Asus PadFone Infinity and HTC One – Battle of the Snapdragon 600 flagships
For those who prefer to measure performance from benchmarks, we have the results here:
ASUS PadFone Infinity
ASUS PadFone Infinity (In ASUS PadFone Station dock)
It appears that the HTC One is slightly behind the ASUS PadFone Infinity in terms of overall Antutu score, but fares slightly better than the ASUS PadFone Infinity in terms of CPU performance. It is also obvious from the Basemark GUI scores that the HTC One lags behind the ASUS PadFone Infinity in onscreen GPU performance and is nearly on par with the ASUS PadFone Infinity in offscreen GPU performance.
As for the ASUS PadFone Station dock, we can see a rather interesting mix of results – the ASUS PadFone Infinity’s CPU performance miraculously improved when docked with the ASUS PadFone Station. However, the higher resolution of the ASUS PadFone Station’s screen certainly put a strain on the ASUS PadFone Infinity’s GPU – we see an obvious drop in Antutu scores and Basemark GUI fails run properly, scoring the docked ASUS PadFone Infinity a straight 0.
The ASUS PadFone Infinity managed two days of regular usage on a single battery charge, beating most smartphones’ (Including the HTC One) charge-once-per-day battery life. This is not all – as the ASUS PadFone Station dock packs a massive 5000mAh battery, allowing the ASUS PadFone Infinity to be recharged on the move while being docked in the ASUS PadFone Station. This allows the ASUS PadFone Infinity to average a whopping 4 days of use on a single charge – HTC certainly has a lot of catching up to do!
