Being a gamer I think snapdragon 730G gives the best performance over Exynos Chipset. Further more Exynos Chipsets are slow and at time the phone gets hot and has bugs problems. I have issues with my Samsung Galaxy M31s which turns out to be using the Exynos 9611 chipset

Even exyno's mali gpu are not as power full as Snapdragon adreno gpu that's why we get too much laggy and frame drops in one ui only and there is no talk about , gaming , as it is long time task so your gpu frequency not only matter but also the gpu shades cores also matter , more core more long term gaming , Not only the gpu is week but also the cpu is also week , as it has a cluster of 4 by 4 not 2 by 6 as Snapdragon , hear not only cruster matter but also the frequency and also the optimization
