How to choose a smartphone with the right processor

There is no doubt, one of the most complex smartphone themes are their processors. In today’s modern-day, we all have smartphones ,whether it is a budget device, mid-range phone or a flagship one. While most of the people now do a little research online before buying a new smartphone, as to which one can turn out to be the best device for them as per their usage and budget, there are still a lot of people who buy a new device just on the basis of its glossy stylish looks. People don’t pay attention to the most important part of the smartphone which is its processor. And, when we talk about processor, the first question comes in our mind is Qualcomm Snapdragon and MediaTek, which one is better? So, let’s find that out in this blog.

What is a processor?

A processor carries modules that support different hardware and features of the smartphone including camera, screen, Wi-Fi, security, graphics, Bluetooth, network connectivity, and many others. A high-end processor supports and offers the latest features available with each of these components. A fast processor will complete all your tasks in no time whereas a weaker one will give you a bad user experience. It will show lags, poor battery life, etc. However, investing in expensive flagship smartphones with a high-end processor will give you the best user experience.

How to choose a processor?

On the basis of specifications.

The efficiency of a processor mainly depends on two specifications; the number of cores and the speed of the clock it has to deliver. Based on these two figures, let’s explore how to pick the right one.

core is a processor component that implements and executes given assignments. Today’s smartphones come with many cores. Each core have to perform and manage tasks and implement to them. The more the number of cores, the more and heavier applications it will run at the same time. A number of multi-core processors come from the latest generations of smartphones. Dual-core (two), quad-core (four), and octa-core (eight), with the latter being the most powerful, are the most commonly found. Hexa-core (six) chipset also comes with some processors and brands but they are pretty rare.

The processors also distinguished by their clock speeds, as described in Gigahertz (GHz). This also applies to the speeds at which functions can be done by each of the cores. Naturally, the greater the quantity, the better the performance you get. For multi-core processors, however, you could find multiple GHz numbers, also on some high-end models. That’s because most manufacturers are trying to form a balance between productivity and strength. Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 845 chipset, for example, features eight cores, four of which clocked at 2.8 GHz for peak capacity, and four other clocked at 1.7 GHz for stability and battery consumption.

So, make sure that you not only look at the number of cores when choosing a CPU but also compare clock speeds to get a better understanding.

On the basis of brand and series

Even with all the above details, it can be hard to pick a processor. After all, quantifying the use and matching it with the number of cores and core velocities (GHz) communicated by the organization is not easy. If that’s too confusing for you, then you can simply select a processor based on brands and the chipset sequence that they describe.

There are only a couple of businesses that manufacture mobile processors, two of which you only need to concentrate on Qualcomm and MediaTek. Processors are also manufactured by other corporations such as Apple, Samsung, and Huawei, but they are generally found with their own applications. Qualcomm is more common, mainly because popular OEMs like Samsung, LG, HTC, and Motorola also use their processors. On the other hand, with upcoming products such as Vivo, Oppo, Intex, and Honor, MediaTek has a greater footprint.

One of the more prevalent myths is that, based mainly on benchmark ratings, Qualcomm processors are stronger. However, MediaTek processors can be equally strong when it comes to real-world scenarios, especially in budget segments. At much cheaper costs, they concentrate on delivering high-end features.

Both firms have a number of chipsets configured across grades. Qualcomm has 200, 400, 600, and 800 Snapdragons, with performance also focused on the order. There is a range of versions in each series that have been introduced during the last few years. The greater the number of performances in that series, the more recent and strong. Qualcomm recently launched their flagship chip, the Snapdragon 845, which is the best and the fastest performing processor ever. This SoC is most likely to include most of the high-end appliances you’d see this year.

The method used by MediaTek to classify their processors is distinct. Generally, their entry and mid-level versions are coined with ‘MT67’ accompanied by a number of two digits. The higher the number in the given sequence, the faster the processor is. MediaTek’s luxury mid-range deals generally known as Helio P, going up the ladder, while their high-end ones go to Helio X. In both of these categories, there are various variations. The one with the highest number of models is the most strong.

Of course, not the only justification for having a smartphone is a decent processor, so it still helps to be able to decide which one you need. This helps clean away all the distractions and make an educated choice and a understanding. Above everything, you know what you really pay for, too.
