Performance & Software
Here, Vivo is advertising this as a Gaming centric device but when it comes to its SoC, it uses a bit older Snapdragon 712 with a max Clock speed of 2.3Ghz where the GPU duties are handled by Adreno 616. It’s not a bad chip but it’s a bit older now compared to chips like the 730G, which is used in Mi Note 10 lite.
Snapdragon 730G is based on 8nm finfet technology which is more powerful and power-efficient than 10nm in 712. Also, Andreno 618 GPU on Mi Note 10 is quite powerful compared to Andreno 616 in vivo V19. Here Mi Note 10 lite wins when it comes to performance.
