It was earlier last month, when Huawei was caught faking DSLR shots as smartphone pictures during a commercial shoot for Huawei Nova 3. And, Huawei was very much criticized for the same on the social media. It seems Huawei can’t keep itself away from controversy. Yet again, the Chinese smartphone maker has landed into another controversy here. According to the market reports, Huawei employed unprincipled ways to tamper the benchmarks for its smartphones score higher in the tests. IFA 2018: New Huawei P20 Pro 8GB RAM Variant Launched; Gets New Morpha Aurora & Pearl White Colours.

The Chinese tech company admitted of tampering the benchmark scores and mentioned it as necessary to be in the highly-competitive smartphone space. The justification, however, from Huawei was not just acceptable to 3DMark, which is developed by UL. The company straightaway delisted four Huawei smartphones from 3DMark for violating the rules related to performance analysis. The four devices delisted from the benchmarking tool are Huawei P20, Huawei P20 Pro, Huawei Nova 3 and Honor Play. Tesla CEO Elon Musk Smokes Marijuana During a Live Podcast Before Reshuffling the Top Management.

As per the report from GSMArena, this action was taken by the company after individually testing the four mentioned handsets in a private version of 3DMark, which is not available to manufacturers. IFA 2018: Huawei Officially Reveals New Generation Kirin 980 Chipset.

The testing further revealed that the scores reported by the smartphone maker were 40 per cent more as compared to the one recorded on the private version of the app. Moreover, it is also reported that Huawei has assured UL to change the way its smartphones interact with 3DMark. However, Huawei is not the first company smartphone company to use such practices to make its smartphones to score better on the benchmark tool in comparison to its rivals.
