I guess you are just a teenager.
Well, this is good for Trump, he will definitely agree with Qualcomm, hahaha.

I meant that the company which makes costliest phones uses android eg Vertu. Like you said android is about diversity so his argument about android being only for cheapskate couldn't be more wrong
Apple worked with Samsung, both ended up suing each other.
Apple worked with Qualcomm, both sued each other.
Apple worked with Imagination Technologies, both are heading to suing each other.
There seems to be a pattern when working with Apple.
dumb move for Qualcomm, all other brands using their chips will be affected by this, all this just to take down Apple? seems like there are too many companies obsessed with Apple's butt
Ravuh, 04 May 2017And after 30 months all of which is probably $25 bucks+ per, your phone is obsolete. lolAfter 12 months we can switch it out to the newer model if we want. But I hope apple and Samsung will be banned.
I have no love of the iPhone, but a lose here for Apple is a loss for all companies other than Qualcomm.

When looking at non-custom phones, Apple has what? 3 models on the market? And Android has how many? So which platform would most likely have the most expensive phone? And the cheapest? And the largest? And the smallest? The prettiest? The fastest? The most endurable? So yeah, if you find one or more elements of a phone the most important and want to take that to extremes, I'm pretty sure you'll need an Android. And if you're just looking at bangs for your buck, I'm also pretty sure you'll need an Android.

The costliest phone is Android and I don't think they Target iPhone users. Also s7 costs as much as iPhone and it sold 55 million. So I suppose more than that number disagree with you
Qualcomm charges different prices for the same chip depending on the final selling price of the finished product, which is absolutely ludicrous. The modem is a small part of the finished phone; industrial design, build quality, OS, UI, and app selection all have far more bearing on the market price of the handset. Qualcomm is going to get kicked to the curb, and similar lawsuits from other phone makers will probably follow.
