Samsung will pay $ 10 to owners of old smartphones

Samsung agreed to pay $ 10 to the owners of the Galaxy S4 smartphone, which was released in 2013. She did this as part of a class action lawsuit filed in an American court.

Galaxy S4 users filed a lawsuit against Samsung after they found out that the manufacturer was cheating with benchmark results. The smartphone recognized that it runs an application with a benchmark, and enabled increased performance, which was not available during normal use.

The scam was revealed in 2014. The court took the side of the plaintiffs and decided to recover 13.4 million dollars from the company. The decision said that Samsung was trying to mislead users about the real performance of the Galaxy S4 in order to increase smartphone sales. Samsung lawyers argued that the Galaxy S4 did not have software that would increase the performance of the processor, video chip and other components, depending on which application was running.

In the near future, Samsung will contact the owners of the Galaxy S4 by e-mail and let you know how to get the due refund. The payout is likely to apply only to US residents.
