Actually dimensity didn't give you a great performance in Cod Mobile but it's better for daily works even it's better than sd 720 for daily works because of its lower energy consumption.

Actually Dimensity 700 has a better GPU Than 720G even 750G. In Genshin Dimensity 700 can give you 30-40 FPS while 720G even 750G is really struggling to give above 32 FPS

As you can clearly see in the specs comparison that there is no kuch difference. Also most of the games are well optimized for the sd chipset. As far as 5G is considered it is goun to be very limited and unstable in the initial period as there are still time of problems with the 4g network in Indian. 5G network has a smaller coverage area compared to 4G.

Still Snapdragon 23 June 2021 14:12
I'd still choose the Poco M2 Pro over the Poco M3 Pro. 5G is nowhere near and the 700 doesn't stand against the 720g.

Bros, LOL , Inside the country ,also well known town don't have good 4g connectivity . Poor internet connection or poor speed . Then you're telling us about Future 5G ... It's totally funny . And about Antutu score it's a Software don't trust them . Best way of finding Best chipset is User experience. And you also remember, All the application developer in whole world is developing applications for Snapdragon processor. So it's enough to say that Snapdragon is best then Mediatek.

MD Mahmudul, Well said. I would prefer snapdragon than mediatek, as far as I know. Mediatek processor are more on camera performance, while snapdragon processor are for gaming.

sd fanboy 06 October 2021 11:31
Subomo T. Teko, Well as my name says. Im an sd fanboy i have both phones with sd 720g and dimensity 700... I play genshin also.. and my dimensity 700 plays genshin well on medium settings with high render on 55-60fps... It also runs emulator well. Games are most being optimized for snapdragon.. maybe because they need to be optimized.. but on mediatek they are fast even without optimizing games for it.. i still love snapdragon for custom roms etc. But i give this one to mediatek. Also 5g coverage is good at my place so im taking advantege of dm700's 5g
