Comparison System Specs
The table below contains all the pertinent technical specifications for today’s comparison units:
The iPhone 5s represents ARM v8, Meizu's MX3 represents the Exynos 5 Octa, Xiaomi's Mi3 represents Nvidia's Tegra 4, Google's Nexus 5 represents Snapdragon 800 performance on Android, and the Lumia Icon represents the same chipset in Windows Phone 8.1.
Although we benchmarked the HTC One (M8), the One (E8) offers identical performance as a result of its identical internals.
