Hardware and Operating System
The HTC One M8 houses a Krait 400 processor: quad core working at 2.3 GHz. This device is paired up with the Snapdragon 801 MSM8974AB chipset from Qualcomm. The handset supports 2GB of RAM and it can be purchased with two options of internal storage: 16GB and 32GB (you can expand this memory by up to 128GB via microSD card). The One M8 runs on Android KitKat.
The Samsung Galaxy Golden is powered by a Krait processor: dual core working at 1.7 GHz. The chipset that comes along is a Snapdragon 400 MSM8930 from Qualcomm. This device has more RAM, 2.5 GB, but it has only one option of internal memory space and that would be 16GB (by using a microSD card you can expand this memory by up to 64GB). The operating system for the Galaxy Golden is Android Jelly Bean.
If you are always using your front-facing camera, then the HTC One M8 might be the option for you since it comes with a 5MP camera while the one on the Galaxy Golden has 1.9MP.
If you’re rather a more rear-facing camera kind of person, then the Galaxy Golden actually holds a better camera of 8MP (autofocus + dual LED flash), while the one on the One M8 has 4MP (same features).
