According to Toms Hardware testing the Samsung is slightly better overall lol.

    Uh oh! If you returned yours and got a TSMC, time to run it back!

    Dont worry there will be another article next week saying the tmsc is better haha. At this point just keep your phones and enjoy it. If your getting poor battery life you may have another issue.

    so if you have a Samsung chip it magically becomes better then the TSMC again like the first couple of weeks

    thats how this works right? :p

    what's happening next week?, should people exchange their phones in advance or what

    Thanks for the link, Richard. I appreciate your posting this.

    Now--back to my Samsung-chip 6s. :)

    Agreed. You can swap out everyday when the Internet says one is better haha.

    i do still think the tsmc ones better, but im not getting mine till next year and im sure by then we'll know which ones better.

    If you've been keeping up with the forum, apparently a very vocal few care - very much.

    I wish they ran the geekbench battery test too to confirm everyone else's numbers.

    Assuming the geekbench battery test is still higher for the TSMC, I guess the TSMC is throttling more heavily?

    That does it. I am marching down to the Apple store tomorrow and DEMAND they install BOTH chips on my phone. I deserve the best, doctor's orders!

    Those who has SAMSUNG 6S, don't be excited yet..

    Obviously, they omitted the Geekbench test in the report without valid reason. This can not be a good conclusion that SAMSUNG 6S is better. I would't buy the story here. Every Geekbench test point out TSMC has up to 50% power efficiency I've seen 28%, 34%, and 51% in this Macrumors forums. And also, I don't think the excuse is what Tom should say that Geekbench is not usually he did for mobile devices. This I will say a flowed test, since Tom knows the debate is about the geekbench and the battery consumption. Also, other sources around the world finds the temperature from SAMSUNG 6s is higher than the TSMC one. His shows completely different. How people would agree it is statistically meaningful?

    Another article that covers APPLE's A**.

    at this point it's pretty clear how the geekbench battery test plays out on both phones so why run it again. what's interesting is how it is increasingly becoming an anomalous result even amongst other tests that are similar in nature. at this point I think there are enough contradictions that you can't declare anything based on that one test. several of the tests they ran seem to contradict those power efficiently claims in fact. and between anandtech and tomshardware all the other tests are very closely matched making the Geekbench battery test result the anomaly. rather then discard it I think it needs to be figured out as it's consistent, but then that same test gave the Galaxy S6 a really good score so... :p

    NO, I don't have any 6S, or 6S+. You guys jump to the conclusion too fast. :)
    I am using iPhone 4 of 2010, which was using SAMSUNG of course.
    Guys, points are there. Mixing other factors, it's nothing to discuss because it's masked, or canceled out.
    Geekbench tells you one thing, and it's clear that TSMC chip is superior to SAMSUNG, and more users may find it later on if they use SAMSUNG 6S play games a lot.

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion. I along with Apple believe that neither had an advantage.

    I would say TSMC has the advantage on the battery efficiency as geekbench test revealed.
