    Hi, I ordered a 64gb 6 from apple and just checked and its a Samsung chip, from what I see online, the TSMC has about 20-25% more juice. I just initiated a return, and proceeded to rebuy online. whats the percentage of Samsung to TSMC chips in the phones? wondering what my chances of getting a TSMC chip would be in my next phone?

    This is not my video, so take it for what its worth. Looks legit.

    This link shows the distribution of phones (though, I believe this only accounts for those who ran the app to identify their CPU): http://demo.hiraku.tw/CPUIdentifier/

    Where did you get the 20-25% figure?

    Wow, that's a pretty big difference. Do they explain it at all?

    No one on this or any forum can tell you what the % of phones have either chip. Silly for asking, since we don't work for Apple or the chip makers. Its a lottery at best and some fanatics have exchanged theirs over and over again, and someday Apple will stop this practice of allowing those to exchange over and over again. Just enjoy your phone and stop this thinking.

    Attached states that the author wants others to help him collect more data, so the figures are not accurate to go by. You know how many millions are even sold ?

    With real time usage there won't be 20-25% difference. On my current iPhone 6s Plus Samsung I'm getting 9-12 hours battery life, with the previous iPhone 6s Plus TSMC I was getting 8-10. Go figure.

    I've had 4 x iPhone 6s Plus 64gb. 2 were TSMC & 2 were Samsung. I'm getting the best battery life on the 4th iPhone which happens to be a Samsung chip. If you were maxing out the processor regularly then sure you may see a difference? but, remember there's more to worry about than which company made your processor. Be happy if you get a good screen which doesn't have bad light bleed or a dark pressure point blotch, because these are real issues found on the iPhone 6s Plus.
