Battle Of The 10-Cores: Which Chinese Helio X25-based Smartphone To Get

By on

Big brands like Samsung, Apple, HTC, and LG might be using quad-cores or octa-cores on their new smartphone models but some Chinese companies thought more. Instead of having the run-of-the-mill 8-core processors, they went ahead and used 10-core Helio X25 processors. But with so many of them out there, how do you choose the best?

TheBitBag has come up with a comparison of four of the best 10-core smartphones available in the market. These phones might seem similar in many ways to some but they all have that ?plus? factor that make each of them stand out.

Breakdown

If you?re a bit of a connoisseur when it comes to mobile entertainment, you?ll find that the Elephone P9000 will suit you best. Its 5.7-inch 2K display is very hard to miss. It comes in two variants, the 4GB and 6GB that comes with 32GB and 128GB of storage, respectively. Although the price is still unknown, reports suggest that the lower version is expected to cost around $250. The 6GB version will be a bit more than that.

In terms of camera, these four come neck and neck with each other. It is actually quite difficult to decide which one is the best. LeEco, Meizu, and Elephone offer 20 megapixels or more. Even though the Redmi Pro only offers a 13-megapixel snapper, it does, however, come with a second 5-megapixel camera. This gives the user the ability to make focus adjustments to an image even after it being taken.

Helio X25

Finally, the battery. Quite clearly, the winner here is the Redmi Pro. With its 4050mAh capacity, you can fiddle with your phone all day without having to worry about charging.

Excluding the Elephone P9000 (since it?s still unreleased) the best choice in terms of value for money is the LeEco Le 2 Pro. The only problem is, it?s only offered in 32GB storage. For those who want more, the next bet is the Xiaomi Redmi Pro.
