4 cores clocked @ 2.4 GHZ, for performance.
4 cores clocked @ 1.6 GHZ, for battery efficiency.
Buy still overall it is one of the finest packages among Mediatek's offerings.
David Tsia , 23 Jun 2017I do not understand why Samsung uses the MTK P20 instead of Exynos, or Qualcomm? They are far ... moreThe reason to choose Mediatek Helio P20 MIGHT be to maintain the price of the phone. Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 is too pricey for J7 max. Exynos 7880, even though it belongs to Samsung would increase the price of the phone. Exynos 7870 is last year's underpowered chip and is also already being used in J7 2017 & J7 Pro. It doesn't mean Helio P20 is cheap, but it is the most economical option for J7 max, while cutting off the amoled display, IP54 certification, WiFi dual band, the battery reduction to almost 10% and may be some build materials. When compared to J7 2017 & J7 Pro.
Inteligent Samsung, 23 Jun 2017 Go get the VIvo / oppo.. In this segment Oppo F1S and Vivo V5 doesn't has any Qualcomm or Exy... moreI do agree with you. Very well said. But be polite. Few points to note.
"HELIO P20 whose performance is more than Snapdragon 626"
No. Helio P20's performance is lesser than SD625, SD626 is way too far ahead.
"Exynos based A7 2017 at 32K which is like MTK P10 not even closed to P20 in performance."
No. A7 2017 is equipped with Exynos 7880 which is more powerful than SD625 & P20.
Sorted by power:
2. Exynos 7880
4. Helio P20
5. Exynos 7870
6. Helio P10
Helio beats SD625, 23 Jun 2017I am using P10 with Full HD and its very similar to SD625 performance.
Now its P20 , it wi... moreThese are Basemark scores.
P10 / CPU-1,000 / GPU-6,500
SD625 / CPU-1,400 / GPU-10,500
...and you say both are similar? Never.
Helio P20 / CPU-1,300 / GPU-9,500
This clearly shows P20 is unable to beat even SD625, SD626 is too far ahead. Neither in speed, nor in games.
Sony XA1 benefits over J7 prime :
IPS LCD display.
Scratch resistant glass.
23 MP camera.
Type C USB.
Lesser heat than j7 prime.
Its all in personal choices.
Anonymous, 23 Jun 2017but still samsung phone was the 1st ranking in the world...we love amoled
But still, what do we love more? The amoled displays or the Android OS?
Samsung is 1st only in sales. The 1st ever Android phone is HTC Dream. It is HTC who introduced Android, when no one trusted it. Did you know that before Android was purchased by Google, the original developers went to Samsung but alas.

Mediatek P20 is very powerfull and it has PumpExpress 3.0 which is like Fast charging 3. Gaming is also very good, unfortunately is not that well optimazed like Adreno Gpus and some games might lag even if soc is more than enough or some games will say Your Device is not yet supported... Also Snapdragon 626 is more power efficient while still performs very well.
In j7 max samsung use the mtk processor. But it is the heating processor. Snapdragon will be better.
Zizi, 23 Jun 2017this phone will not do better than xperia xa1..full hd screen will make p20 sweat beads..First use Helio than Comment...Neither you owned XA1 nor any P20 ...Stop misleading here with MTK hate speach.

Now its P20 , it will beat SD626 in Gaming performance. Sony XA1 is better only in Rear cam dept , other things are crap in front of J7 Max specs.
David Tsia , 23 Jun 2017I do not understand why Samsung uses the MTK P20 instead of Exynos, or Qualcomm? They are far ... more Go get the VIvo / oppo.. In this segment Oppo F1S and Vivo V5 doesn't has any Qualcomm or Exynos chipset , rather a MTK only - Thats too poor MTK chip that doesn't support more than 720P resolution and those oppo/vivo are just ovrrated china phones unlike Samsung which is world's no1.
No one asked you here which phone do you want , so stop misleading and get what you like
MTK is not good but its flaghips will kill budget exynos/qualcomm chipsets and here J7 max has P20 which is premium SOC by MTK not a cheap one .
at 18000 , Samsung can only give Exynos 7870 which is 1.6ghz octa + MALI 830 MP2 which is worse for gaming in 1080P displays. Its poor in performance than Entry level Snapdragon 435 in GPU performance while J7 max had not reqular MTK chip , It has HELIO P20 whose performance is more than Snapdragon 626 that was used in samsung C7 pro.
there is no branded power full under 20K which is as powerful as J7 max.
Snapdragon SD626 C7 Pro at 26K , Exynos based A7 2017 at 32K which is like MTK P10 not even closed to P20 in performance...your choice. if you don't want MTK , spend more why looking at sub 18K phones ? when you don't like MTK , why getting oppo/vivo ?
Anonymous, 21 Jun 2017Are you sure, cause I've checked a lot of websites and most of them are saying that it's clock... moreYes i have checked in cpuz. Octacore upto 2.39 ghz ..confirmed.
I do not understand why Samsung uses the MTK P20 instead of Exynos, or Qualcomm? They are far better than MTK in terms of heating issue.
I would prefer Oppo, or Vivo in this segment
