HTC One Smartphone Review: Android Empowered

Performance: CPU and Browser

Next, we'll take a look at how the HTC One compares to other smartphones by examining a few benchmarks that are currently available in the Android Marketplace.

The HTC One out performed all other smartphones in the Linpack tests by a good margin, including the similarly spec'ed Samsung Galaxy S 4.


In the SunSpider JavaScript benchmark, the HTC One put up a great score and earned the sixth spot in our chart. We used the stock browser for the SunSpider and Rightware BrowserMark tests since it reported higher scores. Google Chrome is also available on the HTC One.

The Rightware BrowserMark benchmark evaluates the web browsing and browser performance of a device. The Rightware test shows a similar result as the SunSpider JavaScript benchmark where the HTC One earned fifth place in comparison to other phones we’ve reviewed.
