Review by Tenzys Tech

CPU

CPU of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 870 is clocked up to 3.2 GHz Cortex A77 cores while MediaTek’s Dimensity 920 is clocked up to 2.96 GHz with updated Cortex A78 cores which makes the Dimensity 920 a better option due to its latest cores than Snapdragon 870.

GPU

GPU of chipset Snapdragon 870 is equipped with Adreno 650 which is fabricated on 7nm while the Dimensity 920 is equipped with Mali-G68 MC4 which is fabricated on 6nm. Frankly, according to the technical specifications, Mali-G68 MC4 is much better than Adreno 650.

Memory

In Snapdragon 870 memory type is LPDDR5 and is clocked at 2750 MHz frequency while Dimensity 920 comprises LPDDR5 at 3200 MHz frequency. So in this section Dimensity 920 would be a good option.

Energy efficiency and battery life

As the facts are seen by the technical specifications of both the SoCs, the Dimensity 920 is built on 6nm process technology while on other hand, Snapdragon 870 is built on 7nm technology. The smaller size semiconductor indicates a greater number of transistors embedded in the SoC (System on Chip), which does not only saves energy but also significantly improves the chipset’s overall performance hence, Dimensity 920 is better.
