Anonymous, 05 Aug 2020false my old s7 still fast no slowdown faster than iphone x That's just false - I upgraded from a GS7 after 2 years because it was starting to feel a little bogged down by modern websites. It was a modest upgrade to the SD835 powered Essential PH-1, but the newer SoC plus the lighter launcher was appreciably snappier in day to day usage. I eventually replaced that with an iPhone X (still have the PH-1 as a backup/secondary device), and the X continues to feel fast after 2 years; faster than the Essential, significantly faster than the GS7

Heck S7 Exynos gets hot. Seriously hot. Even lowest settings in games. And drops in performance. iPhone 6s still runs better despite whatever batterygate they claim.

Helen Lantos, 05 Aug 2020Yes that's the one I was talking about. They slowed do... moreYou sound as if Samsung is innocent.. theyโ€™re even worst considering the disastrous note 20 they launched.

$1000 smartphone with plastic back?..why release it if it would be that bad?...who does that?..Not even the most shamed apple.. they have conscience you know.. at least iPhone 12 will come at a lower price while being visually same phone with some added stuffs.unlike Samsung who downgrades the overall devices and increase prices at the same time.

So think think twice before making false statements.. Samsung is the most greedy smartphone company as at now.

They may have wanted to bring consumers to their new devices, but didn't apple show that their slowdowns were nessecary?

"According to Apple in 2017, the slowing down of older iPhones was implemented to preserve the aging of the lithium-ion batteries used in the iPhones. Lithium-ion batteries are particularly prone to quick deterioration but as all batteries age they do not hold as much charge as they would brand new."

Nokia had this in their old lumia flagship. It was a great feature. This was about 2013 I think.

JDK, 05 Aug 2020wait, what scam? You mean the one where they slowed down... moreYes that's the one I was talking about. They slowed down the phones so people would continue to buy new ones. Many people suspected that and eventually they found out it was true. Apple got sued and paid a lot of money in settlement to make the case go away.

They are such greedy scammers. No wonder they are a trillion dollar company. As a consumer I hate when companies scam us like that. It's just based on pure greed and a consumer-hostile attitude.

Vivo nex 3 and huawei mate 30 pro have a charging port, so they don't count.

Helen Lantos, 05 Aug 2020Good to know:) I just don't trust these phone companie... morewait, what scam?

You mean the one where they slowed down older devices? That's cause they have to save battery and prevent accidental shutdowns. They were only at fault cause they didn't tell consumers in advance.

Annas, 05 Aug 2020This is how you do it for perfect allayment Like they did... moreYou do realise an Android OEM has already removed charging port and gone fully wireless in 2019? Apple is also catching up but good attempt ;)

Apple might finally be ready to release an official wireless charger?
Am I reading right?
