Wide range of benchmarks show HTC M8 for Windows the fastest, Snapdragon 400 as fast as Snapdragon S4

Btekt have run a wide series of benchmarks on the Nokia Lumia 735, 830, 930, 1020, 1520 and HTC One M8 for Windows Phone and have come up with some pretty interesting results.

The handsets were tested using the Antutu, Basemark OS II, Pi Benchmark, Relative Benchmark, Browsermark and Sunspider tests and while the advantage of running a Snapdragon 800 processor was clear, the most interesting result from the test was that the SnapDragon S4 was in many ways comparable with the new Snapdragon 400 processors, meaning one should not choose a newer midrange device over an older dual-core handset simple for performance reasons, and that it would be pointless to upgrade for performance reasons and buy a Snapdragon 400 device.

On the other hand the HTC M8 for Windows with its Snapdragon 801 processr was a consistently good performer, which is another string in the box of the versatile handset.
