Buoyed by global smartphone and tablet sales increase, Qualcomm said it made $2.23 net income in the January-March quarter, on sales of $4.94 billion. With more than $26 billion in cash and equivalents, Qualcomm has more money than it knows what to do with, so it will start giving out $0.25 dividend per share to all stockholders on record as of June 1...

Staggering numbers for only 18000 employees company.. I think their cash flow is second only to Apple's, relatively speaking.. and snapdragon S 4 has just only started to roll out!

After the meanless benchmark from S4, some kinds of Snapdragon-fan appear that we didn't see before. In my opinion, it's still crapdragon.
Exynos is always the king.

There is no "Snapdragon-fan", Qualcomm just delivered to market first with a better solution.
Exynos was on top for last year, but right now it seems like they will just make what Nvidia made, but with improvements outside of the CPU.

No the rumor was there would be delay in the manufacturer and that all the base on the S4 would be delay but that did not happen. And for the exynos fanboy they only have other company using their chips it is Chinese company. So they will not be top dog anytime soon.

there's been no delay with the first batch but what about the next? it doesn't matter how many people is using them. how come that's such a huge factor to you? the only important thing is the chips's power.

No the rumor is the device will be delay because of the manufacturing of the S4. Samsung will not be the king of chip making because only one other company is using there chip. The biggest reason the exynos has no lag in the SGS2 is because of touchwiz 4 using you for rendering. The blaze 4 has no lag and that use the S4.

Over-rated chip(exynos) made just for benchmarks.

Snapdragon works perfectly fine in my Focus. Sure its not a gaming monster, but I'm not much of a mobile gamer anyway. Exynos surely is a beast, but I am more apt to buy another snapdragon device because it has none of the lag my Atrix on a dual-core Nvidia chip did.
