So that they are not disappointed in the performance of the SoC Tensor G3

Google has taken a rather unexpected step to ensure that users of the latest Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro are not disappointed in the performance of their smartphones: the company has simply banned the installation of popular benchmarks like Geekbench and 3DMark on its new flagships.

The ban is not absolute, since benchmarks cannot be downloaded only from Google Play, but you can use a third-party marketplace or install them via an APK file. However, the very fact of restricting the freedom of buyers of expensive smartphones does not speak in favor of Google: it is not for the manufacturer to decide what the user installs on his smartphone.

Google is proud of the Tensor G3 SoC and calls it its most powerful platform. But in terms of pure performance, it is inferior to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, not to mention the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 looming on the horizon. In reality, the overall performance of the Tensor G3 is approximately at the level of the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1. To be convinced of this, you don’t even need to install benchmarks – the Internet already has detailed independent tests and comparisons of Google’s new products with other models in all popular benchmarks.

When talking about the “power” of its SoC, Google focuses on accelerating AI tasks, while Geekbench measures overall performance and 3DMark focuses on measuring graphics performance. In both cases, the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro have nothing to brag about.
