Which devices made it to Antutu’s latest global rankings of best-performing Android phones?

Thankfully, the wait is over. The benchmark platform has already published the midrange and flagship models that had the highest scores in February. We see a familiar chart-topper in the mid-end space, but the premium category had a new face.

Top 10: Midrange Android smartphones

Just like in the past five months, the Kirin 985-powered Honor 30 5G once again ruled the midrange Android segment with an average benchmark score of 404,202 points. In the absence of new international releases in this price range, Antutu expects the Honor phone to be No. 1 in March as well.

And same as in January, another Kirin 985 unit, the Huawei Nova 7 5G, landed second place. The Huawei Nova 7i with Kirin 810 climbed from eighth to seventh spot.

MediaTek had the most number of entries, though, with five models using Dimensity and Helio chipsets. We’re talking about the Redmi 10X 5G, Realme 7 5G, Realme 7, Redmi Note 8 Pro, and Realme 6. The rest — the Xiaomi Mi 10T Lite 5G and Redmi K30 5G — are all powered by Qualcomm processors.

It’s a different case for the premium category; Qualcomm dominated the space with six entries on the top 10 list. The Xiaomi Mi 11 had to settle for second place, but it remained strong with an average rating of 708,990 points. Crowned the new king of flagships last month was the Vivo iQOO 7. The Snapdragon 888 variant of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G took the third spot.

Other Snapdragon devices that made it to the rankings were the ASUS ROG Phone 3, OPPO Find X2 Pro, and OnePlus 8 Pro.

The Huawei Mate 40 Pro with Kirin 9000 scored high enough to become the fourth-placer with its 654,616 points. The other three all have Samsung Exynos chipsets inside.
