Samsung Suffers Sales Fallout from App Throttling Scandal

Samsung’s market dominance in its home country is suffering a blow from a recent app throttling scandal caused by one of its built-in performance-enhancing apps on its Galaxy S22 phone series. The Game Optimising System (GOS) app was recently found to be responsible for slowing down around 10,000 non-gaming apps, including popular apps Netflix and TikTok. The scandal has reportedly affected sales of the Galaxy S22, part of the company’s high-end S line.
