Processor And RAM

Apple and Google differ in their approach around the processor for their respective devices. Google opts for a lower-end chip than the one found in premium Pixel devices, while Apple goes with the same A14 Bionic processor that’s used in the rest of Apple’s iPhone 12 line.

Apple is continuing to call the A14 Bionic “the fastest chip in a smartphone.” The six-core CPU in the chip offers strong performance by reaching as much as 50-percent faster speeds than “the fastest competing smartphone chips,” according to Apple. That enables “console-quality gaming experiences, powerful computational photography, and more,” Apple said.

By contrast, the Pixel 4a is powered by a mid-range Qualcomm processor--the eight-core Snapdragon 730G. Users can expect better performance from the iPhone 12 Mini over the Pixel 4a, based on benchmark tests showing that the A14 Bionic has outperformed even higher-end Qualcomm chips than the Snapdragon 730G. However, the Pixel 4a does compensate by including 6 GB of RAM, compared to a reported 4 GB of RAM for the iPhone 12 Mini.
