It's only been one day from the moment when rumors started to appear on the internet about Samsung, which is trying to use some tricks to score higher in benchmark test with the Galaxy S4 and the company already gave an answer for those accusations. They completely denied what they were accused for and offered an official statement about the situation created. They are saying that the Galaxy S4 was originally designed for a max GPU frequency of about 530 MHz and the capacity was diminished for the good of the system. Samsung claims that some games can probably overload the device and they assured this way for avoiding a collapse. Also, they said that those games can cause the damage if they are played for a long period of time in full screen mode. Also in their declaration, we found that the maximum GPU frequency can be used for the S Browser, Camera, Gallery and Video Player which are important parts of the device and need to run at a high level. Of course, they are also telling us that they try to provide the best services for the customers. The declaration of the company isn't saying anything about the applications used by benchmarks and why are those using the full GPU frequency. So, we do believe that they are hiding something or they misstated the truth for their own benefit. However, the Galaxy S4 is a good device even if the GPU real max frequency is higher or lower.
