Could anyone please tell which one of the below laptop is better?

Both are same price, same brand, the rest are all the same.

i7-7500U, 8GB DDR4, AMD Radeon R7 M440 4GB, 1TB HDD 5400
i5-7200U, 16GB DDR4, AMD Radeon R5 M430 4GB, 1TB HDD 5400

Thanks.

For games, the i7-7500u and Radeon R7 M440 is generally better. 8GB of RAM is generally fine for games and unless it is an ultrabook, you can typically upgrade RAM in a laptop. While the R7 M440 is a little better than the R5 M430, it is still rather weak since it is about equal to a nVidia 920m.

The R5 M430 is generally considered a bit less powerful than the Intel HD 620 graphics core in the i5-7200u / i7-7500u CPUs.

jaguarskx, thanks for your answer.
It is not for games, just basic use + photoshop.

Assuming the RAM cannot be upgraded and you are working with large image files, I would go with the laptop that has the i5-7200u and 16GB of RAM. If the laptops allows you to upgrade the RAM, then get the i7-7500u.
