Samsung denies cheating Galaxy Note 3 benchmark tests

Last week, Samsung was accused of foul play as reports claimed that the company was cheating benchmark tests for its upcoming Galaxy Note 3 mobile phone.

However, the company has denied that it has done anything wrong and defended the recent test results for its super-sized phablet.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will sport a 2.3GHz quad-core processor and the company says that the results are down to its incredible CPU performance.

“The Galaxy Note 3 maximizes its CPU/GPU frequencies when running features that demand substantial performance,” the company told CNET UK.

“This was not an attempt to exaggerate particular benchmarking results. We remain committed to providing our customers with the best possible user experience.”

However, Samsung's response does little to actually explain why the device would run on all four cores whenever it detects well-known benchmarking software.

The results for the Galaxy Note 3 were significantly faster than the LG G2, which has an identical Snapdragon 800 processor inside. The figures varied but Samsung's handset was between 20 and 50 per cent higher than LG's smartphone.
