With so many mobile phones and operating systems out there, choosing one can truly mess with the brain. Not only this, even a single phone gets marketed using different dynamics like battery, processors, camera, storage, frame rate, glass type, etc. When it comes to these factors, a phone processor becomes really important. It is the brain of the phone and helps it run smoothly. Currently, there are numerous processors being marketed with different names and technicalities. For a common person, sailing through these could be confusing. Today, we will be helping you understand some of the most common mobile processors in the market.

Qualcomm Snapdragon

It is one of the most famous processors in the market. This processor is used as a marketing tool that symbolizes power, efficiency, and performance. Go to any shop and you might see this in the higher-end phones. However, the lower end of this processor is also used in cheaper phones to provide them with the required efficiency and performance. Qualcomm Snapdragon processors come in different tiers, such as Snapdragon 400, 600, 700, 800, and 888, each catering to different segments of the market and offering different levels of performance and capabilities. The higher the number, the greater the power.

MediaTek Helio

This processor is generally called the competitor of QS; however, it is an affordable version of Qualcomm and is generally found in mid-range smartphones. This processor is manufactured by MediaTek, which is based in Taiwan. The Helio line of processors has options for different levels of power, starting with the budget-friendly Helio P-series and reaching the top-performing Helio X-series. These processors are a favorite among phone makers looking to offer strong yet affordable devices, as they deliver great performance, save on power, and support cutting-edge features like AI and 5G connectivity.

Apple A-series

If you are an Apple buff, this is the processor that you must know about. It is used in the IOS operating system and offers excellent performance that allows people to multitask without any lagging. They are known for their high performance and power efficiency and have consistently been at the forefront of mobile processor technology since their introduction in 2010. In recent years, the A-series processors have also incorporated advanced features such as artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities. Here are the different processors out there: Apple A4, A5, A6, A7, A8, A9, A11, A13, A14, and A15.

The A13 processor is a 6-core processor that is used in iPhone 11 series. A15 is the latest in the market and is the most powerful.

Samsung Exynos

Samsun, alike Apple, uses its own processor. If you are a Samsung fan, you must know about this processor. Manufactured by Samsung Electronics, this processor is used to power Samsung-manufactured phones and tablets. It is often seen as an alternative to the more-potent Qualcomm Snapdragon series. The many types of Exynos processors available in the market include the Exynos 990, Exynos 2100, Exynos 9810, and the Exynos 9611. Exynos 2100 is the most powerful processor that you can currently find. The only thing that happens with Samsun is that their processors are known for lags. However, recently it has seen changes.

As a person surrounded by technology, you must know about what the different technologies are. It helps in making informed decisions and saves us from losses. If you find a higher processor to be expensive, you may buy it from sites like eBay that offer excellent cell phones & accessories at a cheaper price. This will save you a good amount that you can use to buy your next month’s Netflix subscription.
