Item Description

Hello MI fans, which processor is your smartphone running on? Let's try to compare and find out the advantages and disadvantages of each. Snapdragon 625 Versus Helio x20: Comparing Reference Mid-Budget Chipsets According to reports from analysts and smartphone makers, the flagships are not the most sought-after or government employees, but mid-range models are balanced. Therefore, there is a serious battle in this price category that also includes chipset manufacturers. In early 2016, Qualcomm introduced the first 600-series chip based on the 14 nm manufacturing process - Snapdragon 625. Around the same time, MediaTek showed the world the first ten-core processor for mobile technology - Helio X20 (MT6797) . BEIM ALIGN It's a pre-top developer (cooler is only the overclocked version of Helio X25), but in terms of price and features, it's average. There are many smartphones that are based on both chipsets. Qualcomm's idea, interested in many manufacturers, including Xiaomi. The MediaTek chipset was popular too, but the market leaders were cooler about it. But Xiaomi and smaller Chinese companies have put together a good selection of suitable devices. To find out which chipset is better, it is worth taking a closer look at the pros and cons. Advantages and disadvantages of Helio x20 Advantages: Flexible multi-cluster CPU configuration. The Helio x20 chipset contains 10 cores grouped in 3 clusters. The first consists of a pair of high-frequency (2.1 GHz) Cortex A72, which are designed for heavy-duty tasks and can only load 1 or 2 cores. The second - contains 4 Cortex A53 with a high frequency (1.85 GHz) for multithreaded tasks and has a reduced consumption. The third cluster is identical to the second, but works at reduced frequencies (1.4 GHz) to save even more charge. By dynamically switching between the cores, you can choose the optimal balance between performance and power consumption depending on the current task. Two-channel memory controller. The chipset is equipped with a two-channel memory controller, which theoretically makes the Helio x20 faster when starting and switching between programs and when processing background tasks. A powerful screen controller. The MediaTek chipset is equipped with a display controller that supports a QHD resolution (up to 2560 x 1600 pixels) and works in FullHD with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. Such properties are closer to the flagships and make smartphones based on Helio x20 better suited for displaying high-resolution content and working with virtual reality. Price. MediaTek gains market share through low prices, and yet its chips are relatively cheap. Thanks to this, Chinese manufacturers were initially able to offer smartphones at attractive costs. Cons: problems with autonomy. Configuring multiple clusters looks attractive in theory and infographics from MediaTek marketers, but in practice, not everything is as smooth. The system does not always evaluate the load correctly and activates the most optimal CPU configuration, which is afflicted with rapid loading consumption and rapid heating. For example, in applications with 4 A53 cores, A72 cores may be inappropriately used, which are overly insatiable in this situation. Heat dissipation. Helio x20 is manufactured using 20nm process technology, which, while not the worst option today, is below 14 and 16nm in terms of energy efficiency. Integrated MediaTek modems consume more than Qualcomm. For this reason (and also because of the not always high-quality optimization of software by Chinese developers), Helio x20 smartphones tend to overheat and slow down with prolonged use. Problems updating the operating system. MediaTek is known for its particular, selective attitude towards manufacturer support. There are often situations where a new version of Android and drivers for budget chipsets are released just a few months after the release of the Google operating system (like MT6737). With the top providers they wait three years for the promise. So far, only a few smartphone models have received Android 6 for Helio x10, and owners of Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 have waited six months for Android 7 for Helio x20. No progress has been made in this regard, which is not encouraging. Advantages and Disadvantages of Snapdragon 625 Pros: Subtle process technology. The Snapdragon 625 chipset is manufactured using the thinnest and most advanced (mass-produced from March 2017) 14nm process technology. For this reason, it is characterized by low energy consumption and low heat dissipation. High frequency. All Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 cores have an ARM Cortex A53 microarchitecture, are not divided into groups and operate at a frequency of up to 2 GHz. The frequency changes dynamically depending on the load. This enables fast processing of tasks that are optimized for multithreaded computing. Supports USB 3.0. Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 supports USB 3.0, which provides high connection speed when working with OTG flash drives, external SSDs, and other accessories. Powerful modem. Snapdragon 625 integrates a communication module that supports all current communication standards up to LTE Cat 7. It can work with any frequency range and simultaneously activate two SIM cards in LTE networks. Cons: Cortex A53 architecture. The Cortex A53 microarchitecture is a balance between high performance and low power consumption. The specific power per cycle is considerably lower than that of the A72. For tasks that require 1-2 fast cores, the Snapdragon 625 MT6797 will give way noticeably. A more modest screen control. The display controller in the Snapdragon 625 chipset can only work in FullHD (up to 1920 x 1200 pixels) and only with a refresh rate of up to 60 Hz. Using a smartphone for VR may not be enough, making your eyes tired quicker. GP Adreno 506 may be inferior to Mali T880 MP4. The theoretical graphics performance of the Qualcomm Adreno 506 is higher than that of the Mali T880 MP4 in MT6797. However, due to better optimization of the Mali software, the MediaTech chip can be ahead of the opponent when his temperature is normal. Results: To summarize clearly and decide which is better Qualcomm with Snapdragon 625 or MediaTek Helio X20, the most important parameters and functions of the chipsets are summarized in a table. SoC, on the side of which the advantage for the selected element is observed, receives a plus, which lags behind - a minus. Several conclusions can be drawn based on the comparison. So in terms of performance, the Helio x20 has greater potential than the Snapdragon 625. In theory, it is faster, has a powerful processor, supports QHD screens. In practice, however, all of these benefits are offset by the tendency to overheat, and the actual speed of both chipsets is roughly on par. Even a two-channel memory controller does not save. Given the awkward moment of overheating, as well as the obvious advantages of the Qualcomm chipset in terms of modem and communication, we can conclude that the Snapdragon 625 is more balanced. The situation with operating system updates is also not on the MTK side. Their graphic representation is Xiaomi smartphones. The first Redmi Note 4 (on MTK) has not yet received any updates for Android 7, and it is not known (at the official level) whether they will even be available. But for Redmi Note 4X (at Qualcomm) - a beta version of the seven for testers appeared in January, shortly after the presentation of this smartphone on the Indian market. If updates are important to you, the Snapdragon 625 is clearly better. See you in the MI community!

