Multiple Samsung, HTC devices banned from benchmark site for cheating


Despite the company’s denial last month, Samsung has been found by multiple reputable testers to cheat on benchmark tests. According to reports, several Samsung smartphones and tablets crank up the heat when they detect benchmark tests being performed. The problem seemingly extends beyond just Samsung though, and several other vendors including HTC and LG apparently juice their benchmark tests as well. Now, it looks like benchmark test providers are starting to fight back. As noted by The Register, benchmark test creator Futuremark has publicly shamed Samsung and HTC by removing several of their devices from its website. The site ranks smartphones and tablets according to their performance on its 3Dmark test for Android, which measures graphics performance on mobile devices.
