What does Jony Ive's comment on LCD vs AMOLED have anything to do with this article. Even my comment wasn't geared towards the technological differences of the two displays. No where in this article even mentions Jony Ive's names. The underlying premise of this article is business. Re-read the article and see that it was a Samsung Executive expressing the need to have long term contracts with other companies to benefit the business. The Executive even states that Samsung has re-newed discussions with Apple.
I can't believe I have to summarize an article for you. Whether or not Apple needs AMOLED does not change the intent of this article. Now, if an article comes out saying that Apple in fact is the one to initiate such discussions. I will gladly retract my comments.
Anonymous, 24 Nov 2015Incorrect. Other manufacturers are moving to Samsung's OLED tech, which is forcing Apple to do... moreI was not making a technical statement. I was making a article comprehension statement. Re-read the article, did it say anywhere that Apple has re-newed discussions of partnering with Samsung to utilize their displays. No, it clearly states the Samsung representative expresses that it would be beneficial for Samsung business wise to have Apple use their displays.
Even if you feel very strongly against LCD and rather use an AMOLED and though the technology is better, that does not refute the underlying premise of the article. Do not make this about something that it is not. This is purely business.
Apple will only move to OLED when the technology is finally on par with IPS LCD. Samsung users have been beta tester with their bad screen.

Also, don't think Apple couldn't be as good or better than Samsung at semiconductor manufacturing, there simply is no need for Apple to be in that part of the industry.

"Designing a fab process is more intellectually challenging than designing an soc.
An Soc is just a board with components from different manufavturers. Apple doesn't design the components that go into their Soc except the CPU, which is just a mild custom form of stock arm cores.
All the other components are designed by other companies. Apple just buys them and puts them into the Soc sockets. Not difficult."
All Crapple does is look at what other companies have, buy that tech, then position them to fit in their phone. They haven't designed any proprietary tech in ages.
Anonymous, 25 Nov 2015They moved some to tmsc... Maid lol. You sure have some funny fantasiesMaster: Please make me some coffee
Maid: Here you go sir
Pays maid salary.
Apple: Please make me some panels
Samsung: Here you go sir
Pays Samsung some fee.
Pretty similar. Unless you think making panels for someone makes you the client/employer?
monsterduc1000, 25 Nov 2015Beautifully said!!!Oh wow, actually believing that a 6-wide Cyclone core is "a mild redesign" compared to 3-wide reference Cortex A57/A72.

Where did you find a vomparison of iOS vs Android crashes? Please don't post the outdated iOS8 vs Lollipop comparison.

All Apple does is provide the layout of where to put stuff, Samsung handles all the tech. Look it up if you don't believe me.

Not to mention the dramatic higher number of crashes ios has.
Either admit reality or find someone else to trcll cause those lies don't work on me
Apple uses same display as a 100$ android phone? are you joking here? Apple uses a led backlit IPS panel, which has huge nits of brightness... best in lcd class contrasts. The display mate awarded ipad airs to have the most accurate colors in any lcd.. now talking about lcds in android.. except the top flagships from htc,lg or sony.. no lcds even come close to iphones lcd tech... thanks to lg

And I have a 2011 galaxy nexus running lollipop at least, though it is slightly slow sometimes. This particular phone has been abused to the point I think I damaged the internals though.
Samsung is moving to Quantum Dots display soon . So outdated display will be left to apple. Same like nowadays apple is using old and cheap lcd display that $100 android phones use.
Apple should go with lg's oled displays. I have an lg oled tv and it's amazing.
Noo, Samsung, don't do it. You are killing your main strategic advantage for smartphones. If the iPhones rock Amoled, you will sell more displays, but far less phones.
