HTC One 2014 tops Basemark OS II and X benchmarks, now listed as the best gaming phone
Some 24 hours are what stand between us and the official HTC event that will see the One 2014 unveiled, but Rightware, the company behind a number of popular benchmarking suites, has already awarded the company's premier product the king of gaming. At least according to its own scoring algorithms.

With the rather abstract figure of 26328 points in Basemark X, the HTC One 2014 has just dethroned the previous gaming champ -- the Nokia Lumia 1520 -- and still commands a sizable lead on the Samsung Galaxy S5. Based on the Unity game engine, Basemark X attempts to simulate a real-world environment which is then used to benchmark different devices. 

The new One scored as splendidly on the Basemark OS IIwhich is a sort of an all-in-one benchmarking suite, attempting to gauge the overall performance of a device. Somewhat alike to what AnTuTu does, Basemark OS II rates overall system performance, along with memory, web, and graphics. With a score of 1071, the One 2014 got the #1 spot, and now sits within an inch of the previous record-holder, the Asus PadFone Infinity 2. As for browsing, the upcoming flagship ranked 7th.

Of course, synthetic benchmarks are only part of the story, but this sure is a good start for the new One.

Lumia being the "game champ" is hard enough to believe, but seriously enough with the pre launch stuff it actually comes out tomorrow.

Yeah we'll see how it performs in real-world usage, and how long the battery lasts. I still love my G2, so I doubt I'll get the itch to switch because of benchmarks.

HTC one already fluid, and now looks like even more fluid. I love Nokia, Sony, Motorola, and HTC.

Good job HTC! All New One is great! BTW how come that Z1 benchmarked higher than Z2? Or at least Z2 isn't in lists but Z1 is...

just an overclocked gpu, i think they clocked it up by 100mhz so the gpu is clocked at 670mhz than standard 550mhz, just like the s4 which has a smart programing that when it detects playing games it overclocks to 667 mhz

It doesn't say anything about the 2.1 mp camera. There should be a legit reason why the phone (160g) is 11% heavier.

It's just one phone test. Wait until people buy and optimize their own phone's performance with the same exact chipsets for higher scores. This says nothing about the overall performance of the phone itself in comparison to others.

Yes, but PA just loves article like this... It's something to write about on a slow day. Beside, half of people still care about benchmark score instead of real end user experience

Yet the S5 will perform in almost every single area that counts the best. But don't worry, your subjective opinion of how the HTC One looks better certainly counts towards the overall factual assessment, right?

The importance of factual assessments is nothing more than a subjective opinion.

is owning the fastest phone on earth makes you a hero, famous, popular, rich or smart? do you really need a superfast phone? couldn't you live if your phone is just a mediocore one?

While I agree with your statement. If this were LG, Samsung or Apple, that question wouldn't be posed. Instead, it's fanboys would say how this is the "best" phone of the year and the comment section would have easily be at 60 comments by now.

But will it blend? Kidding, just hope the 4.1MP camera leaks turn out not to be true.

any apple iphone in my eyes easy beats any other phones with ergonomics and looks period. but when i unlock my phone i prefer to see what i want, so there comes android, all the possibilities to make my phone UI look how i want it.
