Samsung was busted last week allegedly slowing down more than 10,000 apps on its smartphones. With the exception of benchmarking apps, a function called Game Optimization Service (GOS) is slowing down hardware performance in system apps, social apps, Google apps, and a variety of third-party apps.
GOS was shown to be reducing app performance by up to 56 percent, according to a Korean YouTuber. Although the YouTuber was unable to illustrate the performance difference by renaming 3DMark to Genshin Impact, a popular video game, the optimization service does not function for testing apps.
Benchmarking results with and without GOS revealed the difference in performance.
Samsung has openly acknowledged the issue and issued an apology to its Korean customers. GOS is supposed to minimise overheating during gaming, but the business doesn’t explain why it’s slowing down tens of thousands of apps. Samsung has also stated that a fix for GOS will be released soon.
The Samsung Galaxy S22 series comes with GOS (Game Optimizing Service), which optimises CPU and GPU performance and prevents overheating while you play a game for a long time. We plan to update the Game Booster Lab as soon as feasible to provide an option to prioritise performance in order to satisfy the current needs of various clients.Advertisement
Samsung appears to be planning to add a performance option to GOS, removing hardware limits on Galaxy phones. It’s unclear how many phones were affected by this issue or when a remedy would be available. As soon as further information becomes available, we will update this space.