But there was a fly in the ointment

Cell phone processors, d. H. Smartphones and tablets, etc. They became very powerful and effective. Together they have become a masterpiece of performance, efficiency and reliability. These mobile processors can perform various tasks easily and efficiently. Due to the high demand in the smartphone market, there is enormous competition. They are used in cell phones and tablets.

They are preferred by manufacturers in top-level devices for cell phones. They are also visible on medium-range mobile devices. The most popular processors. This chipset is currently used in almost all flagship devices. A cell phone requires a maximum of ten cores.

We'll help you choose. Please note that each of these chipsets has different models.

How will the 64-bit Mediatek MT6752 compare to the 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615?

At the time of writing, the main theme of the wireless market was the phrase "64-bit processor". This term has been cast as a spell on every corner and has been actively used by marketers to promote devices. A 64-bit processor is an important step, not just because of the 64-bit chip, but also because of other additional features that it brought to portable devices.

Let's look at their main differences, advantages and disadvantages over others. They make more productive mid-range chipsets for a low price. Concern: Heat begins to be generated as you multitask, and high temperatures cause the battery to discharge quickly. Despite the fact that they promised their new chipset models won't have a problem, that doesn't stop there and the problem remains. This is one of the top processors with better overall performance. There is no delay and the whole process is done at the speed of light.

There are enough 64-bit chips out there today, but the most talked about are the Mediatek MT6752 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 615. Both chips are used in many mid-range and high-end smartphones, but which one is better?

This article compares two popular Chinese phones with 64-bit chips. By the way, Qualcomm stands and the honor Mediatek protects the iOcean MT6752 Rock. Both phones have undergone popular test tests to see which one offers the best performance. Until we get to the comparison and the results, let's take a look at the features and functions of both processors.

Conclusion: which one is better?

Which chipset do you use in your cellphone and tablet? These are actually the media libraries of the most impressive 700 single-core chips. They are a huge company with lots of customers and money, 810 is selling well, they are not going to die anytime soon. He's done a great job in the past.

