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.When we think about the processors powering Android devices, the two most popular names which come in our minds are Qualcomm and MediaTek. So in this, we are comparing the two processor makers MediaTek VS Snapdragon
MediaTek is a semiconductor company headquartered in Taiwan.It is relatively new in comparison with Qualcomm Snapdragon.MediaTek has gained popularity and organization in mobile phone industry due to their cost-effective processors. MediaTek processors are generally used in budget and mid-range devices.MediaTek range of processors includes a single core, dual core, quad core, hexa core, octa core and deca-core processors.
Here is the list of processors made by Mediatek:
Mediatek Processors – MT6752, MT6582, MT6592, MT6595, MT6732, MT6735, MT6737, MT6738, MT6750, MT6752, MT6753, MT6795, Helio X20, Helio X25.
Helio X20 and Helio X25 are the top-end processors from MediaTek. They have been designed to take on Snapdragon 820. Helio X20 and Helio X25 are Deca-core processors which mean they have 10 cores. Ten cores are maximum for mobile phone.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 the 32MP camera and much more.
Snapdragon processors are manufactured by Qualcomm,an American based company which has its headquarter in San Diego, California.Snapdragon processors are very well-known for its high-quality and high-performance.They are used in mobile phones and tablets.They are preferred to be used in top end Mobile Phone devices by the manufacturers.These are also seen in mid-range mobile phone devices.They make a variety of processors which includes Dual Core, Quad Core, Hexa Core and Octa Core Processors.
Here is the list of all processors made by Qualcomm 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 600 Series – Snapdragon 600, Snapdragon 602A, Snapdragon 615, Snapdragon 616, Snapdragon 617, Snapdragon 625, Snapdragon 650, Snapdragon 652
Snapdragon 800 Series – Snapdragon 800, Snapdragon 801, Snapdragon 805, Snapdragon 808, Snapdragon 810, Snapdragon 820, Snapdragon 821.Snapdragon 823,Snapdragon 830,Snapdragon 835.
The most popular processors are:
Snapdragon 400 Series (Quad Core)
1.Snapdragon 400(3G Chipset)
2.Snapdragon 410(4G Chipset)
Snapdragon 600 Series (Hexa Core)
Snapdragon 800 Series (Octa Core)
Snapdragon 835 so far is the most powerful processor made by Qualcomm.It is a 64-bit Octa Core CPU which has a maximum clock speed of 2.4 GHz.The GPU on Snapdragon 820 chipset is Adreno 540.Snapdragon 835 can support 4k Ultra HD display, Quick Charge 4.0, NFC, X12 LTE, 25MP camera, Hexagon 680 DSP and much more features.
MediaTek vs Snapdragon
MediaTek is much cheaper than Qualcomm processor, but still, users prefer to buy the smartphones with Qualcomm processor because most of the popular mobile brands make use of Qualcomm processor. Though Qualcomm is high range processor, if compared with Media Tek, the degradation cycle of Qualcomm processor is far better than that of Media Tek processor. Media Tek processors are degraded faster as compared Qualcomm.
Qualcomm Snapdragon processor is based on innovative technology delivered before anyone else could get there. Qualcomm Snapdragon processor is expensive in comparison to Media Tek processor. Therefore, the smart phones making the use of Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset are costlier as compared to those making the use of Media Tek chipset. The revenue generated by Qualcomm Snapdragon is six times more in comparison to Media Tek. Qualcomm Snapdragon is the largest manufacturer of chipsets for smart phones.
