I think helio p35 can be used, but compared to Snapdragon 460. It's still far behind in terms of performance, but this is an old chip so don't expect too much from it.

Yeah i don't like P35 like vivo and oppo is even overpriced my vivo y20i is lagging like hell and vivo 2021 is worse

Why is it that the Snapdragon 460 perform better than the Helio P35 when the Mediatek one has a higher CPU speed??? This is really mind boggling!!! If the Qualcomm uses some kind of special software, will the Mediatek chip perform better running it??? Or is that the infrastructure of the chips are different and they use different processing methods??? But still, it is very unbelievable that a CPUspeed of 1.8ghz can outperform the CPU speed of 2.3ghz!!! Can you please Enlighten???

It is because it is not the CPU that will define the performance, but the GPU. The Snapdragon 460 his GPU is the Adreno 610 and the Helio P35 is the PowerVR GE8320. The Adreno 610 has a much better performance than the PowerVR GE8320. So the Snapdragon 460 is better than the Helio P35

The Snapdragon 460 has a new and better ARM architecture which is Kryo-240 Gold and Kryo-240 Silver which is based on Cortex a-73 and Cortex a-53 while Helio P35 has an eight cortex-a53 cores which is significantly slower than Snapdragon 460. Sometimes, clock speed doesn't matter in performance of a CPU. We have many factors to determine the performance of a CPU. Hope it helps.

Snapdragon 460 has 4 big cores A73. And the Helio P35 has only A53 cores.

'Vivo-Y20' launched with "Snapdragon-460" in 2020, and in 2021 VIVO launched a model with exactly same name 'Vivo-Y20' with a worse chipset "Helio-P35" in same price without properly specifying on a box or anywhere else. I purchased 'Vivo-Y20' knowing that it comes with "Snapdragon-460" and guess what..., I get "Helio-P35" instead. VIVO is fraud, a total fraud. I'm hurt and disappointed :-( will never buy any vivo gadget again.
