Went into a Telco store. Cleared recent apps for all. 2 s5s had 28k antutu x score. 1 other one had a decent 35k one. Note they weren't overheating at all.

Let's suppose you got 50,000 points on Antutu X. Would that suddenly justify your purchase? or would that make you sleep better at night? Trust me whether it's 25,000 or 50,000 it's not going to have any impact at all how the phone works. Judging a phone based on Antutu score is just wrong.

BTW, a benchmark which doesn't provide repeatable consistent result isn't worth it.

I do analyze benchmarks for a living (not these tiny consumer devices, but mission critical enterprise products). I can appreciate good benchmarks and we also understand why certain statistics are irrelevant or just simply wasteful.

28xxxx something with power saving on and a much better 36xxx something with it off.

I dont hold much stock in these things but it is a tool to play with none the less.

Possibly because it has some store demo stuff on there. I heard some store units ran different firmware than units that were sold, hence some store units were called SM-G900X
