Idk how they run mobile legends in ultra graphics for the G96. G96 doesn't support the Ultra setting in mobile legends.

What phone should I buy then? The dimensity 700 or helio G96????

Go for dimensity 700 or 810, because dimensity has smaller which is 7 nanometer means more batter will be saved than 12nm, and dimensity series also 5g.

Lol, It's not always the case, sure 12nm will consume more power than 7nm but battery life depends not only on the processor but on phone overall.

phones with g96 are a bit cheaper than the ones with dimensity 700 with almost the same specs. the only drawback of g96 is the lack of 5g support and heats up a bit more than dimensity 700. I bought one with g96 for $200, while its dimensity 700 counterpart is $250 - $320.

I don't understand why g96 gaming and cpu score is higher, dimensity 700 has 100 MHz higher gpu frequency, lower cpu nanometer, and higher cpu frequency.

Because of 2k video support which lessens the overall GPU score

Arukh, Both have only 2K support. What are you even talking about?

What do you mean? Dimensity 700 scores a little higher in both CPU and GPU. Out of 7 games, D700 won 4. Then again their GPU frequencies are both 950 MHz.

G96 is just dimensity 700 with 4k video support 12nm but no 5G support

Why g96 gpu antutu score is higher than dimensity 700? This page says that dimensity 700 gpu has higher frequency.

How the heck did g96 score higher than dimensity 700 on antutu, dimensity has higher gpu frequency and lower nanometer

Because of its 120hz support screen. For fast browsing G96, but if you look about their performance in-game, they have the same, and these two are typical, but different kinds of use.

Wait what? How come helio G96's gpu score higher than helio G95? Helio G96 has a lower gpu frequency instead of the same gpu lol

G96 is more stable and has a better memory. Overall G96 and G95 are the same processors.

Because of the graphics adapter, g95 GPU mali g-76 mp4 is much stronger than g96 GPU mali g-67 mc2.
