The quality of your smartphone’s chipset determines how much enjoyment you get from your smartphone.
Also, In this specs comparison between the Snapdragon 780G and The Mediatek Dimensity 920, we will try to determine the best value for your money when considering a device with any of these chipsets.
And what you can expect from a device powered by the Snapdragon 780G or Mediatek Dimensity 920.
Simplified description of the workload of a chipset in a smartphone – Allroundreview.
The chipset of a device[smartphone] is in charge of every activity of a smartphone.
From picture taking, calling, gaming, charging, battery management and optimization; the chipset of a device takes care of these activities.
There is nothing that happens within a device or a smartphone that isn’t being orchestrated by the computing system [chipset] of that device.
Highlights of the Snapdragon 780G.
The Snapdragon 780G was launched in March, 2021. The SD 780G is equipped with 5G multi-band support, Octa-core CPU configuration based on a 5nm process.
Highlights of the Mediatek Dimensity 920.
Mediatek Dimensity 920 is a midrange chipset like the Snapdragon 780G. However the Dimensity 920 was launched in August, 2021. It is an Octa-core CPU, manufactured through a 6nm process and supports 5G.
Comparison: Snapdragon 780G vs Mediatek Dimensity 920.
A lot of hardcore users prefer snapdragon chipsets to that of Mediatek, and one consistent reason has been centered around snapdragon’s ability to embedded their GPU [Adreno] into their chipsets.
This is unlike Mediatek, whose GPU[Mali and others] is sourced externally.
The SD 780G though being a midrange chipsets, uses a more advanced 5nm process compared to the Mediatek Dimensity 920 that uses a 6nm process.
Bear in mind, that even the Snapdragon 860 that was launched in 2019 was manufactured using a 7nm process.
Tabular comparison specification: Snapdragon 780G vs Mediatek Dimensity 920.

From the above table, the Snapdragon 780G clearly has a upper hand thanks to its smaller 5nm compared to Dimensity 920 6nm.
Also, the SD 780G supports higher camera pixel of 192mp compared to MTK Dimensity 920 108mp support.
A better Adreno 642 GPU, compared to Dimensity 920 Arm Mali-G68 MC4 GPU.
Mediatek introduced a more advanced feature on the Mediatek Dimensity 920 called Data and call concurrency 3.0.
The above feature present on the Mediatek Dimensity 920 allows you make use of your SIM 1 for Internet connection during gaming, while simultaneously receiving a call on your SIM 2 without losing data or network connection. Awesome addition from Mediatek.
