After Apple claiming that it did intentionally slow than your iPhone, the community moved over to Samsung and the Android giants claiming the same that they too slow down your devices. These claims were easily denied by the Android Giants.
If you this Samsung was done clearing the air about this rumor, you are wrong. Samsung released a statement.
Samsung does not provide the software updates to reduce the product performance over the life cycle of the device. We will gladly cooperate with Italian Authority for Market and Competition’s investigation in Italy to clarify the facts.
Don’t get confused, the statement was directed to the antitrust authority in Italy for the unfavorable claims. The same group, the Italian Authority for Market and Competition, is also investigating Apple and other companies who do business in the country.
Samsung doesn’t fully write the Android OS but has some control over it – kind of, and as a way back Samsung users like myself I know it Samsung doesn’t go into UX deeply like Apple and will have no reason to slowdown your device.
