Samsung needed some oversight in this area. Let's hope they all keep each other honest and it isn't just a buddy system to add validity to otherwise doctored results.

We all know how Samsung like to overclockers their devices whilst being benchmarked.

This is horrible. Samsung caught AGAIN cheating on benchmarks with Note 3 and now want to dev a bench mark test of their own?!? Hilarious stuff.

BTW - 3 to 1 odds that TH will not add Samsung Note 3 benchmark cheat article. Too Android biased here. heh

People's worries of Samsung is legitimate, given the article from Anandtech no too long ago. Cheating on benchmark is nothing new, but cheating is cheating.
Criticizing Samsung does not always means I am an ifanboy. (Although not excluding it either). For sure, I am not a fan of Samsung, and certainly I am not paid by Samsung to post in forum.

Like always, you never disappoint. You are a true apple iHick. Apple as well as many other companies have done the same thing BUT Samsung doesn't need to do it since they are already NUMBER 1 in smartphones. Now go back and play with your dumb little iToys.

I really have no horse in this race since I'm a quite happy WIndows phone user who would still consider switching to Android if anything, but... Are you denying that Samsung essentially cheated on benchmark tests, or is your response "It doesn't matter if they cheat - they sell more so it's OK"? Curious, if Apple was caught cheating on a benchmark, would you be so quick to gloss over it?

Now Samsung doesn't have to cheat in benchmarks anymore...... :(
