"CPU is just 15% of the SoC"
places where snapdragons excel at: image signal processor, video signal processor, locationing, audio signal processor, motion core and pretty much every signal processor in it.
places where Apple's SoC excel at: image signal processor
Mediatek chip are better in ram management and battery efficiency. Getting updates are not the issue of mediatek because they have released drivers for updating to thier popular chips like mt6577,6589,6592,6591 and etc. Blame your manufacturer for updates. And mediatek chips are cooler than snapdagons chip.
Mediatek chipset no thanks.....
Qualcomm chipset will be my buy.....
Mediatek is cheap, more easily to built custom rom... I have lenovo s920, and xiaomi redmi note which have plenty of custom rom... Better battery live and not so hot when playing games...
I dont like MediaTek Chipset. I think they are not good as Qualcomm. Smartphones with MediaTek chipset hardly gets android updates.
but MTK chipset devices has a low value when it comes to updating the android version..
parasky, 04 Nov 2014Hopefully this'll be the chipset that will be in the international version, although Snapdrago... moreI doubt it, given how Mediatek is notorious for being far cheaper than Qualcomm (Snapdragon). It would only hinder their profit margin if they went with Snapdragon.
Hopefully this'll be the chipset that will be in the international version, although Snapdragon seems to be more widespread than MediaTek processors in countries like the UK and US.
