Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Play MSM8225Q vs Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Play MSM8225 vs Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Play MSM8625Q

Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Play MSM8225Q

► remove from comparison Qualcomm S4 Play MSM8225Q

The Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Play MSM8225Q is an entry level SoC for Android based tablets and smartphones. It contains four ARM Cortex-A5 CPU cores with a clock rate of up to 1.2 GHz, an Adreno 203 graphics card, an LPDDR2 memory controller, and a UMTS radio module.

The performance of the Cortex-A5 cores is rather low (per clock) and therefore the quad-core is only on par with dual-core Cortex-A9 SoCs. The single threaded performance is however much lower.

The integrated video engine allows the encoding and decoding of 720p videos.

► remove from comparison Qualcomm S4 Play MSM8625Q

The Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Play MSM8625Q is an entry level ARM SoC for cheap Android based smartphones. It integrates four Cortex-A5 cores clocked at up to 1.2 GHz, a Adreno 203 graphics card, a LPDDR2 memory controller and a CDMA/UMTS, GSM, GPRS, EDGE, HSPA, EV-DO Rev. A/B modem.

The Corex-A5 cores offer a lower performance per MHz than the Cortex A7 and A9 cores and therefore the SoC suffers from a rather low single thread performance. 

The SoC is manufactured in 45nm at TSMC, but thanks to the small Cortex-A5 cores, the SoC can be used in small smartphones.
