730g or 720g or 732g will literally give the same performance but going for 720g is better as for pricing But g90t is cheaper in pricing and better in some aspects against 730/20/32g like better GPU, faster ram , overall high clock speed that aids up with HMP. Meaning you get better performance in g90t But 732/30/20g have their advantage as well better cpu clock speed(special single tasking), better media accessibilities, lower power consumption Well out here data speed is so bad that processor data speed doesn't matter Sim gives around 100kb/s-5mb/s And wifi gives around 100-200mb/s
