I use many chipset mobiles Snapdragon, Helio, Ios , exynos etc bt all in one the helio chips are not very costly and that price range it’s work very awesome & perfect. Snapdragon processors are very good bt it’s very costly so you have the normal range phones so you go to helio not snapdragon bt you have heavy task or performance or Gaming’s so you go snapdragon otherwise IOS. That’s your choice.

Pros

  • Helio is middle price range.
  • It’s Awesome than snapdragon when you buy under 15 to 20 thousand price range mobile

Cons

  • It’s not for heavy gameplay in front of snapdragon
  • It’s not for a good Battary backup in front of snapdragon
  • It’s fabrication size is larger than other processors

General info

1.Supports 64-bit
MediaTek Helio G88
Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 4G
A 32-bit operating system can only support up to 4GB of RAM. 64-bit allows more than 4GB, giving increased performance. It also allows you to run 64-bit apps.
2.Has integrated graphics
MediaTek Helio G88
Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 4G
With integrated graphics you don’t need to buy a separate graphics card.
Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.
4.GPU clock speed

850MHz

845MHz

The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.
DirectX is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
6.has 5G support
MediaTek Helio G88
Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 4G
The fifth-generation wireless technology delivers higher speeds and lower latency than the previous, fourth-generation tech.
7.GPU turbo

1000MHz

800MHz

When the GPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.
OpenGL ES is used for games on mobile devices such as smartphones. Newer versions support better graphics.
Some apps use OpenCL to apply the power of the graphics processing unit (GPU) for non-graphical computing. Newer versions introduce more functionality and better performance.

Performance

1.CPU speed

2 x 2GHz & 6 x 1.8GHz

2 x 2.4GHz & 6 x 1.8GHz

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
More threads result in faster performance and better multitasking.
3.Uses big.LITTLE technology
MediaTek Helio G88
Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 4G
Using big.LITTLE technology, a chip can switch between two sets of processor cores to maximize performance and battery life. For example, when playing a game the more powerful cores will be used to increase performance, whereas checking email will use the less powerful cores to maximize battery life.
4.Uses HMP
MediaTek Helio G88
Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 4G
Heterogeneous Multi-Processing (HMP) is a more advanced version of big.LITTLE technology. In this setup, a processor can utilize all cores at the same time, or just a single core for low-intensity tasks. This can provide powerful performance or increased battery life respectively.
