2.5 GHz One M8 beats the pants off Galaxy S5, Xperia Z2 and G Pro 2 in benchmarks

Galaxy S5, which has the same 2.5 GHz chipset, and the Sony Xperia Z2 with its 2.3 GHz MSM8974-AB model. The new LG G Pro 2 phablet, and its previous-gen Snapdragon 800 processor, have also been included for a good measure. As you can see in the slideshow below, the 2.5 GHz One M8 model for Asia produced scores that are better than any other flagships in the spring crop, even beating the Galaxy S5 by a small margin. That makes it the most powerful Android phone so far, though you'd have to live in Asia, or do the importing routine, if you want to have it.We'll skip the boring theoretical part, and go straight to the scores from the most popular synthetic benchmarking apps for Android. The Asian HTC One M8 has been pitted against the

With Galaxy S5, Samsung will enter declining era. Samsung no more.

If or not Samsung fan, but honestly, what does that all new ONE m8 to offer...i dont care benchmarks....M8 is even worse when we saw its expectations to be skyhigh-end device...its just FLOP - even that bulls***t camera is flop like it was on the first ONE. Bulky 5" incher, crappy camera...high price...

I find it funny that the new HTC one (m8) will beat the pants off the new Samsung S5. Especially since the new S5 is using faster DDR3 ram vs the new HTC one is still using older and slower DDR2 ram. I guess we will have to see when both are available to the public.

I don't understand this cheating thing. If you want to know the general performance, use the phone. If you want to see the peak theoretical performance, run a benchmark. This cheating thing is ridiculous. If the phone can run an app/benchmark that high, then that is fair. How is that cheating? They could theoretical program any app to run that powerful, after all a benchmark app is still an app.... Also who is to say Apple and Microsoft don't do this as well? The only way we know about this benchmark behavior is because Android is open enough for us to test these things. So why the media chooses to punish Android for being and open and champion Apple for being discreet is beyond me.

Er... you realize that this is specifically the Asian iteration of the M8, right? The NA and European version is highly unlikely to best the S5 in terms of benchmarks. (Not that the benchmarks really mean anything, but I digress...)

How is it a flop? The battery lasts longer than the G2 (which has the fancy new battery setup), Its killing in benchmarks, which means performance is great, Sense 6 is VERY Sexy (i flashed it on my DNA yesterday.....its niiiiccceee) and uniform now...and actually pretty close to stock which is why i like it, and untill you hold one don't judge it (you may have, idk), i think it feels great in hand just like all of HTC's phones. I will say the camera is a disappointment, but that's about all i can say i'm sad on about this devices. So for people who don't care about having THE BEST pictures, its perfect

Yes they do ! http://www.phonearena.com/news
...and as far as I know only Samsung has rectified their mistake unlike other OEMs.

the last time the galaxy note 3 outperformed the lg g2 despite having i higher clocked cpu and a higher ram they started and investigation on the out come so how come the HTC One out performes the s5 with the same spec atleast samsung is not running in the spec war again this year

Samsung is reported to remove cheat code in benchmark, HTC hasn't.
