How to Disable GOS (Game Optimization Service) on Samsung Smartphones
To summarize, numerous smartphone companies are on the market, but one stands out above the rest: Samsung. Although LG is on the same level, they have fallen behind since it suspended its smartphone division. As a giant in the industry, Samsung has always stood out as a unique company.
They have come up with some fresh and innovative ideas, one of which is the Game Optimization Service (GOS). GOS is a service that Samsung introduced to balance gaming performance on their phones. The service allows the phone’s processor to be effectively allocated to games and ensures that users do not experience lag. However, as it delivers a lot of annoying notifications, a surprising number of Samsung users want to disable them but need to know how. Therefore, we will discuss how to disable GOS here.
How to Disable Samsung’s Game Optimization Service
The Galaxy Store describes the Game Optimization Service (GOS) as a dedicated gaming service. Its main objective is to effectively balance the phone’s operation and gaming to ensure that you have a memorable gaming experience. As part of its optimization, GOS includes the Game Launcher, Game Tools, Game Tuner, and Game Box Launcher apps. Concerning these apps, GOS facilitates app management, CPU, and device optimization while gaming.
However, it begs the question: even though the service is so effective, why would people want to stop using it? We have found that GOS drains the phone’s battery, introduces annoying notifications, and has a few touchscreen problems. Now that Samsung users are experiencing these problems, they are opting to turn off GOS, despite knowing its benefits of it. For this reason, below are the steps to disable it.
Note: There are plenty of ways to disable GOS on Samsung. Here, we are using ADB App Control to do so. Also, remember to make a backup before proceeding with the following steps.
