    galaxy a71 user, 15 Jun 2022They're both bad companies.There aren't any good one's. There are only those that are in the position to have as much clout as the likes of Apple or Qualcomm, and those that wish they did.

    In this regard major tech companies arent all that different to the Sith: Those to embody power (in this case financial dominance), and the rest to crave it.

    Anyone here thinking that whatever companies eventually knock Apple and Qualcomm off their respective top slots will then behave any different, well I have a couple of bridges I would love to sell you......

      TheWanderer, 16 Jun 2022both apple and qualcomm are bad, I don't know why you&... moreAgreed.
      However in the scale of "bad to worse" I would rate these Tech-Conglomerates in this order:
      AMD, Google, Samsung, Sony, Qualcomm, Apple, IBM, Nvidia, Microsoft, MediaTek, Oracle, Foxconn, Tencent, Intel, Cisco, Facebook.

            You believe in fairytales also?

              Anonymous, 15 Jun 2022Haters will never read and understand that EU sued Qualcomm... moreboth apple and qualcomm are bad, I don't know why you'd choose to defend either one

                Spanky, 15 Jun 2022They should have sued the fruit logo company, not Qualcomm ... more"Honest company with fair prices." Because you totally know how honest Qualcomm is and how fair prices of their chipsets are when you haven't ever seen them, just price of whole device which has 50 components from 40 different companies... But lets all jump on Apple hating bandwagon because Apple bad reeeeeeeeeeeeee

                  Spanky, 15 Jun 2022They should have sued the fruit logo company, not Qualcomm ... moreThere is no fair price in business..

                      Anonymous, 15 Jun 2022Give me some your smoking. I want to get on this level of d... moreActually Qualcomm made few devices themselves, lastly with coop with asus, but without asus logo... But yeah you would be right otherwise. There's no reason to sue Apple since Apple just opted for their modems, Qualcomm price made them to. And tbh i don't like either of those companies. From a chip perspective i hugely favored Kirin, as it being so close to Qualcomm but without overheating and with better battery optimization. Also ISP was ahead of competitors at least by a year. Nowadays u do think that best chip is dimensity 9000 since it's too close if not better than 888 but with significantly less heat...

                            Qualcomm is not making any phone on there own. They just make parts for them and they are also not so cheap when Mediatek can do it cheaper.

                              They've been ordered to cancel the fines. The question is, by whom?
