Parting is such sweet sorrow... Yesterday marked the end of my time with the HTC One M8, on loan from Bell
I supposed that the next logical step would be for me to spend some quality time with the other
flagship smartphone of early 2014, the Samsung Galaxy S5. I've handled a pre-production model briefly, and while it seems like a solid upgrade to the GS4 it's not at all in the same class as the M8, at least in terms of the hardware. In fact, I don't think anything is—compared to the M8 my own Nexus 5 feels like a cheap plastic toy.
But there exists a phone that I'd recommend over the M8 to to prospective buyers, and that's the One before it.
