Samsung has been forced on the defensive yet again over reports that its top-notch smart phones are cheating at benchmark tests.

The Korean company has denied its Galaxy Note 3 superphone exaggerates its performance when it detects well-known benchmarks running, as was claimed Tuesday in an extensive, well-documented report on the Web site Ars Technica.

"The Galaxy Note 3 maximises its CPU/GPU frequencies when running features that demand substantial performance," Samsung said in a statement to CNET UK.
