  3. OnePlus’ latest flagship devices i.e. the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro were found to be manipulating benchmark scores and have now been removed from Geekbench. The smartphones use the latest Qualcomm 888 chipset and it turns out that the devices don’t perform as their benchmark results indicated. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Both the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro were found to be running at full speeds only while running benchmark apps such as Geekbench and not in other applications. This, in a way, means that OnePlus was manipulating benchmark scores that were not reflective of real-world usage. Since the manipulation was discovered, Geekbench banned both the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro from its platform. Discrepancies were also found by AnandTech where it claimed that OnePlus was blacklisting popular apps for its faster cores. This would in turn cause a slow down in workloads such as web and social media browsing. They also noticed that benchmark apps like Geekbench and Antutu got a full performance from the smartphone while the two phones gave a reduced performance in other apps. Geekbench’s Response © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Geekbench also issued a statement on Twitter after it discovered that OnePlus was manipulating benchmark scores on its apps. “It’s disappointing to see OnePlus handsets making performance decisions based on application identifiers rather than application behavior. We view this as a form of benchmark manipulation. We’ve delisted the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro from our Android Benchmark chart. We will also test the other OnePlus handsets in our performance lab to see if these handsets also manipulate performance in the same way. If they do, we will delist them from the Android Benchmark chart,” Geekbench said in a tweet thread. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The benchmark company will also look into previous models that may have manipulated benchmark scores in a similar fashion. It is possible that previous smartphones by the company may also be delisted for benchmark manipulation. These may extend to models such as the OnePlus 8 Pro, OnePlus 8, OnePlus 8T and every other device the company has launched in the past few years. OnePlus is yet to release an official statement in response to Geekbench’s claims. We shall update the story once OnePlus provides a statement on the recent development.

  4. Travelling is a way of living for us and for our star gazing celebrities, it is a way of indulging in shenanigans, connecting with fans, and also making some money by visiting other countries for concerts or a movie shoot or just promotions. While Visa rejections and Visa delay issues are synonymous with simpleton people like us, there have been instances where a few countries have in fact banned a celebrity. Here are 7 celebrities who got banned for strange reasons: 1. Lady GagaOne of the most controversial and successful singers of our times was once banned in Indonesia after her personal style of dressing up and provocative lyrics angered Muslim groups. She was also called a ‘devil’s child’ who would spread Satanic teaching. View this post on Instagram 2. Katy PerryBack in 2017, the singer was supposed to perform in Shanghai but was unfortunately banned in China ‘indefinitely’ after she was spotted wearing a dress adorned with sunflowers at a concert in Taiwan in 2015. This gave rise to heavy criticism as in 2014, the sunflower was a symbol of protestors protesting against a trade agreement between China and Taiwan and hence the flower became synonymous with anti-China sentiments. View this post on Instagram 3. The BeatlesNow you’d wonder why a band full of talented musicians should be banned in a country. Well, back in 1966, on a tour in Phillipines, the band was banned by the first lady Imelda Marcos after the band declined an invitation to have breakfast at the Presidential Palace in Manila. In 1964 The Beatles were also banned in Israel due to the fear of influencing the youth in a ‘wrong way’. View this post on Instagram 4. AkonThe Lonely singer was banned from Sri Lanka after his music video which showed him dancing around the pool with a Buddha statue in the background and that caused massive uproar in the country. View this post on Instagram 5. Justin BieberThe Peaches singer offended the Chinese and got banned for indulging in ‘bad behaviour’ according to them. Another reason which was contemplated for the ban was that in 2014, he shared pictures of him at Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo. The shrine is a mark of Japanese militarism in China. View this post on Instagram 6. BeyonceQueen Bee was actually banned in Malaysia because her shows were called immoral in nature and were prompted to promote ‘western sexy culture’. View this post on Instagram 7. Snoop DoggThe famous rapper was banned in Norway because back in 2012, he was found guilty of possessing drugs at a local airport. He was also fined heavily for the same. View this post on Instagram View the full article

