G80 is always better than Snapdragon 662-665 Lol i tried to play Genshin Impact in snapdragon 662-665 using Redmi 9T but literally disappointed it goes to 20-10FPS it's not playable even i set to the lowest and it's not smooth in navigation even i scroll down to fb. Lg i feel it's not smooth even in pubg, but when i try G80 it's much better i can play Genshin Impact medium to high, much smoother in Pubg/Codm and smooth even i scroll down in fb,ig i also didn't feel any fps drop playing Mobile legends and Wildrift. it's stayble at 60Fps compare to sd662-665 it has 30-50fps sometimes 60fps if you're only farming but when clash start it goes 30fps sometimes 20fps the only good thing about SD is the battery capacity/usage it has low battery usage compare to Mtk.

You are too focus on performance ahead. Every chip below G90T are really bad. It not just about battery. It about power consumption. Overheat. Not long support. Not long lifespan (I mean by the time performance go down this is sickness of mtk G and P series. Not dimensity). Most importantly is optimize for game. For me my Snap 665 can play low graphics fps 17-28 for a long time without heating up too much like overheating issue of mtk. So mtk are bad

Johnny VN, SD665 takes the lead in every day batt usage and some casual gaming but talk about mainstream gaming performance where the Helio G series shines the most it never disappoints. My 8 months old Tecno Pova with G80 still dominates mostly in heavy demanding games and here is my legit experince. PUBG:HDR/EXTREME(GFX) 35 to 45 frames according to the pc fps meter and 98% stability CODM(BR):MEDIUM/HIGH 32 to 40 frames and 96% stability (Fun fact about G80 is that it is not optimized by CODM devs but still runs the game at a stable frame rate) NBA2K20:ALL HIGH INCLUDING CLOTH SIM 53-59 fps with 97% stability. It's normal for every phone to heat up during gaming because of their spontaneous core works and battery consumption, if your phone doesn't heat up during heavy gaming damn maybe your phone has Sub-zero support! In my own opinion Helio G80 is comparable to SD678 and falls behind SD712 in terms of everyday performance.

guest_93, guest_93, yo ! WTF ? you think you gaming on a phone that doesn't heat up and slow down the performance fps drop ??? PUBG:HDR/EXTREME(GFX) 35 to 45 frames 98% stability ??? ODM(BR):MEDIUM/HIGH 32 to 40 frames and 96% stability ??? Yo im not a stupid don't try to cheating on me man. Wake up ! Real Life is not a dream. if all thing you said is true then my friend phone use "FLAGSHIP SoC" Snapdragon 845 and 855 are weaker than G80 ? and G80 is a true king flagship budget chipest ? Lfmao... OMG i can't believe it. The thing is what i said is not heating up too much bro im not saying that it not heat. The thing "Overheat" are different from the "heating up not too much". of course the mean i said from it is snapdragon doesn't drain too much battery. it optimaze good for daily use. of course G series of MTk are focus on "Gaming" yeah about gaming it is a little bit better but for long term daily use sometime gaming a bit i still recommend Snapdragon or MTK Dimensity (yes this time Dimensity do good work) avoid Helio G series.

Johnny VN, Clearly you are exaggerating, I have owned a realme 5 and redmi 9 for a year now, and I use them as my current main driver cuz I like both MIUI and realme UI, I used them both for gaming too, heavily demanding games like ragnania, genshin, honkai, punishing gray, sky, the sun, and other hack n slash or open world game. I have never touched the SDM 7xx series or helio p series but I have used dimensity, G, and SDM 8xx series For realme 5 with snap 665's case it ran fairly smoothly on my social apps like reddit, pixiv, Facebook and other stuff but stutters sometimes when loading images or after a few down scrolling, on gaming it ran fairly good on open world Games like sky but the let down is the frequent stutters on 1080p or high res graphics probably due to the 720p screen res. I bought it around April 2020. For redmi 9 with g80's case it ran much better on all the games with less stuttering but it is still there, it is much smoother on social apps cuz it doesn't freeze after a few scrolls, on games it is pretty weird, when I ran games at 720p graphics res it stutters like hell and is capped at 30 fps, but when I ramp up to 1080p it ran much better idk why, games like honkai or punishing gray both run at 60 fps on almost all out setting, but genshin ran at 20 to 30fps with frequent but still a lot less stutters than SDM 665. I still have my redmi 9 on MIUI 11 cuz some people said MIUI 12 drains battery, bought it around June 2020. For overheating I don't think both of them overheat because both don't go above 39°C, battery usage is slightly better in the realme but not significant. Don't know what ur problem is with mediatek but mediatek G series isn't as bad as you "described", dunno bout P series tho.

I am Realme 6i or realme narzo 10 user i had excellent performance when i purchased but now there's some performance drop which i can see but mostly the problem is bugs, they will fix it with software update. I can play CODM at medium graphics but it will produce some heat so i prefer low graphics which is better and produce less heat. Please don't try to play 4k vedios on realme 6i because it causes phone to over heat. Definitely because it didn't support 4k but i tried to play it results phone to overheat while playing that vedio but it's temporary. I tried heavy graphics games which also results in over heating while playing only medium and low is not heating. These heating issue occurs few months ago since i purchased nearly going to one year . Coming to the main concern realme 6i is good because it contains less bloatware that redmi note 8 but the worrying thing is realme is also adding some bloatwares after some updates. The thing is realme 6i don't have 5 ghz wifi because i don't take it that much because i don't use wifi if you are a wifi user you will definitely worry about this thing.

A cpu without 4K video playback is useless. What if you want to see a video that someone sent you but it is on 4K? So Snapdragon wins.

Redmi 9's biggest advantage is the 1080p display. Realme 5 has a 720p and that aside it's very dull and low brightness.

No doubt that redmi 9 has Good desplay but you can't say that realme 5 has low brightness issues... Although realme has 720p display but brightness is enough to use in day light and color saturation is also amazing

My vote goes to Snapdragon's 665 because GPS has always been better with the Snapdragons that I have owned. GPS connection has been much quicker and more stable. Don't know if the Helio G80 has finally caught up, but I'm not willing to try anymore.
