In a latest prolonged and in-depth investigation, AnandTech discovered a really attention-grabbing “optimization” on the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro in relation to varied apps. In essence, the OxygenOS analyzes the apps it is going to most of the time restrict the efficiency in what we assume is a bid to increase battery life. Nevertheless OxygenOS wouldn’t supply the restricted efficiency to benchmarking apps, which Geekbench sees as dishonest.
That is why Geekbench took the motion of eradicating the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro from its database. Geekbench says that the system makes efficiency choices primarily based on the purposes’ identifiers quite than habits. Or in different phrases, the system appears to be like for particular apps to make the most of its full efficiency quite than boosting efficiency when any app calls for it.
In Geekbench’s books, that is efficiency manipulation and also will look into different OnePlus gadgets to see if the identical applies to them as nicely.
It isn’t fairly the identical case because the dishonest modes up to now the place producers will tune their telephones so that they ignore thermal limits when working benchmarks. As a substitute OxygenOS was discovered run at its designed restrict throughout benchmarks, whereas nearly each different app will get lower than the complete efficiency. The impact could be very related although – benchmarks scores would point out a stage of efficiency that simply is not there for apps.
It could be attention-grabbing to see how this story unfolds and if OnePlus will take any motion. Thus far, there is not any official response from the corporate.
