Which is the best midrange chipset in the market right now? Well, The war never ends because the company keeps introducing newer chips to compete with each other. 2018 was all about the Snapdragon 636 and Kirin 659, Also Helio P60 is popular at the moment. All the processor are really powerful and won’t make a huge difference in real life performance.
