I like the HTC One- their Lumia devices and the Moto X.

What I would recommend is maybe to play with different smartphones at a store or by a friends house to see how they are different and what you like.

I have the new htc one m8 . Its an amazing device, and in my opinion much better than the s5. The battery lasts me more than a day of heavy usage, and its simpler than the galaxys. The only drawback is the camera which is good but not great.

Unless you're enlarging your photos the HTC One takes pictures great. And I myself prefer the software of the HTC One 100x more than the Galaxy software.

Both good devices. I'm more of an Android fan myself.
The main differences besides the actual OS are the size and the ability to add a micro sd card and removable battery.

Its not too big and battery is great as it is. Look on the S5 thread for more information. There you will also see the issues people have had with it. Obviously, all phones have some flaws.
