ARM-based chips like the Samsung Exynos, Nvidia Tegra, Qualcomm Snapdragon, and MediaTek MT are among the most commonly used Systems-on-a-chip (SoC) found on smartphones and tablets we all love. Apple also uses ARM-based chips for their iPhones and iPads. But, there are also a couple of handful devices now running on Intel-based SoCs.
Last week, we saw 2 local mobile players releasing their first Intel powered tablets – the Engage 9i tablet by Starmobile and the CloudPad 800w by CloudFone (Read our head-to-head comparison of these 2 tablets here). With these releases, a hype sparked, which got us thinking: Are Intel powered devices more exciting than devices running on ARM-based SoCs?
