After quite a wait, Antutu has finally released the latest rankings of best-performing Android phones — the first results from version 9 of the benchmarking platform — albeit for devices released in China.
We see familiar smartphones on the lists, domineered by the same flagship and mid-tier units that topped the charts in March.
Top 10: Flagship Android smartphones
This is a category that Qualcomm has dominated time and again, and April was not an exception. Its top-end Snapdragon 888 chip figured prominently in the latest rankings, with all premium handsets that got into the top 10 using the said SoC. Yes, all. Our only issue with it, as we shared before, is that it can quickly warm up when taking pictures or videos, for one.
Just like in March, Xiaomi‘s Black Shark 4 Pro easily beat the competition last month with a high average Antutu benchmark score of 860,467. The OPPO Find X3 Pro, despite not being a gaming phone, flexed its muscles once again and managed to trump the RedMagic 6 Pro.
Top 10: Midrange Android smartphones
The midrange is where Qualcomm doesn’t lord it over its competitors. Last month’s rankings for this category saw Huawei‘s Kirin as the dominant chip, with six phones powered by either the Kirin 985 or the Kirin 820, led by the Huawei Nova 8 Pro in third place.
However, the chart-topper was the Redmi 10X 5G, which uses a Dimensity 820 from Taiwan’s MediaTek, currently the No. 1 chipmaker worldwide. Three models has Snapdragon processors inside, namely the Vivo iQOO Z3, Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G, and OPPO Reno 5 5G.
