The Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro with — you guessed it, Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 — took the third and fourth spots, respectively, followed by the Samsung Galaxy S23 Plus and Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra. The latter two premium Android smartphones likewise rely on Qualcomm’s flagship mobile platform, but with a bit of twist: The chip has been optimized to run on a higher prime clock speed along with a slightly overclocked GPU. The same SoC powers the regular version of the Galaxy S23, which came in eighth place.

The last Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 model that made it to the Antutu list included the OnePlus 11 at No. 9. Another device based on Snapdragon — Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1, specifically — came in 10th with a 1,342,785 monthly average benchmark score. We’re referring to the Lenovo Legion Y70. Only the Redmi K60 Ultra, at No. 7, doesn’t use Qualcomm; it’s equipped with a MediaTek Dimensity 9200 Plus chipset.
