Review by Tenzys Tech
CPU of snapdragon 870 is clocked up to 3.2 GHz while snapdragon 750G is clocked up to 2.2 GHz which makes the SD 870 a better option than SD 750G.
GPU of chipset snapdragon 870 is equipped with Adreno 650 while the snapdragon 750G is equipped with Adreno 619. Frankly, Adreno 650 is much better than Adreno 619.
Max size of main memory (RAM) supported in SD 870 is 16 GB while SD 750G only supports up to 12 GB. In fact, in SD 870 memory type is LPDDR5 which is energy efficient while SD 750G comprises LPDDR4x which is less energy efficient as compared to LPDDR5.
Energy efficiency and battery life
As the facts seen by the specifications in which SD 870 built on 7nm process technology while on another hand SD 750G built on 8nm technology. This concludes that SD 870 is better than SD 750G as the small size semiconductor indicates the more no. of transistors embedded in SOC (System On Chip) which is not only energy efficient but also significantly enhances the performance of the chipset.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 870
The overall good chipset in flagship series.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G
