As we are in the 21st century, so there is no limitation of technology and one of the most famous examples of emerging technology is our smartphone. Day by day they are getting more and more ripped as well as more powerful. When we talk about the performance of the smartphone, everyone knows that on which factor the performance depends, the hardware offered by the brand and the optimization done by the developers/engineers. And one of the best examples of correct optimization and hardware is the iPhone, but as more than 70% market share is for Android so in this article we will be focusing on Android only. When we think about the processors powering Android devices, the two most popular names which come to our minds are Qualcomm and MediaTek. So in this post, we are comparing the two processor makers MediaTek VS Snapdragon by 2017-2018.

Firstly we are talking about the MediaTek, that what the company is offering and in the comparison, we are only considering the power-packed SoC’s from the two manufacturers. MediaTek is the inventor of the first Deca-Core processor which means the power of 10 Cores in a smartphone, sounds amazing that means more data can be processed at a time and which inherently results in a better parallelism. The top-notch series of processors offered by MediaTek includes- Helio X27(MT6797X) and Helio X30 (MT6799), Helio X25(MT6797T), Helio X20(MT6797), they also have P series processors named Helio P20(MT6757), Helio P25(MT6757T), including recent Helio P60. Let’s talk about the basic structure of the manufacturer MediaTek. Their P-series processors like Helio P10, Helio P20/Helio P25 are the chip with ample amount of power and efficiency, let us make this easy for you these SoC’s are not the Flagship one but still has the potential to handle all modern apps. While on the other hand their X-series processors like Helio X25/Helio X20, Helio X27 are known for their mind-blowing performance. One of the biggest merits of these chips is that they are cheaper than the competition that is why you people may have noticed that in most of the Chinese smartphones, they are using MediaTek SoC’s. They offer similar performance to that of the rivals and still are a bit cheaper.
The latest smartphone from a Chinese manufacturer has proved that what a MediaTek chip can do, the phone is priced somewhere near to 219$ and still scored a reputable 1,10,000+ score in the Antutu test. We do not blindly believe in the rough scores the, processor has the potential to match the performance of the other processors available out there, and the smartphone was using an Helio X27, while the Helio X30 has a 141982 AnTuTu score which is also great, this also indicates that their future processors like X35 and X40 will be top class and they will provide way better performance than their predecessors.
Now we would like to talk about the top processors from the house of Qualcomm- Snapdragon 650/660, Snapdragon 652/653, Snapdragon 430/435, Snapdragon 625/626, Snapdragon 630/636, Snapdragon 660 while they have also announced 700 series processor which is yet to come, also they have some flagship processors like Snapdragon 835 and Snapdragon 845. These all were the best processor offered by Qualcomm in 2017-18. Some chip like Snapdragon 425/430/435/450 were targeted to the budget focused phones while other were targeted to the extreme users as we all know processors like Snapdragon 835, 845, Snapdragon 652/653 don’t need an introduction. And in 2017-2018 Qualcomm is the only brand which has powered a dozen of Flagship phones like, OnePlus 5, OnePlus 5T, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2, Nokia 8 Plus, LG G6, HTC 11, Samsung Galaxy S8/S9 Edge, Asus Zenfone 5Z, and much more.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 vs. MediaTek Helio X30
Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 vs. MediaTek Helio X25
Snapdragon 845 vs Helio X30
So for now(2017-18), undoubtedly the clear winner is the Qualcomm Snapdragon series. But we all are aware of the fact that Tech world is highly dynamic and it keeps on changing regularly, So it can be possible that in upcoming future the situation will be different.
So for Tech related updates stay tuned to us.
