The efficiency of sd 732g is really good for long gaming sessions... I have played Apex legends on Normal setting and Max Fps and getting 50 fps constantly. But yes there are occasional stutters here and there

Last year's Redmi Note 10 Pro got better specs than this year's Note 11 Pro I don't know what it is on Xiaomi's mind when they used this awful rebranded Helio g95 on their midrange I mean come on it doesn't even support 4k!!!

Go with SD. Longevity-wise, any phone using either of these chips will get 1-2 years of updates max. At least with Snapdragon chips, you have the option of flashing a custom ROM once the phone reaches its EOL.

If you want stability and long term consistent performance then you should go for Snapdragon. Most of the games are optimize for Adreno GPU instead of Mali GPU and Snapdragon chips have better driver and g cam support than MediaTek.. :-)

Every Game release First Optimize with Qualcomm you then mali even Talking About gaming Adreno is Much better than mali and You are Right 🔥🔥🔥
