Spec showdown: HTC One M8 for Windows vs. Nokia Lumia 1520 vs. Nokia Lumia Icon

It's been two years since HTC made a Windows Phone, but now the company is back with the best phone it has to offer, the flagship HTC One M8. This time, the phone is running Windows Phone 8.1, but still includes well-known HTC features, including Blinkfeed.
This high-end device sports the same aluminum chassis you'll find on the Android One M8, the same dual camera lens on the back, and the same powerful specs under the hood. The only difference is the the phone is running the Windows Phone OS instead of Android.
HTC is coming back to a market that's been dominated by Nokia for the last several years. The HTC One M8 Windows Phone is going to have compete with the high-end Lumias, such as the Icon and 1520. All three phones are around the same size (though the 1520 is more phablet than phone) and they all sport high-end processors, cameras, and other hardware features.
If you're in the market for a Windows Phone, the HTC One M8, Lumia Icon, and Lumia 1520 are all great choices. It really comes down to which carrier you have, and which extra features are important you. Check out the chart below to see how the three phone's specs compare, and shout out in the comments which phone fits the bill for you.
