Vegetaholic, 04 Feb 2018Why would someone would not want to use its phone on full potential. Most worrying part is not... moreBeen saying this in so many threads now, since we have been over this same discussion so many times now here. But once more:
Do a simple google search for "battery issue shutdown" + model name and you will find that this happens to _all_ phone models, no matter the brand. Its how it works when the battery can no longer handle the power peaks. It doesn't matter if it hasn't happen to _your_ phone, it has't happen to every old iPhone either. But when the battery health bad enough it will happen. One of many many examples you will find:
"I had the same trouble with my S4. I did some tests and tried to figure out what was trigging this "sudden death", and it seamed to happen when the phone was working harder. I.e. with photos, games, performance tests etc. It always turned off. After reading forums and searching around for similar problems and solutions, I concluded that the problem had to be the battery. Offcourse the store where I purchased my S4, came with the standard solution of factory reset. That did not help. So I got a new battery, and now it works like a charm."
It's the oldest trick in the book and we all know the real reasons that Apple does this.
They slow down the older iPhones so that users buy the newer models.

There is a thing called thermal throttling. It measures how hot the chip is and according to that, it throttles. Realistically the worst thing that could happen would be that it throttles down to the "usual" performance of the phone. No crashes whatsoever.
Terryeesti, 04 Feb 2018I am very surprised that 27% believe Apple's BS! I would take stable phone ower faster phone any day!
If I really have to chose: a) make my phone stable but a Little bit slower or B) make my phone faster, but make it shut down randomly.
Are 75% of people so stupid that They prefer to have a phone that randomly boots and shutdowns? I can not understand that some people Are so stupid... well if They want to habe unstable phone... They can have it!
I am an Apple and Android user and don't believe Apples BS but I also know Android aren't that great either all the time, I've had plenty of different brands and yes I nitpick a lot but there isn't a perfect handset.
LG are just nasty to use , Samsung are as slow and buggy as hell, Moto, well not much to say about moto other than only good for basic usage :-) every device has a weak point
To be honest, I am just so glad I don't have to chose. Both options are bad - slow or unreliable, pick your poison :(
wait till apple plants a bug in iphone update that causes it to throttle even when it is not in use. then people will understand why they introduced this feature. everyone, ready your credit cards to buy yourselves a new iphone.
Apple fans would defend an iphone that releases toxic gas if someone from apple comes out and says "But do you really want to live till you're old and everything hurts, its much better this way ! "
The fact that this throttling was hidden somewhere in the user agreement(or w/e) and not announced officially speaks enough. I mean who doesn't want their phone to lag like a galaxy from 2010.
Just think: The iPhone X costs over a thousand f'cking dollars and Apple would have slowed it down had we not called them out on it.
Apologizing for corporations worsens your grip on independent thought, calling them out on their BS is worth every second of your time.
Anonymous, 04 Feb 201873%, in fact, don't even use an iPhone lelWhy would we want to when there are better alternatives out there.
"I am very surprised that 27% believe Apple's BS! "
You're wrong on this. This is not believing Apple's bullshit, it's just that some people are willing to trade CPU power over longer battery life. That's usually people who don't give a rat's ass about gaming or youtubing.
my 6 year old android never had unexpected shutdowns or extremely bad battery life. of course it has degraded but, can't understand what apple is talking about.
Is this another way to convince their fans? to say they care?
LG superfan, 04 Feb 2018Same here using G2 since 2014 but no slowdown, shutdown and battery is degraded greatly but st... moreThe LG G2 is one of the best phones ever made, buddy. LG never made another phone as good as that till date. It was a total beast. Highest specs of it's time. Best battery life. Awesome camera. Everything was phenomenal.
I wish LG would re-release the same phone with latest specs & cams. I'd buy it in an instant.
My 5 years old S3 did not suffer with unexpected shutdown, sure it was laggy as Samsung skins in the past were not that good. I do not understand why there should be any unexpected shutdown. Battery life should take a hit but that's about it.
apple's battery life in their phones are almost below average when new, so i can understand them throttling older ones after a few years to balance it out.
They are covering up one of their worst points of their phones.

I never encountered unexpected shutdown and my phone's battery is more than 3 years old and how can slowdown solve this problem
i have a heavily used xperia z1 from 2013 and its battery degraded very bad compared to howbit was new. but still holding up and goving me 4h+ screen on if i use wifi.
i never faced unexpected shutdowns or slow downs. in fact its as fast as the latest xperia models with very minor slow due to very old rom and 92% used internal storage.
