LG, Samsung and Motorola state that they do not slow down phones with older batteries

Android Phone makers take a dig at Apple's blunders.

Read more about LG, Samsung and HTC's response to Apple's performance/battery issues.

No of course not. Android is so fragmented and unsecure and it slows down by itself.

Well that's totally not true. Have you even used stock andriod? Because anything else is basically the equal to Lenevo/Asus/Dell/HP/etc using there own special version of Windows that adds bloatware. Stock Andriod is by far superior. Android is even encrypted out of the box as is Apple.

My opinion, and not one most news sites are keen to jump onto is that Apple's mistake was lack of transparency only.

When I have raised the possibility of a phone actually shutting down instead, nobody has been able to come and tell me that was was a better outcome than it slowing.

It is there actual evidence that the slowing wasn't actually necessary
I haven't seen that claim made yet, perhaps someone else has ?

What I see is apple apologising for the lack of transparency, but not for doing it in the first place.
Which is one of two possibilities.
Either as the news would like to have us believe that this was entirely profit motivated, and apple don't give a damn.
Or that phones could could actually fail to work correctly, and apple were right.

I have seen no evidence to disprove the latter yet.
