    The N66AP chip is a Samsung chip. My advice: don't fret over it. Truthfully, you won't notice a difference.

    You can't compare that way. I have the Samsung chip and get great battery life. The Samsung chip is the more powerful chip of the two. I don't see an issue.
    Here's my battery usage sheet from yesterday. I did have Facebook swiped out of multitasking. It was, indeed, draining my battery the day before. I only got about 9 hours usage then.

    Either way it warms up by the earpiece under light usage, which is not normal. I get around 9-11 hours of usage.

    So why would they put different chips in them? And why Samsung, that's their competitor? And what's the difference? My phone doesn't get hot at all ever. It doesn't even get warm at all. It's always cool. And the batter is fine I'm not a light user and it lasts me all day. And when I get home I still have enough to get me through till I go to bed

    Apple has been using Samsung components in its devices for a very long time. I think they are slowly peeling away from Samsung but TSMC simply didn't have the resources necessary to meet Apple's demand this time around. TSMC has been going through some pretty severe financial difficulties which I'm sure contributed to Apple including Samsung-made chips.

    I haven't noticed any warming that's not normal. It warms while charging and using at the same time. Or with battery intense apps. But all that's normal.

    Nothing much. The TSMC chip is slightly larger. So early reporting by some tech blogs and articles said it offered more battery life. It got blown way out of proportion. There's really not much difference. I seem to get better battery life with the Samsung chip than many with the TSMC chip. The Samsung chip is the more powerful chip. I think it boils down to what one does and how everything is set in Settings. This whole topic has been a bit ridiculous. I'm enjoying over 12 hours usage time with over 17 hours standby with the Samsung chip. I doubt I would trade for the TSMC chip phone even if I could. I'm happy with what I have.

    I have the Samsung and it does heat up. My partner has the TMSC and gets way better battery life than I do, under similar usage patterns. This is an issue.
    I have the sammy chip in my phone, my question is, would the problems (heating, battery life) be able to be fixed by software update?

    Cheers..

    I have TSMC chip and I leave home at 7AM with 100% battery. Come home at 4:30PM and still have 70% left. My phone also doesn't heat up. How's that for for battery life?

    You're at work all day? You should have at least 70% left unless you don't work and are on your phone instead. What is your usage time at 4:30?

    I use my phone at work all the time. Checking emails, taking notes on Evernote, writing task on wunderlist app, read lots of tech news on flipboard and from time to time check Instagram and Facebook. Not to mention, I listen to podcast while driving to work.

    That seems kind of high for 70% at 4:30 if you use your phone "a lot at work," cause I don't think I could get that kind of usage out of my phone and I probably use it less than you at this point in time. I couldn't do that on my 6 Plus, either. I'd probably be about 10-15% lower by that time with that kind of usage.

    Do you use Low Power Mode a lot, or use your phone predominantly on WiFi at work? The latter is kind of important because WiFi skews perception of battery life. Using it on LTE is probably going to drain your phone twice as fast compared to even a mediocre WiFi connection.

    Nope, I just have my bluetooth off and always connected to wifi when at work. WiFi makes the big difference.

    Nah.....I'm on my phone CONSTANTLY. and I'm consistently getting over 24 hrs on a full charge with around 9-14 hrs use. Samsung chip.

    The variance in my case has to do with signal strength. When I've got good signal or WiFi I'm in the 14 hr range. When I'm out and about in the back of beyond it's in the 9 hr range.

    Oh and I've got the Samsung chip.

    That's really good..How do you achieve that? Can you share your usage? I able to get long standby time but not on usage time

    That makes sense then. WiFi and BT being on all the time is a virtual non-issue. Doing most of your data transfer over WiFi instead of LTE is where the difference is. Cause this thing dies just as fast on LTE when in use as any other phone I've used.

    The Standby times are amazing. The in-use times are average.

    Switched my SG iPhone 6s to a RG 6s on Friday and this one came with the TSMC chip. Needless to say, I'm a believer....battery life definitely went up. Phone also runs cooler, too.

    "Chipgate" which chip is in your phone? Samsung or TSMC?-imageuploadedbyimore-forums1447120570.605711.jpg
