HTC One (M8) Benchmark Boost Called A Feature By HTC

In an unsurprising bit of news, HTC has been caught cheating on bemchmark tests on its HTC One (M8), but the company not only admits it, they boast it is a feature. Ubergizmo received the interesting response from HTC on Sunday.

The cheating was caught by the new AnTuTu Benchmark X app. This version of the benchmarking app is coded in such a manner as to catch cheaters. As described on the Play Store:
A special edition of AnTuTu Benchmark to prevent fraud and cheating!

The X editor for the Ainol & Ramos device!!

AnTuTu Benchmark X Edition is free benchmarking app that helps users to know deeper to their Android devices, without fraud and cheating!
The standard version of the benchmark is here.

Bemchmariked with the standard version, the HTC One (M8) managed an amazing 38,815 score, which is miles ahead of the Galaxy S5’s 34,898 score. When the X version of the app is used, the HTC One M8 slows to a snail-like 27,171 while (strangely) the GS5 rises to 35,357.
