Been using Infinix note 8i for almost 2 years and I swear the phone still runs smoothly and fast just like the first day I bought it runs all heavy games smoothly CODM GENSHIN IMPACT PUBD ETC thinks the g80 is really dope really fast and never lags.

These two processors are almost similar. So, the perfomance depends on software optimisation between these two processors.

This is not true Helio g85 is better than g80 other specs are same but there is difference betweenGPU frequency which is 950mhz in g80 and 1000mhz in g85 and during practical testing the g85 performs better than g80
