Final verdict of Snapdragon vs MediaTek

Well at the end I would like to say that each processor has its own plus points. So if you are going for a Smartphone under Rs. 15k then MediaTek processors offers excellent value money, and if you are getting a smartphone in price range higher than 15k then Snapdragon processors are the ones to choose as they offer excellent performance and features. But now MediaTek has also started manufacturing high-end processors like MT6752, MT6595 which offers similar or sometimes better performance than equivalent Snapdragon counterparts. So they are giving a tough competition to the Snapdragon processors.

      If you are looking for RAW performance with Zero lag, then Redmi 4 Note should be your choice.If, the camera is a priority then stay away from Redmi Note 4.Then go with Lenovo K5 Note.
