    Samsung is 14nm, and TSMC is 16nm. Theoretically, the Samsung should hold in edge in battery life, performance, heat, etc.

    http://demo.hiraku.tw/CPUIdentifier/

    The above site will tell you which chip you have (some other member posted this in a frontage thread).

    Personally:

    Silver 64gb iPhone 6s Plus: TSMC chip.

    Andantech explains it better:

    http://www.anandtech.com/show/9665/apples-a9-soc-is-dual-sourced-from-samsung-tsmc

    Based on what andantech says, we have to assume either the above "CPU identifier site" is a software based identification method, or total BS.

    Is is possible to verify chip type without opening the device?

    Random third party app from the internet. What could go wrong?

    Wasn't it on the news that initially Apple was using TSMC to manufacture the A9, but due to insufficient yields it switched over to Samsung? So I would guess the same chip comes from two sources.

    Got a TSMC. I really don't think it makes a difference. Samsung's 14nm FinFet wasn't a true die shrink anyways, I'm not sure about TSMC's.

    I wonder if all the reviewers will get handpicked Samsung 14nm A9's... Heat, performance, battery life.

    Not all apps from China are bad. Wechat is from China and it is awesome.

    OT: Except for it being one of a handful of apps compromised by XCodeGhost.

    Exactly! I always look for Chinese apps to download from non Apple site.

    Does it matter to me what chip I have in my phone? No.
    Does it matter to me that I could download malware? Yup

    Yea...no way I'm trusting a Chinese profile from a random site.

    Find another way to confirm chips.

    Definitely load the app, just ignore pop ups. Turn on pop up blockers.:)

    I downloaded the app, but something is wrong, everything is in Chinese on my phone now. Do they have Chinese speaking genius at Apple Store?
