Whether or not consumers are using their smartphones to their full potential, no one likes to hear misleading claims about a phone’s performance. We are talking about the performance throttling problem of various Samsung devices and in this case Samsung new tablet.

Samsung’s Game Optimizing Service (GOS) app, which came pre-installed on some of its devices, is said to have limit the performance of more than 10,000 applicationsdepending on the brand, only games.

This means that the CPU and the GPU were not performing to their full potential, and the screen it wasn’t as dynamic as Samsung had promised. In the past, users could bypass the GOS app, but Samsung’s latest One UI update has made that impossible.

Samsung has argued that it implemented these performance checks to prevent lags and improve temperature management to prevent devices from overheating, and so far has not admitted that any apps in addition to games were also affected.

android police found that GOS is a sophisticated system that considers several factors, including temperature and expected frame rate, when throttling performance. THE Samsung is now releasing an update which will allow you to disable the GOS if you wish.

Still, the general impression was that Samsung was dishonest, especially since benchmarking apps were excluded from the GOS-controlled list of apps, which meant they overestimated the day-to-day performance of phones, at least in the process of being tested. ‘use. 10,000 apps/games.

As a result, Geekbench has released the latest four Galaxy S series smartphones, including the 2022 Galaxy S22 series, and it looks like the Galaxy Tab S8 line will be next. Apparently, GOS has also affected the performance of Samsung’s latest series of tablets.

When the Geekbench app is renamed as Genshin Impact game to trick the system into thinking it’s not a benchmarking tool, single-core and multi-core scores drop dramatically. This is true for all three Tab S8s – Tab S8, S8 Plus and S8 Ultra – but older models like the Tab S7 and Tab S5e were unaffected. Any difference mentioned in the table below is within the expected margin of error.

The performance of tablets is not so limited by GOS, probably because there is more room for heat dissipation due to their larger size, which again supports the theory that Samsung’s main intention was to keep things running smoothly.

After all, Samsung isn’t the first manufacturer to do so. OnePlus and Apple have also been convicted of similar behavior in the past.

Geekbench cares no less about brand intent and is about to scrap the Galaxy Tab S8 lineup. It won’t affect consumers in any way or whether Samsung’s new tablets are likely to be the best of 2022. However, it will definitely affect Samsung’s reputation.
