Please for all i know you're using a smartphone that's not siemens. Lie much? You must be a millenium kid. Fanboys like you still exist and pretend they're not. So you're bashing apple. That means you're anti apple. Simple. Welcome to the internet.

While iOS has pretty much stayed the same for a decade with its same restrictions and proprietary bs. I hate iTunes, annoying iCloud ID notifications, no file explorer, no way to change those ugly icons, no expandable storage, and whatever Apple's totalitarian philosophy loves to do these ignorant hipsters/poseurs who know nothing about tech except to hold a pretty phone...

iOS will always be the garbage OS to me. It is only faster in speed tests because it LAGS in so many other key areas from its restrictions like opening iTunes just to add or delete media files. That takes 3-5 minutes just to do it.

i want a multicore 3.4GHZ phone that'd be the first mobile nuclear device (MND) . That will explode and kill you and everyone in the vicinity

AnonD-92238, 15 Mar 2017"very very efficient battery" is what we need. If battery more efficient in new chips so, why people still complaint about the small battery. They expect oems to put bigger and bigger battery that is not even physically possible to fit in a thin device. Is there really a need for bigger battery when the chipset is already 'very very efficient'?

BTW, not everything goes with theory. Couple of years back less than 10nm was considered *impossible*

AnonD-92238, 15 Mar 2017More cores = more heat. Octa-dual cluster is enough.If anything multiple cores allow us to sidestep thermal thresholds in our pursuit of higher performance.

You should read up on basic tech

AnonD-244086, 15 Mar 2017i am waiting for 1 nm processorSamsung stated that the current technology only allows them at most produce 7nm chipset.

Hence the massive investment in 7nm (10nm for current high and future lower tier phones). Unless there is manufacturing breakthrough, 7nm will be around for quite sometime.

And copied patented tech? You mean how apple had to use photo shopped pictures of the galaxies as evidence to try and make them look a little more like an iphone.

Educate yourself like you obviously did researching your stuff when we all know all you never experienced old school cellular phones. You probably started at what, like the Nokia symbian OS? haha. I would recommend you going to school and get educated. Can't even get grammar right.
