No, appleare trying to skimp on quality with low price chip. The reason was the base cost for the upcoming iphone 4XL are higher, if they continue with Samsung high quality chips. The best part was, their consumer will not know the different as they already used to frequent visit back to service centre just to be delighted they have a new,
"Someone used before REPAIRED & REFURBISHED UNIT".
Samsung is so dead. First 1.05 billion USD direct loss of liquidity and then Nokia/Sony putting up some serious competition and now this. They have hardly found enough time to focus on SGS4.
Adomas, 07 Sep 2012You're kidding right? Since when did samsung start producing quality products????Since Apple imposed some decent QC parameters on them.
simha, 07 Sep 2012its not just nokia, even sony are making good phones.yeah right!
but their not that great as to the marketing strats. just how i hate that
but i like em..
so as BB.. just wanna see em rise again.. so that the bigger the competition the better choices and prices for the consumers.
Toshiba and others...... Soon! Lawsuit after 2 year on you. By Apple.
Adomas, 07 Sep 2012You're kidding right? Since when did samsung start producing quality products????I guess from what you are saying that Samsung made not quality but isn't that Apple is Samsung biggest customer?
it doesn't mean that because apple couldn't produce parts for their iphone their already not innovative or some stuffs like that.
Couldn't it be just like because they want the best quality and bringing up the best thing is to get the best parts from different companies??
#not an apple fanboy here.. just annoyed.. i don't like reading reasons like that.. just too ***********...ugh!
Alex Cazan, 07 Sep 2012I would like to see Apple working with Motorola like in the good old days. I guess that won't ... moreI guess you didn't read the news! how could Apple work with Motorola when Motorola filed 7 infringements that Apple copied from Moto and not forget Google is backing up Motorola on this one
Adomas, 07 Sep 2012You're kidding right? Since when did samsung start producing quality products????well they were used in apple products right...
think a little first homeboy lol
Well this makes no sense, the chip set can very well change how consumers view the devices.
Should be interesting for their new line ups, I'm curious to see what happens
why the surprise
this is apples buisness model. same as they are doing with the audience chips. pay for it, see how it works, then either patent it and only use it yourself. or see if you can do it cheeper in house. you cant really blame apple though can you. its a buisness at the end of the day. i am sure the decision wasnt made lightly.
Anonymous, 07 Sep 2012say goodbye to your quality apple You're kidding right? Since when did samsung start producing quality products????
