OnePlus 5 Could Beat Samsung Galaxy S8 On Performance

OnePlus 5 Could Beat Samsung Galaxy S8 On Performance

OnePlus 5 Could Beat Samsung Galaxy S8 On Performance, if a new leak is to be believed.

There are plenty of ways to test how powerful a smartphone is, but the most popular method is benchmarking. This involves using software that pushes a handset’s processor to its limits, resulting in a final score that describes how well the phone performed. Geekbench does just that, and is one of the more popular benchmarking apps.

Excitingly, we may have some benchmarking details for the OnePlus 5 – before the phone has even been officially announced. GSMArena has received a screenshot of a Geekbench readout for the OnePlus 5 – a.k.a OnePlus A5000 – which it claims came from a “very credible source”. Naturally we can’t verify this information however, so take it with due caution. This could be very easily faked.

But if it’s real then it’s a serious win for the OnePlus 5. The handset managed an impressive 1963 single-core score and a similarly lofty 6687 multi-core score.

Local authorities are urging shoppers to think twice about buying hoverboards for Christmas because of the “significant” fire risks they pose.

The call from the Local Government Association (LGA), which represents 46 fire authorities in England and Wales, comes after a number of major retailers pulled the self-balancing scooters from their shelves.

The LGA said more than 80% of 38,000 hoverboards stopped from entering the UK by Trading Standards since October had been deemed unsafe – many because of an “increased risk of exploding or bursting into flames”. read more
