Take a look at us testing the HTC One at MWC: more benchmarks

The HTC One got unveiled just before Mobile World Congress and it impressed us with its bold decision to use a wide-angle camera with larger pixels and a smaller megapixel count, but it had one more ace up its sleeve - the new blazing fast Snapdragon 600 chip by Qualcomm.

Qualcomm itself says the Snapdragon 600 is up to 40% faster than its current S4 Pro and we finally got to test that claim with the One at MWC.

And we can say it is indeed blazing fast. The HTC One scored a whopping 12,000+ on Quadrant and a total of more than 22,000 on AnTuTu.

While Qualcomm just yesterday detailed its upcoming Snapdragon 800 we don’t expect to see the chip until around the middle of the year.

HTC has always produced "georgeos" looking phones but as everything in life, good looks usually compensates for other features. Let's take women for example, try striking up an intelligent conversation with a beautiful woman and after a while, you'll soon determine that there's nothing of value or quality inside; only emptiness, hollow. Similarly, this is the case with HTC phones.

I agree except with the they always produce gorgeous phones part. In fact, I think their design has always been too gaudy and not elegant enough.

Sounds like you have a pretty negative impression of beautiful women. I feel sorry for you and whatever horrible past experiences you've had that leads you to believe something as misogynistic and degrading as what you just said. I also feel sorry for you because, judging by your profile, you have an HTC phone, and you clearly think they are hollow and worthless.

The grand memo has the Qualcomm 800 and the Optimus G pro and Asus padfone infinity has the Qualcomm 600 as well. The Grand memo should in theory perform much better with the lower resolution, beefier SOC, and lighter skin. While the Padfone infinity should perform better due to the closer to stock Android skin. Hardly the king.

Which is awesome. Although the Snapdragon 800 isn't out yet. The battle isn't decided yet.

Battle is never decided these days the.. very 3 months some phone will be better than others... DNA was best from Nov till date, as xperia z and HTC one are not out yet.. when HTC one comes it wil be the best for 2 months as galaxy s4 will come out.... So better buy then wait... I own DNA from 24th Nov..If i would have waited... I would not have owned phone which is best for atleast 3 months

Except the GS2 dominated for an entire year and the GS3 dominated until the Optimus G came out.

Qualcomm 800 by the end of March according to ZTE, although their is confusion about the actual specs. We will see.

I think tegra will remain not as power efficient as the snapdragon no matter what.

Why you shouldn't compare its camera against Lumia 920!!

5. amansingal14

because with portico update on, there is no comparison between the two cameraphones...

I agree. Samsung has decided to announce the S4 on the 15th, one day after the official release of the HTC One. Smart move.

ok good cus samsung hardly worry about this one.!! one is king.

I think you mean one day before and not after. Although HTC is probably scrambling to move up the release to try and sell as many as they can before the GS4 announcement. Which will lead to the typical HTC quality control issues and make them burn more bridges than they already have with their customers. And the HTC cycle downwards continues.

Lets see who copies the ultrapixel camera, frontal stereo speakers, zoe features and the rugged construction. I guess will see that very soon, in less than a month.

Um, no one is going to copy that crap. No one except HTC would add a HUGE bezel to the front just to add an extra speaker on a device where mono is perfectly fine. Tablet maybe but not a phone. In fact, Samsung already does this with tablets. Also, Aluminum is not really rugged at all.

its fast true.........but why we shouldn't wait until another similar level phones to come up.........and then compare...

They could have done a Optimus G pro, Grand Memo, HTC One, and Padfone Infinity face off at the show. They all have 2gb of ram and the Qualcomm 600 and up.

1080/1776 pixels?So it is not FHD?

27. Taters

Posts: 6474; Member since: Jan 28, 2013

FHD is 1900 x 1200 I believe, so no, not quite there yet on phones.
