Many phones have launched since the last top-10 phones by Antutu so they have put out another list of the Top 10 Best Performing Android Phones and this time we have the phones of February 2021. It’s surprising how there are always some phones which break the barrier and come out on top even if they are using the same SoC. So here are Antutu Benchmarks for February 2021.
This list is divided into two groups, one is for the flagship phones while the other is for budget phones because you can’t leave any great phones out!
This time, the data was collected for a period from February 1 to February 28, 2021, and the results in the ranking list were the average scores but not the highest ones.
The list has changed quite a bit from last time as in the Top three phones we only get to see the Snapdragon 888. Exynos 2100 and Kirin 9000 are still just behind the 888 but it is amazing to see that the iQOO7 has managed to get on the top surpassing huge flagships like the S21 Ultra 5G and the Mi 11. Even though both or all top 3 phones have the same processor somewhere in the specification list the iQOO 7 pulls up.
The Huawei Mate 40 Pro is now knocked out of the top three while the S21 Ultra 5G with the Snapdragon 888 going in making the difference of about 25000 points.
The Asus ROG phone three is not even in the top three anymore after staying there for 3 months.
We see that the Snapdragon 888 variant of the S21 Ultra is way ahead of the Exynos 2100 by around 41,000 points, the Exynos is still slaking behind which is really bad. But still, we see the whole S21 lineup in the top 10 which is really impressive.
Following the Top 3 phones that are
1. iQOO7 with an average score of 727730
2. Mi 11 with an average score of 708990
3. Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G (888) with an average score of 680130
the rest of the 7 phones go as follows,
Huawei Mate40 Pro (average score: 654,616), Galaxy S21+ 5G (2100) (average score: 646,172), Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G (2100) (average score: 638,272), ROG Phone3 (average score: 630,089), OPPO Find X2 Pro (average score: 610,366), Galaxy S21 5G (2100) (average score: 601,031), and OnePlus 8 Pro (average score: 596,921).
The Mi 10T 5G has gone from the list after standing at 10th place for last month’s tests.
As the Flagships are being launched the mid-range phone market is also on fire, we see some great phones with an affordable price tag.
The top three here are
1. Honor 30 with an average score of 404202
2. Huawei Nova 7 with an average score of 400507
3. Redmi 10X 5G with an average score of 394315
The Honor 30 with the Kirin 985 has been leading the list for five consecutive months, with an average score of 404,202 this month, over 2,000 higher than that in January which means that the phone is being updated and optimized well.
The Huawei Nova 7 is in the number 2 spot for the last five months as well, while its score hasn’t changed much since the last month, this device has held up pretty well
The Redmi 10X 5G is also holding the third position pretty well for the past 2 months. While we see a Dimensity 820 custom made and produced by Media Tek, this chipset performs slightly better than the Mediatek 800 and the 800U processors in terms of their performance. Some New Vivo phones will also reportedly launch using this SoC.
Other than the top 3 here are the rest of the seven phones, realme 7 5G (average score: 331,259), Mi 10T Lite 5G (average score: 330,316,) Redmi K30 5G (average score: 324,060), HUAWEI nova 7i (average score: 312,098), realme 7 (average score: 297,672), Redmi Note 8 Pro (average score: 293,364), and realme 6 (average score: 290,194).
