Most rubbish Dimensity phone for gaming is OnePlus Nord 2 Antutu score 540979 equivalent to Snapdragon 778g, I prefer you to buy Realme GT master edition.

Real-world performance and reviews from unbiased YouTubers show that 778g throttles less and gives a more stable and consistent performance in both CPU throttle and gaming tests, it's more battery efficient too, so 778g is the winner here if available for the same price.

MediaTek is actually making quite impressive processors nowadays but somehow developers and other tech-workers are not optimizing their stuff to be better compatible with MediaTek such as custom ROM developers and app developers.

Why didn't Snapdragon make the clock speed higher for the 778g it wouldn't have cost them anything apart from maybe TDP increase and would have been closer in performance to the Dimensity 1200. They missed out on a really solid upper midrange chip.

The main reason was most people wouldn't notice the power difference during normal use unless they do gaming, Also to make the chip power efficient.

If they provided 10W TDP, then their Snapdragon 870 would look like a bad deal and there might be a reason for power efficiency.

Clock speed 2.4MHz vs 3MHz not 2400MHz or 3000MHz Change that. And about processor Dimensity 1200 phone is flagship level processor still it costs less than Snapdragon 778 phones Why ?

For your information 2400Mhz = 2.4 Ghz ok. So what's written on site is correct.

It's 2.4GHz, and 3GHz, which translates to 2400MHz and 3000MHz. Check yourself before you correct someone.

For how much price you have bought...I recently bought it with an amazing deal on Flipkart for just Rs 21,000 and for that price this phone is a beast... No other phone is better than this one when compared under the 27K category....So, buying it under 21K is absolutely an amazing choice...
