There's a lot of rumors stating that the m8 is basically "cheating" benchmarks to get higher scores. Any thoughts? Personally, I don't care if they are. Everything about this phone is silky smooth and extremely responsive. It might actually be the most responsive phone I've used

As long as it's smooth and fast I could care less about benchmarks. Stopped running them a couple of years ago. They're useless.

I thought kit Kat made it so that doesn't happen anymore (at least on the m7 and gs4, etc)

This.

Probably every OEM is cheating on benchmark (which I find very lame).
