AnTuTu has obtained a brand new update, variant 7.2.6, and the changelog mentions a very major point. The fresh version what was unveiled earlier Presently, mentions that it will “fix the problem! of an abnormal operating score of UX caused by malicious exploitation of system permissions by some manufacturers”.
In the past number of years, it has become a trend for manufacturers to swanks about their smartphone’s AnTuTu scores, even at their release events. This is specially true in phone releases in China. These types of is the importance that we give to this benchmarking tool.
And in the process, we have usually seen manufacturers tweak their cameraphones to score improved than others. OnePlus, Meizu, OPPO, Huawei have all been found cheating on AnTuTu in the past. This isn’t really surprising given that users usually suppose a higher AnTuTu score is synonymous to a faster and more powerful smartphone.
The regular method of cheating on AnTuTu has been to tweak the smartphones to detect whenever the app is operating and unleashing the full power of the Processor with no any regard for efficiency, what it often would, under normal use case scenario.
AnTuTu 7.2.6 update doesn’t truly explain how it would stop such cheating from manufacturers, however if you were concerned that you might be fooled, at least have idea that AnTuTu is trying everything from their end.
Personally, I believe we really should usually take AnTuTu scores for the sake of reference, instead of pitting two smartphones with minute differences against each other to hail one as the ultimate winner.
