Why aren't more manufacturers using Intel in their Android phones?

Is Intel ready to take on Qualcomm for mobile processor dominance?

Two years ago, seeing the Intel Inside branding on a smartphone would have made a lot of people laugh. Qualcomm owned the mobile world, and Intel wasn't ready to compete. This past year, we saw something very different. Qualcomm stumbled with the Snapdragon 810 in a mostly-pointless rush to support 64-bit architectures, and the handful of phones we saw Intel processors in seemed to close the performance gap between $200 and $600 phones. Suddenly we had ASUS ZenFone 2 owners looking at HTC One M9 or LG G Flex 2 owners and asking what they actually got with their more expensive phone, and the answers to that question weren't obvious.

As we move into the next wave of Android phones, many most likely coming with Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 820 processor, some Android users are left wondering why we aren't seeing more phones packing Intel processors. Specifically, why aren't any of the top-tier manufacturers making the switch after this past year?
