As both are almost same in performance but G70 is cheaper, So I'll suggest G70.

They are not "almost same in performance" - the benchmark numbers are messed up, and make no sense, but the frame rates for the demanding games seem legit - 43 fps vs 31 fps for PUBG tells you everything you need to know about the performance difference.

Emil, Check the benchmark numbers then you’ll be able to see the results and would be able to choose which one is better for you...............

Emil, The devices used to test also matters...i think note 9 is supposed to do a little bit better than c3 regarding the higher budget thus having higher capabilities at least even a bit discluding only raw chipset performance...(mostly available base variant of c3 is 3/32 while the note 9 is 4/64 on the other hand)
