Best Mobile Processor Ranking List 2020

The processor or the SOC is unarguably one of the most critical components of a mobile phone. The performance of the processor directly correlates with the phone’s speed and user experience.

A smartphone with a fast processor will open all your favorite apps in a blink of an eye, and your tasks will be done in no time. But a phone with a weak processor will result in bad user experience and may cause issues such as overheating and lagging. The SOC also becomes the major of the phone if you’re into mobile gaming.

To test and rank processors, Tech Centurion has developed Centurion Mark which evaluates the performance of a processor.

Centurion Mark is a lot more than just raw benchmark. We also take the real-world performance into account while ranking the SOCs.

Centurion Mark not only considers the raw benchmarks but also takes real-world performance into account. This not only makes it highly accurate, but it makes it easy for consumers to understand a phone’s performance without going much into technical details.

As of March 2020, the best mobile processor is Apple A13 Bionic which powers the iPhone 11 Lineup. Among Android devices, the Snapdragon 865 is currently the best processor followed by Exynos 990, MediaTek Dimensity 1000, Snapdragon 855+, and Kirin 990. The Apple A12 Bionic is the 5th best SOC and it is slightly better than Snapdragon 855+.

*The performance of processors marked with a star is estimated based on their specification, and the knowledge gained during the testing of previous-gen processors. These scores may change once we have tested phones based on these SOCs.

How to make use of this data?

Processors having the same or a close score can be considered as equivalent or similar in performance. This data can help you to determine which processor from a particular brand (Qualcomm Snapdragon, Samsung Exynos, Huawei HiSilicon, MediaTek, and Apple) is equivalent or comparable to the other.

Above 120

The processors that scored above 110 in Centurion Mark deliver excellent performance in Gaming as well as Heavy usage. Selecting a phone with a processor from this category is highly recommended for the best user experience.

Between 90-120

High performance is General use as well as gaming. If you’re buying a mid-range phone, then you should target this range.

Between 65-90

In this range, performance is just average. But you’re unlikely to observe any lags or any other significant issues. But some older chips like Snapdragon 810 having poor thermal performance might also fall into this category. If you have a low budget, try to get a phone that fits in this category.

Between 55-65

The general performance of these chips is below average, but it is acceptable in the lower end phones. These can suffer from occasional lags as well as throttling issues.

Below 55

The performance of these chips is below par, and you should avoid them unless you’re buying an extremely cheap phone with a budget lower than $100.

    Snapdragon 865 vs A13 Bionic vs Kirin 990 vs Exynos 990

I understand that a single-digit score doesn’t tell the whole story. Therefore, here’s a detailed ranking of the current generation flagship SOCs in different aspects.

CPU Performance
  1. Apple A13 Bionic
  2. Snapdragon 865
  3. Exynos 990
  4. Kirin 990

In Single-Threaded CPU performance, A13 Bionic is far ahead of the rest of the chips. But in the Multi-Core test, the performance of all the four CPUs is quite similar.

GPU Performance
  1. Apple A13 Bionic
  2. Snapdragon 865
  3. Exynos 990
  4. Kirin 990

Apple’s A13 Bionic continues to dominate the GPU performance while Snapdragon 865 is also very close. Next comes the Exynos 990 while Kirin 990 is at the last. You can get more details on your GPU Ranking page.

AI Performance
  1. Kirin 990
  2. Snapdragon 865
  3. Apple A13 Bionic
  4. Exynos 990

In AI-related computation, Kirin 990 takes the crown followed by Snapdragon 865.

Fabrication Node
  1. Kirin 990 
  2. Exynos 990
  3. Snapdragon 865 & Apple A13 Bionic

Kirin 990 5G variant is fabricated using TSMC’s 7nm+ EUV process which is superior than the rest. Exynos 990 uses Samsung’s 7nm EUV process while Snapdragon 865 & A13 Bionic are fabricated using TSMC’s 7nm (N7P) Process. TSMC’s 7nm+ (N7+) Process has higher transistor density & power efficiency when compared to the rest as you can see in this article.

  1. Snapdragon 865 & Kirin 990
  2. Exynos 990
  3. Apple A13 Bionic

The above rankings depend on Networking Technologies, Internet Speeds, and Features. Apple A13 Bionic is the only chip here that does not support 5G.

User Experience
  1. Apple A13 Bionic
  2. Snapdragon 865
  3. Exynos 990
  4. Kirin 990

We rate user experience by evaluating the performance in day-to-day usage. All the four SOCs are pretty close in this segment.

