In a future update, Samsung will allow users to manage the performance of their devices.
Galaxy S22 and S22+ devices have been found to have limitations in place which slow down the performance of thousands of applications. So far, Samsung has been silent in response to the outcry, saying only that it would allow customers to “adjust the performance while operating gaming applications” after careful evaluation.
In a statement, the business said that “our focus is to create the greatest mobile experience for users.” However, Samsung promised a software update “soon” that would allow owners greater control over the speed and performance of their device.
Despite the fact that the bulk of the damaged applications are in fact games, the initial article indicated that services like as Instagram, Netflix, TikTok, and Microsoft Word were also affected. This difference is critical. According to a statement from Samsung, its Game Optimizing Service “does not control the performance of non-gaming applications.”
In the end, it doesn’t really matter. Netflix and TikTok, for example, don’t actually require the full unfettered capability of a flagship phone to run properly, as proven by the fact that they work on pretty much any phone. You can give Microsoft Word as much power as you like, but the text won’t appear any quicker (or not to the extent that it would be noticeable by a human).
The fact that benchmarking software was curiously absent from the throttling list was even more troubling since Samsung failed to address it in their response. By failing to provide this information, purchasers of Samsung smartphones may obtain the false idea about the capabilities of their devices based on the theory rather than the actual experience. If Samsung was really concerned about battery life and overheating, then benchmarking software should have been subjected to the same restrictions.
Geekbench has no doubts about this. All four versions of Samsung Galaxy S have been removed off the Android benchmark chart by the manufacturer, which is rare. Of course, Samsung isn’t the only firm to have been delisted for manipulating the system: Huawei and OnePlus have also had their reputations tarnished. It was also considered that the best solution was to allow the owners control throttling. Source
