Open Thread: MediaTek vs Qualcomm Snapdragon

MediaTek vs Qualcomm

As you guys may already know, Taiwan’s MediaTek are working on the upcoming X30 series of chipsets. The next MediaTek flagship CPU, which is to be built under the 10nm architecture, will go head on with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 830, also rumored to be built with a 10nm architecture.

MediaTek vs Qualcomm Snapdragon

Knowing this, we decided to ask you guys: what are your thoughts?

We all know MediaTek and Qualcomm are kings not only in the Chinese smartphone market, but also amongst other budget phone makers.

Just take a look at the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 which came with a MediaTek Helio X10, soon followed by a Pro version sporting a Qualcomm Snapdragon 650.

I hope we can all agree there isn’t a “best” CPU, as it all depends on a ton of different factors: performance, power efficiency, heating problems and price, the latter being very important especially on cheaper devices.

But we know you guys will find reasons to prefer one over another, thus we decided to create an Open Thread, where you can write your ideas and opinions freely without going off topic, not that it has ever stopped you before!

Now tell us: what’s your favorite CPU maker and why? What processor does your phone run on?
