Antutu Benchmark’s lists of 10 best-performing Android phones for March and April were almost the same. But the newly released one? With the availability of new handsets came a different set of players.
Granted, Samsung devices still dominated it, with four of the Korean tech giant’s Galaxy models — all the four variants of the Samsung Galaxy S9 series — making it to the May list. Then again, we have a new No. 1 in the Xiaomi Black Shark. The gaming smartphone got an average benchmark score of 268,994.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 835-powered OnePlus 5T and OnePlus 5 may be out, but they were replaced by their Snapdragon 845-based successor, the OnePlus 6. Three other new entries are the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact and Xperia XZ2 and the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S. All of them went on sale in April.
A lone Huawei device was included in the tail end of the ranking. 2017’s Huawei Mate 10 Pro landed 10th place, six spots down from its April standing.
The biggest winner here is Qualcomm, as seven of the phones listed here all use its flagship Snapdragon 845 processor. Check out Antutu’s complete ranking below:
- Xiaomi Black Shark: 268,994
- OnePlus 6: 267,511
- Samsung Galaxy S9+ (Qualcomm Snapdragon 845): 265,132
- Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact: 263,991
- Samsung Galaxy S9 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 845): 263,701
- Sony Xperia XZ2: 261,451
- Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S: 259,940
- Samsung Galaxy S9+ (Samsung Exynos 9810): 248,538
- Samsung Galaxy S9 (Samsung Exynos 9810): 246,502
- Huawei Mate 10 Pro: 212,714
Of the 10, four mobiles are not available in the Philippines. We’re talking about the Xiaomi Black Shark, the Qualcomm-powered S9 and its Plus version, and the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact.
We’re still waiting for a list that includes Apple iPhones. Unfortunately, as we said the last time, version 7 of Antutu for iOS was just released end-April. We’ll have to give Antutu a bit more time to post an overall ranking.
As we’ve always pointed out, the scores are just synthetic, but they still give you an idea of how smartphones perform.
