Best performance flagship smartphones on Antutu Benchmark
Benchmark means running a set of programs in a resource-hungry way and pushing the device into its limits. This is done to get an idea of the device’s performance. Benchmarks provide a method of comparing the performance of various systems across different chips/system architecture. Benchmarking a CPU or GPU is not something new. Nowadays you can even benchmark software that may be a browser or even a database management system (DBMS). While in this article we are going to talk about benchmarking of mobile phones basically based on ARM chips.
In the Smartphone and Tablet market, the most popular benchmarking app is the Antutu benchmark. This app is even used by OEMs to showcase their devices’ full potential during device launches and compare their device with the competition in the market. Many times OEMs are caught cheating and making some tweaks in the device in order to achieve a higher Antutu score.
Antutu benchmark is an app that runs sets of programs in your device which test the horsepower of your CPU, GPU, MEMORY, etc. After testing all the aspects along with the User experience (UX), Antutu provides you with an overall score and also scores in a particular department. You can compare the score of your device with the other devices.
To download the app in your iOS devices running ios v9 or above via the Apple App Store and for Android you need to use Antutu website to download the app, as it was recently removed due to some ad showing policy and many also believed it was removed because of its association with Cheetah Mobile (china based software company). Among all the users’ database, antutu takes an average score for a particular device and uploads it into its website every month. According to those scores here are the Top 10 Mobile devices. The list includes Android and iOS devices.
Antutu scores published on the official website are the average score of the device. It doesn’t show the peak score and also does not include devices yet to be launched. The actual real-life performance of the device might vary from one device to another.
