I am having an Oppo Reno 6 5g as my primary phone with dimensity 900 and it shows amazing performance. With gfx tool on PUBG, it plays ultra HD settings with no lag on 60fps. Oppo has a well optimization for this chipset.

The only thing the 900 beat the 778G with is GPU turbo boost, which even with, the SD is still better or at least on par. Samsung M53 uses a 108mp camera while the older M52 uses a 64 one. Because the M52 uses the 778G, it takes far better photos than the 108mp camera on the successor, let alone a much better battery life.

Both processors are of A78 cortex, then why sd778 is ARMv8.4-A and mt900 is just ARMv8-A?

Lol OnePlus Nord CE 2 with dimensity 900 costs the same as iqooz5 which has 778G with ufs 3.1 and LPDDRX5 RAM. I don't mind the type of display so don't come at me saying oneplus has AMOLED.

Even though the SD 778G is better, but due to that small deference of specs, yet the prices of this two have a big difference, with dimensity 900 phones being cheaper. Not over priced like the SD 778G phones, making a difference of prices range btw $50 to $100.due to price ands specs comparison, I go for dimensity 900

There's a huge difference. That's why Mediatek released the Dimensity 920 right away, since the 900 can't compete with the SD778G.

MTK920 can't stand in competition with SD778G. You can't realize the difference right at this moment, but after 2-3 years difference will be quite significant. OnePlus has saved costs by implementing MTK DIM 920 for which assembled AMOLED display. Now it's upon you What's your preference. For me, performance matters. IQOO Z5 too has a decent display both indoor as well as outdoor. I personally recommend IQOO Z5 5G.
