    I hear Toshiba make the best screens and processors. Samsung make the best colored screens and touch response technology as they did for APPLE. So is Apple bassically getting parts from these other companies to build it's phones? I also hear HTC is big the Smartphone industry and produce alot of parts. Can anyone break it all down? like who does what? and where companies get these parts from and what there role is.

    I just found out the other day that the light sensor on my I9000 is made by Sharp, the magnetic sensor by Yamaha, and the orientation sensor also by Yamaha.

    I think it would be very difficult to come up with a complete list. So many companies make different parts for other companies.

    That can be a difficult question to answer. I would need to see the PCB and/or BOM. That is, printed circuit board and bill of materials. There are lots of components in a typical phone.

    We built Palm Pilots and the resistors, caps, integrated circuits, plastic parts, switches came from many sources. A few parts were custom manufactured just for us, like screen assemblies and plastic frames/cases. Our LCD assemblies came from FoxCom.

    We had a number of PCB vendors over the years and I am not sure if you know this, but a printed circuit board contains (or can) many layers. Very complicated parts and they cant be repaired so they must be perfect. As complexity increases, the PCB becomes harder to make.

    We were contract manufacturers so we always bought the least costly components we could find, just as long as the pars were well made and within specifications.