What do these companies have in common?

Probably because they'll be using custom kernels again. The processor is undoubtedly the heart of the smartphone. As the better processor properties, the greater the benefits of using the phone. But which of them will be superior in execution if you become one against the other?


The MT6752 has eight 1.7 GHz ARM Cortex 53 cores and a Mali T760 GPU with 4G LTE support. The processor supports the camera with up to 16 MP, and video recordings are possible in a resolution of 1080p with 60 frames per second.

Snapdragon 615 is in turn the industry's first 64-bit Cortex-A53 CPU with eight cores. This chip has 4 cores at 1.7 GHz and 4 at 1 GHz. The Adreno 405 GPU supports screen resolutions of up to 2560 x 1600 pixels and cameras of up to 21 MP.

10nm manufacturing process advantage

Let's take a quick look at the specifications of both processors.


These cores are in a maximum minimum configuration with three clusters.





As you may already know, the small size of the matrix means that a larger number of chips can fit into the chip, which not only lowers manufacturing costs but also increases production efficiency.

Both chips have their advantages: Mediatek appears to be more performance-oriented, and the Snapdragon 615 appears to be more media-friendly.

Now we can take a closer look at the processors and their functions during the tests and see which ones give the best results.

Mediatek MT6752 vs. Snapdragon 615: Vellamo App

Vellamo started out as a mobile online tester and then expanded into two main parts. The HTML5 part measures the performance of mobile devices while surfing the network, and the metal part measures the single-core performance of the CPU subsystem of the mobile processor.

How do I measure camera support?

Compared to its predecessors, the 835 has a matrix reduction of 36%. Compared to the older version, it offers 25% faster graphics and 60 times more display color.


This integration provides a special platform for the Horde.


Before we look at these chips, let's start with the cutting edge technology of mobile processors. A chip with many different functions, B, is called A or “System on a Chip”.


Vellamo is capable of evaluating scrolling and scaling, 3D graphics, video performance, internal storage speed, peak bandwidth, and more.

After this web test, the performance looks about the same. This means customers get the same efficiency when scaling, loading, 3D graphics and video streaming.

The manufacture of silicon chips is not easy. It is actually a very complex process that involves many expensive cars. It takes several weeks to manufacture a chip from a silicon wafer to ready-to-sell chips. One of the parameters of the manufacturing system is known as the "process node" and it determines how small the transistors are and how small the gaps between the transistors are.

As you can imagine, the less you make a chip, the harder it gets. Today that number has dropped between 28 and 14 nm. The main thing about technological units is that, although it becomes more and more difficult for them to achieve these increasingly smaller goals, the advantage is that the chips use less power and use less heat, which is very important for mobile devices.

Mediatek MT6752 vs. Snapdragon 615: Ludashi App

The Android version of Ludashi is a performance testing application for phones and tablets. With 8 tests, you can easily determine the performance of mobile device and compare it to another.


Second, it's a quad-core processor, not an octa-core processor. However, the differences between Model B should not be so great that the overall results change. Performance testing is a complex science in that it is difficult to meet the exact conditions for each test run. Even changes in temperature can change the test results. Another possibility is to simulate real scenarios, e.g. B. start a game and monitor performance at the same time.

The maximum number of points at 60 frames per second. However, while we keep this in mind, numbers can come in handy. However, the order remains the same. Here are the results, one graph for single-core testing and one for multi-core testing. Multi-core tests set the benchmark in all available cores.

Ultimately, the OPPO R5 results are far behind what the iOcean M6752 has to offer. This means that the M6752's single-core performance is better than the OPPO R5, as the MT6752's results are almost double those of Snapdragon's.

Mediatek MT6752 vs Snapdragon 615: Game performance

Since both phones have a screen with a resolution of 1080p, their single-chip system should use the same amount of energy. In this test, the difference in the SoC was determined using well-known games.

Hashes, types of bubbles, tables, and prime numbers

The first start occurred when the device was cool and there were no other applications. Third, a large table is shuffled a million times and finally the first 10 million prime numbers are calculated. The total time it took to complete all of these actions is shown at the end of the test run.

