Last month, Huawei was caught cheating on a variety of benchmark tests! This in several of its range tops, where we can include P20 and P20 Pro.
However, it was news that went by many people, since it was not the first, nor will be the last to be caught in this web of cheating … Well, now, it was Oppo’s turn! Oppo was also ‘cheating’ its consumers on at least two devices.
Where we can include your latest top-of-the-range Oppo Find X, which has already been removed from the 3DMark benchmark database, for that very reason.
In short, these phones are programmed to recognize the 3DMark application available in the Google Play store, by its name! Ensuring that all system resources focused on testing to ensure a better score. In addition, to be sure, the company UL, which is responsible for the benchmark itself, re-tested the devices with a ‘private’ version of 3DMark.
Finding out that both Find X and F7 were scoring about 41% above what their actual performance is. In the application available to the public, although the tests are strictly the same.
That said, UL even allows manufacturers a certain optimization in the detection of heavy tasks as a benchmark … But looking for the name of the application specifically, and optimizing your device according to what you find, is a real exaggeration.
Especially the Oppo Find X, which ranked fourth in the 3DMark Sling Shot Extreme test ranking.
“When we detect that the users are using applications like games, or 3D Benchmarks that need more performance. We allow SoC to run at its top speed for a better experience. “
That is, what is happening in reality, is different from the way Oppo explained to UL … Saying that the mobile phone identifies the most demanding applications and that only unlocks all its power at these times.
What in other words means that most of the time, the user only enjoys about 70-80% of the total power of the device.
