According to Huawei and UL, both have held a comprehensive discussion on the benchmarking practices and have reached a positive agreement on the next steps of them working together.

Huawei explained that its smartphone use an artificial intelligent resource scheduling mechanism.

Because different scenarios have different resource needs, the latest Huawei handsets leverage innovative technologies such as artificial intelligence to optimize resource allocation in a way so that the hardware can demonstrate its capabilities to the fullest extent, while fulfilling user demands across all scenarios.

UL stated that they understand the intent of Huawei's approach. But, they also opposed the force use of "Performance Mode" by default when the 3DMark benchmarking application is detected by the device.

Huawei respects consumers’ right to choose what to do with their devices. Therefore, Huawei will provide users with open access to "Performance Mode" in EMUI 9.0, so that the user can choose when to use the maximum power of their device.

In the statement, Huawei said that they would like to participate in an industry movement to develop benchmarking standards that serves the needs of manufacturers, press, and consumers.

Earlier reports suggests that the P20, P20 Pro, Nova 3, and Honor Play has higher performance on 3DMark when the phone detects the benchmarking app.

The measure that both Huawei and UI will do is to temporarily delist the benchmark scores of several Huawei devices. Those devices will be reinstated after Huawei grants its smartphones the access to the Performance Mode.
