HTC One M9 performance benchmarks: Snapdragon 810 against Apple A8, Exynos 7420, and the rest


The HTC One M9 features Qualcomm's newest Snapdragon 810 system chip. It's one of the most powerful systems on a chip available right now, but this does not mean that it does not have some solid competition. This time around Samsung seems to have gone with its own Exynos octa-core solution in the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, and we already know that Apple is using its own  Apple A8 with custom Cyclone CPU cores in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

How does the new Snapdragon 810 compare against those two? And how much of an improvement is it compared to the earlier versions of Snapdragon seen in the One M8 and Galaxy S5?

We've managed to run some benchmarks to test both the CPU and GPU performance of the One M9, and bring you the numbers right below. It's worth noticing that - despite all the progress with Snapdragon 810 - Apple still has the lead in the important area of single-core CPU performance. In fact, the difference between the iPhone 6 and the One M9 is quite staggering, and not in favor of the Snapdragon 810 on the HTC phone. Samsung with its newest Exynos is actually the only chip that really stands up to it (the iPhone 6 still scores better, but the results are at least close).

Turn over to multi-core performance, though, a feature used by much less (but more demanding) apps, we see that the Samsung Galaxy S6 is the leader here with its Exynos 7420 system chip, while the Snadpragon 810 comes as a runner-up, but not really all that close.

Finally, though, GPU performance and gaming is where the HTC One M9 truly excels. HTC has decided to use a 1080 x 1920-pixel resolution for the screen of the M9, rather than the trendy Quad HD resolution, and this results in some stellar gaming performance. The One M9 is really the Android phone gamers would be most pleased with. Take a look at the scores right below.
