A smartphone is a very essential part of our life and for the best smartphone, we need a powerful mobile processor. The processor comes with cores. A processor executes what you want your smartphone to do. Here are the top 5 best mobile processors.
The Top 5 Best Mobile Processors Are:
1. Qualcomm Snapdragon
It is one of the popular smartphone processors and known for its Snapdragon brand which is responsible for releasing mobile processors and LTE modems. Starting from 2005, Snapdragon went through a lot of series – S1, S2, S3, S4, S200, S400, S600, S800, S801, S805, S808, S810, S820, and S821. Qualcomm processors in medium to high-end phone market is either an S820 or 821. Snapdragon processors also produce less heat compared to other processors.

2. Apple Mobile processor
Apple makes contracts with processor manufacturing companies mainly Samsung and TSMC for making custom-built processors that suits their design and performance expectations rather than manufacturing any microprocessor. Apple A10 Fusion is the latest processor which is used in iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. It is a Quad Core built on 16 nm FinFET process capable of running at 2.4GHz speeds and a Hexa Core PowerVR GPU. It is twice faster and improves graphics processing by 50% compared to its previous A9 and A10.
3. Intel Atom and Core M processor
These processors are based on an X86 architecture which is powerful than the ARM but consume more power compared to ARM architecture. It supports all major mobile operating systems. The latest Atom processor is mainly used in tablet manufacturers from Microsoft Surface, Asus, Dell, Lenovo, HP. As of 2016, Asus ZenFone. Core M processors are used in 12-inch Apple MacBook and HP Chromebook.

The process is Quad Core with 256 GPU cores capable of 4K video capabilities. The chips are built on 20 nm technology. It is best for mobile gaming. Tegra has a poor record of heat generation and battery performance.
Helio X20 and Helio X25 are the latest processors from media Tek which are used in smartphones and tablets. It is popular with Chinese manufacturer mostly used on smartphones like Xiaomi, Meizu, LeEco Le, Yu etc. The PowerVR GPU of MediaTek is better than most of the processors. MediaTek produces less heat than Qualcomm and other processors, is cheaper with good performance.
