As we are in the 21st century, 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 about 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 2019- 2020.

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 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 and the latest Helio P70. Let’s talk about the basic structure of the manufacturer MediaTek. Their P-series processors like Helio P10/P20/P25 including P60 and P70 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 and X30/40 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 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 smartphones 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 650/660/675, Snapdragon 652/653, Snapdragon 430/435, Snapdragon 625/626, Snapdragon 630/636, Snapdragon 710/720 also they have some flagship processors like Snapdragon 835, 845 and the beast Snapdragon 855. These all were the best processor offered by Qualcomm in 2019-2020. Some chip like Snapdragon 425/430/435/450 were targeted to the budget focused phones while others were targeted to the extreme users as we all know processors like Snapdragon 845, 855 and Snapdragon 636,660,710 don’t need an introduction. And in 2019-2020 Qualcomm is the only brand that has powered a dozen of Flagship phones like, OnePlus 6, OnePlus 6T, Xiaomi Mi Mix 3, Nokia 6.1, 7.1 Plus, LG G7, Samsung Galaxy S9/S10 Edge, Asus Zenfone 5Z, Google Pixel 3 and much more.

Snapdragon 865 (Upcoming)
It is an upcoming beast from the house of snapdragon that is expected to be unveiled in December this year. It is expected to build with Samsung’s 7nm EUV process which is 15% to 20% more efficient, which will be the biggest change happened in their processors.
So from the next year, we are going to witness a lot of upcoming flagship smartphones in 2020 with the company’s latest processor Snapdragon 865. This processor will be kicking out all the MediaTek chips from the competition for sure. But still, we have to wait a while for the final announcement from the company. Samsung cloud the first smartphone company to implement it on its smartphone like the upcoming Galaxy S11 is expected to have this processor out of the box.
So for now, undoubtedly the clear winner is the Qualcomm Snapdragon series. But we all are aware of the fact that the tech world is highly dynamic and it keeps on changing regularly, So it can be possible that in the upcoming future the situation will be different.
