Samsung Galaxy S6, HTC One M9 and iPhone 6 Fight It Out in Benchmarks

One of the world’s biggest tech conventions is unfolding in Barcelona as we speak, so you probably heard that two of the most highly anticipated handsets this spring, the HTC One M9 and Samsung Galaxy S6, already made a debut.

The One M9 is powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 810 platform, while the Galaxy S6 draws life from the company’s own Exynos 7420 chipset. While we have seen the two chips appear in benchmarks before, scoring in a similar fashion, the folks at Computer Base have managed to pit the chip inside the HTC flagship against the one in the new Samsung phone via the cross-platform GeekBench. The chips powering these phones were also compared against other processors living in others flagships like the iPhone 6, Nexus 5 and Nexus 9.

In the multi-core test, the octa-core Exynos 7420 takes the number one position by scoring 4,547 points, while the Snapdragon 810 only manages to grab 3,959 points. Coming in at number three is the NVIDIA Tegra K1 Denver inside the Nexus 9 with 3,423 points. Apple’s A8 chip only takes the sixth position, scoring just 2,911 points. But when it comes to the more realistic, single-core performance, the Apple A8 chip outperformed the two rivals by taking hold of 1,626 points compared to the 1,443 for the Exynos 7420 and 1,186 for the Snapdragon 810. Interestingly enough, the biggest score goes to the NVIDIA Tegra K1 Denver inside the Nexus 9, which managed to tower over the competition with 1,976 points.

The difference between the chips isn’t huge, so you shouldn’t get too worried. Regardless if you choose to invest in the Samsung Galaxy S6, HTC One M9 or iPhone 6, you can be sure the phones will support snappy navigation and will handle basically pretty much everything you throw at them without a murmur. For the time being, the iPhone 6 is the only model customers are able to pick up from retail. As for the new Galaxy S6 and One M9, you still have a few months to wait until the first units start shipping out, although the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge already popped up for pre-order at Samsung Netherlands.
