    Earlier in the year it was revealed that several OEMs including OnePlus were cheating on Benchmark scores. This was a pretty major deal with plenty of backlash back in 2013 so to see it pop up again this year was a bit surprising. With a Snapdragon 835 processor, 8GB of RAM, and a vanilla Android experience it doesn't really seem necessary for OnePlus to cheat on benchmarks with the OnePlus 5T.

    OnePlus has made the commitment to no longer cheat on Benchmarks going forward with the OnePlus 5T. They had this to say on why they implemented app targeting on the OnePlus 5 to begin with.

    Benchmarking has never really been the best way to gauge real world performance in my opinion. I guess it is best used for gauging overclock high scores and for bragging rights. What are your thoughts are you glad to see OnePlus take this new stand with the new OnePlus 5T?

    I never rely on benchmarks anyway. imo since they are not the result of real world usage all they do is confuse things and give tech support work from novices asking questions as to why their phone usage does not match benchmarks.
