In the circle of today’s smartphones, as the development of technology, users’ needs for mobiles are endless. In the process of competing, each mobile manufacturer are paying their attentions on hardware, appearance, performance of its products. As long as one can’t keep up with, it may be abandonned by customers and switch to other brands. Especially those high-end phones whose price is above 3000 yuan.
We must be very familiar with HTC and LG. Once upon a time, the both brands are dominant in the field of international goods. Faced with the rapid rise of the emerging smartphone manufacturers, HTC and LG are encountering unprecedented predicament in recent years. Today, HTC and LG’s 2015 annual flagship separately listed – respectively HTC One M9 and LG G4. The public order official guidance prices are not more than 4000 yuan. HTC One M9’s price recently is dropping down again, while LG G4 is still keeping its original price of 3999 yuan. Now 3299 yuan is fighting with 3999 yuan, which one will win in this war?
Today, Talkingmobi makes an objective test to compare both smartphones with some data and experience. I hope this article can hela you in some way.
As for the appearance, HTC One M9 and LG G4 are inherited well from the classic design of the family of their own. so the both phones are completely different style on appearance.
Firstly, we mainly talk about the first impressions. If there is no classic “smiling face” Logo, LG G4 is difficult to make a great impression for customers; HTC One M9 features all metal fuselage.Additionally, HTC One M9 uses HTC One family classic double loudspeaker design. This design make M9 won the high recognition degree, at least in my opinion.
Secondly, we talk about Handling. First of all, the HTC One M9 features metal and LG G4 plastic shell, which had no effect on the grip handling. But it is no doubt that HTC One M9 handling is better, and this is mainly embodied in two aspects. First, the M9 owns 5 inch screen, so one hand is easier to operate; Second, this device does not blindly pursue ultrathin. The back curve is fitting the shape of the hand. Perhaps only when you are truly hold HTC One M9, can you realize this is fitted and very comfortable feeling. Of course, the use of metal material is favourable, such as in the cold northern winter, metal inevitably become ice blocks.
We can’t say that LG G4 handling feeling is not good. Compared with HTC One M9, LG G4 has the slightly wider body.
The 5.5″ QHD (1440 x 2560px) Quantum Display IPS LCD is the highlight of LG G4. HTC One M9 uses common 1080P screen. Through our objective test data, it shows that LG G4 integrated display quality is higher than HTC One M9. But the display of LG G4 has backlight features, so G4 screen brightness is lower. But from the point of actual visual effects, there is no apparent brightness difference.
Objective test brightness values from above, the final screen uniformity of two machines: HTC One M9 is 10.1, LG G4 36.65. Specifically, we should see film screen results below.
As the high-end handset above 3000 yuan, HTC One M9 and LG G4 are outstanding performance’s flagship product.
HTC One M9 installs Android 5.0 Lolipop OS(HTC Sense 7.0) , and support NFC Function/Wireless Charge/Digital Compass Function.
Flagships get better with every generation but some of last year’s are as good as reborn. The LG G4 improves on the three best features of its predecessor: design, screen, the camera – and does so decisively. It adopts a G Flex curve, but makes it its own with an optional stitched leather back. Additionally, LG G4 has three main disadvantages: Chipset isn’t top of the range, No IP-certification for dust or water resistance, No Quick Charge charger in the box. So in my opinion, HTC One M9 is the better one. Which one do you choose?
