I tested both of them. Albeit the Helio G37 was released two months later, the Helio G85 performs 70% better, but the Helio G85 does drain the battery in a short period of time. I ran AnTuTu 5 Benchmark, and the Helio G85 score was dramatically higher than the Helio G37. According to the GPU, the Helio G37 has "better" graphics in SOME games than the Helio G85.
