HTC Butterfly S faster than HTC One, benchmarks confirm

HTC Butterfly S faster than HTC One, benchmarks confirm
The HTC One isn't the company's fastest smartphone anymore, or at least not when it comes to raw processing power. That title now belongs to the HTC Butterfly S, according to the benchmark results embedded below as proof. 

How is that possible, you ask? Well, both smartphones do come equipped with the very same chip, namely a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600. However, the HTC Butterfly S has its silicon clocked at a slightly higher frequency – 1.9GHz, vs the HTC One and its 1.7GHz CPU. That's why the Butterfly S benchmarks constantly show a slightly higher score. 

So is the HTC Butterfly S now the company's flagship? Perhaps, but it really depends on how you look at it. Power users would surely feel that way since the Butterfly S is faster, at least theoretically. It also packs a massive battery with a capacity of 3200mAh, so it is likely to last much longer than the HTC One on a single charge. On the Other hand, the HTC One is, as many would agree, prettier with its slim and sleek metal body. Besides, a casual user probably wouldn't really notice any difference in the way these two smartphones perform in real life.

So yeah, the HTC Butterfly S is slightly faster than the HTC One, but this doesn't mean that the latter is now suddenly any less attractive of a handset. Go take a look at the benchmarks below if you're interested in how much of a lead the Butterfly S really has.

I know how useful this benchmark test is, but I'm totally sick when people compare phone with benchmark.

I have S3 and yes other phone's got higher benchmark compared to mine, but the question is. Can they run an app on play store that I can't run on my old s3?.. I say No..
Benchmark! Benchmark!...

The HTC One was a great flagship in it's time. Make way for the next generation!

Would have been faster if they'd use snapdragon 800

Butterfly S actually would have been an awesome competitor if it used s800, not because s600 is by any means slow, but because every flagship from every oem cut off the s600 for their next models being released at the same time

Why even bother to post such an obvious comment?

You pretty much just said, "it would have been faster if they'd used a faster processor."

Well, no sh*t, Sherlock!

It was me who said s4 pro is already fast enough for me. Btw, I am just saying butterfly s would have had a higher benchmark if it used 800

butterfly is not a new flagshio. Rather different version of one for different markets. Htc one was great in its time?? Wtf?? How long ago was it released?
Let´s not be so rushy. It´s still a fresh and capable device. There will be always sth newer and better behind the corner but it doesn´t means that the current ones are obsolete.

I don't see HTC One in the above benchmark picture (1st picture)...
There are only 'Your Device' and 'HTC One X'
and HTC One X is not HTC One, right?
HTC One X is their last year flagship.

'Your device" on the left is the HTC Butterfly S, the one the right is the HTC One :).

Hardly made any difference!
Just clocked 200Ghz extra.
They should've gone for the S800, that would've made a big difference!

Looks like a winner, but HTC needs to lower their pricing a bit.

Wait for it. Before this year ends, another hero phone will be introduced by htc that will have s800 and like what happened to htc butterfly, it will only be shadowed by the 2014 flagship. Htc's being a little b*tch again. Then after a year of release, these phone won't be updated again. Poor after sales services htc.

A new and top speced hero phone might be just what they need right now! but if they do bring out a new hero, they better advertise the hell out of it and they better get on the shelves fast......ALSO they will have to make sure they dont "lack" in anything regarding camera quality, battery, storage etc etc..... they need a "hero" phone right about now if you know what I mean

The label on the chart itself says HTC One X, not HTC One.

No real life difference between them performance wise.

I think of it like the galaxy s series and the note series. HTC is doing the same with the butterfly offering an option for a bigger screen phone with a little more features. I say the butterfly series is doing great for HTC.
