Is MediaTek a Good Processor?

  • MediaTek processors are available in all the low sizes that you need. All the MediaTek 5G chipsets are 7nm or less and soon there would be 4nm MediaTek chipsets as well. Against this, some Snapdragon chipsets are 8nm in size as well.
  • MediaTek always ensures to include the 5G modem within the chipset so that you can get a better smartphone experience. Against this, Snapdragon and many other chipset brands use external 5G modems in the chipsets still and this is a kind of disadvantage for the users.
  • MediaTek devised the art of supporting dual SIMs with the same network quality. This means your 4G smartphone with a MediaTek chipset would support dual 4G SIM and the same for the 5G smartphone. Put any SIM on any slot and it would offer the same network quality, unlike other chipsets where they force you to put your main SIM in slot 1 for a better network.
  • MediaTek chipsets support most custom software and have fully unveiled the resource architecture of the devices. You can now flash your desired custom ROMs on your MediaTek-powered devices and also install Google Camera without any issues.
  • And the most evident advantage that is one of my favorites is the cost of the smartphones with the MediaTek chipsets. If you compare smartphones with MediaTek and Snapdragon chipsets of the same capability, keeping all the other specs similar, you would find the one with the Mediatek chipset about 25% more affordable and cost-effective for you.
  • Also, as I have been saying a lot in my blogs, MediaTek is not just a part of your smartphones. In fact, there are high chances that it can be a part of any smart or digital object in your home. For instance, most smart TVs have Mediatek chipsets and all Alexa smart speakers from Amazon have Mediatek chipsets.
  • Heating issues in the smartphones and lagging after some time
  • Lack of an open resource architecture
