The iPhone got a really bad review here, but the Ax chips are miles ahead of the competition if these rumors are true. When a giant like Qualcomm can't make an off-the-shelf 64-bit chip work without overheating, yet the custom Apple A7 launched successfully two years ago now, I have clearly underestimated Apple's achievement. I used to be a major ihater, but maybe I was wrong.
MaRyUss, 24 Jan 2015Apple uses Samsung processor;)Apple uses TSMC these days, like Qualcomm.

That, though, does not mean anything. Yes Apple has achieved the best optimisation software-hardware. But keep in mind that Android OS is a younger OS and I strongly believe that we can judge it and be harsh judges from v5 and on.
Androiders, 24 Jan 2015Hey....Samsung is the maker of Apple's A9.So Samsung is the bestSamsung isn't the best Apple designs the chip Samsung own designed chip performs lower then Qualcomm so proof that Samsung can't design anything Well
Gsanchez923, 24 Jan 2015Yes Apple is the best but Samsung make the CPU for Apple x_x Samsung makes them but Apple designs it

Coming on GSMA news section is about looking for latest hardware, so logically getting the latest phone each time you can and not getting a phone to keep it 3+ years
ljames13, 24 Jan 2015they should just stick to exynos. they've already gotten to the point where it's superior to s... moreSuperior at heating and much much much worse at developing and when Samsung stops updates, you're screwed
Hah, i thought there was supposed to be no problem. Scammers. All of them
Shellshock, 24 Jan 2015Thats why Apple is the bestYes Apple is the best but Samsung make the CPU for Apple x_x
asdfgh, 24 Jan 2015why is the modified version provided only to samsung? There are other firms like sony,htc and lg???I think it won't be only Samsung, but since Samsung is the biggest customer here, so they get served first / in priority.
(Samsung is selling more phones than any other manufacturer after Apple despite all trolling comments)
Shellshock, 24 Jan 2015Thats why Apple is the bestHey....Samsung is the maker of Apple's A9.So Samsung is the best
AllurngRaja, 24 Jan 2015LG, and some other OEM devices also facing the problems.From the very same article, below it says other parties which you mentioned have denied any issue at all.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 is featured in a number of already announced top-tier smartphones, including the LG G Flex2 and the Xiaomi Mi Note Pro. Those manufacturers have similarly denied facing complications with the SoC.
[deleted post]Look who's talking ;a shamesung user. hahahahahahahahahahah Even korean people are buying iphone now.
Anonymous, 24 Jan 2015I never really understood this. Unlike exynos 5410 every other exynos released was faster than... moreWell personally I'll get he Snapdragon because of the near infinite developement support (Samsung doesn't release their source code) so that I can get rid of Touchjizz..
MaRyUss, 24 Jan 2015Apple uses Samsung processor;)It's Apple design; not Samsung...Samsung is assembling the cip
Shellshock, 24 Jan 2015Thats why Apple is the bestbecause they've been facing not only more problems but also more serious problems which ontop of that surfaced when it was already too late since the devices have already been released? don't see how that's better, that's horrible actually. apple's smartphone section has proven to be far less reliable in the past.
