The processor is the same in both the smartphones and their is no difference between SD 730 and SD 730G processor. But as there is a price difference of Rs. 2500 between the 8GB|128GB variants of both the smartphones, the user can choose to buy Galaxy A71 if his budget allows him to. Galaxy M51 is also available at Rs 24,999 for the 6GB|128GB variant in which the user gets all the features except a bit more RAM.
