In this article we’re going to be doing a full benchmark and speed test between the HTC One (M8) and the Moto X 2014. Each of these are flagship phones and some of the most powerful on the market, so let’s see how they compare.
Spec wise this new second generation Moto X is powered by a Quad Core Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.5GHz, the Adreno 330GPU, and 2GB of RAM while the HTC One (M8) is also powered by the same GPU and same amount of ram, it’s just clocked at 2.3GHz rather than 2.5
Starting it off with the benchmarks the first test we’ll be doing is 3D Mark. 3DMark simulates the high intensity graphics of all the newest games and tests them on the device. In our case the Moto X 2nd Gen was able to score 19357 and the M8 scored 13292.
Moving on to Geekbench 3 which is one of the most widely respected benchmark apps, this will test the pure power of the M8 and Moto X and also the memory. The HTC One (M8) finished with a single core score of 544 and a multicore score of 1609 and the Moto X (2014) received a single core score of 970 and a multi core score of 2911.
So as you can see the HTC One (M8) and Moto X are both extremely powerful devices. If you found this helpful then be sure to share the article and watch the video benchmark comparison above.
