The worst phone chipset fails in the last fifteen years

Pretty looks, epic cameras, and features are no good if you have a mediocre chipset in your phone, but these chipsets are on this list for a very good reason

Chipsets are very crucial in building a smartphone that works well whenever you need to, but these SoC completely fails in one major aspect or another. But in all honesty, it is difficult to definitively say which phone processors are the “worst of all time” as this can be subjective and depend on personal preferences and needs.

However, here are a few processors that have received criticism or had issues in the past, so let’s see which (un)lucky processors made the list:

Qualcomm Snapdragon 810

This processor was released in 2015 and was used in several high-end smartphones. However, it had issues with overheating, which led to poor performance and reduced battery life.

MediaTek Helio X10

This processor was used in several mid-range smartphones and was criticized for its poor performance and battery life.

Samsung Exynos 7420

This processor was used in Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, it was criticized for its overheating issues and poor performance.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 400

This processor was used in several low-end smartphones, it was criticized for its poor performance and lack of support for newer features.

Intel Atom processors

These processors were used in some Android smartphones, they were criticized for their poor performance and lack of support for newer features.

It’s important to note that technology has been improving and processors that were bad in the past may have been updated and improved. Additionally, not all processors are created equal and some devices may have specific issues that are not related to the processor itself.
