Both Samsung and Huawei have been coming up with really impressive devices recently. They have great designs, stunning displays, killer cameras, and fast performance.
A device’s processing prowess is one of deciding factors for every consumer. That’s the reason why we have company’s like AnTuTu to help us gauge how does a certain device actually perform in terms of daily and demanding tasks.
The company just released their list of AnTuTu top 10 best performing Android phones for March 2018. In this list, we have a statistical view of the best-performing Android smartphones today.
The list is dominated by three Samsung flagship smartphones. Leading the pack is the Galaxy S9+ (G965U) which scored 264,769. This variant is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, probably the best mobile chipset right now.
The Galaxy S9+ is followed by another Galaxy S9+ model. This time it is the G965F model, which sports Samsung’s own Exynos 9810 processor — the same chipset found on the Galaxy S9. They scored 248,251 and 246,485, respectively.
It looks like the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro didn’t make the cut. Anyway, we are still seeing two Huawei devices here — three if you add the Honor V10, which is a sub-brand from Huawei.
The Huawei Mate 10 Pro took the 4th spot with its score of 213,115, while the Huawei Mate 10 is at the 7th seat with its average score of 211,265. Both are running on Huawei’s own Kirin 970 processors.
The Mate 10 was overtaken by the Honor V10 and OnePlus 5T, which is at the 5th and 6th spot, respectively.
The last three seats are occupied by the OnePlus 5, Nokia 8, and the Google Pixel 2 — in that specific order. All these three, including the OnePlus 5T, are powered by Snapdragon 835, Qualcomm’s top of the line chipset last year.
But as more and more smartphones get the newer Snapdraong 845 processor — we expect these smartphones to fall out of this list in the next couple of months.
To wrap it up, it is safe to assume that 2018 will be lead by Snapdragon 845-equipped smartphones. However, it cannot easily dominate the market as both Samsung’s Exynos 9810 and Huawei’s Kirin 970 chipsets are showing that they are worthy competitors. In fact, a mysterious Huawei smartphone recently got over 350,000 in AnTuTu.
