Andrpoid and Samsung is way more advanced than Apple, having pioneered finger print sensor on smart phones way before Apple, as well as being able to manufacture everything in house in case of Samsung. Apple is still just a re-packager, totally dependent on Android manufacturers like Samsung, LG, Sharp, Sony, Foxconn for all it's parts and final assembly. Android beats Apple by a mile!!
[deleted post] You are not very smart ; ehh? I was talking about the touch id. This year all the android phones managed to put a functional touch id.(Samsung ; lg ; sony)
Anonymous, 22 Oct 2015Apple bought the touch ID technology. They didn't develop it. They bought it from where? From the aliens maybe.

Anonymous, 22 Oct 2015$2 billion is chump change in the tech world. $2 billion is only enough to cover the expenses ... moreAs a reference, the current AMOLED technology from Samsung took $10 billion in R&D to create.
Again, $10 billion, and this is just for a single generation's display technology. Other display manufacturers like LG and Japan Display have spent near equal amounts on their technology.
You think Apple with their puny $2 billion R&D budget could have designed every component on their phone if just one component cost $10 billion in R&D?
Time to smell the coffee. Apple is just a repackager.

It's outright ridiculous to say Apple can even make their own technology with a R&D budget that small.
Samsung spends $40 billion in R&D in some years. Intel and IBM also spend close to Samsung's amount.

Hire a bunch of expensive programmers, build large buildings to house these expensive programmers, and there's your 2 billion already.
And this is just software. You haven't spent a single cent toward any hardware technology development, manufacturing or breakthroughs (which Apple isn't exactly famous for). With Apple's humongous profit, they should be spending more like $20 billion instead of measly $2 billion for R&D. Possibly that's why they are falling behind?

Then what how they spend 2 BILLION last year on R&... moreSorry, so called "manufacturing" in high tech industry is more like 90% of the battle to building a an advanced smart phone. Apple can order anything they want from Chinese manufacturers, but if they don't have technology, Apple will not get it. For example, Apple can order curved Amoled screen, but only place they can get it is from Samsung. So they will not have curved amoled screen on iphone. Simple. If some OEM wanted to build an iphone in China today without permission of Apple, it's dead simple. All the tech used by Apple in iphone is already out there, ready for ordering. Mediocre LCD screen , 2GB ram, force touch screen, metal body housing etc etc, all used in iphone, and readily available from multiple Chinese manufacturers. There is nothing special about tech that goes in an iphone. Apple is getting further and further behind the curve in actual tech that goes in a smart phone.
Ale, 20 Oct 2015Urm....you are aware that Apple hasn't used standard of the shelf ARM cores since the A5 serie... moreExactly - then enhanced ARM core design, stealing patents from University of Wisconsin. Now they were sued and lost to University of Wisconsin for patent infringement.

The only thing Apple doesn't have is in house manufacturing. I think you meant to say that Apple don't produce any raw hardware themselves. They sell too many iDevices to do this.
In any case, indeed, Apple do acquire companies and use their tech, but that's how it works in the business world. Surely they didn't point a gun to their heads but instead offered a healthy sum of money to buy those companies, to which they agree to sell.

If Apple really did design everything, then the iPhone would cost thousands to build. They would have to pay for the exorbitant R&D (Apple has one of the lowest R&D in the world) and the manufacturing costs of a new technology that wouldn't benefit from economies of scale.
Apple is just a repackager. Time to smell the coffee.
