Best Mobile Processor Ranking List 2021

Are you looking for the rankings of mobile processors? Or do you want to make sure that your next smartphone has the best processor?

Then, you’ve arrived at the right place.

A smartphone’s processor is unarguably one of the most important components. The performance of the processor directly impacts the phone’s speed, gaming performance, user experience, and battery efficiency.

A mobile phone with a fast processor will open all your favorite apps in a blink of an eye and your task will be done in no time. But a phone with a weaker processor will result in a bad user experience and may cause issues such as overheating, lag, and poor battery life (despite it having a higher battery capacity).

It also plays a huge role in gaming performance as the GPU is also integrated into the chip itself. This is why the proper term for a mobile chip is SOC (System-on-chip).

At Tech Centurion, we have developed Centurion Mark which is one of the industry-leading benchmarking techniques to evaluate the performance of a processor. Centurion Mark evaluates the CPU performance, Gaming Performance, and battery efficiency of a chip based on real-world usage and we combine all that data to assign a score to every SOC.

We also have a separate article for gaming performance which you can check out here: Mobile GPU Rankings.

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 December 2020, the best mobile processor is Apple A14 Bionic which powers iPhone 12 Lineup. The second best processor is Snapdragon 888 followed by Samsung Exynos 2100, A13 Bionic, and Kirin 9000.

Next up, we have Exynos 1080, Kirin 9000E, Snapdragon 870/865+, and MediaTek Dimensity 1200 and 1100. The Apple A12 Bionic is the 14th best SOC and it is slightly better than Snapdragon 855+.

*The performance of processors marked with a star is estimated based on their specification, leaked benchmarks, speculation, and the data 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 125

The processors that scored above 125 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 100-125

High performance is General use as well as gaming. If you’re buying a mid-range phone, then you should pick a phone whose chipset falls in this range.

Between 70-100

In this range, performance is above average. But you’re unlikely to observe any lagging or other 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 55-70

The general performance of these chips is below average. But it is still 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 low-end phone whose price is below $100.

    Snapdragon 888 vs A14 Bionic vs Kirin 9000 vs Exynos 2100 vs Dimensity 1200

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 A14 Bionic
  2. Exynos 2100
  3. Snapdragon 888
  4. Dimensity 1200
  5. Kirin 9000

In both Single-Threaded and Multi-Threaded CPU performance, the A14 Bionic is far ahead of the rest of the chips. Following the A14 Bionic, we have the Exynos 2100 and Snapdragon 888 that feature the powerful Cortex-X1 derived CPU Core.

Next up, we have Dimensity 1200 that has a Cortex-A78 CPU and Kirin 9000 is at last with its Cortex-A77 CPU.

GPU Performance
  1. Apple A14 Bionic
  2. Snapdragon 888
  3. Kirin 9000
  4. Exynos 2100
  5. Dimensity 1200

Apple’s A14 Bionic continues to dominate the GPU performance while Snapdragon 888 is not too far away. Next comes the Kirin 9000 and Exynos 2100 with their Mali-G78 based GPU. At last, we have the Dimensity 1200 which features a Mali-G77 based GPU.

Fabrication Node
  1. Apple A14 Bionic & Kirin 9000
  2. Snapdragon 888 & Exynos 2100
  3. Dimensity 1200

A14 Bionic and Kirin 9000 are fabricated using TSMC’s 5nm process (N5) which is superior to the rest. Exynos 2100 and Snapdragon 888 use Samsung’s 5nm LPE process which comes next. At last, we have the MediaTek’s 1200 chip that is manufactured using TSMC’s 6nm (N6) which is a derivation of their 7nm and is not a full node shrink. TSMC’s 5nm Process has a higher transistor density & power efficiency when compared to the rest as you can see in this article.

AI Performance
  1. Kirin 9000
  2. Apple A14 Bionic
  3. Exynos 2100
  4. Dimensity 1200
  5. Snapdragon 888

In AI-related computation, Kirin 9000 is at the top followed by A14 Bionic and Exynos 2100. The Dimensity 1200 and Snapdragon 888 are not too far away either.

Modem
  1. Snapdragon 888
  2. Kirin 9000
  3. Exynos 2100
  4. Dimensity 1200
  5. Apple A14 Bionic

The above rankings depend on Networking Technologies, Internet Speeds, and Features. All the 5 chipsets support 5G.

User Experience
  1. Apple A14 Bionic
  2. Snapdragon 888
  3. Exynos 2100, Kirin 9000, Dimensity 1200

We rate user experience by evaluating the performance in day-to-day usage. All the five 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 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, Battery Efficiency, 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 chips seems unbelievably good, the performance difference in the real-world is not too 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. 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!

    Reply
    • 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.

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

    Reply
    • 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.

  3. 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.

    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.

  4. 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.

    Reply
    • 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.

      Reply
      • 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.

  5. 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.

    Reply
    • 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.

  6. 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.

    • 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.

  8. Which will be better??
    G90T – redmi note 8 pro
    Or
    SD 712 – Realme XT pro
    Or
    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.

  9. Is the Realme X50 5G running on Snapdragon 765G have the same centurion marking with the Oppo Reno 3 Vitality here marked 134*?

    • 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.
