All Samsung. Nobody else!
Samsung is sooooo innovation!!
Fai Hundra Dullah!! Good price!!

The most important thing is as long as they can produce the hardware which can work best with OS,then nothing can interfere. I do not mean apple is bad,they are good,but their lack of being openness and customization/limitations,always make their customers leave to other competitors and that is not a wise,long-term strategy I guess. Cheers...
And in the end everyone ships all their bits and pieces off to China for assembly. HAHAHA!!!!
So many juvenile comments in here. This is how the world works, almost all companies outsource component production to some degree.
And guess what - at least Apple make their own software. Samsung & Co. would be screwed without Google. All the hardware in the world is useless if you don't have a decent operating system to go with it.
3illz., 30 Sep 2013Apple is clearly not the best. Upon all the money they have stolen from their brainwashed fans... moreYoureally haven't got an idea about chip design.
Apple 100% designed the A7 chip. Samsung just make it.
Also its Samsung Semiconductor Corp that make the chip - not Samsung Mobile.
it's impossible for a dual-core 1.3 ghz to be faster than a quad-core 2.3 ghz. 1gb RAM ain't sufficient for the 64 bit
Apple is clearly not the best. Upon all the money they have stolen from their brainwashed fans, they can't manufacture their own chipset. I thought they were independent. It's a shame cos if they were to manufacture their own chipset. IPhone would be called 'ILag'.
MrGenie, 30 Sep 2013im not sure if this makes any sense at all.. whos gonna make the remaining 70-60% of the A8... moreyou are a new to the electronic world...?all apple chips are made by samsung......
30-40% made will be made by Samsung. 60-70% will be made by TSMC. The SoC chip in the 5s was made by Samsung processes. It's clear that Apple didn't design the chip rather it's Samsung.
Apple (American) rely on Samsung (Korean) to manufacture their chipsets.
In return Samsung (Korean) rely on Qualcomm (American) to supply their chipsets.
Troller, 30 Sep 2013and dont forget that u can't create something if there's no idea / instructions to guide you :... moreWhat ever apple "designed" is based on Intel, ARM ,Qualcomm ... just to name a few. Apple did not invent anything. Period.
That said, Apple iPhones are not inferior, they have good quality and standards.
and btw, any one cannot manufacture the best, albeit you give the design. it needs expertise and craftsmanship.
and dont forget that u can't create something if there's no idea / instructions to guide you :)
apple designed the chips.
anyone can make it if apple desired so :)
Anonymous, 30 Sep 2013benchmarks: iphone has been trashing the competitors that is the factlike a Snapdragon 800, nothing more ...
Samsung are stupid. they make chips for Apple. and then let apple sue them. for different reasons. So learn by your mistakes. stop making Apple chips. and you wont get sued. simples.
SyCoDRIVE, 30 Sep 2013Samsung has always made the Apple chips lol.... iphones are samsung phones with weak specs and... more.... Ain't you worried? Samsung made phones? if u despise apple cpu so much?
Android fanboys are so funny.
Its like your mum bake a cake, you hate it, but if she slap a picture of a robot on the cake .. u love it immediately.
And CAN your mum make the cake if she do not KNOW how? .. besides.. your samsung phones are made up of qualcomm guts more then samsung!!
