If anything, the 5c is a failed experiment in trying to please the masses.
In a statement issued to CNET UK today, Samsung stated, “The Galaxy Note 3 maximises its CPU/GPU frequencies when running features that demand substantial performance. This was not an attempt to exaggerate particular benchmarking results. We remain committed to providing our customers with the best possible user experience.”
But Samsung has already admitted that yes, it does benchmark boosting, while somehow nonetheless claiming that it does not. Complete doublespeak.
“A maximum GPU frequency of 533MHz is applicable for running apps that are usually used in full-screen mode,” Samsung said, “such as the S Browser, Gallery, Camera, Video Player, and certain benchmarking apps, which also demand substantial performance.”
