Samsung Galaxy S5 vs HTC One M8: video and sound recording comparison
For more details, check out our web site: http://www.phonearena.com/
We take the Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8 for a night out at a concert to see how the top Android smartphones will record video in the scarce light in a club, and who has the better sound recording capabilities.
HTC M8 is much sharper look at the man’s head – its way sharper.
Haha. This is so funny with all the fanboys getting their arse in to make their phone win. Look, from a total impartial point:
One M8 looks sharper in video and also way better in audio especially when sound touches high note.
Now this is the case of night time. Perhaps daytime video will bring opposite result in case of video but not for audio.
Get it fanboys 🙂
Well, getting the HTC One M8 then, obviously the sound quality is better, and in these conditions even the video quality is superb over the S5 (Moving objects occasionally a blur, and also doesnt show as much detail), but even so, do i really need a camera for my phone? Not really, atleast i dont anyway, besides if i ever took selfies, the One beats it anyway with a 5 MP front facing camera
They’re pretty much identical 🙂
@allhellhere Your right 👍 except in the audio part, we have to recognize that the Galaxy S5 sounds better that the Htc in this record. I can’t wait to see a comparison with the Lumia 1020 (best camera phone ever)
how can we compare sound quality when both mobiles are placed one above the other…???
I feel like the One is better because the S5 camera can take in 4x the detail but the One managed to make its quality look just as good if not better in some areas
M8 has that better mic built in almost like a Nokia but not as good. Galaxys always sound like shit at concerts especially bigger shows with louder speakers (I’m a galaxy owner)
Sony fans are idiot s
By the way, does anybody know the bands on the video? They sound good.
Only a slight difference so we can say that the camera isn’t a deal breaker. Now, I’m back on the fences deciding which is better.
M8 is excellent in audio but surprised by the video
The M8’s camera is a shit, but the audio is amazing.
The audio of M8 is better
I hate to say it but the HTC one M8 clearly one this. Sharper and more accurate. Every time you pause the video and compare the images, the HTC always shows a lot more detail in these lighting conditions. If you had to take a low light shot into a police station which one would you wish you had. I would say the M8, hands down.
Both recording in 1080p? Why not turn on Live-HDR Mode for the GS5 while recording the video & sound?
Less distortion on htc one m8. I like the gs5 but htc one wins That’s it. The gs5 handles the highs and lows not a well as the htc one m8
S5: Sharper video quality, slightly better dynamic range
One M8: Colours less overblown, clearer audio
S5 LOSES. Cause once the bass comes in there’s major distortion. For very loud concerts you have to have the HTC. I’m an s4 owner so I’m not biased. Just truth.
Isn’t the HTC One supposed to be so great in low light? I can hardly tell much of a difference in quality.
Galaxy s5 I think is better!
I think HTC wins – sounds more clear, picture is slightly better.
HTC ONE M8 🙂
Xperia z1s win.
is much better !!!
Htc wins for me
I think that both are the same but the gs5 is a little bit cleaner
Htc is better in video and audio capture.
Htc one m8 hands down … Samsung and there million mega pixel is not working here
M8 was far better than S5
Sound is much better on the M8 and it looks sharper.
audio quality of the M8 is really gooood !
s5 – blurry or out of focus, better audio
ht one m8 – sharper image
Samsung S5: better stability
HTC One: better colour and sound
The audio of M8 is better
M8 win in sound quality and s5 wins in video quality
Throw a Lumia 1520 or 1020 in there and see those top of the line droid perform against it 🙂
it’s not about the video quality it’s about audio quality stupid,in rock or metal consert the sound of drums have so basse,audio quality is more important
I have an HTC m8. I do not get this. It won’t record at a concert at all. The audio is like its too loud and muffled, the video is a blur of weak color. Same with pics. Pathetic. Is there an app or something I’m missing?
I own the S5 for couple of weeks now, honestly low light performance of S5 still and video not that great at all compare it to M8. M8 looks way better than S5 in this video S5 blur the scene at low light unlike M8.
Best audio in HTC ONE M8 but i’m suprised that Samsung improve their quality audio recording in video. That’s a good way
Htcs ‘ultrapixel’ is crap.
THANK YOU VERRY MUCH this video helped me deside which phone i will buy HTC 4 ever 😛
Not in the same level, M8 wins larger.
I really dont know why people would buy an S5…….. M8 all the way……
