Yesterday we talked about the Best Displays available in the market right now and what’s the difference between them, and how will you be able to choose your next smartphone display. But that post was a way too technical according to our majority readers. So I decided to explain the two Powerful Processor companies and their powerful Processors: How they work, classification, comparison and much more, but in a noob friendly way!

So Let’s get started

We know Nowadays Apple is best known for its hardware optimisation in their iPhones but Android is ruling the market currently with more than 70% devices worldwide. So when it comes to Android and their processing powers the names that come first in our minds are Snapdragon and MediaTek.

Let’s start with the Snapdragon processors first

Snapdragon Processor

Snapdragon processors are manufactured by Qualcomm, an American company headquartered in San Diego, California. Snapdragon processors are known for its high quality and high performance, and they are used in smartphones and other mobile devices. Generally, you will find Snapdragon processors in mid to high-end smartphones or phones from well-known brands. Snapdragon range of processors includes a single core, dual core, quad core, hexa core and octa core processors.

Here is the list of all the processor models from Snapdragon.

  • Snapdragon 200 Series – Snapdragon 200, Snapdragon 208, Snapdragon 210, Snapdragon 212.
  • Snapdragon 400 Series – Snapdragon 400, Snapdragon 410, Snapdragon 412, Snapdragon 415, Snapdragon 425, Snapdragon 430, Snapdragon 435, Snapdragon 427.
  • Snapdragon 600 Series – Snapdragon 600, Snapdragon 602A, Snapdragon 615, Snapdragon 616, Snapdragon 617, Snapdragon 625, Snapdragon 650, Snapdragon 652, Snapdragon 653, Snapdragon 626.
  • Snapdragon 800 Series – Snapdragon 800, Snapdragon 801, Snapdragon 805, Snapdragon 808, Snapdragon 810, Snapdragon 820, Snapdragon 821, Snapdragon 830, Snapdragon 835.

We know the simple maths the higher the number the bigger the value, same case here the higher the number more the processing power. Where Snapdragon 400 and 600 series are made for budget devices with more than enough processing power and optimisations, the Snapdragon 800 series if for the hardcore users like Gamers, Developers etc. The are actually not very budget friendly but some companies manage to equip their devices with the fastest processor carrying the budget price tag like OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T, LeEco Le Max 2, Le Pro 3 and more!

Snapdragon 821 is the fastest processor that is commercially available there are other processors in the making like Snapdragon 830, 835 which will change the definition of Speed and power when launched, but till then we have our fastest processor. there is also some news coming from the Sources that Qualcomm announced Quick charge 4.0 which will give you 5 hours of battery backup in just 5 mins of charge! We will talk more about it when we’ll see it in action.

So that was some quick info about Snapdragon processors, here are the highlights

Snapdragon processors:-

  • Wide range of processors (Budget and Flagships)
  • Better Battery management, and charging technology
  • Better Graphics Performance than rivals (Hello Gamers!!!)
  • Advanced Camera, Display and Audio Features
  • Low-Power, Always-On, Fully Integrated Sensors

These were the highlights of what’s inside a Snapdragon Processor, but it’s impossible to be in the game without an opponent, yup I am talking about MediaTek Processors.

MediaTek Processor

MediaTek is a fabless semiconductor company headquartered in Taiwan. It is relatively new in manufacturing processors for smartphones & tablets but has gained wide popularity and reorganisation in smartphones industry because of their cost effective processors. MediaTek processors are generally cheap and are they are widely used in the budget to mid-range smartphones. MediaTek range of processors includes a single core, dual core, quad core, hexa core, octa core and deca-core processors.

Here are the various Mediatek processor models.

Mediatek Processors –MT6752, Helio P10(MT6755), Helio X10(MT6795), Helio X20(MT6797), Helio X25(MT6797T), MT6582, MT6592, MT6595, MT6732, MT6735, MT6737, MT6738, MT6750, MT6753.

They are innovative! they made the first Deca-Core Processor which means the power of 10 Cores in a Smartphone. They are built on the new and innovative Tri-cluster CPU architecture having ten processor cores. They consume low power, gives enhanced gaming performance, supports 32MP camera and much more.

Helio X25 is the fastest processor yet made by the company supporting better Dual Camera image processing (ISPs)….in English the pictures taken from you Dual Cameras comes out to be crisper and sharper. They also built powerful display enhancement technology into the MediaTek Helio X20 series, called MediaTek MiraVision, it is a suite of display enhancement technologies designed to improve not only picture quality but also battery life. So, now your Display will consume less battery power and will show you sharper pictures. They don’t compromise on Displays. Some of the MediaTek Processor powered Smartphones available in the market right now are LeEco Le 1s, LeEco Le 2 (Chinese Variant), Meizu MX5, etc.

They are more focused on budget devices at low prices, if you want a flagship device go for Snapdragon Processors. But if you want a low-cost smartphone with above average specs consider MediaTek.

MediaTek Processors:-

  • Captivating Display Technology with Mira Vision
  • Better Camera Support
  • Power Efficient processors with Tri-cluster CPU architecture
  • Always Secure with MediaTek SafeShield

So here’s the info about the fastest processors and the greatest manufacturers, If you find this info helpful please share it with your friends.
