Soon Galaxy A72 will be launched. Then you could compare them again by using more or less the same OS and other similar parts (A71 vs A72). That is if there is sill interest for this comparison...

Adreno 618 GPU Freq in -> 730 - 650mhz 732G/720G - 750Mhz. Just start camera app, run Cpu-z in a floating window,, just see the GPU base Freq of 267Mhz climbing to 750Mhz in 5 steps, 355,430,565,650 and then max 750mhz.

Hi. This depends on the vendor. Developers can change GPU clocks for particular phone or\and ROM. We will investigate this later and maybe add new fields like "boost clock" or something like that. Thanks for your comment.
