SoC (System on a chip) is the vital part of a Smartphone that hosts the core components of the phone in it. It mainly houses CPU, GPU, Memory and some other hardware such as 3G and 4G-related things. There is only a numbered SoC manufactures out there including Qualcomm, MediaTek, Samsung, Intel and Huawei. Qualcomm seems to be the biggest player in this domain leveraging the largest number of Smartphones with its snapdragon SoC. MediaTek is also expanding its wing rapidly getting a grip on the budget segment of Smartphone market. Every two of three budget Android phones feature a MediaTek SoC.

In 2015, MediaTek launched its affordable yet very powerful SoC, Helio X10. In benchmarking results Helio X10 appeared very close to Snapdragon 810, the most powerful to the date SoC from Qualcomm. However, it is quite different that Helio X10 is comparatively very affordable and it powers many cheap but high-end devices. You can buy a Helio X10 powered phone as an alternative to an expensive Snapdragon 810 powered phone.

In this post we have covered all budget Android Smartphones that are beefed up with MediaTek 6795 Helio X10.

 

Meizu MX5 (OnePlus 2 alternative)

Meizu MX5

Meizu Mx5 is a perfect Android Smartphone to be bought under $280/Rs18000. MX5 comes with a gorgeous and sleek design pretty similar to MX4 Pro. The company has worked hard to make its design even better, making it thinner and more ergonomic from ever before. To your pleasure, MX5 comes with fully metallic body that makes the phone sturdy and gives it premium looks. But one thing that is really disappointing is that Meizu has stolen the design concept from iPhone 6. It could have been better if they made a design in their own way. Anyway, MX5 is a great-looking  phone driven by 2.2 GHz octacore CPU, PowerVR G6200 GPU and 3GB of RAM. It is available in three different internal memory variants; 16/32/64GB with different price tags. Sadly, there is no expandable memory slot.

Coming to cameras, it sports a powerful 20.7MP rear camera featuring laser auto focus and f/2.2 aperture size. On the other hand, it bears a 5MP front camera that also seems promising having a large aperture. The device contains a 3150 mAh battery.
