Re: Wrong Metric

But you cannot keep the performance, the battery simply cannot supply the needed current to run the CPU at those clock speed, the alternative is the device powers down which is what they did before the update.

Say a device had a degraded battery that causes it to shut down below 40%.

100% - 40%:

Pre-update: CPU at full clock speed, device as normal.

After-update: CPU at full clock speed, device as normal.

39% - 1%:

Pre-update: Device powers down.

After-update: Device continues running but at reduced CPU speed.

How is the pre-update better?
