Another month, another set of best-performing Android smartphones on Antutu. Days after the benchmark site released the list for China for June 2018, it now reveals the global ranking. And the device that came out on top last month was the same as the one in May.
The Xiaomi-backed Black Shark gaming phone, launched in April, maintained its pole position. It got an average benchmark score of 288,222.
Two other Xiaomi models made it to the list. The just-released Mi 8, which is the closest thing we have to an Apple iPhone X running Android, landed in third place. The Mi MIX 2S dropped from seventh in May to eighth in June.
The OnePlus 6 also defended its standing. It scored 284,642, a few points away from toppling the Black Shark.
Samsung, which used to dominate the ranking on Antutu, only had two entries last month — the Snapdragon 845-powered Samsung Galaxy S9 and its Plus variant. The versions using the Korean manufacturer’s Exynos processor were nowhere to be found.
Other smartphones that figured on the top 10 list of best-performing Android smartphones include the ASUS ZenFone 5Z, the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact and Xperia XZ2, and the LG G7 ThinQ.
If you look at the devices below, you’d notice that all of them are powered by Qualcomm’s most premium chipset:
- Xiaomi Black Shark: 288,222
- OnePlus 6: 284,642
- Xiaomi Mi 8: 271,866
- ASUS ZenFone 5Z: 267,095
- Samsung Galaxy S9+ (Qualcomm Snapdragon 845): 264,399
- Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact: 263,341
- Samsung Galaxy S9 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 845): 263,333
- Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S: 260,131
- Sony Xperia XZ2: 257,392
- LG G7 ThinQ: 255,810
Of the 10, only five of them are officially available in the Philippines. We’re talking about the OnePlus 6, the ASUS ZenFone 5Z, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S (which is the cheapest Snapdragon 845 phone in the country), the Sony Xperia XZ2, and the LG G7 ThinQ.
As we’ve always pointed out, Antutu benchmark scores are synthetic, but they give you an idea of how smartphones perform.
