Nope. Mostly, the only difference is an increase in clockspeed.

Nope. Not even close.

The processor is 14% faster, but the clock speed remains the same 2.3Ghz on HTC One M8 and Xperia Z2 Tablet (Same speed as the SD800 containing LG G2 and Galaxy Note 3)

So far only the Galaxy S5 is advertising a faster clock speed 2.5GHz.

So not only is the processor faster (regardless of clock speed), camera is also 45% faster (with improved support for dual camera use, like the HTC One M8 collecting depth information), the GPU is 28%, and the new memory interface is 17% faster.

So there is actually a lot of changes but not enough to make it the deciding factor between a 800 vs 801 phone.

TL;DR version: Better? Yes. Significantly better? No.

Both are incredibly powerful mobile chips, though the 801 is slightly better.
