I recently received my S21 Ultra model number SM-G998U (T-Mobile 512 GB). 

Upon doing benchmarks in Geekbench 5 and 3dMark. I noticed my scores are far below average for this device (bottom 5% according to 3DMark). I ensured "enhanced processing" is enabled and no power saving features are turned on. 

Here is what I am getting after ensuring the phone is cool to prevent throttling. Tests were done plugged in after a fresh restart. Screen was in 1080 default result with adaptive refresh rate turned on. 

Geekbench 5
Single core: 843
Multi core: 2932

3DMark
5210
Wild life unlimited. 

Anyone else getting similar results? All the YouTube reviews I see have way higher scores for this phone. Did TMobile throttle the device or might mine be defective?

might be a case of where we received the less efficient prototype ones first

@Psyclopps I scored significantly higher than you, and I also have a TMobile variant.

It could certainly be a result of what you have for apps running,.  Here's my Ultra. FHD+ Adaptive refresh.  It's too bad you cant run this in safe mode.
