Motorola, Samsung and LG confirmed that they do not slow their phones as their competitor, Apple was doing it. Apple was slowing performance of iPhones that packs older batteries. For which, Apple faces huge criticism from the customers worldwide. Other than these three, HTC also issued a statement not taking any of the step that degrades user experience.
Samsung and LG not practising slowing of their phones
When several reports emerged that American mobile maker is slowing iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 with aged batteries, Apple admitted the practice of such step. Thereafter, Apple was sued by back to back lawsuits across the globe for not informing users about this step and it was meant for increasing sales of newer model of iPhones. Multinational Technology Company then issued official statement saying, it was never meant for personal interest instead this practice was carried out to get rid of unexpected shutdown of iPhones with older batteries. Apple apologised and issued post-warranty battery replacement at a whooping discount of $50.
Before other brands smartphone users start doubting them considering the step of Apple. They issued official statements separately for not carrying any such practice. First, Samsung Electronics said;
“Product quality has been and will always be Samsung Mobile’s top priority. We ensure extended battery life through multi-layer safety measures, which include software algorithms that govern the battery charging current and charging duration.”
This statement was followed by similar statement issued by LG also, committing that it had never done and will never slow performance of it’s performance. Then, Lenovo-owned, Motorola also cleared the air that they do not believe in such practice and neither they have implemented nor they will implement it. HTC also assured their users of not carrying out any unethical, unmoral activity that degrades user experience.
