NRM: "After strong accusations, Apple admitted they slow down iPhones after a year of use. While their intentions could be in the right place, their secrecy has certainly left a sour taste in consumers’ mouths…"
No. They're wrong on both counts.
A lot of phone brands so paranoid and greedy not to offer buyers' replaceable batteries for the mere reason to sell the next new phone.
Was it not obvious Apple were doing this ? Same thing with other phone companies too
erm.....nope. i can name one phone company that doesn't.
HTC simply stop supporting older devices. they dont force the newer versions of android onto a device even if it is capable of running it. if one wants the latest and greatest android there is the option to root and install custom roms and at this point its fairly straightforward. but this is all at the owners discretion. not the company forcing an update that deliberately slows down your phone.
A couple of years ago I had an ipad 4th gen that ran perfectly, it was asking to be updated for a long time, I got sick of seeing the notification so I went threw with the update and it became so slow it was unuseable, never again....
No one has a right to slow a product down especially when you paid for it to perform.
Can't believe people will hand over money and just say "yes master"
you clearly never met an apple fanboy before have you.
I think the idea is good, but should be offered as a mode in the settings. And let me choose if I want higher battery or better performance.
