As some of you may know, the most important feature in any smartphone or smart device in general is the processor that is inside its body, since it is what makes them work the way they do and with the speed and efficiency with which they do it. Today we are going to make a comparison between two of the newest and one of the most popular processors that MediaTek has, and this is the strong and powerful war between the Helio G25 vs G35 vs G70. In this article we will show some of the characteristics that these three processors provide, and we will tell you which the best choice is.
About release dates, it is obvious that the Helio G25 and G35 have a great advantage. This processor was shown to the world a very very short time ago, since it was just a couple of days ago, on June 30, 2020. Having said that, and although the Helio G70 was not presented long ago, it does have time hanging around the market, since it was presented a couple of months ago, on April 18, 2020.
First off let us start with the process technology which determines the power consumption and performance of the SoC. Keep in mind the lower the number the better is the performance as well as battery life efficiency. Well, the recently launched Helio G25 and G35 work alongside a 12nm TSMC process, which, while not the most up-to-date on the market, still works great. Having said that, the G70 also has this same process, so in this category, we are in the presence of a triple tie.
It is time to start this great comparison of processors, and we will start talking about the CPUs that are inside. In terms of CPU configuration, the Helio G25 and G35 are based on a construction of eight Cortex A53 cores, although these are distributed in different ways: In the G25, the eight cores are high-performance and operate at a speed of 2GHz, while in the G35 these eight processors are arranged in 4 high-performance operating at 2.3GHz speed and 4 low-performance operating at 1.8GHz speed.
On the other hand, in the Helio G70, too, we get one of eight cores, which are arranged as follows: 2 Cortex A75 cores are high performance and operate at a speed of 2.0GHz, while the other six cores Cortex A755 are low performance and operate at a speed of 1.7GHz.
Observing the way in which the cores of these three processors are distributed, it can be seen that the Helio G25 could be in the lead, because it has the largest number of high-performance cores.
Turning to talk about the GPUs that are inside these three powerful processors, in terms of graphical performance, both the Helio G25 and Helio G35 work with the IMG PowerVR GE8320, just that the G25 comes with a frequency of 650MHz and the G35 comes with a frequency of 680MHz. On the other hand, and talking about the Helio G70, this processor has a Mali-G52 2EEMC2 GPU with a frequency of 820MHz.
Now, having seen the GPU of these three processors, and while the G25 and G30 work great and can be easily used, the reality is that the 820MHz frequency that the G70 has given, in short, the first place in this category.
Going on to talk a bit about this point, in AnTuTu, these three MediaTek processors obtained the following results: the Helio G25, in third place, obtained a score of 102,778 points; the Helio G35, in second place, obtained a score of 109,489 points and, lastly and first, the Helio G70 obtained a total score of 190,165 points, which makes it a winner in this category.

As for connectivity, the G25 and G35, both processors have support for Wifi 5802.11 a/c, Bluetooth in its version 5.0, FM radio, LTE connectivity, as well as up to 6GB of LPDDR4x RAM and eMMC 5.1 storage. Also, in relation to the G70, in terms of connectivity, this processor supports the aggregation of 4G operators, Wifi 5 802.11 a/c, Bluetooth in its version 5.0 and up to 8GB of 1,800 MHz LPDDR4x RAM and eMMC 5.1 storage.
As for camera support, the Helio G25 is capable of supporting a single camera of up to 21 megapixels at 30fps and a dual camera of 13 megapixels + 8 megapixels, while the Helio G35 raises the ante for a single camera of up to 25 megapixels and a dual 13 megapixel + 13 megapixel camera. In both cases AI optimizations are included, including simulated Bokeh mode and support for electronic image stabilization.
With that said, if you look at the photographic facet of the Helio G70, it supports a single 48 megapixel camera or a dual camera system of up to 16 megapixels + 16 megapixels with support for video recording up to 30fps. In this sense, it has capabilities for facial unlocking and for the tasks of an AI camera, such as the Bokeh effect, object recognition, scene detection and the smart photo album.
Finally, to see what is the best option among these processors at the budget level, we have to know the price of the phones they are on. In a second place, in a tie, and being the processors with the highest price, we have the Helio G35 that is inside the Xiaomi Redmi 9C and the Helio G70 that can be found inside the Realme C3 that have priced at $101 and lastly, and being the cheapest and taking first place, we have the Helio G25 within the Xiaomi Redmi 9A which has a market value of $84.
Concluding this Helio G25 vs G35 vs G70 comparison, we must say that it depends on the user to select the processor that best suits its needs. That being said, and guided by this comparison, it can be seen that, and while the G25 and G30 processors were released just days ago and there was high hope that they would be better than previous ones, the Helio G70 strongly demonstrated that regardless of their time on the market, some processors can be better than others. Not only does it work with scorching power, but this can be seen represented in your AnTuTu score, and that is actually more than enough to determine the best processor.
