Samsung will pay $ 10 to owners of Galaxy S4 for tricking the benchmark
In 2013, Samsung was caught overestimating points in tests of the video accelerator and processor. As a result, the metrics showed more performance than is possible in real use. Six years later, this came around to the company: it should pay 10 to each owner of the Galaxy S4.
Thus, Samsung settled a long-standing class action lawsuit for 13.4 million. Of these, only 2.8 million will be directed to payments to former owners of flagship smartphones, another 10.6 million companies will have to pay if the situation repeats over the next three years.
This may seem like a small amount, but this is a standard result for such claims. The person who became one of the initiators of the lawsuit will receive 7500.
