However, that is not the case for the every-day user or even while playing games the performance does not get the boost. Here’s everything you need to know about their cheating.

On Thursday, September 6, AnandTech posted an article where they aimed to expose how Huawei has been cheating the benchmarks. The article suggests that the company is using some sort of artificial intelligence in order to trick the benchmark software and getting higher benchmark scores.

According to the article by AnandTech, these smartphones come with a software which detects benchmarking applications and when these apps run their tests the software triggers the device to max out the performance. However, though Huawei is using max power t generate these scores, the processing power cannot remain the same during normal gaming as it will cause thermal issues as well as quick battery drainage.

3DMark started an investigation and the results are shocking. The results of the regular app and 3DMark’s internal testing vary a lot. Huawei P20 Pro which managed to score a whopping 2988 with the cheating software bearly made to 1930 without the software. Similarly, Honor Play and Nova 3 received a score of 1847 and 1534 instead of the public score of 2985 and 2915 respectively.

In response to the whole controversy, “Huawei explains that its smartphones use an artificial intelligent resource scheduling mechanism.
