Funky metrics: HTC One (M8) has the fastest 46ms phone display touch response time so far
posted by Daniel P. / Apr 08, 2014, 2:28 AM
Now here's a metric that we bet didn't occur to you when using your phone or tablet in a daily basis - display touch response time. This is rarely, if ever, reported by manufacturers, unless they want to brag with it, and only sporadically mentioned in reviews, in those times when the screen fails to register touch quickly, to the point of annoyance.
HTC One (M8), and it's 46ms, fastest than all phones measured so far! To put this in perspective, out of the newer devices, the Note 3 clocks in at 67ms, the LG G2 at 110ms, and the Apple iPhone 5/5S register 75ms. Thus, in addition to a bright and vivid 1080p display, the HTC One (M8) seemingly offers very fast touch response times, too. We'll check back when the Galaxy S5 and Xperia Z2 screens get measured to see who's boss in that department out of the three Android juggernauts for this spring. All devices are still far from the ideal 1-20ms touch latency that Microsoft Research recommends, but we are apparently getting there, and it should be a matter of time until our smartphones break that threshold, too.Fortunately we have the first touch latency measure for a spring flagship now, taken on the
- Display 5.0" 1080 x 1920 pixels
- Camera 4 MP / 5 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 801, Quad-core, 2300 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 2600 mAh(20h 3G talk time)

In graph there is no HTC One (M8) just last year HTC One is mentioned. What's wrong with you, are you trying to cheat reader or i missed something, Please let me know. • Reply • Share › Avatar Jonathan Feist Amit Kumar Singh • 17 hours ago Hey Amit Kumar Singh, the graph is a little bit older, the guys that run the tests have not provided an updated graph, but they did provide the new numbers. Sorry for the confusion. • Reply • Share › Avatar Ruben Alamina Jonathan Feist • 17 hours ago You should remove the graph as it doesn't display the newer devices. Or at least a foot note on the image should clarify that the data shown is for previous tests as is not current to avoid reader confusion.

When you read the whole article they do not cheat anyone this time - 1. Article says - "All of the older devices measured in the chart below" 2. You can read about " Apple iPhone 5/5S register 75ms " - which is on top of the old table. 3. Then they write "... HTC One (M8), and it's 46ms! " - means that M8 tops the chart. So read and do not watch just pictures!!!

Trust me over responsive screen is not ideal to use. I had a bad experience with one lg device(probably g pro). When you touch a icon it loses the accuracy and opens the wrong app.

Who said it was over responsive? It's simply more responsive. By the way how are you enjoying your N7? Great little tablet

Ok Shamesung fanboy, it impress me how you always mention 4mp in your every sh!tty post. The only truth is the same old cheap shamesung a.k.a band-aid design with useless gimmicks and lagged touchwiz. Right, truth hurts.

Hyper-responsive screens are only good for certain types of users....I myself hate it...FASTER = BETTER?...apparently not

This is good news to me. I had no idea about the Note 3 being that responsive. And the M8? Wow! It's good to see there are now phones more responsive than iPhones. The way I could always tell that iPhones were far more responsive than Android phones was with my simple own test: Download a drum app and see if I could keep a nice steady beat. With iPhones it was always easy to do (apart from their screens being to small). I will be getting the S5 and probably the M8. I wonder how the S5 will compare in terms of screen response.
