Snapdragon 780g is not good for gaming because stability has 79% but snapdragon 778g stability has 98%

But the 778g is less efficient than the 780g. What do you mean that it has better stability?

They're basically nearly the same phone. The 11 Lite 5G has been discontinued long before the 11 Lite NE was announced. Basically, the 11 Lite NE is its replacement due to the chip shortage.

there are almost the same. The Xiaomi Mi 11 lite 5g has Mimo wifi 2x1 (if you connect your phone to wifi 2.4ghz or 5ghz, you can generate wifi in 2.4ghz sharing the wifi you are connected). The Mi 11lite 5g NE (or new edition), doesn't have mimo wifi, so the phone cant do that, but, have 1 more GPS antenna, giving better GPS. That's the difference. if you want better GPS, the Ne if you want mimo wifi, the normal one.

780G is better for gaming and it has better battery life, I chose MI 11 Lite 5G over A52s and NE because it's better for gaming, anyway no one will see the difference in ram in practice.

Genau. Du sagst es. Hab auch das Normale. Ich verstehe es sowieso nicht. Von einer Reihe ewig viele Modelle rauszubringen. Die dann doch fast alles gleich sind. Kein Wunder dass die Chips immer weniger werden....😜

It's kinda disappointing that SD 780G has LPDDR4X ram running up to 2133Mhz while the SD 778G can run up to 3200Mhz which falls under the LPDDR5X category. Therefore, I give my vote for SD 778G for having a flagship ram speed.

So, which one is better. Xiaomi MI 11 lite 5G (780G) or the newer Xiaomi 11 lite 5G NE (778G)? I'm confused.

henk, I bought the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G on Amazon and I received the NE version. Honestly, it's a good smartphone and I don't think it could change so much between the two versions. They are pretty similar!

Depends, the NE has one more GPS antenna, so gives you a better location. the normal has mimo wifi, giving you the possibility to share wifi with another person (for example, you connect a 5ghz wifi, and then share in 2.4ghz this wifi using your phone as a modem)

The 780 manufactured at Samsung 5nm node and the 778 at TSMC 6nm node.

That might give the impression that the 780 at the smaller 5nm node should be the superior product but that wasn't necessarily the case. Since Samsung chip foundry hasn't managed to match the efficiency of the TSMC products. Also, Qualcomm discontinued the 780g production at Samsung. And judging by this comment: "A Xiaomi executive has claimed the Snapdragon 780G chips are hard to come by." it is safe to assume that there were some irreconcilable production problems with the SD 780g at Samsung.

780 still up there 04 September 2021 22:13
I feel the 780 still out performs the 778. The 778 is just the 870 to the 888.

How? 768 was between 835 and 845. 778 is between 845 and 855 . So it's average one generation improvement. Around 25 to 30%.

The 778g and the 780g chips are basically the same chips manufactured at different CPU foundries. The 778g is manufactured at TSMC on a 6nm node whereas the 780g was produced at Samsung on a 5nm node. One would expect a chip produced on a smaller node will have superior performance over a chip produced on a bigger nm node. But since in this case the manufacturer also is completely different that isn't as straightforward as it suggests. Between TSMC and Samsung chip foundries TSMC seems to be a few steps ahead. That lead causes TSMC chip production to have better yields and performance/efficiency. Apparently, the 780g produced by Samsung had slightly higher power usage, and the yields allegedly (no official data is disclosed on yields by Samsung) weren't as good as TSMC's. I guess Samsung 780g production was of significantly worse quality compared to TSMC's 778g that Qualcomm stopped the production of 780g chips completely. But that is just a guess, maybe housing the production of some of their chips at Samsung was just a stopgap measure because TSMC's capacity was limited and fully booked. But if it turned out the 780g produced by Samsung had better efficiency/performance then I think they would have chosen Samsung for the production of their Snapdragon chips. But Samsung is known not to be able to match TSMC's chips (nobody is). They lag behind especially concerning their efficiency. And it is rumored that their yields are so bad that you pay for working chips only instead of full wafers.

Iqoo Z5 with sd778g have lpddr5 ram , so 780 should support it too. But it doesn't matter because 780 was a one time thing for xiaomi only . You won't see it again.
