Samsung withdraws handling of Benchmarks with Android 4.4.2

Now it's explained why the Galaxy S5's performance was worse than Note 3's performance on the AnTuTu benchmark test: Samsung seems to have eliminated from its Android 4.4.2 firmware KitKat the infamous code that manipulated benchmark results to get better score.

<p>Who doesn't remember the results manipulated in the Galaxy S4 and Note 3 benchmark tests? On these devices, Samsung included a code in its firmware that forced CPU activity to full speed, thus achieving the best results only during testing.</p><div class=

According to the laboratory Primate Labs, this feature came with the Android 4.3 firmware from Samsung. Thus, the score difference was artificially large with respect to the anterior (Jelly Bean 4.2.2) and posterior (KitKat 4.4.2) version.

<p> Now Samsung seems to have decided to delete the manipulative code from its latest update (which came in the package <em>com.sec.android.app.twdvfs</em>), according to the website <em>Ars Technica</em> based on information from Android developer Mohamed Karami. A step towards transparency by the South Korean company, even though no official announcement has yet been made.</p>
