Amazon, Google and Samsung top list of tech R&D spending

29 November 2018
Apple spent less than both Alphabet and Samsung for research and development.

Sort by:

Well Samsung spend most but a serious QUESTION is: Do we need a foldable phones for 2500 euros???
Of course we dont but we have to pay their Research and Developement costs in prices of their other devices. Thus J4 prime cost more than 150 euros desopite its a basic phone with tiny battery and only 2GB ram and 16GB disk space.
Thus S9 and S9+ brand new costed 1000 euros or more and now you can find them in samsung stores for 449 and 549 euros.
In case of any new technology we basic people will pay for it whether we want or dont want.
But in case of those international megacorporations and megacompanies noone of Ceo or other people came to the public or audience and ask ordinary people what they shoudl research and what peopl really want and need.

And i can honestly answer one thing for sure. Bigger batteries and less fragile phones.

                    10nm was so 2016. I don't know why Intel should scrap it, continue making 14nm and go straight to 7nm. Was GloFo not capable of making this?

                      Facebook increasing R&D to see where they can put ads

                        Johnson & Johnson ?? These are the same ones who makes baby products right.

                          They must be copying Intel for their ryzen / epyc!!!
                          There is no way they can threatening Intel with far less budget!!

End of the day there are plenty of manufacturers who do a lot of R&D like Huawei and Sony who simply didn’t make the list. BMW are not there, the Renault-Nissan Alliance are not there, Land Rover who have a wealth of Off-roading system IP are not there.

                              Relax buddy.

                                AnonF-85937, 30 Nov 2018Probably copied from Samsung! I don't know about that if they bought Samsung displays or they make their own.
                                What I know is that Sony is still solid for generations even if they struggle a bit on this particular (smartphone) division.

                                        Good r and d is aimed at a specific problem that needs to be solved, a lot of r and d carried out by the above is in gimmicks that can then be sold to gullible public at high price, mobile makers work on gimmicks, not problems, take the problem of batteries in phones, at least 50% of the world's users spend 24/7 within 2 metres of a wall socket, charging is not a problem, with quick charge etc even less of an inconvenience, makers claim its one of their major problems, I wonder exactly how time, effort and money have the mobile makers spent on research into batteries, quick charge etc should only have cost a few 10 of millions to get to, its very basic bloody physics, very little r and d needed, but I bet they haven't spent anywhere near what many folk would think on advanced or new battery work..
