Microsoft explained that high performance touch performance is becoming increasingly key aspect of a mobile device's user experience.
Microsoft report on Display latency

Apparently the HTC One's diplay latency is record breaking - measured at 46ms, ahead of other 2014 flagship smartphones, in particular well ahead of the S5 and Z2.

Source: Lesnumeriques.fr

It is not at the 1-20ms recommended by Microsoft but it is a great step forward considering the fact that 2014 smartphones barely go below 70ms. The previous record was held by the Note 3 with 67ms.

Here is the 2014 smartphone ranking:
  1. HTC One M8: 46ms
  2. Note 3: 67ms
  3. Asus Padfone: 73ms
  4. iPhone 5S: 75ms (same as iPhone 5)
  5. Nexus 5 : 75ms
  6. S5: 91ms (165ms with activated air view and deactivated "increased sensibility")
  7. Z2 100ms (glove mode)
  8. LG G2: 110ms

Note: the fastest tablet has 54ms (IPad Mini Retina)

Here is an overview for older devices:



It will be interesting to track the performance of other devices: S5, Z2, etc...

Yes 0,6 sec but that's only one device. Thinking about it even 170 ms is a lot. Almost one 1/5th of a second...

Yes I think this plays an important role in the perceived snapiness of a device . that's also probably why I wasn't so impressed with the LG G2.

This is an incredibly important aspect of every phone that people shouldn't ignore like they seem to. Touch latency is one of the many reasons why iPhones have always seemed so snappy. Now that HTC has even surpassed Apple, it shows that, while Android has been relatively smooth for a while, with proper touch latency it can blow you away. Good job HTC and, yes, I did notice.

I have a hard time trusting that chart, I'm not anti Samsung or anything (in fact I love them) but there is no way in hell the s3 tested faster than the HTC One. Or any Samsung phone for that matter, the delay in touch responsiveness has always been my biggest gripe with Sammy products.

Guys as per forum rules, please keep the discussions device specific. Comparing phones against each other in a general way is against forum rules. If this keeps happening I will close the thread.
