Keeping a smartphone like the HTC One M8 running as smoothly as possible is no easy feat. Users demand a slick and lag-free user experience, and even a fraction of delay can aggravate them.
Thankfully, the new HTC One M8 comes with the latest quad core Snapdragon 801 processor running at 2.3GHz and bundled with 2GB RAM. The updated processor makes a world of a difference, with apps opening and closing flawlessly, and multitasking becoming incredibly seamless. We ran AnTuTu Benchmark X on the HTC One M8 as well as on the original HTC One, to see just how the new processor compares to the previous model. Below are the results:
