If you want a phone power packed in processing and gaming at a low price then buy Samsung f62 which has Exynos 9825. Exynos 9825 is better in benchmark scoring and GPU stabilization which is, even more, better than snapdragon 750g. Exynos 9611 is not worth buying. Neither is snapdragon 720g or 730g. So upgrade your dreams to buy the better.

Bjimo, Be sensible. All processors generate heat. The thing to look for is which generate less. Or which has better cooling system. Writing this from Realme 6i - G90T. And yes for gaming go with Mediatek. Remove the cover and then game.

Have you bought M2 Pro? How was the experience with UI and app loading time? Buggy??

No i have been using m21 for about 1.5 years. Haven't seen any loss in efficiency. Also I play games like pubg cod etc. it's a good processor.

Yash, Nah man. PUBG does run decent enough but for shorter periods. I play with the back cover removed and it starts to heat up within 20 mins (smooth + extreme), it starts to heat up and my hands start to sweat so badly and I'm in a room with fan on while playing bas well. It's just a bad processor for mid rangers currently. I'm using m21 as well.