  6. ‘Checkmate COVID’ was a charity event that was supposed to be about raising awareness and funds for those struggling under the ongoing pandemic in India. Instead, it turned out to be a display of how far some of our biggest celebrities would go to win the smallest of accomplishments. On Monday night, Indian Chess Grandmaster and coach Srinath Narayanan shared a couple of screenshots of two massive names of the Indian film industry - actor, director, and produce Kichcha Sudeep as well as producer Sajid Nadiadwala, both of whom had their accounts banned by chess.com for using unfair means to win matches. Everyone suspected this. I didn't want to be the judge, jury, executioner. Now the truth of this whole thing is out and clear. pic.twitter.com/SqSbqpqRcf — Srinath Narayanan (@nsrinath69) June 14, 2021 On Monday morning, news broke that India’s youngest billionaire, Nikhil Kamath had cheated to win a match against the biggest name there has ever been in the history of Indian chess - Viswanathan Anand and that the event organisers had banned Kamath’s profile for similar reasons as well. Later in the day, Anand put out a very subtle tweet that was full of context while expressing he had no awareness of his opponents using computers and other people’s intelligence to try to beat him. He added that he had expected everyone to keep the ethics of the game in mind while playing. Yesterday was a celebrity simul for people to raise money It was a fun experience upholding the ethics of the game.I just played the position onthe board and expected the same from everyone . pic.twitter.com/ISJcguA8jQ — Viswanathan Anand (@vishy64theking) June 14, 2021 “Yesterday was a celebrity simul for people to raise money It was a fun experience upholding the ethics of the game.I just played the position on the board and expected the same from everyone,” he wrote on Twitter. During the day, Kamath not only acknowledged the fact that his 99% accuracy match against Anand was a result of additional help from computers and other people, but he also apologised to the Indian legend on a couple of occasions. @vishy64theking in my head, it was just a fun game we amateurs were playing against the greatest chess champ from India to raise funds for charity. But still gives no excuse for what I did. It was wrong and I sincerely apologize. — Nikhil Kamath (@nikhilkamathcio) June 14, 2021 “... in my head, it was just a fun game we amateurs were playing against the greatest chess champ from India to raise funds for charity. But still gives no excuse for what I did. It was wrong and I sincerely apologize,” Kamath wrote in response to Anand’s tweet. Unfortunately, with a trend forming with all the major celebrities trying illegal ways to show their dominance on the chessboard, fans have started questioning whether someone like actor Aamir Khan or cricketer Yuzvendra Chahal - an avid chess player in his childhood, would have also used these hacks or were they clean? guess only Arijit and Aamir played honestly — Priyanka ✪ (@eruditepriya) June 14, 2021There were others. Manu Jain, Yuzi and Ritesh. Yuzi is a hardworking sportsperson, he would not stoop to such a low or disrespect a legend. He loves Cricket and Chess. If anything, he might have seen the other games and knew then and there what was happening and felt disgusted. — Nitin Jain (@nitin525jain) June 15, 2021Almost everyone cheated except Chahal — Shashank KR (@Shashan93230927) June 15, 2021 View the full article
  7. Back in 2020, brothers Nikhil and Nitin Kamath created a massive stir on the Indian social media after entering Forbes’ list of 100 richest Indians at the age of 34 and 41, respectively. Nikhil, who is the Co-Founder Zerodha and True Beacon also used to be a professional chess player and has even represented the country in a few tournaments. Kamath feels that it was the game of chess that helped him understand the market better, especially by analysing the various deviations in strategies. Therefore, it was an obvious decision to make India’s youngest billionaire become a part of a charity event for the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic in which he was to sit across the board from chess legend Viswanathan Anand. Massive THANK YOU to everyone for making this event a grand success! 