Every month, the developer of the AnTuTu benchmarking application releases a list of the top most powerful smartphones in the world.
Now that we have smartphones equipped with Snapdragon 855 on the market, the 7nm chipset fomr Qualcomm, models based on last year’s chipset – Snapdragon 845 – as well as Huawei smartphones with Kirin 980 are starting to be left behind in what performance is concerned.
In February, the smartphone with the best AnTuTu scores was Xiaomi Mi 9, a smartphone that has a price tag of only $450.
Here are the most powerful Android smartphones on the market right now but keep in mind that the list will surely change once the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10e will arrive in stores in later this month:
- Xiaomi Mi 9 – 371.849 points
- Lenovo Z5 Pro GT – 353.469 points
- ZTE nubia Red Magic Mars – 320.763 points
- Huawei Mate 20 – 306.984 points
- Huawei V20 (View 20) – 306.726 points
- Huawei Mate 20 X – 304.325 points
- Honor Magic 2 – 301.442 points
- ASUS ROG Phone – 297.953 points
- Xiaomi Black Shark Helo – 297.473 points
- Xiaomi Mi 8 Transparent Edition – 296.953 points
We now have two smartphone powered by Snapdragon 855 on the first two places and this is proof that the new chipset is most advanced that the previous model. The first four places go to Huawei devices all being powered by the 7nm Kirin 980 chipset which is built by Huawei.
The list has been done using data collected during february 1 – february 28 through the AnTuTu application and reach represents an average of the respective models and not absolute records. In the previous months there were Huawei Mate 20 Pro users who managed to get AnTuTu scores bigger than 330,000 but this month the phone is not even included in the list most likely because there weren’t many benchmarking tests done.
