LG, Samsung, Motorola And HTC Say They Do Not Slow Down Old Smartphones

Dec 30, 2017 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

Apple has grudgingly admitted these days that it intentionally slows down the performance of older iPhone models to respond to reduced battery capacity.This is technically understandable and also quite reasonable, but Apple has made the mistake not to act transparently in this regard.


Apple competitors have rushed in rows to target the media that there is no such practice.iPhone users have discovered that their devices may slow down over time under certain circumstances, and initially, there was no explanation or statement from the manufacturer.

Some speculated that Apple is deliberately slowing down its smartphones to get users to buy a new device. In the meantime, the manufacturer has announced that this is indeed very well done, but for technical reasons. More specifically, throttling the power during spikes, so under heavy load to prevent crashes. This was originally done on the iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE, with iOS 11.2 it was also extended to the iPhone 7.

As a result, many owners of a competitor device have wondered if their manufacturer does the same. And according to previous status or the word messages, no one in the Android does this. Meanwhile, LG, Samsung, Motorola and HTC have voiced their opposition to The Verge and Phone Arena, all denying that they are doing something like this or something similar.

HTC simply said, “We do not do that,” Motorola said that “you do not throttle CPU performance based on older batteries.” LG said: “We never did, we will not do it! It’s important to us what customers think about us.” Samsung had the longest statement to offer, but here was the conclusion: The CPU performance is not touched.
