GoNS, 17 Apr 2016Sooner or later most Apple fans will switch to Samsung and admit it's better for a simple fact... moreNope Samsuck just sucks, iOS is what keeping Apple users loyal to iPhone NOT HARDWARE!
Dr. Danger, 16 Apr 2016Just wait for some time they will be beaten by that craps.Yeah it's been years and haters keep waiting :D
Lord Petyr Techwiz, 16 Apr 2016I'm actually interested to see which phone gets crowned for having the best display in 2017.It will still be either the note or s lineup because i am sure they would still have higher resolution displays.
Sooner or later most Apple fans will switch to Samsung and admit it's better for a simple fact ,Apple isn't innovative and it purchases all parts for its iphones from other companies such as LG,Sony,Samsung,sharp,Broadcom,Qualcomm and many others companies search for yourself!. I think iPhone should be named iAssembly

Anonymous, 16 Apr 2016Apple did not design all to parts of the SoC, thats is correct. They do use Imagination Techno... moreThe 810 uses many smaller cores because Qualcomm is targeting the more cores = better crowd. It doesn't mean Qualcomm can't do the same thing Apple is doing. Designing CPUs is relatively simple.
Also, Apple has nothing to do with the NVMe development in their SoC. The technology was developed by companies which included Samsung. Apple only chose it as their memory controller on their SoC. They didn't design it or develop it. They just tested it and said it was "good" and ordered a batch.
I think you have the wrong impression about how tech progress works.
Manufacturers like Samsung design and develop technology. Apple doesn't develop anything. They test different components from different manufacturers and pick and choose what to buy based on performance, price and quantity.
You can not design a technology and then tell an advanced manufacturer to fab it. It doesn't work that way. It's too costly on both sides and wastes too much time. The manufacturer would be spending nearly a year building the machines to make your tech.
In reality, the manufacturer designs and develops the tech and markets it to repackagers like Apple. This way, the repackager doesn't have to spend R&D and the manufacturer can bring the price down from economies of scale by selling the same technology to multiple repackagers. This then increases the profit margins of the repackagers.

Applesexual, 16 Apr 2016An SoC is just a chip with components. It doesn't mean Apple designed the components that went... moreApple did not design all to parts of the SoC, thats is correct. They do use Imagination Technologies reference design GPUs (but have also used custom versions of those). But saying CPU design is easy just complete BS :) Designing a relatively big CPU core with high IPC to be used for mobiles is anything but easy as we have seen with SD 810 heat/throlling issues for example. And Apple is really good at it as we have seen for the last couple of years. Samsung on the other hand have only use reference designs until its M1 CPU core.
And Apple does many other things aswell, like its NVMe memory controller that puts its storage performance well ahead of the competition.
Apple might not design as many components as Samsung (no other company does) but again, Samsung is a conglomerate company. It is numerous companies under the same umbrella. They develop components to be sold to other companies, it is just one part of Samsung many businesses (and why they still continue to sell components to a competitor like Apple) . Apple on the other hand just designs and customize components for their own devices.
Ray, 16 Apr 2016Companies, including Samsung, acquire other companies all the time to bring new knowledge inho... moreIndeed they do, and even before Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge for that matter. But, the question really is: did you read or hear anything such as Samsung in anyway, bashing Sony as a company or one or more of its products whatsoever?

Just wait for JDI advanced amoled panel to be mass produced. The amoled panel panel will be far more advanced than any other existing amoled panel.
I want to ask Apple fans, what do you want? A Ips retina or a Oled? Or it use anything it doesn't matter?
Please don't lie.
Anonymous, 16 Apr 2016You're probably confusing them with Samsung. Samsung is a slimy deceitful company.
http://... moreThat article is sensationalist clickbait. It's no surprise that tools like you fall for it.
Samsung got to 14nm way before TSMC 16nm, so are you suggesting Samsung has a time machine in their possession?
Samsung hired that engineer from TSMC way before any company starting working on nodes under 32nm, so it's impossible for the engineer that Samsung hired to have known how TSMC was developing 16nm nodes.
In fact, TSMC isn't even bringing the case to Samsung, because they know they don't have a case.
The case that TSMC brought to the courts was specifically targeting that engineer that worked at Samsung, because he worked at Samsung earlier than when the non-compete terms expires. It has nothing to do with Samsung or IP theft. It was just a desperate PR attempt to attack Samsung, as TSMC just reported a sizable profit decline this quarter due to being behind Samsung.
Anonymous, 16 Apr 2016Apple has acquired alot of hardware companies over time, like P. A. Semi (CPU) and LuxVue Tech... moreAn SoC is just a chip with components. It doesn't mean Apple designed the components that went into the SoC.
All of the components in Apple's SoC were designed by other companies aside from the CPU, and CPU designs isn't difficult contrary to popular belief.
The main things you have to account for are size of the cores, amount of cores and manufacturing node size. Everything else is irrelevant save for bottlenecks that could reduce performance.
Also, LuxVue was a very small company that had only 21 patents in MicroLED technology. At most, all of their technology will be small additions to a manufacturer's MicroLED technology that don't interfere with the manufacturer's strict design rules.
The myth that repackagers develop technology is a myth. Regardless of whether Apple uses OLED or LCD, the underlying technology will be mostly the work of the manufacturers. Apple might include a very small substrate here and there that was compatible with the manufacturer's fabs, but it'll be a very small and insignificant piece of the development.
Think about it. Apple has been bashing OLED in the beginning, but now that Samsung has figured out how to make OLED superior to LCD and now cheaper, all of a sudden Apple is now moving to OLED. That doesn't sound like a company that did any work with the development of a tech.
The AMOLED in the iPhone will be 100% designed by Samsung.
