M51 is cheaper and has consistent performance compared to F62 which is expensive with inconsistent performance (lasts less than an hour).

i owe both M51 and F62, and a previous owner of poco X2 and F1 the difference is noticeable between m51 and f62 by a large margin number of tasks from simply unlocking your phone, auto focus, taking a pic , transfering/moving/copying files, video and audio processing, yup i can count more but lets stop here. obviously 9825 is not a perfect chip think of 9825 as a gattling gun and 7xxG like a hand revolver the gattling gun can fire thousand of bullets non stop but will eventually overheat after short period of time meanwhile the revolver can keep shooting and reloading for a very long period of time my point is the 9825 gives the burst of energy when needed but it will throttle after 2hrs (in my case i game around 40min - 1:30 mins average per session) but if you play more than 2hrs per session i dont think 9825 is for you. on the other hand 7xxG provides stable ratios over a consistent period of 4hr+ while both have their differences, i'd say i like both of them. the battery life is more or less same on both the phones, one week i use m51 and the other week i use f62 for most of the daily work, so the phones together last me a whole week without charging (like a dream eh?) on the emulation front, i didnt notice even slight difference between them hell even there was negligible difference in kirikiroid2 and exagear between 9825 vs 730G vs 845 vs 636 (max pro m1) though there was slight better fps in psp an ps emulation but not THAT much to make you feel like you upgraded i think anyone who has both 9825 and a 7xxG phones will love both of them. you need performance? 9825 got your back you need stability? sure! 700s got your back. but if you need to buy just one phone you should buy a 800 series snapdragon one, it will give both performance and stability, but mind you the latest 888 and 870 have heating issues. so check the phones before you buy em.

Thanks a lot for this comparison. I was pretty confused about which phone to buy but now I think I'll go for the M51 because I like the stable performance of the 730G SOC and I don't even play games on my phone that much so 730G will be better for the longevity of the phone.

sd 870 doesnt overheat. It depends software and your country's whether. Miui-shit is the heaviest skin. I own moto g100(moto edge s) and it doesnt overheat. Yeah it becomes warmer but you wont notice any heating issue.

According to my personal and humble opinion, the difference is not wide between the Snapdragon 730G processor and the Exynoes 9825. I own a m51 phone and it works smoothly with me. I have not tried it on Pubg only normal game's like strategic games or any online game.The question that remains, after a period of time, will the Exynos processor still work in the same capacity as it was when you first bought the phone, or will its efficiency weaken? According to my knowledge and experience with phones and other things related to phones, Snapdragon after a while will remain steadfast even with the passage of time, but Exynos I do not know how it will be with him.

Raw performance of exynos for short period of time is better but if we consider consistency it can’t match with snapdragon. Exynos gets thermal throttling way early. You can’t even play pubg on smooth extreme setting for more than 15 minutes.

The Exynos 9825 is better but is it as consistent or efficient as the Snapdragon 730g is why It’s too between F62 or M51
