My G95 is very impressive in gaming. But, not sure about the battery usage.

G95 is way better. I used both processors in everyday use. G95 is much snappier in every way. I always used Qualcomm Snapdragon processors and it's my first ever MediaTek Helio processor and I'm really impressed.

G95 is not optimized.730g is far better for everything .730g is more consistent but when your budget is low you should go with mediatek.

I would say better to go with 730g. May be Helio g95 is slightly better than Snapdragon 730g in gaming feild but g95 is not battery efficient where as 730g is far more better in case battery department. Now if you compare both of them just because of slightly better score in gaming I would not go for helio.
