Chaitanya, 22 Jul 2015Apple designs their own chips. TSMC and Samsung manufacture them. Designing and Manufacturing ... moreTrue but Samsung invented 14nm chip. Samsung is the only 14nm chip manufacturer in the world. So, Apple just design but have no real technology to make it happen.
John Smith123, 22 Jul 2015Yes they pay royalties to qualcomm for patents qualcomm engineered and discovered. However... moreTechnically his right.Apple designs their own chips everyone knows that but they wouldnt have any idea how to without buying a patent perhaps for one of the processors design from another company or the dye for the chip and how to apply it.
Ethos-Evoss, 22 Jul 2015so IF they has sky rocket bunch of money why they don't start their own manufacturing h?True.

Oh so qualcom doing crap lately and blame those 10% employees .. punishment?

WP are heaters. I have used SD variants of Android phones as well. Just junk.
Two years back, they was no competition to them. But now, Samsung, MediaTek and Apple will simply crush Qualcomm.
iPhones get rarely heated as much as SD phones and Exynos does have heating issue but it gives great performance as a trade-off, so its acceptable.
John Smith123, 22 Jul 2015Apple designing exactly what? The shell?
Clothes designing and oem machines are very differ... moreBy same logic, what is Samsung doing apart from making a skin ? They are borrowing designs from ARM and just making some clusters. Also, whatever RAM components or Storage components Samsung is making, Even Transcend, Kingston, Sandisk etc. so many companies are also making them. What's so great with Samsung ? They make the shell ?
See ? I can also make ridiculous statements.
They should have went in with 14-nm for Snapdragon 810, but they took Intel like tic-toc approach which failed badly in the mobile world. Mediatek is eating the low and mid-end market, Apple designs it own, now even Samsung wants to design its own chip. I hope Snapdragon 820 wins them back the lost respect.
Thats the price to pay for their mistake on the SD810. Very incompetent.
Anonymous, 21 Jul 2015There is nothing to hate Samsung. It just that you guys make it sound like every technology Sa... moreYes they pay royalties to qualcomm for patents qualcomm engineered and discovered.
However, it doesn't mean that samsung doesn't innovate or revolutionize a design process. It's a co-operative process between global companies like ibm, samsing, toshiba, tsm, broadcom, and qualcomm.
Apple.does not play a role in engineering cuter techonology. Apple.is.just the end product of hard work done by others.
Apple designing exactly what? The shell?
Clothes designing and oem machines are very different fields. Any somewhat competent company can buy from samsung, install parts, and then install.a Linux based operating system. Heck I can build my own computer and install Linux myself.
Apple's role is multi-faceted but being computer designing genius is not one component of apple's dna.
i work here for 3 years i guest that i will go back to my old job!!! stripper
Mediatek > qcomm in mid and low range.
I am using mediatek for 2 years , its just fabulous. Before that using qcomm in same range and did'nt like the performance.

Same here. Apple designs and Samsung produces those designs. Samsung is also capable of their own designs.
Don't get confused.
Anyone can manufacture Apple's chips but iPhones are selling at the rate of 50 million per quarter minimum, Only Samsung is big enough to meet such demands.
