I got a new phone today and I want to see if my phone has the better chip. How can i check? Thanks.
IMO, there is no "better chip. I have the "bad" one, and my battery easily lasts me all day. I could probably squeeze out 2 days on a charge if I was forced to go that way.
But to answer your question, the latest version of Geekbench will identify the chip.
Any free. Apps
Download Lirium Info Lite from the apps store. Its free and you can see the processor manufacturer under CPU information.
Edit : Its called Lirium.
What am I looking for is it where it says manufacturer. Which is the "better" again.
You bought it, now just use it. Don't worry about the chip for goodness sakes. This has been talked to death.
Agreed. It is sad to be so happy with your device and have something like this ruin it but the OP is wanting to know.
Best piece of advice would be: Don't.
Just enjoy your new phone.
Yeah same with all the above I have the 'bad' one, and I can stretch it two days!
The 'good' chip you are looking for is TSMC
It says Samsung so not sure. What was the difference in all this testing. Was it proven to even be different? And is Apple mainly using the "bad" or "good" chips.
Tests were done the TSMC was proven to be better, but those weren't realistic tests I don't think. Plus it was like an extra 2 hours battery life apparently.
I hardly doubt you would notice a difference, and I don't think Apple are manually choosing what chip it just depends down the manufacturing line.
The variance is said to be 2-3%. I doubt you will ever notice over the lifetime of the device. Just enjoy it.
An extra two hours is pretty substantial though. Damn.
tell a lie I have the TSMC my other half has a Samsung, there isn't much difference. We use our phones pretty much near on the same each day.

apparently though, plus that wasn't based on real world users
I don't think it has been proven for general use, once again as everyone has said I highly doubt you would notice a difference.

This makes more sense 3
Percent is really nothing but two hours?! Lol
Are people actually returning to get the tmsc chip. That's crazy.
yeah some people were hardcore Apple fans and people who found out this little difference.
StupidGate goes on.
I'm not going to return it for a chip that will be hard to find. Just think it's crazy for a 2 percent difference that no one should notice since we all use our phones differently.
Omg I got Samsung! I just throw it in trash now. So sad maybe next one I get tmcs?
You know you can look up the dozens of threads on this. Keep you reading for days. Don't wake this hibernating bear from its' fitful sleep.
Here we go again. Just enjoy your phone and don't worry about which chip it has. There is variance among all electronic components, even of the same type. This chip thing has gotten ridiculous in my opinion. There are tests that show each is better for battery life and performance that conflict with each other, and none are really done in a controlled environment as tests should be done, with sufficient sample sizes to prove anything. You can take two identical (same chips) iPhones and find two that will vary by 2-3% so all of this is margin of error.
Enjoy your iPhone and don't believe the hype that you have an inferior chip.
