LG and Samsung also confirm that old phones will not slow down
Apple admitted to deliberately dropping old iPhones, with the plan to continue to do so. This has not been well received on the Internet and major companies have decided to distance themselves from such practices. After the announcement of HTC and HTC yesterday, LG and Samsung also confirmed that the performance was not changed by slowing down older phones.
Speaking to PhoneArena, an LG representative said they “would never do that,” adding that the company took care of what customers think. The other Korean manufacturer gave a longer answer:
“Product quality has always been a top priority for Samsung Mobile.” The spokesman said that the battery life of Samsung phones undergoes multi-layer security measures including software algorithms. CPU performance is not reduced by software updates to extend battery life.
