they should just stick to exynos. they've already gotten to the point where it's superior to snapdragon.
AnonD-209536, 24 Jan 2015Apple uses Samsung processor;)Apple uses custom made Ax processors assembly by Samsung, so Apple rules

Anonymous, 24 Jan 2015I never really understood this. Unlike exynos 5410 every other exynos released was faster than... moreI have used both same devices of Exynos and Snapdragon and I would would vouch for the Snapdragon anyday. Once the device gets old and the phone memory becomes full with lot of apps running in background Exynos starts shuttering badly. I have used the S4 i9505 and S5 prime and in camparison to their exynos counterparts they are way ahead. So maybe on paper they seem to be fast but on real test they are no match.
why is the modified version provided only to samsung? There are other firms like sony,htc and lg???
I never really understood this. Unlike exynos 5410 every other exynos released was faster than the equivalent snapdragon on the cpu department (which is the most important to opt users). I don't get -also- why they buy socs from Qualcomm. Apart from paying more they get a shoddier chip which gives a bad name to their devices...
For example Note 4 exynos version was as fast as snapdragon 810 devices half a year before their release ...
LG G Flex2 doesn't have have 4 GB RAM! The more RAM the better!
Note 5 will most likely have Snapdragon 820 and 4 GB RAM!
and can sammy actualy produce that many bits of working silicon? usual story, we hear it every big new sammy release, they not going to use sd, exynos for all mods, then as usual, get to release and oh look, sd silicon, and exynos for home market and a few let let internationaly, sammy could still not turn out enough exynos silicon to do them all, their fail rate at fab is very high, you will probably find that the probs are being caused by lte modem bitof soc..
Better to avoid 810 chip. Don't make money for yourself give importance to your loyal customers.
I wish Samsung will have great future in WP. Because Nokia is no more and they are more competition to you from xiaomi,oppo, etc but you will be king in WP as they are no manufacturers much mainly Chinese OEM. A clever man will take right decision. ( Nokia wrongly existed when people are realizing)
Perhaps the overheating soc was not the 810 but in fact an earlier version of the Samsung exclusive version that they are producing.
