Samsung hastily put together an announcement that Galaxy S5 will have a 64bit processor after Apple’s Sept 10 announcement on iPhone5S and A7. Then Samsung back tracked 2 days later to say it would be misguided to produce a 64bit mobile processor. It was apparently that Samsung was caught surprised by the A7 and responded in a conflicting manner.

1. If Samsung has indeed manufactured the A7, how could Samsung corporate not know about this months earlier? They should have known about this back in late 2012. In Samsung style, they would have made an announcement on the position about the 64bit processor months earlier to conter Apple. But they didn’t.

2. According to another trade publication from Taiwan, Most of the A7 information leak including it being dual core came from Taiwanese Industrial sources. Leading one to believe the TSMC has much more involvement with A7 than Samsung.

But then the same Taiwanese source also said that A7 will be sourced from both Samsung and TSMC.

I just find it so odd that Samsung corporate with their billion dollar marketing budget would be caught so blindsided when Apple 64bit processor was manufactured in their own house, which they had for months.

Things just don’t add up her

Lmao

Samsung made the first A15 socs 2012, while Apple was still using halfbaked A9, modified till 2013.

If they think that the only advantage having a 64bit CPU, is to address more RAM than 3GB then they must learn the basics about CPU architecture and RAM.

64bit CPU means that at once, the CPU will be able to grab a chunk 64bit instructions and execute them. As a result it enables CPU to address more than 3GB of RAM.

Samsung knows how to produce 64bits but do not see a compelling reason.

Absolutely, since Android is FAR from 64bit ready.

Android L will be 64 bit. Besides Android has been using 64 bit processors for some time already. With the 64bit Intel CPUs.

Lol Android saying it has the best OS. Flooding the market isn't necessarily quality it can just as easily be quantity, funny stuff though.

Android is the best mobile OS because it is the most advanced mobile OS not because it is the most common mobile OS.

What's your definition of "advanced"?

I don't see anything in AOSP that would suit my definition of that.

43. willard12 (Posts: 865; Member since: 04 Jul 2012)


The best definition of "advanced" is probably measured by the number of features that are "adopted" by other operating systems. The most advanced OS is probably the one others go to to learn about command centers, notifications, and widgets. You know, the things that no one cared about until Apple announced they would have them years later. Advanced means you can do basic things such manage files. Apple waits to see what Android will have so they can implement it years later, not the other way around.

That simply not true, Advance is the most modern OS, its the way the OS mo es, gets things done without being held back by Viruses, lagging etc, it offers a smooth experience at different spectrums of the market.

One so call underrated feature that no one has adopted from Android is its virtual machine (VM). Some will look at this feature as Androids Achilles heel or just think its dumb, stupid, and slow. But those people are short sighted. Especially since Android can run the same apps from the play store on x86, MIPS and the plethora of Arm CPUs. This help to propel Android to where it is today on all the hardware that is out there. Not to mention this is why project Ara will succeed. I would love to see iOS or WP try to do something like project Ara, but I already know that both those OS's would never work, because they locked their developers into specific hardware. Apple with their A# specific arm chips and Microsoft locked to specific cortex-A# CPUs from Qualcomm.
Project Ara is even allowing for two AP modules (Application processor). How would that work with iOS or WP. That's right it wouldn't without a major overall, and even then iOS and WP apps are compiled and locked to specific hardware anyway. This one feature alone is going to propel Android into the future.

Typical for Android : looks great on paper, pain in the a$$ in reality.

Yeah, pretty much everything is that way.

And this VM crap is nothing else but an abomination.

Ara? It's either vapoeware or DoA.

Quick question, can you install an app non-approved by apple on IOS? Can you install an app non-approved by microsoft on Windows phone? Can you install an app non-approved by google on Android. The one who can do that simple task must be the most advanced.

Windroid, I get that u need other sources other then the copies of copies of apps in Google Play. But here with iOS we're pretty contempt with the selection of apps, the UI design of our OS, the way each app works within our phones and tablets.

I have never seen an app in google play that I thought i must have. Trust me bro, we have it - and we have the one designed for ouR OS, not the ones you get (you know, ported by devs from iOS).

Explain to us what is advanced about Android, An advance OS runs proper from low end to high.

With Windows Phone 8 there is no glaring flaw, or huge omission that makes the entire operating system a pain to use, but more a combination of smaller factors and annoyances that aren't present on other established platforms. What makes these issues more annoying is that with a bit of extra time, polish and development, all of them could be addressed in a future update with relative ease.

The principle used for Windows Phone, like iOS, is that for the most part it "just works" with little configuration needed. For end-users and those with lesser experience using smartphones, this approach is fantastic as a complex array of settings and options can be overwhelming, and often some feature highlights can be missed unless you are told they are there. With Windows Phone the best stuff is enabled by default, and a variety of other extra features are very easy to enable.

If you even remotely want to point that your ugly WP is best, then just sit down kid, you said the same to WP 8 which was seriously crap.
Its okay, we understand, you are butthurt because of that comic strip didn't mention WP, but you see no one cares about 4% market, no apps and games platform. :)

Android has ~80% market share and we have nothing to feel insecure abt...
It is you the crappy WP users with little no.of apps who are feeling insecure...
That s y u always bash Android but we Android user dont even care abt that coz we dont consider WP users as adults...
Go cry to ur M$ mama kids...
