Geekbench, a performance benchmarking platform delists OnePlus 9 Pro and OnePlus 9 from its website. This information is given by a tipster on Twitter and also it is being told that the company cheated about the benchmarking scores of these two phones, after which they were removed from Geekbench.
GeekBench tweeted very disappointing to see OnePlus handsets which judge performance based on application identifiers and rather than application behaviour. We see this as a benchmark manipulation. We also have removed OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro from our Android benchmark chart.

GeekBench said further that all OnePlus phones will be tested and finds out if any other devices are doing the same thing. There will be a testing process being done for the rest of the OnePlus smartphones in the company’s lab to see if any manipulation being done in them and GeekBench will remove them from the benchmark chart as well if this happens anyway.
AnandTech, a tipster said that the OnePlus 9 Pro’s software uses an application detection mechanism and intentionally running apps such as Google Chrome, Firefox, Zoom, WhatsApp, Facebook, and Instagram. During the testing process performed, it was found that the slow speed browser benchmark did make a point in scoring that were not at par and with any other Snapdragon 888 device in the market, which yields only a fraction of the scores and performance of other devices.
Now there is a question arises that why did OnePlus do this and the company has not said anything about this at the moment, but it would not be wrong saying that the company has done this so that the battery life and power efficiency of its device can be better.
