Top 100 Smartphone SOCs in the World 2023

Welcome to today’s post. The title says that this post is going to be looking at the top 100 Smartphone SoCs in the world. In reality though, I have made a very comprehensive list of about 180 SoCs.

Last updated at 5:00am on September 22th, 2023 to reflect the latest SoCs on the market.

Using the title “top 100 Smartphone SoCs in the world” is a lot more catchy and is good for SEO (search engine optimization). In all honesty, I was going to go with just 100 but there are way too many important SoCs to leave out so I just did 200 instead.

What is an SoC?

An SoC is the processor of a smartphone. It contains the CPUs, GPU, ISP etc. It dictates how the phone perform in terms of processing tasks, apps and games, quality of photos and video, battery consumption, heating etc.


Why is an SoC important?

An SoC is the most important component of your smartphone. Without an SoC, nothing on your smartphone would run at all. The SoC also determines the grade of a smartphone as well as its pricing. A phone with Snapdragon 888+ would be referred to as a flagship and would cost a lot of money. Another phone with a Unisoc 7731E would be considered an entry-level device and would be dirt cheap.

Why do we rank SoCs?

All SoCs are not made equal, so therefore all SoCs are not the same. Some SoCs are better than others and some are far worse. Having a handy tool like this should help you know the level of the SoC on your phone and where it lies in the SoC pecking order.

Generally speaking, SoCs can either be flagships, flagship killers, midrangers, budget or entry level. These levels usually go a long way to determine how your SoC will handle apps, games, photography, communication etc.

Read: The problem with Benchmarks


This ranking was made possible by data gotten from Antutu, Geek Bench, 3D Mark, Tech Centurion and Nano reviews. While I mostly avoided 3G only SoCs and focused on 4G and 5G SoC, there were some 3G SoCs that I could not ignore so I added those in.

Benchmarks played a huge role in this rating. They are not perfect but they are the best that we have got.


It took almost a month to come up with this list. Where does your SoC rank? Do you think its real life performance matches its rating? Hit me up in the comments.