🏻 We are glad to share that we managed to raise more than 10 Lakhs from this event! @AkshayaPatra Note that you can still make a difference by donating here and help us #CheckmateCovidhttps://t.co/mgOmSwr54n pic.twitter.com/fZxZAGrleR — Chess.com - India (@chesscom_in) June 13, 2021 But then something remarkable happened. Kamath not only gave the grandmaster a tough competition but ended up winning against him. However, it was later revealed that the businessman had “gamed the system” and his profile was eventually banned for “using unfair means”. So the Zerodha CEO Nikhil Kamath played a charity chess match against Visvanathan Anand for COViD relief. Gamed the system to win. Got his chess profile banned. A little shameful to cheat to win against a World champ. pic.twitter.com/67GvU2j6tD — MB (@desiboho) June 13, 2021 The banning took place two days ago and ever since, the news spread across social media like wildfire with Kamath receiving some significant backlash. It was not until Monday morning that the accused finally spoke about it on Twitter with a post that was supposed to justify what he did, followed by a casual apology, but only made matters worse for him online. Here’s his complete ‘apology’: It is ridiculous that so many are thinking that I really beat Vishy sir in a chess game, that is almost like me waking up and winning a 100mt race with Usain Bolt. pic.twitter.com/UoazhNiAZV — Nikhil Kamath (@nikhilkamathcio) June 14, 2021 "Yesterday was one of those days that I had dreamt of when I was a really young kid learning chess, to interact with Vishwanath Anand. Got the opportunity thanks to Akshaypatra and their idea of raising funds for charity conducting a bunch of chess games with Vishy. It is ridiculous that so many are thinking that I really beat Vishy in a chess game, that is almost like me waking up and winning a 100mt race with Usain Bolt," Kamath said in a statement. "I had help from the people analyzing the game, computers, and the graciousness of Anand sir himself to treat the game as a learning experience. This was for fun and charity. In hindsight, it was quite silly as I didn't realise all the confusion that can get caused due to this. Apologies," he added. Here’s now Anand’s fans and even those who admired Kamath for everything he had achieved so far, reacted to the post: Corrected it. pic.twitter.com/NRSjlCwwfR — Pankaj Gautam (@IAmPankajGautam) June 14, 2021"Yeah I fucked up and got caught so now let's try to paint the narrative in my way by saying that using computers in chess is obvious and everyone watching the livestream expecting an honest normal game was a dumbass" such ridiculous people we are guys🤦 — Forza Belgium (@kdbisgod) June 14, 2021Nikhil, I've always looked up to you but this isn't acceptable. Such a casual apology after what happened yesterday raises a lot of questions. Did you think that you would outsmart the world using engines and nobody would know? 1/2 — Chirag Jain (@Chiragjain122) June 14, 2021You should have made this clear as soon as the game ended. — Avinash OK (@avinash_ok) June 14, 2021I mean if you've had exposure to chess since childhood, might as well been clear about how using stockfish or any chess engine is unethical no? Good riddance nevertheless :) pic.twitter.com/GC2s7PWcSD — Deva prasad (@dvprsd1997) June 14, 2021 View the full article
  8. Battlegrounds Mobile India is about to launch soon, however, it seems like the game cannot keep out of trouble due to its relationship with China’s Tencent. While Krafton, the company behind the game has been clear about having any links with the Chinese developer, it seems to not be enough for Lok Sabha MPs. According to Zee News, Nizamabad, Telangana, Lok Sabha MP, Arvind Dharmapuri has officially written to IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad asking for a probe into Battlegrounds Mobile India’s relationship with China’s Tencent Games. The letter, that was sent on June 2nd, mentioned Dharmapuri has received a representation against the game by Nizamabad-based social activist Sai Kumar. © onur-binay-unsplash The letter does not ask for an outright ban on Battlegrounds Mobile India but it does put the game under scrutiny. The letter highlights key issues with the game and asks the Indian Government for a probe as well. According to the letter, Battlegrounds Mobile India stores data in India and Singapore and also allows for international data transfers. Dharmapuri has also asked the Union Minister to look closely at Krafton’s investment and agreements with Tencent for national security reasons. It seems like the Indian Government officials have not ignored the relaunch of PUBG Mobile as Battlegrounds Mobile India. Last month, Arunachal Pradesh MLA Ninong Ering had also asked to ban the upcoming game in the country. MP Abhishek Singhvi also demanded a ban on the game stating that the Battlegrounds Mobile India would allow for Tencent’s re-entry in India. © Twitter_arvind dharmapuri Even with negative press, Battlegrounds Mobile India has amassed over 20 million pre-registration on Google Play in anticipation of the launch later this month. Having said that, as of now the Indian Government has not determined the fate of Battlegrounds Mobile India. It could be possible that the game might get banned if the Indian Government finds practices that violate India’s national security or unearths links with China’s Tencent Games.

