• There is a Samsung Galaxy S23 performance toggle switch to turn off Game Optimizing Service (GOS).
  • This feature carries over from the Galaxy S22, which went through an intense throttling controversy.
  • Time will tell if the toggle is necessary on the Galaxy S23, but it is there.

In 2022, Samsung faced a lot of flak when it came to light that it was throttling games on the Galaxy S22 series via its Game Optimizing Service (GOS) but not throttling benchmarking apps. In essence, this allowed for artificial scores on benchmarks that users could sustain in the real world. In response to this, Samsung pushed an update within One UI that allowed users to turn off GOS manually. This allowed access to the full power of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor (as well as the Exynos 2200 model) in games.

Today, Samsung took the wraps off the 2023 Galaxy S phones. Now, Android Authority has learned that the Samsung Galaxy S23 has a GOS performance toggle as well, which appears to be exactly the same as what we saw on the Galaxy S22. Check out a screenshot below.
