Early HTC Butterfly S benchmarks show it beats HTC One, trades blows with Samsung Galaxy S4

Early benchmarks for the HTC Butterfly S are in and unsurprisingly it muscles the HTC One out of the way. It gives other flagships a run for their money too, topping several benchmarks and coming close to the top in the rest. And this is with early, unfinished software too.

The Butterfly S packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 chipset with four Krait 300 CPU cores clocked at 1.9GHz, Adreno 320 GPU and 2GB of RAM. Those are the same specs as the Samsung I9505 Galaxy S4 and better than the HTC One (same chipset, but CPU is at 1.7GHz, GPU is probably clocked lower too).

The HTC Butterfly S comes very close to the I9500 / I9505 Galaxy S4 duo in the CPU benchmark Geekbench 2 (note: I9500 uses Exynos 5 Octa chipset). The difference between the Butterfly S and I9505 is about 1%.

GLBenchmark 2.5 and 2.7 show an improved framerate, which supports the hypothesis that along with the CPU overclock the GPU got overclocked too.

Not bad. The Butterfly S also brings a bigger 5″ 1080p screen compared to the One and uses the UltraPixel sensor (but without OIS). The battery is a massive 3,200mAh too.
