I tried snapdragon 720G and snapdragon 765G honestly difference is noticeable! Snapdragon 720G (including 730G 732G) is 100% mid range! Snapdragon 765G is also mid range! But it give somehow flagship lvl feeling and smoothness! And more decent GPU which helps to play games with almost maximum graphics settings! So I prefer snapdragon 765G Qualcomm already released snapdragon 780G & 778G i suggest u guys to buy only these chips! Otherwise your mid range with snapdragon 720G will not satisfy you! User experience is bad, CPU is weak! Btw but snapdragon 780G is very decent probably most powerful mid range now! 5nm process adreno 642L GPU 😁 finally gives 3 years old flagship feeling! But don't buy those low ranges like 6xx series they're pretty bad! And not worth it in 2021
