But in terms of battery, Snapdragon surely wins because it's a 6nm chip compared to the 12nm chip of Mediatek.

The Helio G88 on Tecno Pova 3 showed the opposite, it performed much better than the Snapdragon 680 on the Redmi Note 11. Theoretically, the Snapdragon chips are all better than the Helio and Dimensity. , but it's just a theory, but in reality, MediaTek's chips have gotten better and better, it's not the same as before, there are many better performances than Qualcomm's chips when they are rated as equal to each other, a good example is Snapdragon 8 Gen1 and Dimensity 9000. This is my personal opinion.
