Samsung Chief apologizes for recent controversy over alleged performance manipulation Samsung Galaxy S22 series And Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Series. There are allegations against the company App throttling And because of this, the flagship smartphones of the Samsung Galaxy S series have been removed from the benchmark site.
OnePlus OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro were also accused of manipulating benchmarking scores through app throttling on smartphones. According to the company, the move was aimed at improving the device’s battery life and heat management. The company says it will add an ‘optimized mode’ toggle to Oxygen OS 12 to combat throttling.
What is app throttling
In simple terms, app throttling means intentionally reducing the performance of a particular app. The goal of the app’s throttling performance on a smartphone is to increase gaming performance and battery life. As reported, smartphone makers are deliberately disrupting the performance of popular apps in the Google Play Store, such as Google, Chrome, WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram, Netflix, Zoom and many more.
Automatically controlling the performance of downloaded apps helps smartphones improve native app functionality. This helps users avoid any lag while scrolling through the device’s user interface. Because the smartphone throttled app requires less memory to run, it has more memory left to quickly boot games and native apps.
The report states that Samsung’s Game Optimization Service (GOS) software, which is pre-installed on Samsung Galaxy S22 phones, hampers the performance of more than 10,000 apps. Samsung says it will release a software update to offer performance priority options in Game Booster Labs under the Game Launcher app.
When it comes to OnePlus, the report claims that the company is using an application detection method that was deliberately running popular apps at the slow core of the processor.