    Centurion Mark and its Significance

We not only test the raw performance but also check whether it is as good as per its specification. When a processor suffers from throttling/overheating on extended usage or lags frequently during general use or gaming, we deduct its score. But when a processor performs better than expected, we make sure to give it higher points.

Adding the User Experience section is essential to remove the high dependency on the raw performance scores. The scores are unbiased, and we do not favor any particular brand or processor. We also do not accept sponsored reviews by a smartphone or semiconductor manufacturer.

Centurion Mark

By giving almost the equal weight to the Real-World Performance as the Raw score, Centurion Mark is one of the most accurate ways to judge the performance of a SOC. Here are some of the significant factors that influence the Centurion Mark.

Parameters that Influence Centurion Mark

There are more than 20 parameters on which we judge a processor’s performance. But the most significant ones are:

  • User Experience
  • Real-World Performance (Gaming, Social Media, Browsing, and general phone usage)
  • Raw CPU Performance
  • Raw GPU Performance
  • Features and Technologies

Things to Note

Processors made by Apple run on a completely different OS and Apple doesn’t reveal the full specification. There is no real way to determine whether an Apple Processor will perform the same when running another OS such as Android. There’s also a difference in APIs, Kernal, and Programming Language. Even though the raw performance of an Apple’s chip seems unbelievably good, the performance difference in the real-world is not significant. Lastly, the sustained performance of Apple chips isn’t as good as Qualcomm chips.

That’s why the Centurion Mark of Apple Processors is determined in a slightly different way and there’s a possibility of an error between 0 to 5%. But still, it is worth noting that Apple Processors are top-notch and the A13 Bionic is the best mobile processor as of now.

Because we determine Centurion Mark based on over 20 different parameters, one SOC with a better CPU but a weaker GPU can have the same Centurion Mark as another SOC with a weaker CPU but a better GPU. Thus, make sure to look at our GPU Benchmarks to find out which SOC has a better Graphics Processor. You are also free to ask any questions in the comment section or message us on our social media pages.

Custom UIs or skins may also affect the user experience of a device. UIs such as Samsung Experience, MIUI, and EMUI may improve or degrade the experience when compared to Stock Android. We do not take this factor into consideration. You can always flash a Custom ROM to improve the experience.

These scores may change whenever we change our algorithm and benchmarking process.

    Final Words

I hope this list helps anyone looking to purchase a new smartphone. I’ll constantly be updating the list of best mobile processors as new devices launch. If you have questions on why a particular SOC is better, feel free to ask in the comments. I’ll get back to you as early as possible.

How much priority should you give to Centurion Mark?

Centurion Mark covers three significant aspects of a phone: General Performance, User Experience, and Gaming. A general consumer should give a high priority to Centurion Mark, followed by the factor that matters the most to you (Camera/Battery/Features/Design/UI).

An in-depth review of a particular smartphone will always give a better idea than just benchmarks. So, you shouldn’t only consider the Centurion Mark to judge a phone. It’s not always about choosing a phone with the best mobile processor, but the one that fulfills all your requirements.

  1. Nice info, sir. Well laid-out, excellent comparison chart and suggestions. I really appreciate it, as I think buying a midrange cpu like the A8star, with the Snapdragon 660 is all I am going to need, given that I so not game. I just want smooth performance, video play, and no lag after a year or two. I can get the A8star in Korea for almost free, with credit card agreement. The only negative is A8star has just 4gb of ram in Korea. Maybe I don’t need to spend for a top-tier phone, anymore. Your info has helped me see that.. Take care!

    • On the basis of the performance improvement over SD710 (100 MHz CPU Clock Speed boost and some other minor changes), we have estimated its score to be 114. Once, we test an SD712 smartphone, we will revise its score. It could even reach 115 if the performance improvement is higher than what we are expecting right now.

      • you can say that again
        but I heard SD712 GPU will up to 550mhz(SD710 was 500 mhz)
        if that is true. i think SD712 should be 115 point
        but if SD712 just CPU 2.2Ghz to 2.3Ghz
        and QC4 to QC4+
        than i think SD712 still be 114 point

        i think this ranking is 99% correct

        thank you

    • CPU Performance of Snapdragon 710 & Helio P90 could be similar due to the same Cortex-A75 Architecture underneath and having the same clock speeds. But Snapdragon 710 will gain an edge in extended performance and power efficiency due to 10nm Fabrication Process. The TSMC’s 12nm Node on which Helio P90 is fabricated is nowhere near to that of Samsung’s 10nm Node. You can read more about it here.
      It’s good to speculate but there are over 20 different parameters on which Centurion Mark is calculated. Some of those factors are calculated automatically by our algorithm and some are calculated manually. Sometimes good specification doesn’t translate into good real-world performance and some times it even exceeds our expectations.

