The MediaTek Helio X23 employs Tri-cluster, deca-core (4 x 1.4GHz A53 + 4 x 1.8GHz A53, 2 x 2.3GHz A72) 64-bit CPU clocked at 2.3GHz whereas Snapdragon 625 is a high power efficient chip with octa-core (8 x 2.0GHz Cortex-A53 cores) CPU based on 14nm architecture. On another side, Helio X23 uses 20nm process which is not that great as SD625, but still a good option. The GPU on X23 is Mali-T880 MP4 and Adreno 506 on SD625.
Both the platforms are using LPDDR3 RAM with eMMC 5.1 storage; where it is limited to max. 4GB on Helio X23, but SD625 has no limit. In the camera department, both have capabilities to bear dual camera setup, up to 32MP on X23 and Up to 24 MP on SD660 SD625. When it comes to Quick charge support, both have no problem with it unless manufacturer locks it to save some money. The device with X23 can bring the resolution up to WQXGA (2560 x 1600), unfortunately not the case with SD625. The Snapdragon 625 powered devices are restricted to max. Full HD display.
Both the chipsets have their own pros and cons. The Helio X23 has a powerful CPU which is not the case with Snapdragon 625, but Adreno 506 GPU used on SD625 is a better pick when it comes to graphical performance. All in all, Snapdragon 625 is not as strong as X23, but all around a balanced chip. Definitely, Helio X23 looks good enough at least on paper, but we have to test lot more in different conditions.

anjan, 09 Aug 2017Which one is better lenovo z2 plus or k8 note? In terms of performanceIt's a pretty close race. This phone clocks out at a slightly higher speed, but it's not enough to notice in day to day usage
can you answer anyone please
1. is this phone available 'always on display'
2. is available call recording
Ashwany , 09 Aug 2017Its a very good mobile at this range.. Already flat by its features. 😍ԅ... moreBut in Lenovo K4 note, Touch Pad not working in most of the phones in 1 yr. Google it!!
N-Gin, 10 Aug 2017Redmi note 4 or this phone?It has a power bank inside it...
Anonymous, 09 Aug 2017Cortex a53 better than a72?? Adreno 506 better than Mali t880?. I know snapdragon is mainstrea... moreBy the hardware stats yes. Not by GPL compliance and help for OEMs though. Unfortunately until today, any OEM that puts out a Mediatek inside device would have a harder time keeping the firmware/software side as regularly updated as their Snapdragon driven counterparts simply because it seems that Mediatek are just plain reluctant to play ball. Let's not even begin to discuss what can or can't external 3rd ROM devs do if Mediatek can easily tell OEMs off.
I donttt care if my friend goin laugh at me because Im driving Benz C180 to work.
No matter what I will buy this phone and trade with my lagging galaxy Note 4.
This phone is real beast for a reasonable price it could be one of most selling devices with screen as big as 5.5
I usually prefer SD w/ Adreno but MTK x23 w/ Mali-T880 MP4 is better than SD625, a lot of SD fanboys should understand and learn how to compare chipsets, CPU and GPU, not just the name that it carries
all in all, this seems to be the best phone Lenovo has released which does not belong in the flagship series, way to go Leno
Adolf Gibson, 09 Aug 2017Plz sir tell .. if screen mirror feature or wifi display sharing available or not??It will be available. Be sure
Plz sir tell .. if screen mirror feature or wifi display sharing available or not??

Which one is better lenovo z2 plus or k8 note? In terms of performance
you are so wrong. the helio x23 has 2 cortex a72 cores which are more powerful that cortex a53 on the snapdragon 625...

Anonymous, 09 Aug 2017Much better than sd625 but no matter what you snapdragon fanboys won't be satisfied. Snapdragon 625 is far better than mediatek helio x23
The Lenovo P2 has snapdragon 625
no metter who has more Cores

give you the best performence .
