Kigbunch commented on Twitter: We learned about Samsung (GOS) and how games and applications work under its influence. The GOS service decides which apps and games to slow down in order to optimize CPU and GPU performance during long-term performance. "We see Samsung's move as a manipulation of our test results, which, by re-testing the service-affected handsets (GOS), will reveal a huge difference in performance between these handsets."

The final decision of this website Benchmark in response to Samsung's move was to remove all smartphones affected by the service from its list. Therefore, the performance of the following smartphones will no longer be seen in the list of this website:

  • Galaxy S22, S22 Plus and S22 Ultra
  • Galaxy S21, S21 Plus, S21 Ultra and S21 Fan Edition
  • Galaxy S20, S20 Plus, S20 Ultra, S20 Fan Edition as well as all 5G versions of these phones

  • Samsung Galaxy S10, S10e, S10 Plus, S10 5G and S10 Lite