      • compare the score for iphone SE with apple a9 with snapdragon 835 as iphone SE has a very low resolution display so what will be the score for cpu or gpu in IPHONE se plz reply sir

        • Snapdragon 835 will still have an edge over Apple’s A9 chip in overall performance. In Gaming and other GPU intensive tasks, the performance of both will be quite similar.

  2. Here is my questions (about snapdragon 845) =
    İs snapdragon 845 good for gaming?
    which popular game lag on snapdragon 845?
    is snapdragon 845 be high-end processor soon?
    Thank you!

    • Snapdragon 845 is one of the best SOC for Android devices in terms of gaming. The only better SOC is Snapdragon 855.
      Almost every major game can be played on Snapdragon 845 without lags. But one exception would be Fortnite but it has more to do with some optimization issues rather than the capabilities of the phone itself.
      Buying an SD845 based device for Gaming on your phone would be a great decision!

  3. Hi it’s me again! i have an few question about new processor
    Snapdragon 735 is coming soon if it came out will you update the list?
    And will it pass snapdragon 845?

  4. Excellent article! Keep up the great work!
    I have one question though
    # Centurion Mark and its Significance
    When a processor suffers from throttling/overheating on extended usage or lags frequently during general use or gaming, we deduct its score.
    – That sounds fair if all SoCs are tested under the same hood. But mobile design / environment might affect the device overall heating – are those considering during testing?

    • Yes, mobile design can definitely affect heating. We only deduct scores only when a SOC shows signs of overheating in multiple phones. You can consider the Snapdragon 810 as an example. Almost every single SD810 device suffered from the same issue and that is why it is far below its expected score.
      Such issues were more common a couple of years back but now thanks to the 14nm/10nm/7nm FinFET Nodes, most of the new SOCs don’t suffer from overheating.

    • Samsung has provided no information on the Exynos 7884 SOC and I don’t have the Samsung Galaxy A20 either. By going through some of the online benchmarks, it seems that Snapdragon 632 has a slight edge over the Exynos 7884.

      • Sir, im going to get a new smartphone, can you give me an advice : – should i buy Galaxy S10 Plus 12Gb Ram 1TB Rom Exynos chip version or Iphone 8Plus256gb ? (i love Snapdragon855 but live in Vietnam i cannot get it, and i use for work and Pubg mobile).
        – Or i should wait and try to get 855SD chip version later? Cuz i hear about galaxys10plus Exynos chip are really really bad on gaming and Pubgmobile (i saw many reviews in Youtube told its bad. And – According to you sir, is it bad for gaming and worse vs SD855 version?). Thanks for reading my confuse bad English

        • The Exynos variant isn’t actually bad for gaming but if compared to the Snapdragon 855, its GPU is not that great. You can check in our GPU rankings that Adreno 640 is superior to Mali-G76 MP12. Both the iPhone 8 Plus and S10 Plus (SD855 Variant) will be an excellent choice for gaming but I’ll prefer S10 Plus because of the better display.
          Have you checked out the OnePlus 7 Pro? It is also a great device for gaming.

      • Taiwan has galaxy A20

        exynos 7884
        CPU 2*1.6+6*1.35
        GPU mail G51

        on CPU exynos 7884 draw with P22
        but GPU could kick out P22

  5. Hi sir, may I know why kirin 970 is ranked better than exynos 8895. Is it because of the neural processing unit?

    Huawei has launched kirin 810. Could you rank it in the list? Pls reply. Thanks!

    • The raw CPU performance of both the SOCs is comparable but Kirin 970 has a better GPU, Neural Processing Unit, Quad-Channel Memory Support, Dual VoLTE support, and some other features.
      Yes, I’ll soon be updating the list with Kirin 810 and other new SOCs.

  6. If the same SOC perform different scores on different OEM product, How do you evaluate the final score and products?

    • In most of the cases, the performance of SOCs on different OEM products is quite similar so we simply take the average of all the scores. We have plans to make a ranking system of smartphones in the future as sometimes OEMs use underclocked SOCs and some phones don’t perform as well as they are expected to.

