OnePlus has confirmed that it purposely slows down “many of the most popular apps” in order to improve battery life
OnePlus has confirmed that it purposely slows down “many of the most popular apps” in order to improve battery life on its new OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro phones. The problem was discovered during testing by Anandtech’s Andrei Frumusanu, who described the situation as “quite perplexing” after discovering stoppage across a wide range of Google Play Store apps.
OnePlus is “blacklisting popular programmes away from its fastest cores, causing delay in routine tasks such as web browsing,” according to Anandtech. The website attempted a variety of Chrome and Twitter implementations, but concluded that the snarl “applies to everything that has any kind of popularity.”
In the past, several phone manufacturers have been caught fraudulently enhancing execution so that their devices perform abnormally fast in benchmarks. That isn’t exactly the case; while benchmark programmes appear to be operating within assumptions, the display of “standard” applications has been reduced. However, GeekBench, a well-known testing tool, labels OnePlus’ methods “benchmark manipulation” and has removed the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro from its Android benchmark list.
