Idk why every test on the net shows otherwise, until a recent one from like 3 weeks ago - which decreased throttling. Havent seen any recent game tests though, just antutu throttling test, and its improved a lot.

You mentioned 3dmark first, not me. I gave the proof showing you are wrong by giving what you asked for.i was wrong about oneplus only. 3dmark isnt a throttle check, its just something you asked for. To prove you wrong i had to go get it.

So what if they are? They are the ones i mentioned, and which you claimed 3dmark shows otherwise. And then you were proven wrong. Only after that do you mention all the other stuff.

You are the one who's more wrong. Wrong about 3 brands while i was only wrong about one. And if we take actual game performance, you are totally wrong.

I can still spare some time for people like you, see you soon.










Mediatek sux, 24 May 2021Uh i guess they changed it in the newer firmware? Or you... moreNo idea it's just always run well for me, very consistent performance. It's on the XSA region firmware which seems to be a good one

Some might like the size.

Before giving proof you haven't say a thing about 3dmark for comparing.
Instead you gave a bunch of 3dmark link first.
Then when you're proven wrong now you're turning around.

Black Shark, Red Magic are sub brand. I said, if we start doing 5 Chinese brands list then there won't be enough well known Chinese brand to add. I told that to make point that I was talking about phone models, not phone brands.
I didn't say Black Shark is unknown to people.

You just can't take it that you came into this topic from nowhere and lost the bate.

I don't have time for guys like you.
Good Bye.

AnonD-1000793, 23 May 2021I paid 350€ for my S21 though. Lol. Exynos 2100 model, beca... moreyou make big mistake should buy the a52 or 21 ultra than the most useless s21.

samsung now only give the best to ultra. s21 and s21 plus is even worse than a series.
this is why more discount on s21. you unknowingly fall into trap haha.

with a52 you get all of the s21 feature plus you have bigger screen and sd card.
now s21 with cheap plastic and reduce grade 1080 display is why worse than the a series.

For me i will wait for the s21 fe.. with 888 chipset. already know and experience the inferior
exynos.but not sure how downgrade the feature will be.... 6gb ram? hopefully not. plastic back what to do need to accept lower quality than my current phone. 1440 my current phone to 1080 what to do hopefully can cope. camera lower grade hopefully not too much.

P C M, 24 May 2021What actual performance is that's totally different. ... more3dmark is not a proof of less throttling. Benchmark cheating has existed for years.

Mi 11 actual game perf increased 3 months ago atleast
https://youtu.be/RHmB10jzt70

And what i asked was not for proof, but which brand is it that actually throttles more than samsung . And the statement you gave was '3dmark says otherwise' when i mentioned those gaming phones. When only one of those - oneplus was worse. And then you go on to say some stuff like 'ofc gaming phones' and then 'not well known brand'. Your'e on a phone tech site and you claim to not know what blackshark and redmagic even make.

Anyway like the other guy said samsung has also decreased throttling, i checked some antutu thorttling tests on youtube and its really improved in latest update. Atleast the exynos one.

No samsung didnt manage anything until the latest update, the exynos especially was very bad. Apple can do it because it still gives better performance than samsung even with throttling. Among oneplus, samsung and huawei the one who cheated more in 3dmark is definitely samsung, why do you think oneplus and huawei perfroms better than samsung in the game while being worse in 3dmark? And xiaomi was the biggest cheater though, highest in 3dmark but worst in game.



Mediatek sux, 23 May 2021Redmagic, blackshark have only that one flagship model. I a... moreWhat actual performance is that's totally different.
I gave you proof that what I said was not wrong. Usually I don't make wrong statements.
This type of performances are opinion based and situation based. You said, what is my proof. I said, 3DMark is my proof.

If you talk about Mi 11 actual game performance then you should know that Mi 11 throttle down to half the framerate.

S21 runs cooler than those phones. It performs better then why do you think I'm giving wrong statement ?

The truth is Samsung always manage to balance performance vs usability(except 2 years of exynos disaster). Same is Apple. Both of these brand don't cheat on benchmark. Yes Samsung might do a little worse in some game(definitely not worse than everyone) and better in others even running a lot cooler. But if you compare it with the benchmark gap those device have with Samsung then you'll get it how much they cheat.
There are just few who hates everything these brands do.
I saw people complaining about One UI.
Now Google itself is copying the oneui features to Android 12.

Most people just see what they want to see.

NB : If you really like more performance and hot phone you can definitely turn up 2 degree temp form Samsung app. There is an official app for that.

You're welcome.

Or you got some low ambient temps. Even on older versions exynos with power saving mode upped stability to 77.8% with 5510 first run.

To tell you the truth I entered the Samsung store to buy an A52 or even an A32. I end up buying a S21 for the same money, lol. For me is a win situation.
I already have a second phone (a Poco F3) if I want to game or something. But I have problems with the display on that one. For gaming I don't care that much, but for other things is annoying. I am waiting to see if they will correct them with MiUi 12.5.
