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 fell short of the company: it should pay each owner of the Galaxy S4 $ 10.

Thus, Samsung settled a long-standing class action lawsuit for $ 13.4 million. Of these, only $ 2.8 million will be spent on payments to former owners of flagship smartphones, and another $ 10.6 million will have to be paid if the situation repeats itself 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 $ 7,500.
