I understand that Qualcomm is worth over $100B but wow at those court fees and charges. it's difficult for the average person (like myself) to even comprehend that amount of money. That is a serious chunk of cash to be changing hands.
I m using Snapdragon after using KIRIN. Snapdragon is a joke infront of the Kirin.
Kirin SoCs are absolutely breeze.
thgun2, 18 Jan 2017And what does your mobile run on !!!on that note one runs on a snapdragon chip (battery life sux) and another on exynos and I don't have to charge it more than once for a days usage. so yeah Qualcomm snapdragon has poor power management I don't care who says what about it Qualcomm chips are cr@p.
Anti-competitiveness. I know one other company doing the same thing. Patenting everything and suing everyone. They reduce competitors' ability and incentive to innovate technology. Pretty much kills technology development altogether. All smartphone looks the same due to this.
Bradrpvtec, 18 Jan 2017Exynos has been very good to me so personally any chipset will do as long as it can perform ok... moreBut exynos the reason all mobile has quick charge 3, except s7 & note 7 lol
No one want wait just because out of battery
AMR M., 18 Jan 2017Take that qualcomm hahahaha And what does your mobile run on
Exynos has been very good to me so personally any chipset will do as long as it can perform ok and keep my battery from dying too soon.
Qualcomm we will never forget how you ruined most of 2015 flagships with you damn processor (Snapdragon 810) . you got what you deserve.
not the whole news ..... qualcomm bribed apple for a non competitive ....
If any of the allegations is true then we've seen one of the most professional mafia in the technology world.
Sue Qualcomm until there's nothing else to sue! They deserve it. But encouraging competition is the key. If that money could help new companies emerge, this would be good.
voidx, 18 Jan 2017Unfortunately the only alternative are Exynos chipsets. MediaTek is rubbish.Unfortunately? They are amazing! Midrange 7870 is the best for battery life! High-end 8890 is very powerful (just has a slightly slower GPU). But I wonder what does Qualcomm do about Samsung. Do they tax them when they put their own Exynos chips?

Unfortunately the only alternative are Exynos chipsets.
MediaTek is rubbish.
The competition is already worst.. mediatek produce low quality chips.. i personally will never use a mobile without qualcomm chip in it..
