The most important doctrine for any smartphone to follow in order to make it one of the most happening devices among users is to fill the device up with a host of specs and features that will rise above others. And this doctrine, as expected, has brought a lot of success for a number of vendors in the market.
The Indian smartphone market, if you have noticed in recent times, has opened up enough to let in a host of new vendors and manufacturers. And while the market has already been divided in three different parts: for the low range, mid range and high range, it seems like all the parts are doing decent enough business.
While we have big names already operating quite well in the market like Apple, Samsung and Sony, there are others who, not necessarily India-based, are also trying hard to reap something out of the market. And two such new devices that are expected to make it big in the coming days are the LG G3 and the popular HTC One M8.
Both HTC and LG don't really have much to show for as far as previous market presence is concerned. In fact, none of the others in the race have been able to stand up to the might of Apple or Samsung in recent times. Nonetheless, others are trying to get into the act as soon as possible.
Keeping out of the equation all the Samsungs and Apples for the moment, we are currently focussing on the HTC and LG devices. What could happen if the devices went head to head against each other in the race? We take a closer look at the specs comparison between both.
