A funny thing happened while I was testing this year’s flagship phones. I started the year by testing the OnePlus 12and subsequently put the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra and Honor Magic 6 Pro through their respective paces, and I noticed something odd. While I’m not much of a fan of benchmark apps, I usually run each phone I test through Geekbench 6 as a standard way to measure where these phones all sit in relation to each other.>>>CONTINUE FULL READING HERE

On Geekbench 6, the OnePlus 12 clocked 976/4,864 single and multi-core scores, but the Samsung and Honor phones checked in at 2,171/6,950 and 2,186/5,698 respectively. All three phones use the same Qualcomm 8 Gen 3 processor (Samsung has the “for Galaxy” moniker tacked onto the end for some overclocking), so why is there such a disparity in performance?

I typically use each phone I test in its default state. In buying a new phone, most users don’t have the wherewithal to dive in and tweak every setting, load a new launcher, etc. Some will, and that’s the beauty of Android, but most will not. OnePlus phones as far back as the OnePlus 10 Pro have all had a “Performance mode” setting that allows you to suck the most performance you can out of your processor, typically at the expense of battery life. One might assume that this performance mode takes the form of an overclock, but based on the data, it appears that is not the case.

I decided to test the difference with performance mode on or off and compare those results against other phones running the same processor all the way back to the OnePlus 10 Pro. Here’s what I found.

Interestingly, the results were a bit of a mixed bag. On the chart above, blue indicates Geekbench’s single-core score, red is the multi-core score, and yellow is the 3D Mark score. The OnePlus 10T, OnePlus 11, and OnePlus 12, all saw the biggest differences. The OnePlus 12 alone saw a 66% performance decrease when performance mode was turned off (the default state) in Geekbench, but remained the same for 3DMark.

In fact, 3DMark was remarkably consistent for all the processors. The biggest deviation between the highest and lowest scores was 267 points, which amounts to a 7% difference overall. Geekbench on the other hand was an entirely different story.

With Geekbench, The OnePlus 12 was the outlier in the Geekbench scores with most of the other devices seeing a roughly 22% difference in scores. Oddly enough, Performance Mode on the OnePlus 10 decreased the Geekbench score by about 18%. You can see all the data I collected in my Google Sheet

along with some pretty tables if you like that kind of visual data.>>>CONTINUE FULL READING HERE
