There is a massive list of companies which manufacture smartphone, but coming to a processor, there are only two significant players. One of them is Snapdragon, on which the majority of devices run, and the other one is MediaTek.
MediaTek is also in the market since long with several issues. Most of the smartphone companies prefer snapdragon, but that trend seems to be broken especially with the budget smartphone range. MediaTek has come up with multiple upgrades, due to which the companies producing mid-range smartphone are considering the other option seriously.
As one more option has arisen, it is buyers who will be having the confusion what to chose from as there are already various smartphone launching on a regular basis. We here will be comparing the MediaTek and Snapdragon, marking its positive side, negative side and finally finding out the winner between the two.
Comparison between SD 636 Vs SD 660 Vs MediaTek Helio P60 :
MediaTek Helio P60 has been built with a 12 nm production process, that is better than the 14 nm production process of the Snapdragon 660. This should make the new MediaTek SoC more power-efficient and provide a very low energy consumption. On the other hand, Snapdragon 660 has a higher clock frequency and an Adreno 512 GPU which I define better than the Mali G72 MP3 found on its opponent. So, the Snapdragon 660 may have better performance both in daily use and gaming. The Snapdragon 660 has a slightly better modem as well (Cat. 13 vs Cat. 7 DL), and the battery charging is faster thanks to the Quick Charge 4.0.
But the MediaTek Helio P60 has an advanced dedicated module for AI. Which can perform deep-learning facial detection, scene recognition, AR and MR acceleration, and more smart tasks: it is called NeuroPilot. At last, MediaTek Helio P60 should be included in smartphones with a more affordable price than the one with Snapdragon 660.
