It also probably had a lot to do with the high price of bitcoin earlier this year.

Probably not bad if you can click away all of the Samsung pop-up advertisements in each stock app.

Phone calls

It's a processor, not a phone, so it is irrelevant. It is only once it is plugged into a phone that that becomes relevant, and that is dependent on the quality of the microphone (nothing to do with the chip), the speaker (nothing to do with the chip), the circuit board(s) (nothing to do with the chip), the controlling software (minimal influence from the chip) and the ENF smog (partial influence from the chip)...

is it going to have a decent open source video driver?

Ugh... Mali... I had to deal with the one shipping with Exynos 5 when installing Debian on my chromebook. Nightmare video adapter. The published drivers are usually totally out of date so one has to deal with fbdev

Intel is quaking at the double of their 7nm competition.
