Not too long ago, since the last top-10 phones by Antutu in November 2021, many new smartphones have come out. So they have put out another list of the most powerful Android smartphones as of December 2021 and this time we have the phones launched in November till 1st of December 2021. It’s still 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 December 2021.
This list is as always 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!
The data was collected for a period from November 1 to December 1, 2021, and the results in the ranking list were the average scores but not the highest ones.
This time the Top 3 phones are still running on Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, which was the latest chipset that Qualcomm had to offer when these phones got launched. It is interesting to note that there is also a phone using the 888+.
This time we see that the results have not changed much and there is Nubia Red Magic 6 at number 1 with 860559 points. The phone in second place is the ROG Phone 5s Pro with a score of 838937 points. Closely following it up is yet another gaming phone, the little brother, the ROG phone 5 with 823213 points.
It is really amusing to see how Snapdragon 888 paired with 16GB RAM is still more powerful than the Snapdragon 888+ paired with 18GB RAM. Sometimes optimization is the key in these phones.
In Short, the top three phones are;
- Red Magic 6 with a score of 860559 points
- ROG Phone 5s Pro with a score of 838937 points
- ROG phone 5 with a score of 823213 points
It is nice to see gaming smartphones stay at the top as their whole thing is being the strongest in terms of performance.
The rest of the phones include the Realme GT with an average score of 815928. iQOO 7 with an average score of 815414. Motorola Moto G200 5G with an average score of 804693. OnePlus 9 Pro with an average score of 797839. Sony Xperia 1 III 5G with an average score of 795952. OnePlus 9 with an average score of 787905. And finally the Mi 11i with an average score of 779736.

The above quote will always be relatable when looking at the midrange scores. It is amazing to note how every time there is another midrange smartphone that breaks the record of the previous one. The scores are even getting closer to the last places of flagships. However,
In the first place, we see the Realme GT Master Edition with the Snapdragon 778G and getting 538416 points. Closely following behind we see the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite with a score of 524779 points. And finally, in third place, there is the Mi 11 Lite 5G NE with 508631 points.
Once again, we see Snapdragon taking the top three. MediaTek will definitely have to up their game to even get close.
In Short, the top three phones are;
- Realme GT Master Edition with a score of 538416 points.
- Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite with a score of 524779 points.
- Mi 11 Lite 5G NE with a score of 508631 points.
