They are different geekbenches, look at the version# 

oh shit.. i didnt even notice that.. The note 20 is downloaded form the play store, the note 9 is downloaded from the web.. must be why. I didnt want to reactivate the note 9 on my google account and have to re-take it off after i was done downloading one app.


Why is it doing this though? do they test in different methods on different versions?

They adjust the software and update it, so two different versions will have different results :o

hmm. good to know. I'm running the same older version on the note 20 to see what the results will be.

Thanks for the response.

Each version is slightly different, and the results aren't really comparable. It's like Cinebench R15 vs R20.

Makes you really think twice when you see people just posting Geekbench scores all willy-nilly now doesn't it? Sometimes we just can't trust benchmarks 100% sadly.

yeah i guess so.. I never realized an app update made that much of a difference.

I guess my concern is that you believed those benches?

 

I mean, can't you tell the 20 is snappier and faster in actual use?!

Why be rude for no reason? Do you really think my normal phone use is to max out the power of either device? can you name a single app that needs an 8 core 2-3ghz processor and 8-12gb ddr5 where i would notice the difference between the two? they are both powerhouses. the 2 year old note 9 will still crush 90% of the phones coming out today. and they both have a 1440p screen. Theyre both set for the animation scale, window scale and transition scale to .5 so they behave identically from window to window, Theyre both set to 551DP minimum width in developer settings, theyre both running on the same 5ghz network at the same 400mbps internet.. So since youre so much more knowledgable than me, please inform me the use case where the difference in power is noticeable in normal phone usage. And i guess you also are aware i got the note 20 a few hours ago and havent had that much time with it. The day has been spent setting it up and customizing it and downloading and organizing apps and transferring media. I appologize i ran a benchmark and didnt realize they were different versions and then didnt automatically know why the scores were different from what they shouldve been. I'm sorry. i'll try harder next time. dont hit me.

Went off the rails rather fast. 

 

But yes, when I can notice the difference between a OnePlus 8, Sammy 20, Pixel, ThinQ, and other new release phones, a 9 vs 20 should be pretty clear.  

 

Wasn't a huge deal to me, but it was to you.  Sorry to have triggered you.
