakers, tap & swipe features to facilitate one-handed use, the duo camera and the HTC Advantage program … 

A presentation slide posted to Weibo revealed that Samsung in turn is focusing on seven key features for the Galaxy S5: water- and dust-proofing, a higher-resolution camera with faster focus, child-proof features, removeable battery, power-saving mode and fingerprint security.


The Samsung slide is in Chinese, but you can read the full HTC document below. If you prefer a more objective source, you can read our HTC One M8 review and our in-depth comparison between the Galaxy S4 and S5.

    I usually like to stick to the facts when commenting on the innernutz, but I must leave an opinion today. My wife had a Note 3 since November and swapped it for an M8 a few days ago. So, I was able to use both some in forming this opinion. I like the HTC better. It feels good, it sounds good, it swipes good, the keyboard is good, it looks good. I like the camera which is quick and clear and focuses fast. She wanted me to have it so I gave her my Nexus 5. Now that she’s used the Nexus 5 (with CM) and the Note 3, she feels disappointed and betrayed by Samsung. So, I really hope the Galaxy S 5 is different. I hope Samsung leverages all that horsepower with a better interface. From the leaked images I’ve seen I believe they may have. Samsung has so much potential it’s a shame they aren’t doing better.
