 It's pathetic. 8 cores (4 high performance and 4 lower) and a higher clock speed and it's still slower. And it's over a year older than the A7, which in technology is like an eternity. Plus the Exynos 5433 isn't even a Samsung processor - it's just a copy of an ARM design. Despite Samsung telling us all along they were going to start custom designing processors. Well, Samsung, where is your custom processor. Even more pathetic is the Note 4 is running in 32bit mode....
And in 7 out of 9 CPU benchmarks (as tested by Anand) the iPhone 5S from last year is faster than the Exynos 5433. What a pathetic processor.
Apple doesn't own a patent on one-touch fingerprint sensors. Though they likely have several on the underlying technology. If Samsung makes a new sensor with a different technology they'll be OK.The real question is can you make one as good as Touch ID without violating any Apple/Authentc IP?Even funnier is what the haters will say when Samsung effectively abandons swipe for touch. That's basically admitting Apples is better.
Samsung doesn't know where they're headed. Invested in making KNOX, which has been a failure. Then making a deal with Google to share KNOX IP for use in Android to improve security. Then partnering with BB on mobile security. Now they want to buy BB? Then there's the newly announced Tizen smartphone (2nd time around) and switching their smart TV's from Android to Tizen.   This is a company without any clear direction.
 Quote:  Stop lying. Manufacturers (at least all the major ones) belong to the OHA. The OHA has strict rules on what you can and can't do with Android. You can't modify Android such that it breaks compatibility with Google Play Store Apps or any Google services. And you can't release a device with an Android fork (just ask Acer how that went when they tried with their Aliyun phone- Google stepped in and shut them down). You're confusing AOSP with Android that OEMs use....
Yes. How many times has he stated that Google Play Services provides updates and security patches? I've explained to him several times that items in the actual OS itself can't be patched by Google Play Services. And here we are, with a security flaw that Google Play can't fix and requires the OEMs to recompile and issue that patch themselves.
What a load of crap. If company A has 1,000 complaints about their product and company B also has 1,000 complaints, does that make them equal? Hardly. If company A sold 1,000,000 devices then only 1/1,000 are complaining. If company B sold 1,000 devices then every single person who bought one has a complaint.This is how it is with iOS 8 vs Lollipop. iOS 8 has easily hit several hundred million users, and very likely hit 100 million within a week of launch. Lollipop is on...
Gee, I didn't know you could get over 2000 patents for rounded corners. /S
Don't buy that for a minute. At 60% of Apple that represents billions in revenue for Google. Yet they lump Google Play revenues in the "other" category on their financial statements.If they were actually making that much then it would deserve its own category.
 That's what I got. The 2013 figure is total revenue, the 2014 figure is paid to developers (which would make revenues $14.2 billion. A solid 40% increase from 2013). In 2013 Apple would have made $3 billion (30% cut from $10 billion revenues).
