For those of you wondering how fast the new Android smartphones like the Galaxy S6/S6 Edge and HTC One M9 are over its long-distant rival Apple’s iPhone 6, you may be in for pleasant surprise this year.

While I was doing HighOnAndroid SOT Test with my Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9 the other day, I noticed something very interesting, that the brightness on the Galaxy S6 was nearly twice brighter than the HTC One M9 with both set to average brightness setting.
The display is the most power-hungry hardware on your Android smartphone. Most smartphones battery life efficiency can be determined by measuring the SOT(screen-on-time). But is it possible to do this in a controlled environment?
HTC One M9 has one big flaw, that its auto-focus does not work correctly. 5 out of 10 shots taken with the M9 results in over-exposed photos and depending on where you focus, the exposure changes constantly. This is worse than the HTC One M7 and M8. Since this is a matter of the camera’s auto focus not doing job correctly, it should be fixed with a camera firmware update by HTC in the future.
If you’ve enjoyed watching our benchmark shootout between the fastest Android smartphones “right now”, you may want to also know that benchmarks aren’t necessarily the most accurate way to tell how fast a phone is.
For those of you wondering the performance differences between the Exynos 7420 processor on the Galaxy S6/S6 Edge vs. Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 on the HTC One M9/LG G Flex 2, we did a bunch of Antutu benchmark tests to find out.
