Anonymous, 21 Dec 2017I laugh at my sisters Note 8 every time I see the lag on the lockscreen when it turns on lol Yeah, I even went as far as tested the lockscreen many times in case it was just a random lag.. But no, that wasn't the case. Incredible, a phone with such high-end SoC should not lag. Not even with Samsung's way of optimizing the performance.
Strange things... I know a lot of people have problems when using their IPhones when it's a bit cold. They shutdown or battery shows 0 etc.
I mean I have had some android phones and none of these have problems in cold. - 10 to - 20C screen might get slow but no battery issues or shutdown etc.
My girlfriend just sent me a message that her iPhone 6s is showing low battery and it's only 0C outside. Crapy phones I would say. Not to buy in the north.
I always knew they slowed devices down because the last OS update my iPad Air 2 never ran the same. Whats the point of slowing it down to make the battery last long? now that its slow I don't want to use it. If it dies then people can replace if they want to. Now I'm forced to buy a new battery because they say so??... NOPE, I'll put that money towards a new Android tablet that I know will be there same after a few year.

And in turn, this will give innovative ideas to android manufacturers.
People are busy with real life crap to be bothered by these slimy behind the scene manipulations anyway.
Tann Hauser, 21 Dec 2017You have to give one for Cupertino.... They have a hell of a PR managment. Some apple user... moreIndeed! They've managed to spin what is actually being caught red-handed degrading older devices performance in order to make a new sale. If they actually cared (at all) about the costumer, they would've issue a clear warning so that the user could take action (do nothing, replace battery, replace phone). Instead they just hide it in hopes the user throws away that obsolete phone and buys a new one. Shameful!

This is the first news I think that Apple should be hated for. But still, the rest of the Apple hate is overexaggerated and senseless. The best they can do now is replace the faulty batteries of the older ones and make the phones fast again (or at least leave this Â„featureÂ“ optional). The worst they can do now is nothing.

Though your reply on my follow up post gives me hope you are not like the high and mighty apple users (and SOME android users) who will bite anyone that says something bad on their fave manufacturer.
No matter how legitimate. Like this stupid stunt from Apple.
You have to give one for Cupertino....
They have a hell of a PR managment.
Some apple users now actually believe this is all about a superb feature hidden within their iphone...
So what happens to the iphone 7's that are new and are updated to 11.2. They would have slower phone even though their battery and phone are still new?

Now a fraud behavior is a feature??? Apple products are really... What I say?? Really homo like timcookies
simple case by apple , cash out buy new , if you feel like using old phone we will make it no use ...
Foul practice.....we paid for hardware and it should stay as it is.....nobody has any right to change it without consent.....should be sued
Turn down clock speed? So, basically the iphone X with that awesome benchmark will eventually slows down to the level of a midrange phone. Hahaha. There goes your $1000. Lets see how Apple users will defend this one.
I really dont understand the whole hatred... yes apple should let the users know that this is how the phone will slow in future... and I agree replaceable battery is a solution but which phone manufacturer now as moveable battery...
No apple can either maintain the speed and kill the battery in few months/years or slow down the phone and it lasts few more months/years, either way you will have to buy a new one... I would rather go for a slow phone bcoz its not that the phone opens an app with an delay of 30 secs... I am sure the delay is 1-3 seconds max...

Next up, no physical phone. For our next revolutionary innovation, you don't have to visually or physically attend to or maintain a cell phone anymore. It's 2018 and we have for you, our breakthrough innovation, the next big thing.... the iFeeling. With 60% faster processor performance, 40% faster RAM, 75% more light absorption for the camera, it's beyond a receptive feeling anymore. It's beyond the boudaries of a smartphone. It's simply the Feeling of a phone... And as you know, the best things cannot be seen or touched. But they must be felt by our heart.*

This is my usage: one hour of music, occasional video watching, usual phone calls and messages, and a game like boom beach, which isn't a graphic intense game by any measure. So tell me how come a flagship product from Apple failed in 14 months with just the kind of my usage? Even my other phone s6 edge(bought nine months before 6s) is still going great and never complained of my usage. Forget about flagships, even basic smartphones won't die so soon when used like i did.
