2.5 GHz Asian HTC One M8 wipes the floor with the US version, tops a graphics benchmark

0. phoneArena posted on 26 Mar 2014, 05:48

The difference in benchmarking scores between the 2.3 GHz US/European version of the HTC One M8, and the 2.5 GHz Asian one, turns out to be quite significant. The US/European version scores 29431 points on AnTuTu, for example, while the first benchmarks of the Asian variation are pouring in, and they clock 35964 points on the same test...

LOL.. benchmarks mean nothing. You could easily say a lot about 5422 as well. AT this point, we are talking of arbitrary numbers which mean absolutely nothing.

see thats the power of EXYNOS A15 which destroys the S801 at 2.0 ghz and that PAPASMURF says that S801 is BETTER AND IS MORE POWERFULL
what a dime a 2,5ghz vs 2,0ghz cpu


if benchmark means nothing using the s3 to s4 i felt a big diffrence in speed and graphics

from ip4s to ip5 there was a big diffrence, so how can you say it dosent, and thats coming from a wise inteligent person you

the exynos is a battery hog and has perfomance issues(stutter, lag, ect...) papasmurf is pretty well informed. besides, benchmarks mean nothing when real life usage is acually terrible

thats not to blame Exynos but to blame A7 CORTEX

so when inteli7 is more battery hog than i5 no ones complaining about drainage and power consumption, people are much enjoying it.

real life usage is terrible cause of big little not cause of a15

so what phone are you using?

are you telling me that the s4 and using the s3 there is no diffrent? antutu on s3 scores 9000 less than the s4 and people have noticed the diffrence

sad delusional you are, well your giving credit to intel i3 than not giving i5


what kind of rubbish info is that

are you telling me people who drive ferrari porsche bmw5 series and amg merc sl500 care about running out of petrol after 150 miles then need to refill, no they dont give a dam cause they have power and torque they drive those car and buy cause of power,

they sacrafice extra mileage to less mileage to feel p[ower

so thats what the diffrence is when you say battery hog there are many who dont give a piss about battery

and what 15% more drainage than s801 what its not that it wont last half a day your telling me it would last 2 hours when browsing

correct me it i'm wrong but arent the 4 a7 cores part of the chip? werent they supposed to save the battery life and help performance?ok buddy

if those a7 were not deployed and had 4xa15, lags what lags, you would open apps and other resources in an instant, no matter what you through at it, it would breeze thro.

56. true1984 (Posts: 830; Member since: 23 May 2012)

they clocked them at 1.3 to save battery life. if they clocked them higher batterylife would have been worse with a performance boost that probably wouldn't have been noticeable and if it was just the 4 a15s....
need i go on?

58. true1984 (Posts: 830; Member since: 23 May 2012)

also they have a quad core a15. its called the tegra 4, and guess what? it's a whole lot worse when it comes to battery life

How nice of you to mention my name.

First of all, the 801 is technically better since it supports LTE and is a lot more efficient on the battery. Need I say more? The difference is scores is not noticeable in day to day tasks, except in gaming. Granted the 5422 performs slightly better than the 801 (hexa core vs wuad core GPUs) but as soon as the 805 or 810 roll out, QualComm will have the major advantage. The 801, as you said, and I quote, "still running old A9," which is technically not true since it's just QualComm's own in-home design. To match the power of a true quad A15 (and also A7) is pretty damn stellar is it not?

I can easily counter your argument by saying Nvidia Denver. You'd lose instantly, but thanks for playing.

IF SCORES mean nothing to you why did you buy the note3? why didnt you buy the old note1, which is 2 years old with 2 years old specs and is slower than the note 3. if antutu is BS to you note 1 scored 10000 vs note 3 35000 are youy tellling me that when you use both you wont tell any diffrence...

I bought the Note 3 to upgrade from my S3. The 13MP camera, bigfer battery, Adreno 330GPU, full HD screen, improved S-Pen and LTE. Noe does all that sound like a worthy upgrade to you?

QualComm doesn't want to make a true A15 chip when what they're doing is working pretty damn well for them. If QualComm has the brains to design and make a true A57 64-bit chip, I'm pretty sure they're smart enough to have the capabilities to make a A15. Thanks for pointing out the A9 and A15 argument. They do that and still achieve speeds that match the A15 5422. Give credit where it's due instead of sounding like a blind hater. Go research the goal behind the Snapdragon 800/801/805 series and come back to let me know what you've learned.

Btw, stop using caps lock. No one wants to get the impression you're yelling over your keyboard.

im not hating on snapdragon, but saying s805 and a9 is outdated and slow for me, cause im a power user

quallcom can not do anything better to the a15, cause a15 runs on 9wats which almost needs a fan to cool the cpu down, unless they use 22nm process or even better18, or 14nm

qualcom has an a53 in progress not the 64bit a57

only samsung and apple have the soc right know

snapdragon relys and believes in standard typical users while apple and samsung believe in power

qualcoms aim is efficeny and less battery drainage,
exynos swift a7 is all about power

WOW no one wants to give credit to A15 but the a9 is better pathethic

snapdragon till 2014 dont and does not have the brains to make an a15 arm cortex, still a9

in home design is they took a9 and took half of a15 and mixed it up to make a overclocked a9 a15

qualcom took a15s half of infrastractre and used it on the A9 no dam wonder its not a battery hog its 4wats vs 9 wats

rd,nest so just imagine the 5422 was clocked as the same as s801 2.5ghz what would it score 44000....?

Yeah it would probably score that high, but like PapaSmurf said, battery efficiency and LTE, 2 big hitters in the processor area. Most people don't look at how amazing their processor is, they look at how the phone performs, battery life, and yet again LTE. If all of that works fine on a built-in-home A9 cortex im pretty sure that they're going to stick with the method that is cheaper and more efficient.

how slow and still underdog of exynose5422

when i drive a car ile drive a car ile drive bmw m3 not a slow s801 bmw 328

s805 is 328
a15 is bmw mpowe m3

people who drive m3 dont give a toss about petrol , these are A15 USERS

people who drive bmw328 worry about everything being ok like s805 efficent and petrol saving

There's literally no point in talking to you. Point is - Snapdragon 801 is just as fast as the 5422.

thats true s801 has an all in one chip which costs much less than fine EXYNOS

s801 soc 30dollars
E5422 30 DOLLARS plus they need to buy 4gLTE broadcomm chip which is 15 dollars

i"m not arguing but disputing, it"s a discussion forum where you learn from other"s idear and knowledge.

i"m typing from a laptop where you have to press shift this that there and here, it"s time consuming.

Unlike if i type from the N3 it"s faster.

Benchmarks mean nothing but the iPad Air crushing the crap out of the iPhone 5s despite having a higher than 1080p screen shows how much a .2 ghz increase can improve performance.

Besides, if the score is that different, generally it means something....

My career tell me i must go for m8 cus htc devices have a better optomize than sony and samy product..
Primume feel is first reason that i pick up a phone..
I have both xperia z and one and sure i tell u one faar better than z..
Z2is great but sony 's phone almost isnt same that one we see in advertise and in work has a less performance that i expected..
Specially in ui i dont think any phone come to near to sense 6 with most beautiful and charismatic usage.

I believe Benchmarks doesn't really show a devices performance. Performance should always be judged on the basis of real time usage. Benchmarks can be cheated and won but that doesn't mean that the device is the best. The Nexus 5 scores low on benchmarks but in real life conditions it can put the competitors in shame.
just me 2 cents. No offence to anyone.
