Poco m3 using 662. I know Poco phones are gaming phones don't thick anything snapdragon is only made for smooth gaming and long time gaming you are chek about other phones above 50000 all company using snapdragon, not MediaTek because it knows only snapdragon are made flagships chip and power efficiency and you are chek in real-life performance of snapdragon and MediaTek.

Snapdragon662 Vs HelioG85 19 November 2021 10:26
Snapdragon 662 Or Helio G85? For me, Snapdragon 662 is better than the g85 because sd662 has better support and yes it's true Game Developers OPTIMIZE Their Games more often than the helio g85 PLUS! Snapdragon 662 is much more reliable as well as the other sd models, And Snapdragon 662 has a better memory and overall faster storage, So If I were you I will mostly choose The Snapdragon 662.

I highly recommend the Redmi 9t Sir because it has a lot of advantages over Poco M3. Redmi 9t is a quad-camera which is equivalent to 60 megapixels than Poco M3 has only a triple camera which is equivalent to 52 megapixels. Lastly, Redmi 9t offers a 6GB Ram compared to Poco M3 it only offers a 4GB ram. Poco M3 has also bugs when it comes to rebooting the device is not automatically turning on.

1. Narzo 30 comes with better G95 processor.12.5k(4gb, 64) 5000 mAh, better camera 2. Poco M3 with 662 is better than remaining two. 11k(6gb, 64) 6000 mAh Moto g30 comes good features but tends to lag. not sure about this Micromax in1 comes with G80 don't buy phones who come below G85.

Narzo 30a gives more performance than redmi 9 power even redmi has more specs the miui really low optimised so that processor and other specs didn't give its actual performance realme ui is far more better than miui Another thing is that if you take narzo 20 instead of narzo 30a you will definitely get more camera quality price difference between them (4gb ram) is only 500
