Different benchmark scores for the HTC One raise questions
Just a few days ago we heard about the HTC One's Asian version crushing down competitors in the AnTuTu 4 benchmark with a 2.5GHz MSM8974AC Snapdragon 801 processor. But unfortunately for the the HTC One, this acheivement hasnt lasted for a very long time and as it appears, the phone might have cheated.
The results from the AnTuTu X have raised a couple of eyebrows and has brought suspicion because this version of the AnTuTu X has been designed specifically to prevent devices from cheating. ePrice was the first to reveal the results of the so called beastly Asian HTC One and then when it ran the AnTuTu X on the phone, the results came out to be different and the HTC One wasnt the hero after all. AnTuTu 4 and AnTuTu X was run for the Samsung Galaxy S5, LG G Pro 2 and Sony Xperia Z2 alongside the HTC One (M8) and all these phones got similar scores on the benchmark except for the HTC One. There was a surprising difference of over 10,000 points.
But before we start judging the phone altogether, it is important to understand that this difference in scores is not necessarily a consequence of cheating. It is possible that the AnTuTu X benchmark could be scoring the phone’s hardware (read memory and RAM, in addition to the CPU) differently.
