Apple has always been known for producing smartphones that have a premium feel to them but this year HTC released a handset that easily rivals the build quality of any iPhone ever made, and today we are looking at the new iPhone 5S vs. HTC One and the two devices specs.

    For me, it’s funy to compare Htc One with any i-phone. The Htc One is a smartphone, while the i-phone is just a name.
