Paul Lilly on why Futuremark delisted Samsung and HTC from benchmarks:
Delisted devices are stripped of their rank and scores. In this instance, several Samsung and HTC devices are accused of breaking Futuremark’s benchmarking rules. Futuremark didn’t elaborate on which specific rule(s) these devices broke, but a look at the company’s benchmarking policies reveals that hardware makers aren’t allowed to make optimizations specific to 3DMark, nor are platforms allowed to detect the launch of the benchmark executable (unless it’s needed to enable multi-GPU and/or there’s a known conflict that would prevent it from running).
Lying, cheating, stealing, misleading seem to be ingrained into Samsung’s corporate culture.
