Me and my friend are using Intel atom processor and snapdragon qualcom...however intel makes this cheaper it is the higher process but consumes lots of power if power goes up everything is gone.for a higher usage I would recommend intel processor but otherwise if ur ok with limited usage snapdragon qualcom is all the more best then intel...
pls check for voice supported model.
