Snapdragon maker Qualcomm scores a record quarter
It's been yet another record-breaking quarter for Qualcomm - probably the most successful mobile chipset manufacturer currently. For its 4th fiscal quarter, the maker of Snapdragon managed to secure revenue of $4.87 billion, which is a healthy 18% increase compared to the same period of last year. The increase of net income stands even better at 20% year-on-year, resulting in the sweet $1.27 billion. Not bad for a chip maker.

At the same time, the company has also released its results for its fiscal 2012, and those are just as bright. Revenues have risen by 28% and now stand at $19.12 billion, while net income is up the spectacular 43%, which translates into $6.11 billion.

Their chipsets are too mainstream,through.
Exynos is still the best!

Too mainstream? Really? You just described a chipset as being too mainstream.

No, qualcomm newest snapdragon S4 is the best SoC right now and until Exynos 5 quad with A15 release. Then see which is better.
Snapdragon S4 dual core A15 beats Exynos 5 dual core A15. Both CPU and GPU.

Having a chip-set too "mainstream" is actually a good thing for app developers and compatibility...

I, as the consumer I would definitely go for the "mainstream" chip specially when is one of the very best around. S4 Pro
