Review by Tenzys Tech
CPU of Dimensity 1200 is clocked up to 3.0 GHz while Snapdragon 778G is clocked up to 2.4 GHz which makes the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 a better chipset.
MediaTek Dimensity 1200 is equipped with Mali-G77 MC9 GPU while the snapdragon 778G is equipped with Adreno 642L. Frankly, Mali-G77 MC9 is a much better GPU than Adreno 642L. Also Read: Snapdragon 780G vs Snapdragon 768G.
The memory frequency of Dimensity 1200 is 4266 MHz while in Snapdragon 778G it is 3200 MHz. But Snapdragon 778G supports LPDDR5 RAM which is much more power-efficient than LPDDR4x RAM of Dimensity 1200. It concludes that for the speed purpose Dimensity 1200 is better but in the energy efficiency section, Snapdragon 778 is better. So choose wisely according to your priority. Snapdragon 778G supports UFS 3.1 latest storage type but Dimensity supports UFS 3.0, which means data read-write speed is better in Snapdragon 778G.
Display and Camera
In-display section, Dimensity 1200 supports display up to 2520 x 1080 resolution with 168Hz refresh rate while display resolution in Snapdragon 778G supports up to 3200 x 1800 with 144 Hz refresh rate only. So there is a tough competition between the screen comparison between Dimensity 1200 vs Snapdragon 778G. So, it’s up to you that which one you can prefer.
