HTC One Mini Review: Meet Junior: Synthetic Benchmarks

By 04:43 Fri, 13 Aug 2021 Comments


Synthetic benchmarks

The HTC One mini uses the Snapdragon 400 chipset which has grown in popularity lately. It has two Krait 300 cores clocked lower than usual at 1.4Giga Hertz (GHz) and Adreno 305, along with 1GB of RAM.

Krait 300 should perform okay even at 1.4Giga Hertz (GHz) against the Krait 200 cores at 1.5Giga Hertz (GHz) as some older phones have. We wish the clock speed was at 1.7Giga Hertz (GHz) like it is in most dual- and quad-core versions of Krait 300, but still. What we're really concerned about is the limited amount of RAM, but synthetic benchmarks don't really show how Random-Access Memory (RAM) power affects usage.

Single-core performance is on the level of the Snapdragon S4 Pro-powered ex-flagships. Multithreaded performance is more of a mixed bag, beating quad-core Cortex-A9 phones in Linpack but lagging behind them in Geekbench 2.

Overall performance is in a similar situation - AnTuTu puts the HTC One mini at the bottom, while Quadrant pushes it above last year's flagships, but still near the bottom when recent phones are considered.

GLBenchimprint was run at 1080p offclassy screen mode to measure raw GPU performance, which seems to be above what Tegra 3 managed last year and close to the Mali-400 of the same generation. Still, comparing it to the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini (which uses the same chipset) shows the GPU was downclocked too.

Considering the HTC One mini has a 720p screen, Epic Citadel shows more realistic numbers. The Galaxy Mega 6.3 has a dual-core Krait 300 at 1.7Giga Hertz (GHz) and Adreno 305 with a 720p classy screen (unlike the qHD classy screen of the Galaxy S4 mini) but the Epic Citadel framerate is basically even, so the incompatibility in clockspeed doesn't translate into a huge real-world performance (not yet any way, heavier games will change that).

By the way, Adreno 305 supports OpenGL ES 3.0, which was recently added to Android (with 4.3) and that promised improved graphics, so there's room for improvement.

JavaScript performance of the HTC One mini browser is close enough to that of the HTC One, that it nearly doesn't matter (JS doesn't care for multi-core Central Processing Units (CPUs) much). However, BrowserMark 2 and Vellamo show scores that can compete with the current flagships (the One mini has to render pages at 720p, less than half the pixels of a 1080p screen).

We mentioned that none of these benchmarks really measure the effects of the relatively low amount of available RAM. That's becautilize you only notice it when running multiple apps and switching between them. That said, the One mini performed okay most of the time - it's not as snappy as its daddy, but there are no annoying slowdowns as far as we could disclose in the limited time we had with it.
