    Which is better is debatable I guess. I have the Samsung chip and my battery life is stellar. Personal preference I guess.

    Make sure to check if the seal is intact.

    It's a replacement phone. They opened one in front of me. Completely different phone. Looks fresh.

    They did not tell you that the refurbs don't even have seals anymore as they are too hard to put back in when they refurb them.

    Yes the TSMC is the good chip. People with Samsung chipped phones are still in denial.

    Lol I see that. Although honestly I had a Samsung chip and I didn't feel any difference. I'm just glad I got the TSMC this time.
