How does HTC’s latest match up to Google’s six-month-old Nexus?

With the launch of the new HTC One M8 last week, the first major Android flagship of 2014 is finally upon us. And as we said in our full review of the phone, the M8 is one of the most impressive Android devices we’ve used. But Google’s own flagship phone, the Nexus 5, is barely six months old, and a whole lot cheaper than an off-contract M8. (And not that much more expensive than a subsidized M8.) What’s more, you’ve got two significantly divergent software and hardware experiences on both handsets — soft-touch plastic and stock Android on the Nexus versus brushed aluminum and Sense 6.0 on the M8.

But despite their internal similarities, there are plenty of differences to mull. So join us after the break as we compared Google’s Nexus 5 to the HTC One M8.
