Top Best Processors For Smartphones 2014

Leave a Comment
Processors, What are they ? A question which most of the Smartphones owners can't answer so easily. Processor or the virtual brain is the core processing and functional component of every smartphone. They are the first preference to look upon before buying a smartPhone.Have you ever tried to know what they are and what they do.If your Answer is no then here is a complete guide for you to be get updated.

Firstly what they literally are according to Google processor is something which processes something . nah that's not enough lets go in deep and explore. A Processor is the Logic Circuitry that responds to and processes the basic instructions that drive a computer or Smart Phone. Its basic job is to receive INPUT and provide the appropriate OUTPUT. This may seems to be a simple task but modern processors can handle trillions of calculations per second.
Modern processors have multiple cores. Cores are contained in one physical unit but work like individual processors. Processors that have 2 cores are Dual-core processors while those with 4 and 8 are quad -core and octa- core respectively.
Beside these main Processors there are also Graphic processors which help in rendering graphics. will discuss more about different GPU's more in next post.
Some of the performers in this section are :-
  • Qualcomm
  • Samsung
  • Nvidia
  • intel
Firstly the players :-

Qualcomm still dominates mobile processors. they are actually intel of Smart Phones.Snapdragon 800 and 600 were the featured in mostly of high end and mid end phones in 2013.

Snapdragon 600: features in both mid and high end phones and tabs.These are Quad core can run at clock speed up to 1.9GHz and is equppied with an Adreno 320 GPU.It is more or less a turbo boosted snapdragon S4 processor of samsung galaxy SIII.

Further info:

Snapdragon 800:These are among the most advanced processors till now. they made their debut in later half of 2013.It can support Ultra HD (4K) resolution video recording and streaming to ultra HD external displays, cameras upto 55 MP and clock speeed of 2.3 has also a global 3g/4g suppport.
and the best thing which makes it amazing is its Adreno 330 GPU.Qualcomm claims it is 75% faster than snapdragon S4.

There are many mid and low range processors available these are the big ones .

For Detailed Comparison between Snapdragon 800,600,400,200 processors series check this out:

Some Snapdragon 600 powered Smart Phones:

  • LG G Pad 8.3
Some Snapdragon 800 powered Smart Phones:
  • LG G Pro 2
  • NOKIA Lumia Icon
  • LG G Flex
  • GOOGLE Nexus 5

Tegra 4
The Tegra 4 has been described as  the world's fastest mobile processor.Nvidia used the modified super advanced ARM cortex A15 to produce clock speed upto 1.9 GHz.It is capable of supporting Ultra HD (4K) video through HDMI port,4 GB RAM and screen resolution upto 3200 x 2000 pixels.

Tegra 4i
Tegra 4i is based on ARM cortex A9 architecture.offers specs such as 2 GB RAM , 1080p resolution and a 2.3 GHz maximum speed.It has Nvidia's new i500 4G LTE modem built-in.

Tegra 4 featuring Smart Phones:
  • Xioami Mi3
  • Hp Slate 8 pro 
  • Hp Slate 7 Extreme
  • Toshiba Excite Pro


Atom Series
These are Dual core and Quad core chips and can run at 2.0 GHz
It has enhanced PowerVR graphics.
 Its is not featured in many phones . yet some of the companies which feature are Zolo, Motorola and ZTE.


Exynos 5 octa
Exynos 5 octa core made its debut with Samsung Galaxy S4 in some markets.It is not really a octa core processor but these are 2 Quad core chips linked together via ARM's Big Little Concept to work like octa core chips.It Works on Simple Principle that when there is not much demand of processor than everything is handeled by 1.2 GHz quad-core chip but when things become stressful the big one comes onto action ,1.8 GHz quad core chip based on same ARM cortex A15 architecture as Tegra 4.It results in better energy consumption when doing basic tasks.
Earlier it was able to use only 4 cores at a time but its updated version is able to use all 8 at a time.
It came in market with Samsung Galaxy S4 and Note3.


A7 M7

Apple introduced them with iPhone 5s,the A7 is the world's first processor with 64-bit support.Apple claims it is twice fast as compared to Apple A6.The new ios 7 is designed to make the best of it.It has a unique architecture and twice fast GPU over its predecessor.Gaming becomes even better.
Samsung manufactures the apple chips.It is 1.3 GHz dual-core chip .
The M7 is the Motion co processor with A7.It has a 3 axis accelerometer,3 axis electronic compass sounds amazing .Its manufactured by NXP and run by a Cortex M3 microcontroller.It contantly takes the reading of motion with takes it one step forward in apps.

It is all about the Big guys of this industry .Though there are many but these are main ones.
