Samsung and LG troll Apple over battery slow downs

Apple slowing down their iPhones results in TROLLING from Samsung and LG

Apple has found itself in hot water after being busted slowing down previous-gen iPhones in the grand gesture of helping the batteries inside of their smartphones, but now main competitors in Samsung and LG are trolling Apple.




First, Samsung came out and said: "We ensure extended battery life of Samsung mobile devices through multi-layer safety measures, which include software algorithms that govern the battery charging current and charging duration. We do not reduce CPU performance through software updates over the lifecycles of the phone".


Now remember, Samsung isn't innocent when it comes to battery-related drama as they went through explosive times in 2016 with a global recall of their flagship Galaxy Note 7 smartphone. I personally purchased one and regrettable returned it after Note 7s around the world were exploding.


Fellow South Korean electronics giant LG talked up that they don't throttle their smartphones, nor do they compromise on performance. LG said they "Never have, never will! We care what our customers think".
