yes, i bought it new. Furthermore, even if it isn't new this performance shouldn't be acceptable for a phone that has only been released for a month. What power saving functions are there that I can turn off? Should I send it in for servicing?
@userjLIsA46K0d oh ok. The reason I ask is because, since this is the US Samsung Community, not many people here will have a lot of experience with Exynos models. If your phone is having noticeable problems, I would recommend having it looked at the very least. Power save settings in device care (under battery) will reduce your cpu max speed. In the same menu, the "more battery settings" page will give you the option to enable enhanced processing.
It is common for any phone to score low if you're not careful.
turn off your phone and let it cool down so that there wont be any temperature throttling.
Then start it, let it settle a little and rerun the test.
If it's still low and you want you can also go to Settings->General Management-> Reset->Reset settings to default. This wont touch your apps but will change all the phone settings to factory default.
I'm pretty sure that there is no issue with the phone, you just have to set things up for success like the manufacturer did when he marketed the performance.
