HTC One Has the Fastest Touchscreen on a Phone Yet

HTC_OneM8

While traditionally, it is usually the iPhone which is considered to be the most responsive phone on the planet, Android has been making strong progress in this sector recently as well.

While things have certainly improved with the new KitKat update, kudos to HTC for bringing a device in the market with the most responsive touchscreen to come in a phone yet through its HTC One.

The phone will also improve Android’s reputation in this department.

The new One M8 comes with a touch response time of just 48ms, becoming the first phone to break the 50ms barrier. The iPhone 5s only manages 75ms, though, it is a last-gen device. Note 3 comes next, still quite a way back at 63ms.

Most last-gen devices only record a command over the 80ms barrier, however, tablets normally fared much worse.

The Surface 2 topped with a 92ms commanding speed, but the Amazon Kindle Fire HD, the next in the list only managed 114ms.

The new One comes with a powerful hardware; namely quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 2 GB RAM and Adreno 330 GPU. However, the display latency issue is dependent of other factors as well, including display tech, storage and the OS.

HTC also deserves a nod for customizing its skin in such a way so as not to cause visible delays.

Such a giant leap will not only make the phone visibly quicker in graphic-intensive games but also in everyday tasks.

    I have Samsung Galaxy S4 and some times it feels very slow especially when i have to dial some no urgently… It’s also a big frustration when you have to dial some no in emergency and your phone can’t respond at the speed which you want….

      Delete all the bloatware Samsung gifts along with their every phone.
      Oh Right! You can’t!!

    It’s merit mentioning that HTC declare loss in First quarter. so a highly doubts over above news.

      Sales figures have got almost nothing to do with technology. For instance, the Samsung tabs we covered the other day were quite mediocre but will still sell like crazy.

      Losing in a quarter doesn’t mean they aren’t capable of adding batter touch screen to there flagship. My two cents.

    My HTC one V suddenly goes off and never ON again.(motherboard dead)
    HTC One got the purple tint issue in most of phones.
    My personal opinion is just stay away from HTC.