Hashes and sorts are better. The second of my two user tests uses a two-dimensional physics engine to simulate the water being poured into the container. One drop of water is added per picture and the game is rated at 60 frames per second. The benchmark measures how many drops are actually processed and how many are overlooked.


The iOcean M6752 is equipped with the Mali-T760 graphics processor. The speed at the exit to the main screen of the game Need for Speed ​​is nominal, but the Mali GPU loses a bit of graphical clarity.

The OPPO R5, in turn, has an Adreno 405 graphics card, which has proven to be better overall. Although the smoothness and quality are excellent on both phones, the overall gaming experience with the Snapdragon 615 is just as good as the MT6752.

It works well on all tests and doesn't seem to have much of an impact on overheating or throttling. With the other two processors, there seems to be little choice.The phone is available in three colors: dark gray, gold and super smooth matte black with stylish silver accents. Thanks to the impressive battery properties of its predecessor, the battery should easily last from moderate to heavy use during the day.

The device also has an infrared sensor and a fingerprint sensor on the back of the device under the rear camera. Then we move on to benchmarks and comparisons. Check out our full comparison to find out more. This is more of an overclocked version.

NBA 2015 is a new game at this time that requires good processor and graphics card performance. iOcean M6752 gets along with the game fairly freely and only brakes a couple of times, while Snapdragon 615 is really disappointed with this game. The processor was having a lot of gameplay issues and overall the picture looked sluggish.

A slight difference in clock speed will not have a significant impact on actual performance. To learn more about the difference between the two, check out our full comparison below. It has eight large cores. At the end of this message you will also get a list of smartphones with this processor.

Hope this is useful for you when looking to buy a smartphone. Now let me explain them in detail. It uses more cores in its processors. Now they are optimizing their processors to be more energy efficient, but are lagging behind their competitors in terms of battery life. The performance of their processors is very good. But we can see it all practically when we have enough rama. Now we come to the problem of heating. All processors deliver high temperatures when performing tasks.

Other tests:



Mediatek MT6752 and Snapdragon 615


Yes, they put all of these things in their chips. The performance is very good. They are very good at multitasking, gaming, and heavy and intense tasks. Yes, the problem is battery life. Don't worry that all of this is in the early stages when they hit the mobile communications market. These processors are very energy efficient and use 5 watts or less of electricity. However, we can only see them on smartphones or tablets.

In addition, processors offer a 15 percent increase in computing power with the same power consumption and a 50 percent reduction in power loss at a constant clock rate. This means that the smartphone's camcorder can be used to measure the heart rate; direct contact with the human body is not required. The advantages include image noise reduction and a particularly short exposure time of 200 milliseconds.


Snapdragon 615



Mediatek MT6752

Mediatek MT6752 versus Snapdragon 615: Conclusion

Although both processors offer high paper standards and can apparently pull anything, the iOcean MT6752's MT6752 actually performed much better.

What do you think will be the best overall? But it is also true that the latter's latest chipset was very well fortified in terms of autonomy and performance. Because of this, it's best to look at this to see who wins. This means that it is very likely that its structural components will be very similar. In the middle, however, the situation changes significantly. As a result, there are performance differences that can affect the user. Why is that a circumstance?

Experience before technical details

This type of phone is designed to integrate available components so that in most cases the price to the user does not exceed 100-150 euros. In fact, we shouldn't be guided by the technical details of these processors. Yes, it is true that the choice of a smartphone model or another can be determined by the type of processor. But when we introduce this we will find a bunch of dates that sometimes get out of hand. Especially if we want to focus on the characteristics of its components: number of nanometers, download speed, modem type, compatibility and support, etc.

Any processor is good enough to use most applications, but when it comes to something complicated, 64-bit processor Mediatek can turn on the afterburner and handle large loads competently and smoothly. It seems to me that Oppo made a huge mistake by using Snapdragon 615 instead of Mediatek MT6752 in their device. Not only because the MTK chip is more powerful, but also because it lowers the price of a phone. This explains why iOcean is selling its phone internationally for just over $ 200 and the Oppo price is approaching $ 500.

If you've dealt with any of these processors, please share your thoughts in the comments.
