HTC 10 Performance Review: A Snapdragon 820 Powered Flagship

HTC 10 Browsing And Javascript Tests

First we'll take a look at how HTC's 10 compares to other smartphones and processing engines by examining a few benchmarks that are currently available on the Web or in the Google Play Store. 

Out of the gate, let’s take a look at the JetStream JavaScript benchmark, which now replaces SunSpider in our suite of browsing tests. According to the JetStream website: JetStream is a JavaScript benchmark suite focused on the most advanced web applications. Bigger scores are better.

The HTC 10 edged out in front of Samsung's latest devices in the Jetstream benchmark, by the smallest of margins, but trailed the iPhone 6s Plus and the Mate 8.

Rightware's BrowserMark test also ranks performance of modern mobile web browsers, along with device processing engines, in terms of how well they handle web page loading, screen resizing, and various web graphics rendering workloads.


All of the latest flagship smartphones perform within 10% or so of each other in Browsermark, though in a reversal from the Jetstream results, the HTC 10 trailed the Samsung Galaxy S7's here.
