Benchmarks have shown HTC One M8 features with unparalleled performance when compared to Apple iPhone 5S, Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z1. But its killing performance goes unimpressive under browser testing by Browsermark.
According to Basemark OS II benchmarking test, HTC One M8 wins the competition with its unmatched and killer performance in overall processing. HTC One M8 currently ranks number one, beating all other brands.
HTC One M8 wins with 1071.37 ranking it first followed by ASUS PadFone Infinity 2 A86 with 1070.26. LG Nexus did not even make it to the top three and landed at fourth place with 1034.94 points. iPhone 5S is at fifth place with 1019.03, Galaxy S5 at seventh with 986.18 and Xperia Z1 on the eight with 984.16.
HTC One M8 sports 2.3 GHz of quad-core Krait 400 Qualcomm Snapdraon 801 processor which is slightly lower than Galaxy S5's 2.5 GHz processor and only a fraction higher than Xperia Z1 2.26 GHz processor. iPhone 5S 64-bit processor chipset may not be enough since HTC One M8 features quad-core.
Under the gaming section of Basemark X, HTC One M8 wins with 26328.33 points followed by Nokia 1520 at second place and Samsung Galaxy S5 on the third spot. Sony Xperia Z1 follows on the fifth spot while Apple iPhone 5S landed too far at 18th place.
It is astonishing that HTC used the same type of graphic chipset by other manufacturers on M8. Lumia 1520, Galaxy S5 and Xperia Z1 are all using Adreno 330 - same with HTC One M8 - but shows optimized software compared to other brands. iPhone 5S sports Apple's own A7 graphics processing unit for gaming and graphics rendering.
If HTC One M8 wins on both overall performance and gaming experience, Apple beats the Android flagship smartphone on the browser test from Browsermark. iPhone 5S scored 3621.12 at number one followed by Galaxy S5 G900V with 3546.70 and Galaxy S5 G900F with 3303.88. HTC One M8 ranked at number seven with 3206.65, defeated by Nexus 5, Galaxy Note 3 AT&T and Xperia Z1 on browsing performance.
HTC did a great job on maximizing the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 to sport constant performance level on overall functions and gaming experience.
