That one thing would be the touch latency/response time, at 46ms. This is astounding compared to the Note 3's 67ms and the iPhone 5s' 75ms.
If the S5 can come close, I'd be extremely surprised.
Touch latency makes a huge deal for the feel of a device, so it's great that HTC pulled this off!
What do you guys think of this?

I think this is something that means nothing to the masses until they experience it for themselves.

It truly is a revolutionary feature if thats what you want to call it. Its a great step forward though.

Exactly. Touch latency is one big thing that keeps me on iOS. It makes the entire user experience SO much smoother, and it's even more noticeable when typing or navigating quickly.
I wonder if it's the same on the GPE though? That's my model of choice, but if it'll have more latency I wouldn't want to get one.

Thread closed,

Please remember forum rules. Please search for existing threads before creating new ones. EG: Record-breaking display responsiveness (touch latency) on the HTC One M8

Many thanks,
