How to enable High Performance Mode on the HTC One (M8), and why you may not really want to

0. phoneArena 03 Apr 2014, 06:42 posted on

In this post we'll teach you how to unleash that extra bit of silicon muscle known as High Performance Mode on the HTC One (M8). It will maximize the Snapdragon 801's CPU performance and you might gain a little bit of speed boost in some use cases. Or you might get nothing more than excessive battery drain...

I'd agree with you if they only activated it while benchmarks were running. But they give you the option to enable it anytime, which means you can get that performance out of the phone if you really need it. Lets consider it a "Feature" lol

Arcording to Anandtech, this "feature" is activated with benchmark tests even when you try to turn off in the developer option.
No way to turn off with benchmark!!!

Yeah because if it isnt any use to you it must be useless. By that same logic you arent any use to me so you must be a useless person

That's not logic. That's just stupidity. He was useful in the fact that he allowed you to reply to his post and in doing so, allowed to you to talk about your so called "logic"

Huh, so you can enable ART with Sense 6. That's pretty cool actually, running ART for about 4 months now on my Nexus 5 and I can never go back to a dalvik-only device.

In the 8th picture, after the warning note, it says "do not ask me again"

Definitely a Taiwanese device because that doesn't even make SENSE