  7. Why do Snapdragon 730 and 730g is better than kirin 810, kirin 970 in centurian marking ?
    I also want to know which one (from given above) has better GPU performance ? The GPU marking is not updated yet. Please Reply.

    • Snapdragon 730 & 730G use Kryo 470 Cores which are based on ARM’s Cortex-A76 Cores which are superior to Cortex-A73 cores in Kirin 970. SD730 & 730G have better power efficiency due to Samsung’s 8nm Node compared to TSMC’s 10nm Node in Kirin 970.
      Kirin 810 is on par (and slightly better in some scenarios) with Snapdragon 730 on both CPU & GPU performance and it is better in power efficiency. It seems like we have made an error during calculating its score and we will be updating the results soon.

  8. Why is helio a22 so much ahead of sd425 ? Is it because of GPU and fabrication. I use redmi 6a and it has heating issues while gaming and video playing in high quality for few hours. Plus general day to day performance of sd425 in redmi 5a seems better than 6a even with same UI and same configuration.
    Can you explain why it happens even if mediatek claims its cpu performance is 30% more.

    • I haven’t tested the Redmi 6A but I’ve heard that it is not as smooth as the Redmi 5A. Software level Optimization could be a factor in that as some other Helio A22 devices have a decent performance. Firstly, Snapdragon 425 is based on an older 28nm Fabrication Process which makes it less efficient. Both the chips have 4 Cortex-A53 cores but in A22, they’re clocked at 2 GHz compared to 1.4 GHz of Snapdragon 425. Because the IPC of the chips is similar (due to same Cortex-A53 design), the 35% increase in clock speed will result in similar performance increase. That is why MediaTek is claiming the performance to be 30% or more but in real-world, the difference won’t be as noticeable as using a different CPU Core like Cortex-A73.
      Heating issues could arise due to various different reasons. Two of the most prominent factors will be the higher clock speeds and poor heat dissipation.
      In our tests, Helio A22 was ahead of Snapdragon 425 in almost every test including the CPU & GPU Performance and that is why it is placed much higher.

      • Could you please let me know which phones have been taken into consideration for centurion mark calculation. As most of the helio a22 phones are in sub 10000 segment and Nokia 2.2 3gb variant with Android one to offers very poor performance.
        So i don’t think it could be software side since Google made stock Android to offer simplicity and speed to users so it is probably the optimised ui any hardware can work with.
        If even in such case it underperforms then it’s hardware fault.

  9. Hi !
    Also i wanted to know why sd 439 and 450 have same points when Qualcomm promises 20-25% increase in performance due to higher clocking speed in 429 and 439 against 425 and 450 respectively.( If 429 is 16 marks ahead of 425)
    Thanks in advance
    And i greatly appreciate your sincere hard-work in helping us consumers.

    • Snapdragon 439 and 450 have a very similar specification. While Snapdragon 439 is slightly ahead due to higher clock speeds (1.95 GHz vs 1.8 GHz), it is slightly weaker in GPU Performance (Adreno 505 vs 506). Snapdragon 450 also has a slightly better Modem & DSP but is it lacks some features like the latest Bluetooth 5.0 support. SD 450 is fabricated using Samsung’s 14nm Process while SD 439 using TSMC’s 12nm Process and both these nodes are comparable. You can check more about it on my article here.
      When we combine all these factors alongside many other tests, our score comes out to be the same.

      Snapdragon 429 is ahead of 425 due to various factors like the massive increase in clock speed (1.95 GHz vs 1.4 GHz), better GPU (Adreno 504 vs 308), fabrication node (12nm FinFET vs 28nm LP), and support for Quick Charge 3.0 Bluetooth 5.

  10. I saw speed test of 5a vs 6a in which they compare app and game opening speeds and ram management (of ui) to check which phone performs better in day to day usage . In which both had miui so the software factor cancels out and both were 2gb ram variants
    So this factor also cancels out. But the speed test clearly showed 425 as the winner and in not just one but probably all the cases.
    And since miui has very poor ram management just more than 4 lite apps and it reloads them and with its sluggish speed it is quite irritating. So this app opening speed and time difference becomes quite crucial in this case.
    Also my father has vivo y53 so i myself have witnessed the performance difference especially when switching between resource hungry apps such as Chrome.

      • Are you talking about the ones that do speed tests on the phone by opening the apps?
        If that’s the case, then sure, go ahead. But such tests give a better idea about the smoothness of the device rather than the processing power of the CPU. A fast Storage (such as UFS 3.0) will load data to RAM quicker and will result in a faster opening of apps. There are also other factors such as Animations that impact these tests and hence the results may vary with devices having different UIs.

