App acceleration is nothing new to the ears. We have heard it several times in recent years. The limitation is also present between networks and streaming applications. But between phones, we don’t hear much anymore unless it’s very significant like this on OnePlus phones. A recent report tells us that there are applications that have been blacklisted so that they do not access the full power of their chipset. OnePlus generally uses premium specs in its flagship phones and can still offer them at affordable prices.
The OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro launched earlier this year. The two are the brand’s latest flagship offering. They are fast, but now we are learning that drives are slowing down the performance of many applications.
In a report from Anandtech, the OnePlus 9 Pro is said to be not reaching its full potential. With the Snapdragon 888, apps are not at their peak performance at all. Yes, OxygenOS allows benchmarking applications, but there is a limit.
Apparently OnePlus has blacklisted some apps so they don’t take full advantage of the power of the smartphone. According to our source, the reason for this is to allow for longer battery life.
Some applications that have been found to be limited include Microsoft’s Office suite and some pre-installed Google applications. Chrome and Twitter have been mentioned in the report. We also noticed that the Candy Crush and Adobe apps in the app list are limited.
