Samsung built A7 processor rocks the new Apple iPhone 5s

0. phoneArena 21 Sep 2013, 04:12 posted on

Samsung has provided many of the parts for the Apple iPhone and Apple iPad over the years; but this year, there were some who believed that Apple had reached an agreement with TSMC to replace Samsung as the provider of the A7 processor that drives the Apple iPhone 5s. But apparently that deal won't take affect until 2014...

Put those icons on a colorful background and they look great. Android has its own icon problem in that there's no uniformity of size or shape making everything look very hodgepodge. And the most popular stock launchers completely waste those big spacious screens by only allowing 12 icons per screen.

That's not really a fair assessment, especially when you look at the iPad.

He's only going to say the positive of iOS instead of the negative. Everyone knows that.

You can customize the size of any home screen on a launcher, especially with Nova Launcher... You don't know what you're talking about and your comment is now invalid. :)

He's an apple fanboy that keeps comparing benchmarks of his iphone 5 to android phones. He has nothing to talk about but irrelevant bs. The fact that his comments get likes is beyond me.

Who cares about stock? It's there for Apple defectors. Like training wheels. The rest of us know where to go to make our phones rock! Most launchers I use have configurable rows and columns. My favorite is NovaLauncher. 6x5 + a hideable, scrollable dock giving me 35 icons on my S3 if I choose. Plenty of room for my various widgets. So Awesome. I have no idea what your saying here. And no uniformity? I like knowing a gazillion people may have a phone like mine, but all of our home screens look different. Every iPhone looks the same on/off/left/right/up/down. If you WANT to be a lamb in the herd, you can get icon packs to make everything look just like an iPhone, or whatever. I have used both platforms for years. It appears you only know Apple. I'm sorry.

No wonder why J K Shin assured us that Samsung is definitely going to adopt 64-bit CPU for its next flagship AKA Galaxy S5. Since they make it for Apple, they're going to "copy" it - like they've been doing all along since the first iPhone.

In the world of technology nothing is impossible!! I m pretty damm sure there will be a way out, ip5s ain't got 4gigs of ram, they would rather die instead

Well if you look back since 2007 you would notice, design copy, as well as UI , samsung has always been trying to follow apple, until recently since its toe to toe now, they probably dont care much, but nevertheless touchwiz from the beginning was a copy of apples UI, adding the similar design also, with a physical home button, I dont know what to tell you, if not copying, of course in this industry everybody copies, but samsung more than others were blatantly copying apple, thats why they had to pay for doing so.

what about what ios has done with android?
You now have the control settings,
the live wallpapers,
the multitasking,
the notifications,
the lock screen,

apples the one doing the copying now.
your talkinga bout 2007, thats 6 years ago.
when was the last time apple did anything innovative?

not this year, not last year, and for sure not the year before last.

Well look 64bit processor is bringing a new window for innovation, yes it might not mean much, but if they didnt do it, nobody would have brought it for a while, reason why samsung had to mention it after it was shown by apple. Fingerprint sensor while it was used before by the atrix, it was never as accurate as apple has done it, and yes even though lenovo laptops have fingerprint sensor, they are not as accurate.

Most of those stuff didn't originate from android either.
Control setting... Long in Ubuntu
Live wallpaper, Microsoft introduced that in Vista
Multi task UI, inspired by HTC Sense 5 and WebOS
Notification, most defiantly Android 1.0
Lockscreen, idk doesn't look like stock android, it's probably inspired to Samsung Galaxy S3's water dripping effect.

What has apple done, pointed smartphones in the right direction which is why we have android the way it is today..... Respect where it's due.

Apple innovation... Probably in 2007.........

HTC's innovations are on the right track with the boom sound speakers etc..

Samsung isn't innovative either, worthless gimmicks have a lot to be desired.

Google's is somewhat innovative with wireless g charging, NFC (No Fu(king cables) etc.... But I believe wireless charging was intel's idea at first.

Please refer to the samsung f700 for your physical home button. You have to wonder, if you are completely clueless on one thing,how much else are you clueless about?

The only thing Samsung has ever copied were some design elements on the UI.

Yeah, just like how they copied Apple with their Exynos processors, or 5+ inch screens, or S-pen, etc.

No, Samsung are going to do the same thing Apple did, take ARM's long ago announced 64bit reference design and instruction set, and modify it with their own tweaks. Like they've done with the Exynos models since before Apple started modifying ARM's designs.
