Snapdragon SOC is best for high end phones.
But with Mediatek we can get a cheaper phone for normal usage.

I prefer Snapdragon over Media Tek as it is faster and efficient over the media Tex in my point of view.

I have one Mediatek processor smartphone from Xolo and its running stock Android so it still work smooth but if we use custom ROM on Mediatek then it's not so powerful at that stage. Snapdragon is the way to go.
