The Dimensity 800 from Mediatek has performed very well and is ahead of the SD chipset in almost every aspect

I feel like Mediatek are there now and they are really starting to rival Snapdragon right now. They have powerful processors and great specs. If they keep it up they could be the more popular choice and seeing by the vote above it seems Mediatek are making a mark.

Mediatek in getting great and great, but of they want the spotlights, they have to do a processor that put the world talking, to put the eyes of the world looking to them.

No much difference. But I still go with sd 765 for better 4G better gaming, better resolution and camera. And these are what's makes a phone. But if I am a lover of space, I would go for dimensity . The MediaTek is great though but the list I made for making the Snapdragon a winner even not too much of a dea, can make a whole lots of difference.
