After it was revealed that Apple intentionally reduces the performance of its older smartphones as its batteries deteriorate, users soon protested.
As a result of that controversy, a question arose: does this also happen with Android phones?
It seems that no. The evidence is that, to begin with, several companies such as Samsung and Motorola directly stated that they do not.
But there is a more reliable way to verify it, and it is the same one that exposed the iPhone problem: corroborate the benchmark reference scores of the previous Android phones to see if there are enough results that are significantly worse than the scores of a completely new phone . This is exactly what the Primate Labs company did.
When Apple released the updates that slowed down their previous iPhone, it was to mitigate battery problems, which do not seem to have been reported on any major Android device, even with old batteries.
There are two factors that contribute to these problems do not exist in Android. The first is that the batteries are large. The battery capacity of most high-end Android phones is generally greater than that of the iPhone.
One of the main problems for older iPhones was that, when the phone is exposed to large current demands, the battery could not handle it and the phone would turn off.
Apple chips are incredibly efficient, but this does not mean they are error-proof.
