    Fine figures there Samsung. Anice 10nm SoC in the Galaxy S8 with it's power reduction might stop the flaming battery problem eh

    And I remember the survey that said 66% of iPhone owners weren't interested in an iPhone 7 if it didn't have a headphone socket...

    Yeah but they pay for the logo, not performance or features....and hell, a reason to buy a pair of £250 beats headphones (that are worse then a £35 pair of plantronics) makes the iPhone 7 a "must have"

    Luckily Android will run on a any piece of crap up to top hardware, giving Samsung owners a huge choice of alternative providers.

    BTW iPhone 7 comes with an lightning to headphone adapter included in the box, so you can use your existing headphones, obviously it is a problem if you want to charge and listen to music at the same time, but if you have a iPhone 7 the cost of a bluetooth headset is unlikely to be an issue.

    All valid points... but I still reckon that 40% is way higher than the actual number who will defect

    Re: Samsung starts mass production of 10nm FinFET SoCs

    Is it both or just one of those?
    "up to 27 per cent higher performance or 40 per cent lower power consumption"
    I'll take the 40% lower power consumption over the performance any day.

    You can kinda mix and match. So perhaps 10% better performance with 25% less power? (Figures not representative at all)

    AIUI the cpu already takes way less power than the screen in a modern laptop, so 40% less power on the CPU won't get you 40% more battery life.

    These are always best case figures though, Intel and AMD are no better. You might squeeze 27% more performance out of a 15W SoC, or get the same performance as an old 15W SoC but now at 9W.

    It never seems to translate to anything useful at the top end for desktop devices.
