Reuters exclusively reported that Samsung Electronics’ flagship Galaxy S22 smartphone has taken a battering from reports of hobbled performance and has seen carriers halve its price at home in South Korea just weeks since its launch, hurting its image as an iPhone rival.

Consumers have complained—and even filed a class-action lawsuit—about the handset maker advertising what it called its most powerful smartphone yet, with scant detail about performance management software that they say drastically slows the premium device when using processor-intensive applications.