  11. Hello is mi9 good phone for gaming? Someone said mi9 is overheating even when not playing game is that true if is it was it can able to solved by update?

    • Yes, Mi 9 should deliver excellent gaming performance as per its specifications. I haven’t used that device myself so I cannot comment about the heating issues. Did you read or watch any reviews? Someone who has reviewed this device would be able to answer your query better.

  12. Which will be better??
    G90T – redmi note 8 pro
    SD 712 – Realme XT pro
    SD 730G – realme XT 730G
    In terms of best result in camera, battery backup, connectivity, display & just moderate gaming?

    • Snapdragon 730G is easily the better choice among the three. With G90T you get better raw performance but at the cost of power efficiency (Because of Samsung’s 8nm Process in 730G vs TSMC’s 12nm Process in G90T). Hence, the battery backup will be lower for G90T.
      Here, I’m only talking about the SOCs. I’ll recommend watching individual reviews of all the smartphones that you’ve mentioned.

      • Thanks! This was the particular question-answer I was looking for. I have looked around a lot, and there seems to be no mention of the non-gaming user who still uses quite a few apps, including office suite, and also would like to do a bit of audio and video processing on the go. Would your answer stand for a user like me, too? And would 4gb of ram do, or will 6gb make a big difference? Once again, thanks!

        • If you’re into audio & video processing, a faster chip will definitely make a difference. For high-end phones, I’ll recommend the current-gen flagship chips (SD 865/A13 Bionic/Kirin 990/Exynos 990). In mid-range, the Snapdragon 700 will be an excellent choice, especially the Snapdragon 730/730G & 765/765G.
          While the difference between 4GB vs 6GB isn’t that big of a deal for an average user, but for heavy multitasking and processing, 6GB RAM will be the better choice.

    • So far, we have only estimated the score of Snapdragon 765G as we are yet to test a device with this chip. But yes, the score will be the same for both the devices.

  13. hi again and thanks so much for updating the informations and including exynos 7884
    can you please tell me how many cores adreno graphics have?
    i wish to know about 505 and 506
    mali graphics its easy to learn from the number after mp for example mp2 or mp3.
    but in adreno, its very difficult to understand, or at least i dont know!
    thanks so much again and God bless you for your great article!

    • Unfortunately, Qualcomm doesn’t provide any info on the core count of Adreno GPUs. The only way to understand the performance difference is by comparing them in Gaming & 3D Applications. This is why we have Mobile GPU rankings to help out the consumers.
      We can also get the number of cores with the help of die shots like this one which shows Snapdragon 845’s Adreno 630 having two Shader Cores. While the Snapdragon 835 had 4 Shader Cores instead. However, only the die shots of a few major flagship mobile chips are available on the Internet.
      Remember, the core count is not always a reliable indicator of performance due to the difference in the architectures. The 18-core Mali G72MP18 GPU of Exynos 9810 is 130% larger than the Dual-Core Adreno 630 of Snapdragon 845 and still ends up getting crushed in performance.

  14. which brand is best smart phone price between 10k to 15k…?B coz most of the people like me are middle class background.

  15. about adreno 505 and 506, can you please tell me how many cores do they have?
    is there any information to know that?

    • Unfortunately, the die shots of SOCs using these GPUs aren’t available on the Internet. The only way to get that info is by taking the die shot yourself or by requesting it from someone who is experienced in this field like Fritzchens Fritz.

      • thanks very much for your help.
        if i buy a phone which has cpu with four cores, is it enough for me?
        can i use it without any hangs, crashes, and unresponsiveness?
        i read somewhere that 8 cores is sutable for people who wants to play games with there mobile or, want 4k videos.
        but for myself, i even dont want to use social medias like facebook, instagram, telegram, youtube etc.
        i dont need photo, video, game, etc.

  16. Aren’t the sd 636 and kirin 710 more powerful than exynos 7885 (better gpu and 4cortex a73 while exynos has only 2)?
    Why exynos 9611 and exynos 9610 have different score when they are the exact same except that 9611 has support for 48m camera?
    Helio g70 is a rebranded helio p65 they should get the same score.
    Kirin 810 is more powerful than sd730g. It’s on par with sd765g while g90t should have the same score as sd730g.
    Mediatek dimensity 1000l should be on par with kirin 990 if not even weaker
