Are you sure there is no gap of cpu performance?. 20mhz is big for mobile cpu. This site is unbelieveable

No It's not 20mhz. It's 2mhz!

Saying they're exactly the same when one has half the download speed is an odd thing to do.

In my point of view there is one critical difference in favor of the 665: the download speed. The download speed of the 665 is 600 Mbps vs 390 Mpbs for the 662. So the download speed of the 665 is 53% faster than the speed of the 662. This is a big difference for such a critical feature.

SD 665 pros: Better LTE modem (X12 -upto 600mbps) SD 662 pros: Support for Wi-Fi 6, India's NavIC satellite system. Not much difference really. Boils down to our network preference [better mobile data(sd665) or Wi-Fi(sd662)].

The limited clock speed makes the big.LITTLE technology almost useless with only 200MHz difference for heavy tasks. I think this is just a temporary solution for overheating problems.

So basically they're the same chip except the 662 has a slightly slower NPU and 4G modem, has newer Bluetooth 5.1 and virtually identical real-world performance while costing less than the 665.
