As the processor is the most important part of the mobile as it is responsible for handling all the processes undergoing inside a Smartphone.
That’s why choosing the right processor becomes the most important issue for normal customers. When we talk about mobile processors, there are only two leading processor manufacturing companies available. MediaTek and Qualcomm Snapdragon.
In Today’s latest technology world, mobile manufacturing companies are using both MediaTek as well as Qualcomm Snapdragon processor as per their requirement to design a good budget smartphone.
It’s a bit confusing for a normal customer to decide whether to buy a MediaTek-based mobile or a Snapdragon-based mobile at a good price.
Here I am Today to resolve the confusion between the MediaTek and Snapdragon processors and will give you a fair suggestion by comparing both the processor’s different series.
So stay tuned till the end. MediaTek is a very old Chinese processor manufacturing company, developed its first processor in 2001.
But the Qualcomm Snapdragon is the latest processor manufacturing company that developed its first processor in 2006.

Initially, the Qualcomm Snapdragon was not very successful but now due to a very huge and highly professional Research and Development team.
They have developed very high performance and better efficiency processors such Qualcomm Snapdragon 625, 650, 652, 653, etc for budget phones.
The processors are judges by the performance given by them and the GPU provided by the processor.
The MediaTek processors do not have their own GPU developing team. They use the GPU namedMali developed by the ARM. The problem is not with the Mali GPU, it’s a very good GPU.
But the MediaTek, in order to reduce the cost of the processors they used the lower version of the Mali GPU.
That’s why the Graphic performance given by the MediaTek processor is not very good in budget phones.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon develop their own GPU called Adreno-based GPU. Due to their own GPU, they have given the best Graphic performance and used their higher version of Adreno-based GPU.
In the case of GPU, the Qualcomm Snapdragon is much better than the MediaTek.
The MediaTek has always played the numbers game by just increasing the cores of the CPU and developing the Octacore, Deca-core, or Hexacore processors at very high frequency.
Due to a large number of cores at such a huge frequency, the processors are not able to become much more efficient. They have just consumed more power and leading to the heating of the processors.
We must always remember that in the case of a Smartphone more core does not mean better performance, there are certain other things also we have to keep in mind while selecting a Processor.
Qualcomm Snapdragon processors
Whereas the Qualcomm Snapdragon processors are all balanced processors and are well versed in giving better performance. The Snapdragon processors are not available in the Deca-core category.
In the case of the Processors and the Power Consumption again the Qualcomm Snapdragon is better than the MediaTek processor.
Lithography in simple words can be defined as the Semiconductor Size or the distance between the two semiconductor terminals, the smaller the distance between the two terminals faster will the data will travel along with the terminals.
The MediaTek processors that are normally used in the budget Smartphone’s that are MediaTek 6737, MediaTek 6750, and MediaTek 6753 are all available
in the lithography of 28 nm.
Whereas the Qualcomm Snapdragon processors are available in 14 nm lithography, which is half to that of the MediaTek.
So the data Transfer rate in the Qualcomm Snapdragon processors is faster than the MediaTek.
By comparing all the above fields, I can say that the Qualcomm Snapdragon latest processors (Snapdragon 625, 650, 652, 653).
Qualcomm Snapdragon is much better than the MediaTek processors.
In today’s situation, there is no processor of the MediaTek that can withstand ahead of the Qualcomm Snapdragon processor on the same segment.
I suggest you always buy a Qualcomm Snapdragon-based Smartphone.
