The high-end Android has grown in recent weeks with the latest releases. The Mobile World Congress was held about a month ago and left its terminal step as Sony Xperia Z2. The new flagship of the Japanese brand has some interesting improvements, such as the option to record video in 4K resolution. This model continues to maintain water resistance; it is powerful and has a very elegant design. A few days ago the Taiwanese company HTC renewed its top end with the arrival of the HTC One M8, an enhanced edition of the model we already knew. The HTC One M8 also continues to promote the same design line with two large speakers on the front, but also has a more powerful processor and carries a double rear camera. We analyze the differences between these two smartphones below.
The two models have very large screens and resolution FullHD 1080p. In the case of HTC One M8 are facing a panel LCD3 Super 5 inch, concentrating 440 dots per inch. Sony has wagered for IPS technology Live Colour LED and 5.2 inches diagonally, so that its concentration is 423 points. But that is not all, is that Sony adds some image enhancement systems as TRILUMINOS and engine X-reality mobile, improving contrast and color reproduction.
We face two smartphones Android with more stylish designs. The Sony Xperia Z2 is shaped rectangular fairly sharp corners, with a sturdy frame but with all their faces covered in glass, so that the entire surface is reflective. The terminal has the certificate IP55/58 regards the resistance to water and dust. Meanwhile the HTC One M8 has a chassis metal and forms are marked by the predominance of more smooth curved lines. The front highlighted by two speakers integrated. The two models are practically equal in size and weight, although the Sony Xperia Z2 tienene a slightly slimmer profile.
The camera is one of the strengths of both models while at the same time are very different from each other. The Sony Xperia Z2 has a sensor 20.7 megapixel Exmor RS, one G lens Sony and processor BIONZ. This combination allows you to get very good pictures in low light, it is also faster and does not produce noise. The video recording is a remarkable aspect is that this model allows the registration of images in resolution 4K, but also gives the option to record video in slow motion if the quality is decreased. The camera is accompanied by a myriad of special functions, including a stabilizer, superior automatic mode and also a front chamber of 2.2 megapixels.
On the other hand the HTC One M 8 features a different system that focuses less megapixels (4 megapixels) in favor of using larger pixels. The system Ultrapixel has broader points that capture up to 300% more light by manufacturer, so it is also designed to take good pictures in low light. its lens is very bright (f/2.0) and also carries a processor, specifically a HTC imageCHIP 2. Among its salient features is the smart flash of five levels, the optical stabilizer and especially the second chamber in the upper part. With this twin lens information is captured depth image, and then they can create effects distinguishing between foreground and background. This model records Full HD videos and also has a slow function. As for the front camera, HTC strong bet with a 5 megapixel BSI sensor that takes a wide angle lens to capture a larger area.
Both have very interesting multimedia features. For HTC have focused primarily on the sound, with the front speakers, which they called HTC Boomsund, and noise cancellation system. It also has the functions HTC Zoe and Video Hightlights, along with a photo gallery organized as a timeline. The Sony Xperia Z2 also has sound enhancements as Clear Audio + and xLOUD, but includes other features such certificate PlayStation suite and Sony Entertainment Network.
Both brands have opted for the same processor for their top of the range. It is a Snapdragon 801, a quad-core with architecture Krait 400 in this case running at 2.3 Ghz clock frequency. The difference comes with the memory RAM, 2 GB in the case of HTC One M8 and 3Gb for Sony Xperia Z2. Following the memory, but now the internal, also agree on a background of 16 Gb expandable with MicroSD, but the HTC One M8 accepts units 128 Gb while the Xperia Z2 of 64 Gb max.
