I have realme x7 and mt 800u is a very optimised processor. app opening time is very fast and ram management is also good. also the doesn't heat just gets warm during heavy tasks.

Free fire is pretty light weight 720g/g90t can handle the game pretty smoothly So 750g/800u shouldn't have much problem

750G never over hitted but Mediatek's have a huge problem in hitting issue Honestly,GPU&CPU performance more than poor in Mediatek where snapdragon is really outstanding.and then Mediatek's Algorithms can’t support sony's camera lens where Exynos & Snapdragon can give us some satisfaction 😇😇😇😇

Huh? Mi10i heats like crazy while playing mlbb, Cpu and GPU performance is poor in MediaTek? 800u GPU is arguably better than 750g (backed up with antutu) And also 750g cpu have it's own advantages and 800u has its own Meaning 750g>800u and 800u>750g Also MediaTek algorithm can't support sony lens? Realme x7 possessed sony lens bruh. Your opinion was completely biased I am planning to sell mi10i and proceed with realme x7

Everyone is raving on Snapdragon, but real world performance (not including FPS in games) between Realme 7 MediaTech G95 and Poco X3 Snapdragon 732G showed Snapdragon being just slow as hell. I also believed the hype, that with snapdragon you buy piece of mind, but not after this comparison I've seen in real life. Games loading times just trashed Snapdragon too and Realme had 2GB less DDR memory.... I'm much more interested in Realme 7 5G now, than the Xiaomi Note 9 Pro 5G Paper stats is a problem in PC market, but they are exposed much more there. I don't see articles exposing real world results in comparison to paper stats.

My samsung has snapdragon 750g and it works flawlessly and the ram management is real good. App opening and closing time is really quick and I never felt stutters while doing anything. I believe, The skin that mi uses is very heavy on the processor side.

I think the item download speed should be updated to separate 4G, 5G and wifi It seems that it is quite an important index on how their modem is performed (theoretically)

Power to Performance ratio - SD 750 is best and Create stable Smartphone with long term reliability. More developer friendly!! Price - Mediatek Dim 800u - Create VFM for any smartphone , No long terms support during Android updates. Less developer friendly!! Overall SD 750 may lead in mid-range devices in 2021.
