You don't fight the monopoly by punishing theguy who reached the summit. You fight the monopoly by not burdening the small man to compete with the big guys.

Hoffman, 28 Dec 2016Kirin 955-960 are far better than QS 820-821. Now let the HATE roll. I'm prepared for it!you are wrong. Maybe cpu is 3-5% better BUT GPU is definetely 10-15% worse than Adreno 530. In conclusion Snapdragon is king.
Alien , 29 Dec 2016854M is pocket change to them. A huge amount of android phones out there run their processors.... moreDude, not all Chinese branded phones are bad. Xiaomi, Huawei, leeco, lenovo, moto ( owned by lenovo), Asus ( taiwanese) are Chinese brands with very good reputations you know...
NO NAME, 29 Dec 2016 Which Means ? For Me As A Gamer And Planning To Buy A New phone This Coming 2017 I Need A P... moreIf you want lag free gaming, might as well buy a phone with a powerful Gpu ( adreno 530 in the sd820/821 as an example) and one with a FHD resolution (Xperia XZ, xiaomi Mi note 2, xiaomi Mi 5/5s etc.) . But if you want to have a good VR experience, choose one with at least a QHD resolution, example: Galaxy s7, s7 edge,LG G5, pixel XL and etc.
Estimu, 29 Dec 2016so i guess if nobody else wants to say it... omg $854 million is a heck of a lot of money!

I for one would never buy a phone with a MediaTek processor or a... Huawei bleah!
I respect myself too much to buy a chinese brand phone.
"QUALCOMM FINED.." They are in good company. a*ple fined 150m for ebook price rigging scandal , and 500m Italian tax fraud + 13billion Irish tax tango. Hope a*ple aint involved here, its their territory. Wonder why their chips are different, hope its not some . restricted to them only kind of modification. ?
Like they care, QC has enough political connections they can stomp any whining from other countries.

Anonymous, 28 Dec 2016I read and the benchmark shows SD820 is better than the Kirin 955? :OSD820 is better than 955 in single core performance and in gpu but 960 is waaaaaayyyyyy better than sd820
so i guess if nobody else wants to say it... omg $854 million is a heck of a lot of money!
and it even says that it's getting sued in other countries as well so that's a lot of $ going to the drain... i'm curious how much will it afect the company though (seems like a pretty profitable one)
mir, 28 Dec 2016And then most games run smoothly on the kirin chipsets while being choppy on the SD ones.How about no. People say 820 throttles and drops to 30-40 FPS while Kirin in reality can't even deliver 30 properly this from a guy using p9. It's performance is in neighbourhood of sd652 not 821 let alone the processor used by Samsung in s7. The main reason their 'flagship' has 1080p resolution

Shaun Moroz, 28 Dec 2016Still doesn't change the fact that it's better. You mad?Lol no. The latest snapdragon is behind the latest exynos and kirin. Get with the times.
Shaun Moroz, 28 Dec 2016Still doesn't change the fact that it's better. You mad?Well..seen just from a processor standpoint, a Mediatek X27 is the fastest processor. It scores best in synthetic benchmarks ( maybe due to the Decacore ). As everyone knows, the GPU of the HiSilicon and Mediatek SoCs are not usable in demanding games. The Kirin 955 still had a Mali MP4 ( 4 core ) which is mid-low level. Seen as a whole package, the best processor is the Apple A10 fusion is the best SoC but in the android world, the SD821 is still the best.
