LG superfan, 06 Feb 2018If qualcomm gets sold and broadcomm turns snapdragon into sh#tdragon then smartphones are doomedI agree. I am a developer that knows the compiler of A series chipset and Qualcomm. I really don't want to switch to broadcom (their compilers are one of the most annoying, bypassing even Mediatek. as a developer it's a nightmare)

AnonD-659932, 06 Feb 2018No way they're going to sell out. They are positioned to be THE smartphone chip manufacturer a... more10 years is a long time and Qualcomm is small and wouldn't survive 2 more episodes like the snapdragon 810 in the coming 10 years so they have to consider all possibilities before making a decision.Plus they also have to consider that the top 3 smartphone companies Samsung, apple and Huawei are not reliant on their chips.
No way they're going to sell out. They are positioned to be THE smartphone chip manufacturer and Broadcom knows this. In 10 years times, it will be worth twice as much...
so what are you waiting for qualcomm? finally get taken over by some unnamed rich chinese company?
Please don't do this Qualcomm.. Don't ruin your brand name. You should buy broadcom. Some lame company. I don't buy a phone without qualcomm chipset.
