iPhone 5S vs. HTC M7 (Specs and Features)
iPhone 5S features vs HTC M7 features
The design of iPhone 5S is likely to be similar to iPhone 5. We have seen that previous iPhone models retained their predecessor designs with changes in hardware like Processor, camera and Ram. iPhone 5S will be coming with the latest version of IOS, introducing tons of new features for iPhone users.
HTC M7 display will be no less than HTC One X, which is the current flagship model of HTC. Some of the leaked images of HTC M7 show that it’s made up of high quality plastic. The smartphone may get some inch bigger display while keeping the phone thin to easily handle it. It will be getting 4.7 inch display with 1080p HD resolution.

If the retina display gets no upgrades then pixel per inch (ppi) of iPhone 5s will be 326 ppi, which is far less than HTC M7.
iPhone 5 camera is one of the best cameras in smartphone market and iPhone 5s is likely to get upgrades in the camera. Apple always upgrades camera, Ram and Processor in their newer models, so we would be expecting some upgraded camera with greater megapixels.
