The craze of mobile gaming is going on day-by-day. The largest contributor to this is the PUBG mobile. Now before buying a smartphone, users check its battery and processor and after that, they check its other things. There are many dedicated gaming smartphones available in the market. But users who can’t afford those smartphones, want stronger specs in their mid-range smartphones.
Considering this, MediaTek has entered in mobile gaming market by launching its Helio G90 gaming series. Under this series, it has launched two chipsets also – Helio G90 and Helio G90T. Both are gaming processors and perform very well in terms of gaming and other tasks. The Helio G90T has better camera support and better GPU clock speed, while the remaining features are the same in both chipsets. The Helio G90 series will give competition to mid-range and upper-mid-range chipsets along with old flagship chipsets. It is specially launched to compete with Snapdragon 700 series.
We have compared these chipsets with many chipsets in past posts, where in some cases these chipsets perform better while in some cases their competitors perform better. Here we are to compare MediaTek Helio G90T vs Snapdragon 835 chipset – a flagship chipset of time and find the difference between Helio G90T and Snapdragon 835. If you also want to know which one is better chipset between Helio G90T and Snapdragon 835, read this comparison. Here we will try to clear your all doubts regarding this topic.
Helio G90T vs Snapdragon 835 CPU & GPU