  9. Ever since Krafton announced Battlegrounds Mobile India, it is widely being assumed as the Indian version of PUBG Mobile. However, prior to the announcement of the game, Krafton removed all mention of PUBG Mobile from its social media accounts and YouTube page. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla In a new report by IGN India, the company is now asking content creators to stop using PUBG Mobile nomenclature in any videos henceforth. The reason given to streamers is that the company does not want Battlegrounds Mobile India to get banned as well. IGN India cites WhatsApp messages viewed by the outlet which were allegedly sent from Krafton to these creators. “We would also suggest to not use PUBGM in your content anymore as it was banned and we don’t want to be banned again,” reads a part of the message. “We would recommend using words like Battlegrounds Mobile India, Korean game, Indian version in your content.” IGN says that Krafton is asking streamers to not use PUBG Mobile’s name, which first appeared on popular content creator, Gaming Aura’s Instagram story. The story has now been deleted, however it can still be viewed on Controversial Gamer’s YouTube channel. Over the weekend, it was also reported that Battlegrounds Mobile India might be using gameplay made in China and bears a close resemblance to the Chinese version of the game in terms of features. © Krafton It is currently unknown whether the game has been granted permission by the Indian Government, however, the company said, “With privacy and data security being a top priority, KRAFTON will be working with partners, to ensure data protection and security, at each stage. This will ensure privacy rights are respected, and all data collection and storage will be in full compliance with all applicable laws and regulations in India and for players here.” PUBG Mobile was banned in India last year due to its partnership with Chinese games developer Tencent. The game was banned by the Indian Government on the grounds of national security and privacy. Krafton has now partnered with Microsoft to run its in-game servers and has recently made a donation of Rs 1.5 crore to the PM Cares fund to help battle the second wave of COVID-19 in India.

  10. Australia has had one of the most strict set of international rules and policies when it comes to dealing with the coronavirus pandemic and it is safe to say that their ways have worked, considering the very few number of people (15-25) testing positive on a daily basis with practically zero per day deaths since October 2020. So when some of the Australian citizens made their trip to India to become a member of the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League as players, coaches, and commentators and found themselves in the middle of the most adversely affected region of the world at the moment, their travel rights to go back to their country were quickly and very swiftly taken away. Official Announcment: Adam Zampa & Kane Richardson are returning to Australia for personal reasons and will be unavailable for the remainder of #IPL2021. Royal Challengers Bangalore management respects their decision and offers them complete support.#PlayBold #WeAreChallengers pic.twitter.com/NfzIOW5Pwl — Royal Challengers Bangalore (@RCBTweets) April 26, 2021 Australian cricketers Adam Zampa and Kane Richardson were the only two athletes who were able to make their way back home by finding a travel loophole in the Australian government’s plan. With direct flights between the two countries, they decided to fly to Doha first and then make their way home from there. The country’s government has shut transit flight routes via Doha, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur.https://t.co/kJV9HOjrga — scroll.in (@scroll_in) May 1, 2021 However, as soon as they reached Melbourne, the government decided to fix these loopholes, shutting down ‘Via’ flights from places like Doha, Singapore, and Kuala Lumpur, bringing complete exodus to the rest of their citizens who are absolutely stuck in India, amid the largest wave of COVID-19 that the world has ever seen. One such person is the former Australian cricketer turned commentator, Michael Slater, who called out his Prime Minister Scott Morrison for such a move: If our Government cared for the safety of Aussies they would allow us to get home. It's a disgrace!! Blood on your hands PM. How dare you treat us like this. How about you sort out quarantine system. I had government permission to work on the IPL but I now have government neglect — Michael Slater (@mj_slats) May 3, 2021 “If our Government cared for the safety of Aussies they would allow us to get home. It's a disgrace!! Blood on your hands PM. How dare you treat us like this. How about you sort out quarantine system. I had government permission to work on the IPL but I now have government neglect,” he tweeted. On Tuesday morning, the Australian PM addressed Slater’s comments and called his take “absurd”. “What we’re doing here is we’ve got a temporary pause in place because we’ve seen a rapid escalation in the infection rate in people who have travelled out of India,” Morrison said on the Nine Network. Understanding the gravity of the situation, many of the local Australians also decided to stick with their leader’s decision of imposing the travel ban and reminded Slater that he must have known the potential risks of flying down to a hotspot even before the tournament had started. Sorry but the safety of those Australian that live in Australia supersedes those that have chose to travel overseas (to known hot spots) for work during the pandemic, ride it out now Champ, I only feel for people who have been trying to get home prior to March/April 2020!!! pic.twitter.com/D0M27Il56Q — Cebreb (@cebreb) May 3, 2021Give me a break. You chose to go there knowing full well there was a covid crisis going on over there. You must have known there would be risks. — Sami Dowd (@samidowd) May 3, 2021We’re in a pandemic but you still CHOSE to go to India. You knew the risks but you went anyway. Did you expect to be able to pull the “don’t you know who I am” card to get around it? — Nicole Ryland (@dalley8) May 3, 2021Pretty sure you knew the risks before you left! Same as the Olympic athletes, although they don’t get any coun like you. — Jodi Willis-Roberts OAM (@THROWER_7) May 3, 2021U left to work overseas during a pandemic surely u must have suspected something like this could happen. U weight up the risk v reward and u lost. If u were that worried u shouldn’t have left — cliffy1981 (@cliffy19811) May 3, 2021“This is a temporary arrangement,” Mr Morrison had said earlier in the month. “It’s being put in place to ensure that we do not get a third wave here in Australia and that our quarantine system can remain strong.

