OnePlus 5 Said to Manipulate Benchmarks; OnePlus Responds

OnePlus 5 Said to Manipulate Benchmarks; OnePlus Responds

Which is why it produces such high scores in Geekbench.

This is not the first time that XDA Developers have pointed the finger at OnePlus for benchmark tampering. While the core hardware specifications of the company's latest high-end smartphone are obviously great, the OnePlus 5 also boasts a number of less obvious functionalities and characteristics that differentiate the handset from its competitors. There is minimal frequency variance in comparison to a non-manipulated ROM, resulting in higher sustained performance. The result was slightly better performance in benchmarks, but the publication concluded that it was due to the sudden merge of the OxygenOS and Hydrogen OS development teams.

The OnePlus 5 is finally official after months of anticipation, with the Chinese consumer electronics manufacturer unveiling its latest Android flagship just moments ago. According to the earlier report, OnePlus has targeted the same set of benchmark apps as last time.

The cheating mechanism causes the OnePlus 5 to report benchmark results to report at the maximum potential ability for OnePlus 5.

Fast-forward to June, OnePlus has unveiled its latest flagship, the OnePlus 5.

XDA-Developers received its review unit ten days ago and has learned that it contains a blatant cheating mechanism that maximizes performance within benchmark apps. The report further states that the benchmark scores in reviews "is misleading both writers and readers, and performance analyses based on synthetic benchmarks are invalidated".

We've reached out to OnePlus for comment and will update this post when we hear back.

XDA says that the phone "resorts to the kind of obvious, calculated cheating mechanisms we saw in flagships in the early days of Android, an approach that is clearly meant to maximize scores in the most misleading fashion". It points out OnePlus 5 manages to achieve high Geekbench 4 scores for Snapdragon 835 by keeping all little cores clocked at 1.9 GHz. XDA Developers has stated that overclocking the little cores is not a precise representation of the smartphone's daily usage.

"People use benchmark apps in order to ascertain the performance of their device, and we want users to see the true performance of the OnePlus 5".

The difference in multi-core performance results obtained from Geekbench 4 Play Store version, and that used by the site is around 6.5 per cent.

OnePlus' statement reads, "Therefore, we have allowed benchmark apps to run in a state similar to daily usage, including the running of resource intensive apps and games".

OnePlus 5 is powered by Snapdragon 835 chipset that includes four Kryo 280 cores running at 2.45 GHz and another four Kryo 280 cores working at 1.7 GHz. The smartphone's initial reviews are also in, and a lot of them laud the fast performance of the OnePlus 5. These were the same apps that the OnePlus 3/3T showed an advantage in. Additionally, when launching apps the OnePlus 5 runs at a similar state in order to increase the speed in which apps open. All the little cores are running and kept at 1.9GHz.
