Antutu Benchmark’s latest global rankings of the best-performing flagship and midrange Android phones have more of the same players as in the past couple of months.
But in the premium category, November saw the rise of a Huawei device to the top, ushering in the entrance of a Kirin chipset as the No. 1 high-end chip… for now. Let’s break down each category below.
Top 10: Flagship Android smartphones
The Huawei Mate 40 Pro, which is already available in the Philippines, turned out to be the best-performing premium Android smartphone last month. It notched an average benchmark score of 661,059, courtesy of Kirin 9000. The chipset is fabricated on a 5nm process and features four Cortex-A77 cores, one of which is clocked at an industry-leading 3.13GHz. The graphics chip is a Mali-G78 with 24 cores, which is the fastest configuration possible.
The rest of the handsets on Antutu’s top 10 list are powered by either a Snapdragon 865 Plus or a Snapdragon 865, showing once again just how formidable chipmaker Qualcomm is in the flagship space.
New entrants included the Snapdragon 865-based OnePlus 8T and Black Shark 3. Out from the rankings were the OnePlus 8, Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G, and POCO F2 Pro — all packing Snapdragon 865 processors, too. Another interesting thing to note: Only the Vivo iQOO Neo 3 has not been launched in the Philippines.
Top 10: Midrange Android smartphones
Move along; there’s nothing interesting to see here if you’re looking for something new.
You read that right. The same phones that topped the Antutu charts in October all kept their spots in November, from first-placer Honor 30 with Kirin 985 5G to 10th-placer POCO X3 NFC with Snapdragon 732G.
Four Qualcomm, three HiSilicon, and three MediaTek chipsets figured in the recently published rankings. And of the 10 devices, it’s only the Redmi K30 5G that has not been released in the Philippines.
