Android users might feel compelled to breathe a sigh of relief after HTC and Motorola officially said that they don’t slow down the processors of their older phones as their batteries age.
This comes as a response on a controversial practice that Apple admitted to doing for phones. In fact, this practice started from the iPhone 6, 6S, and SE. To verify this info, the Verge contacted multiple companies. So far, spokespeople from HTC and Motorola confirmed that their phones do not slow down as they age. In fact, an HTC representative made it clear that designing phones to slow down their processor ‘is not something we do.’
However, it does feel a bit worrying that Samsung and Sony will delay their responses to this query from The Verge. In fact, a Samsung rep said outright that the company was looking into whether or not it happens to their devices. Overall, though, the answers from Android phone-makers so far point to Apple’s actions being an anomaly in the business. You can bet, thougn, that as more and more companies come out with answers, Apple will get into deeper trouble with this new revelation.
