Benchmark score puts the all new HTC One ahead of the competition

Tout-Nouveau-HTC-One-2014-M8-01

Leaked pictures of the all new HTC One make it easy to assume that the device will be powered the a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chip. A new image shows the device’s AnTuTu Benchmark results screen with a score that’s 5-10% higher than the results posted by the Sony Xperia Z2 and Samsung Galaxy S5. While the performance is higher than other devices running the Snapdragon 801 chip, HTC has been known to increase hardware performance to improve its scores during benchmark tests.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chip is slightly faster than last year’s Snapdragon 800, but the performance increase is put into perspective when compared to the Snapdragon 600 that powered the 2013 HTC One. If the AnTuTu score of 37,000 is accurate, the all new HTC One will outperform the 2013 HTC One by more than 35%. Benchmark scores do a good job highlighting peak performance, but unfortunately  the numbers don’t give us insight into how the device will perform day-to-day.

Are benchmark scores an important factor when you’re shopping for a new device?

    Not much anymore. Like traditional computers 5 years ago, smartphones have reached the point where their performance at typical tasks is more than sufficient for a smooth, pleasant experience. I’d much rather see the big manufacturers work on squeezing out longer battery life with the same performance than better performance with the same battery life.

      I completely agree. I would love for my G2 to get the battery life that my wife’s iPhone 5s gets. Not sure if its possible with all the multitasking that Android does compared to iOS but I have to say I find it amazing how long her battery lasts when the battery of the iPhone 5s is about half the size of the G2.

      • Roberto

        You mean with a screen half the size. And if you look at the biggest drain on your battery, 99 times out of a hundred it’s the screen.

        I thought G2′s battery was supposed to be good? My phone just broke today, so I’m debating between G2 and HTC One.

        • Phil A Shio

          It is good, he might have some weird wakelock trigger or a faulty battery because the iPhone 5s doesn’t get better battery life. Either that or he’s a heavy user while his wife is a light user which again doesn’t mean jack when it comes to fair comparisons. I say go for the G2, you won’t regret it. There’s a reason the battery life is praised, it will last much longer than the One.

    Samsung is the only companies that does does it.

    • Steve

      Samsung new code doesnt have it where it runs harder and faster during benchmark tests. But I wonder if that’s exactly what htc did, make the phone run better during benchmarch

  • June

    mobile benchmarks are a joke

  • Steve

    Oh only Samsung has got caught?, Lg G2 and Htc one abd many other phones have the same lies when it comes to benchmark. But it’s amazing the Htc fans only mention Samsung. Truly hypocrisy. Atleast it has been proven to been removed by Samsung with kit kat update and so far Samsung only has priven so

  • Mayur

    When its comes about Samsung people find tiny mistakes and keep debating on it which they just over look on htc counter parts , Am I right Samsung Haters ?
    Such jealousy much discrimination so fail wow.
