732g got that cpu upgrade as well as GPU boost but still shows identical performance (720g is better in certain parts as per paper ) so basically 732g>720g but not worth the value if both are at same budget then I'd lean on 732g but the gap is so small that's it's not worth a penny

Do 732G has NavIC Support?(Official site didn't include it). Also 732G doesn't have Qualcomm Voice Assistant Accelerator for advanced voice use cases, Always-on echo cancellation and noise suppression. So no Google assistant and Alexa support. As per specs 720G has more good features than 732G. A negligible amount of higher performance is not a reason for considering 732G over 720G IMO.

Ok redmi and poco guys now its time for A52 vs RN10Pro ... I'll still choose A52 over RN10PRO b/c of Partial waterproofing, OIS equipped lens Better updates better OS Better resale value. Imo both processors dont have major changes; its just Qualcomm doing marketing there's a v little difference in both processors; For those who aren't gamers will see almost no difference. UDFP with Samsung's own SuperAmoled (way better thn one on Xiaomi) Finally Samsung will less likely to sell your data which Xiaomi does.

Dude, you're comparing 16000 vs 26000. And if you remove Samsung name from the a52 rn10 pro is still better than a52. And of course it has to provide some premium features if it's charging such a premium price. And I'm sick of " look my new awesome camera and water resistance ". Let's do a comparison shall we, but before that let me clarify I'm not a mi, poco or any brand's fanboy. When I buy a smartphone I see it for what it's worth, not what logo is printed on it's back. In other terms sensible people like to buy value for money smartphones. And the fact is Chinese brands generally provide more value for money smartphones than any of your apple, Samsung or Nokia. Coming to the comparison let's divide it in six parts, performance, display, battery, camera, design, ui. Forget it, it's too long.

Aryan sharma, Aryan, so I have to do everything as the government says?? Why don't you ask the government to start a smartphone company that delivers same or better specs at the same price as foreign competitors and maybe then people will stop buying Chinese products? Don't get me wrong, I hate China as much as any patriotic Indian does but while spending 15-20k on a smartphone, I'd choose nobody but the Chinese until better alternatives are available.

720G is the better SoC than 732G. It has more feature and almost same amount of performance. The only thing I want to see as a change in Note 9 is the display. I would be happy if they came with a sAMOLED display on 720G.

I wanted to know if I made a bad decision purchasing my Redmi Note 9S when it came out a few months ago. Seeing new ads for the Poco X3 on Facebook got me curious. Good to know my purchase isn't technically a waste. Poco X3 costs around $20 more for the same RAM and storage configuration as my Note 9S with a very narrow gap in performance. Still worth it.

Also check some battery drain test on youtube between note 9s and poco x3, note 9s/pro providing good battery consumption as compared to poco x3. The resources are with the minimal difference so not an issue. Camera pictures quality vary in both, comesout better from each other.
