AnTuTu published two Top 10 charts listing the best performing phones in the flagship and mid-range segments. These charts are based on data collected between November 1 and November 30.
Still, this is a clear case of Snapdragon dominance, the first non-Qualcomm chipset is the Exynos 9825 powering the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G, which came in at #10.
The mid-range segment is ruled by Redmi Note 8 Pro, a Helio G90T based phone. The Oppo Reno2 edges out the Xiaomi Mi 9T and Samsung Galaxy A80 thanks to a slightly faster GPU – the Reno2 uses the Snapdragon 730G chipset while the other two have the non-G version.
Below that it’s all Snapdragons, though dropping to the older 710/712 chips and even the 675 in the last two spots of the Top 10 chart.
The AnTuTu team notes that a powerful chipset and UFS storage is a must for a phone to enter the Top 10. A dual-channel UFS noticeably improves a phone’s chances for a good score.
Again, these charts are based on November data. However, there have been some interesting launches recently so expect a big shakeup in the December edition.
