Galaxy S5 vs HTC One (M8) vs Note 3 vs LG G2 benchmark comparison (video)

0. phoneArena 22 Apr 2014, 09:42 posted on

The Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One (M8) both sport a Snapdragon 801 CPU and 2 GB of RAM, so we decided to pit their processing chops against the Note 3, which has a Snapdragon 800 CPU, but houses 3 GB of RAM. In addition, we are throwing in last year's finest LG G2, and its offspring Google Nexus 5...

And a lot of people who used to poopoo benchmarks before the 5s suddenly found them extremely important. LOL.

Works both sides it seems. Although a portion of one side got caught cheating. LOL.

It wasn't limited to benchmarks. Suddenly pixel density didn't matter, market share became meaningless, number of apps turned into a non issue, display accuracy was rendered unimportant, specs (well, some specs like 64 bit) shot to the top of the list of must haves...

You got worked up from that? You must be the overly sensitive type. Very little of what I post on forums like this is in a worked up state of mind. I have real problems in the real world that I actually worry over, like a very sick daughter who refuses to get the help she needs. That I get worked up over.

If your daughter is a minor and in your care, make her/take her to get the care she needs as you have a right to, regardless of what her opinion is.

Now, if she is grown, then yes, you have a right to be as worked up as you want to be, especially if you have taught her better.

I have two daughters, one grown and moved out and another that is still a minor that lives with us. The grown one has had me and my wife worked up over her not handling sickness properly on many occasions. Once, I was so worked up and having exhausted all I could say and do to my now grown child, I found myself quoting Ivan Drago by saying "If she dies....she dies" NOW THAT IS WORKED UP!!!!" She's grown and on her own now, we can't force her to do anything.

Yes, real life and things more important than smartphones can get a person truly worked up.

With all of that said, I hope that your daughter gets the help she needs and gets well soon.

She is 22. When I say sick, I'm talking bulimia, not anything like cancer. She can't see what she's doing to herself. Believe me, if she were a minor she would be in a treatment center. I told her I'd rather she hated me for another 60-70 years for committing her somewhere like that than love me for 5 years and die.

Thanks for the well wishes. I hope she gets better, but we recently had to tell her to move out because it was tearing the family apart, and she refused to follow any of the house rules. It was awful, but we have a 12 year old son and since she won't voluntarily get better, we don't want him exposed to the turmoil in the house anymore.

Something is bizarre. Look at the perform (in real world) of Nexus 5 and look at these results. Something is very wrong.

Ignore benchmarks, it's less confusing that way.

The Nexus 5 doesn't include a few lines of code that make it perform well on benchmark tests. In the real world, it outperforms everything else. PhoneArena needs to research before writing.

The Mate is sick, I still love my S4 but the next iterations will be something I can't ignore.

The HTC One M8 looks terrible with the buttons in the screen... it looses all the beauty of the M7...
My next phone will never be an Iphone... xD

The stock Nexus 5 doesn't have all of the 'optimizations' to run synthetic benchmarks. When added, the Nexus 5 benchmarks just like the LG G2.

Even so, the Nexus 5 is the smoothest Android phone out there.

It really is a smooth running phone - just wish it was a big screen, like my Coolpad...

It's interesting that HTC One M8 scored better than the Samsung Galaxy S5 in most benchmark tests, despite having a slightly lower CPUC clock speed -- 2.3 GHz vs. 2.5 GHz, respectively.

This shows that HTC One M8 has better build quality than the Samsung Galaxy S5 not only on the outside but also on the inside -- better motherboard design etc.
