What is the right mobile processor for you based on your needs?

The processor is the heart and brain of a smartphone. This is what determines how fast your smartphone will run, how good the graphics will look and how long the phone will last. Clearly, it’s quite important. But not everyone needs a high-end processor. Depending upon your usage, you can choose between an entry-level, mid-range or a flagship processor. That will also determine how much to spend on a phone. Because flagship processors do fetch a high premium.
