Samsung Galaxy S22/S21/S20/S10 models no longer compatible for Geekbench, reason apps throttling

Samsung S23 major upgrade

Samsung Galaxy S22 series came with a pro-grade camera, powerful features, and performance set the new standard for premium smartphones. But you may not be able to really enjoy its benefits while playing games and using other popular applications.


According to the new information, Geekbench is taking direct action against Samsung. The benchmark database said that it is delisting the entire Galaxy S22 series from the Geekbench Browser effective today.

Additionally, the list of devices that Geekbench is delisting also includes the previous S-series phones, such as Galaxy S21, S20, and S10 phones. However, Galaxy Note and A-series devices will remain unchanged, as they aren’t affected in the testing.

Geekbench decided to take this step after One UI 4’s GOS software throttles thousands of apps to maintain performance and improve battery life. However, Samsung recently claimed to release a future update that will add the ability to control gaming performance directly.

Still, Geekbench is delisting the device permanently, even following a March 2022 security patch that fixes the issue. So none of the phones removed today will be relisted on the site later.

Recently, a Geekbench responds on this matter to Android Police and offered a statement. The statement is as follows:

Earlier this week, we were made aware of Samsung’s Game Optimizing Service (GOS) and how it throttles the performance of games and applications. GOS decides to throttle (or not to throttle) applications using application identifiers and not application behavior. We view this as a form of benchmark manipulation as major benchmark applications, including Geekbench, are not throttled by this service.
