Antutu Benchmark is one of the most popular mobile benchmarking tools out there. It provides aggregated numbers for the CPU, GPU, UX, RAM, and storage. With it, users are given an idea of how phones rank against each other when it comes to synthetic benchmarks. But do take note that this benchmarking tool doesn’t reflect real-world usage.
With that said, Antutu recently released its Top 10 best performing android phones in March 2019. At that time, both the Huawei P30 and Samsung Galaxy S10 series were released. Could we possibly see a new winner?
- Score: all the scores are averaged, not highest score per model (actual running results may fluctuate, which is a normal phenomenon).
- Period of data collection: March 1, 2019 to March 31, 2019.
- Data amount: at least 1000 units per model.
- Data source: Antutu Benchmark V7
