While cheating in benchmarking is largely a thing of the best in the desktop PC market, it seems to be quite rampart in the smartphone industry. After reports of manipulation in benchmarks like AnTuTu and GFXBench, Futuremark now reports that it has banned several Samsung and HTC devices from its 3DMark benchmark database for artificial inflation of benchmark scores. Devices banned from 3DMark include the HTC One, HTC One Mini, Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (Exynos 5 Octa and MSM8974), and the Samsung Galaxy Note III (Exynos 5 Octa and MSM8974).
There it is.
Right from the creators of the apps themselves.
Samsung and HTC are filthy cheaters.
