Which chip-set is better Media-Tek Vs Snapdragon?

As we know in present day most of the smartphones made by Media-Tek or Snapdragon  chip-set.

So in order to find out which chip-set is better among this two,first of all we need to know how these chip-sets are different from each other.

Which chip-set is better  Media-Tek Vs Snapdragon? 1

Now, let’s explain them in details.First of all i explain about Media-tek chip-set and then explain you about Snapdragon chip-set.
Media-tek chip-set in details:
It is a Taiwanese based company. It uses more cores in it’s processors like octa-core,hexa-core,deca-core etc.

Battery Life:

The media-tek chip-sets are known to be more power draining and results in less battery life.Now they are optimizing their processors to be more power efficient but still lags behind their competition in terms of battery life.


Performance wise their processors are very good. Due the availability of extra cores,Media-tek processors can handle intensive and heavy tasks and they are very good at multi-tasking as well. But we can see all this practically if we have sufficient Ram on them.As you know that more cores demand more Ram to give best performance.

Heating Issue :

Now let’s talk about heating issue. All the processors deliver heat while performing any tasks like gaming,net surfing or normal uses  as well . Media-tek processors produces more heat (more cores means more heat) than the Snapdragon.Now a days heating issue somehow improved .


If we talk about graphics,Media-tek employs Mali graphics which is a third party graphics vendor.So graphics architecture is different from CPU and its performance may not match with CPU. It is really important to match the performances of CPU and GPU(graphics) so that the whole chip-set performs properly. 

Snapdragon chip-set in details:

Snapdragon chip-sets are manufactured by Qualcomm which is an American based company.

Snapdragon chip-sets are not only just CPU’s they incorporate other many processors in their chip-sets. This is the main difference between Snapdragon and other chip-sets.

Snapdragon chip-sets are named as SoC’s (System-on-a-chip) which means their chip-sets(SoC’s) have a CPU, GPU(Adreno Graphics), Image processor, Media processor, Digital Signal Processor, Cellular Modem unit,
Wifi-Module, Radio Module,GPS Module etc. All these modules and Processors are inside of a snapdragon chip.Yes they incorporated all these things inside their chip-sets. Hence their chips are more costly.

Battery Life:

Snapdragon chip-sets are best in terms of power efficiency compared to all other chip-sets.


Performance wise Snapdragon chip-sets perform really well. In multi-tasking, gaming, handling heavy and intensive tasks they are much more better.

Heating Issue :

Snapdragon Processors generally produces less heat compared to Media-tek. So Snapdragon Processors is preferable according to the heating issue.


If we talk about graphics, they manufacture their own graphics called Adreno Graphics and incorporate into their chips. So here the performance of CPU and GPU are matched properly.
