I'm suspecting that Android sometimes limits my CPU at around 66% when the temperature is too high.

I can see that my Geekbench score is much lower than what it should be:

Even though my CPU isn't supposed to be throttled:

How can one find out whether Android is limiting my CPU, e.g. because the temperature is too high?

I use a Samsung Galaxy S9 with Android 10.

  • Don't you think it's throttled because of low battery? ;)

  • @alecxs good point, though typically the device is slow when warm: cooling it down in a freezer seems to help make it go faster. But I'd definitely would be interesting to know if Android throttles the CPUs in case of low battery. Oct 13, 2021 at 6:10
  • yes definitely. How to proof? I don't know android.stackexchange.com/q/241908
