Last month, Huawei was caught cheating on benchmark tests. Two of Oppo’s devices, including its flagship Find X, have been delisted from 3DMark...for the same reason. The Find X and F7 were scoring to 41 percent higher with the publicly available app than the private one, even though the benchmarking tests were identical. Oppo admitted that it was specifically identifying 3DMark, commenting to the company, “When we detect that the user is running applications like games or 3D Benchmarks that require high performance, we allow the SoC to run at full speed for the smoothest experience.” That’s different from how Oppo explains that its devices handle computationally demanding apps it doesn’t recognize by name, and they simply use the default power optimization strategy. In Oppo’s case, that means limiting performance to between 70 and 80 percent and only offering full power when the user interacts with it.

 

My Thoughts:

It's been benchmarking scandal after benchmarking scandal lately. From Samsung to Huawei, it appears almost no manufacturer isn't cheating at faking benchmarks. I won't be surprised if more big companies are found to be cheating before the end of the year.

It's basically becoming an industry thing standard. Their logic is But everyone is doing it. That's what even Samsung said in 2013 when they were caught by Anandtech. One Plus did it with 3 and 5. No one should be surprised by this point.

The ability to google properly is a skill of its own.

I'd like to understand why people base purchasing decisions on phone benchmarks o_o

Well, its not like there is only 3 SoCs to choose from or something. And it really doesnt matter which one you pick.

More like one.

 

You only get the Exynos on international Samsung SKUs, and Kirins on Huawei phones, and those have weaker GPUs than Qualcomm's.
