Today, a user on the Weibo reported that Huawei P30 powered by Kirin 980 on AnTuTu benchmark scored only 238031 points, which is quite low compared to Snapdragon 855 chip.

The user wrote, “AnTuTu don’t you dare to lower the score of Kirin 980” while comparing Huawei P30 with Snapdragon 855 powered phone.

In response to this AnTuTu officially said, it has been noted many times, EMUI 9 doesn’t enable the Performance mode by default, in order to save the battery life. The Performance needs to be activated manually from Battery options.

“Kirin 980 cannot achieve higher score points without activating the Performance mode, users of Kirin 980 power devices can activate the Performance mode and compare whether benchmark scores are different from before and after activating the mode as well as its fluency”
