• Part 1: Battery saving features of MTK MT6589 / MTK6589 and Qualcomm MSM8225Q / MSM8625Q
  • Part 2: GPUs in MTK MT6589 / MTK6589 and Qualcomm MSM8225Q / MSM8625Q
  • Part 3: Memory/ Encoding and Decoding / Official Resolution Support

Now in part 4 we’ll finish it up with a few odds and ends:

  • The camera support for MTK MT6589 / MTK6589 will be 13mp, while Qualcomm MSM8225Q / MSM8625Q will be a paltry 8mp. Yes, MediaTek / MTK has spanked Qualcomm again.
  • Qualcomm 8225Q will support WCDMA, and Qualcomm 8625Q will support WCDMA as well as CDMA. MTK MT6589 / MTK6589 will support WCDMA and TDSCDMA.

So, now we’ve determined that MediaTek’s MTK MT6589 / MTK6589 easily beats out Qualcomm MSM8225Q / MSM8625Q by significantly besting it in several key areas – video encoding / decoding, camera and GPU.

Coming up next, which should conclude this series, the Qualcomm MSM8930 S4 Plus beating out MTK, and why you likely shouldn’t care.
