Samsung Coded the Galaxy S4 to Give Misleading Benchmark Results

Jul 31, 2013

Samsung’s been caught sticking its hand in the cookie jar. A recent report by AnandTech reveals that the Samsung Galaxy S4 overclocks its processor specifically when running benchmark tests in order to make it look more powerful than it actually is. This causes the phone to look more powerful on paper than it is in real-world usage, especially to those who may download a benchmarking app unaware of the hard-coded trickery Samsung is doing.
