Galaxy S5 vs HTC One (M8) vs Note 3 vs LG G2 benchmark comparison (video)
posted by Daniel P. / Apr 22, 2014, 9:42 AM
As you can see in the video below, when it comes to general benchmark tests, the results of the two Snapdragon 801-laden handsets are actually comparable with the Note 3. Granted, the Galaxy S5 outscores the rest of the quintet most of the time, but its difference with the One (M8) and Note 3 is not that large, and in the Vellamo browser test it even scored unimpressively.
When it comes to pure graphics prowess, however, the Adreno 330 GPU in Snapdragon 801 is clocked almost 30% higher than the same GPU in Snapdragon 800, with the respective gain in performance. In the T-Rex Offscreen test the One (M8) and Galaxy S5 outscored the Note 3 and the rest by a significant margin, precisely on account of the faster graphics chip.
In the end, all handsets, with the exception of the Nexus 5, performed very well, and the Note 3 held its own against the S5 and One (M8) in the general benchmark tests. When it comes to graphics rendering, however, the new Snapdragon 801 will clearly give you an edge in heavy 3D gaming, if that's your thing.

It's realy like a screen test

I cannot feel the difference in performance in any of the current flagships I have tested. Almost all feels performing at same speed... in a real life scenario, its very difficult to feel any difference... whereas, I can feel the difference between displays, sound quality and camera results

Snapdragon 800 -> Snapdragon 801 -> Snapdragon 805 trends: 1) CPU performance has stagnated for all practical purposes. 2) GPU performance and power efficiency continue to grow just like you'd expect. Conclusion: ARMv8 can't come soon enough. We need it to improve performance further.

"In the end, all handsets, with the exception of the Nexus 5, performed very well" Thats bcoz the rest of the OEM are cheating...

Since Kitkat Samsung phones does not use benchmark boosters anymore. Please get ur facts right. Moreover, whats the problem of running processors at their peak limit? I believe that's the reason what benchmarks are made for. (Testing the limits of their respective hardware)

Who knows Samsung might have found some other way to boost their scores and in real life Nexus phones are far better than Note 3... I found some lag in my friends Note 3 while my Nexus 5 doesn't even know what that means...

I get lag in my Note 3 more than I thought I would. Of course the note3 has not been my buddy by any means. I am on my third one, it still does random stuff. Still like it though but it is not without faults like every phone I have owned including my more beloved wp's

and you said last time snapdragon s800.801,805 are diffrent chip, and here nd other websites says its the same chip but clocked higher, also you say these socs are A15 when there not cause even there new chips are based on a53 which is still a a9 cortex when Samsung Exynos and T4 are leading well ahead. i know your a snapdragon fan but im not, im a Exynos a15 fan. Snapdragon dont even have a a15 cpu yet still relying on 3years modified chip.

@ CyberFalcon "Who knows Samsung might have found some other way to boost their scores" Who knows you are may be pedofile , but I wouldn't mention it unless I have proves. By the way , even iAnand said that it was ALL THE OEM's doing it, Why you mention only Samsung ???? Even M8 do it NOW

That's because the Nexus 5 doesn't have dalvik optimizations. There was a dalvik patch that came out for the moto x a little while ago, and people flashed it on their nexus 5's and scored more than the Note 3 in Antutu. It's all about optimizations. I'm sure when ART is introduced as the default runtime, the Nexus 5 will score better, even though numbers don't matter since it already performs better than any galaxy device, while being on par with the m8.

Some people care so much about benchmarks it's not funny anymore. All these phones are great performers. The only difference between them are some look,feel and have better features than others. Aside that they are all practically the same. Android is now IOS or Apple. It's had to tell the speed difference between iPhone 5 and 5s. That's what's happening to android now.

M8 looks so bad in my opinion, they should leave physical buttons.

People still use benchmarks? Real life experience > numbers