  18. Indian airline companies Spicejet and GoAir have decided to not allow Vivo shipments on their planes after a recent consignment caught fire right before it was about to be boarded on a plane. The Indian aviation regulator Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) is also putting the incident under scrutiny and will take a decision on whether to issue an advisory to all airlines operating in India. © Twitter In an internal circular dated April 13, 2021, Sanjiv Gupta, CEO-Cargo, SpiceJet, said, "With immediate effect, acceptance of mobile and accessories shipments from the company manufacturing vivo phones has been restricted till further notice on all SG flights.” Earlier this week, a Vivo shipment of Y20 smartphones caught fire before it was about to be loaded into a Hong Kong Air Cargo. The shipment was bound for Thailand. However, it never took off the ground as the fire engulfed the entire shipment and lasted for 40 minutes. Videos of the incident were shared on Twitter where it shows the fire started with one pallet and later spread to two more. © Twitter_Andre Quiros The cause of the fire has not been determined yet but is being suspected the fire could have been caused by faulty or damaged lithium-ion batteries present in the smartphones. Having said that, a fire caused by a pressurised cabin can be ruled out as the shipment never made it into the plan and caught fire right before it was about to be loaded. Faulty batteries in smartphones can cause them to blow up or catch fire as was the case with the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. © Reuters Vivo is currently investigating to ascertain what caused the fire in the first place and said in a statement “We have paid high attention and immediately set up a special team to work closely with the local authorities to determine its cause.” It is currently not known whether Vivo Y20 smartphones or other models have a similar problem that can cause fires. As of now, consignments from Vivo are on hold until airlines receive clarification from the company. There is also no word whether a ban on the Vivo Y20 has been put in place for passengers as well.

  20. In a very competitive market, smartphone companies are always looking to one-up each other with impressive benchmark scores. However, Realme was found cheating to get that advantage. One of Realme’s phone the ‘GT’ has been banned by the Antutu Benchmark app as it was found manipulating scores to fool potential customers about its performance. © Realme In a Weibo post, Antutu outed the Realme GT was allegedly cheating its benchmark test as the phone scored 750,000. However, the benchmark removed the phone’s score from the database and has banned the smartphone from showing any results for the next three months. According to a general translation, Antutu said that the Realme GT’s score was “not a manifestation of true strength, but obtained through cheating and other means.” The phone was found using thread delay tactics to run a multithread test on its fast CPU cores as much as possible. The phone also “modified” the reference JPG image used by Antutu to manipulate the score. Instead of processing the image, the phone instead used mosaic colour blocks to reduce the quality of the image for a faster render and processing time. © Weibo © Weibo Antutu said that both tactics are gains the spirits of the benchmark due to which the phone’s scores have been removed and banned for a further three months. The benchmark app also issued an ultimatum to Realme stating that if the company does not change how the phone completes the benchmark, it will be permanently banned by Antutu. For companies manipulating benchmark scores is nothing new as they often use it as a marketing tool. This is not the first time a smartphone has been caught cheating as other companies like Oppo, OnePlus, Samsung Meizu have been accused in the past as well. There is no word whether other benchmarking tools like Geekbench 5, PCMark, 3DMark and others have also banned the phone from showing any results at the moment. © Weibo Realme’s CMO Xu Qi Chase issued a statement on Weibo calling the scores “real data run under the current version” of Antutu.
