Antutu: top 10 most powerful Android smartphones for November 2019


Antutu has just posted its monthly ranking of the most powerful Android smartphones. As it was already the case last month, the site offers a ranking reserved for premium smartphones and another dedicated to mid-range phones. Here is the list of TOP 10 Android smartphones.

Top 10 most powerful premium Android smartphones in November 2019

On the high end, it is the Asus gaming smartphone, the ROG Phone 2, with Snapdragon 855+ and 8 GB RAM, which is again at the top of the list. It is followed by OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro with Snapdragon 855+ and 8 GB of RAM for both variants.

  • Asus ROG Phone 2
  • OnePlus 7T
  • OnePlus 7T Pro
  • Realme X2 Pro
  • OnePlus 7 Pro
  • OnePlus 7
  • Redmi K20 Pro Premium Edition
  • Asus Zenfone 6
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ (Snapdragon, 855)
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G (Exynos 9825)

Note the arrival of Galaxy Note 10+ from Samsung. The Snapdragon 855 variant even surpasses the Exynos 9825 variant, relegated to the last place. Moreover, the ranking is largely dominated by Qualcomm’s SoC.

Top 10 most powerful mid-range Android smartphones in November 2019

On the mid-range, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro takes the first place with its SoC Helio G90 T coupled to 8 GB of RAM. Then we have the Oppo Reno 2 (Snapdragon 730 and 8 GB of RAM) and the Xiaomi Mi 9T (Snapdragon 730 and 6GB).

  • Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro
  • Oppo Reno 2
  • Xiaomi Mi 9T
  • Samsung Galaxy A80
  • Xiaomi Mi 9 SE
  • Realme XT
  • Realme Q
  • Xiaomi Mi 9 Lite
  • Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro
  • VSmart Live

The AnTuTu team notes that a powerful chipset and UFS storage is a must for a phone to enter the Top 10. A dual-channel UFS noticeably improves a phone’s chances for a good score.

On this segment, we notice the presence of the Galaxy A80 (Snapdragon 730 and 8GB) and the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro launched in early 2019 (Snapdragon 675 and 6GB of RAM). What do you think of this ranking? We are waiting for your opinion in the comments.

    Notice how they completely ignored Huawei devices even though the manufacturer is the world’s second biggest phone maker and instead mentioning unknown brands that we never heard in our life “vsmart”! The world is becoming fragmented.. starting from the release of Huawei’s own OS we’ll have to choose which camp we’ll be on with some apps that working here but not working there!

    Thanks to Mr. Clown of America!

      U know, with so much data mining that Google does and my never ending quest to stop that by going Google free which isn’t easy on an android phone lol, I can’t help thinking that for like minded pple, the prospect of an Android phone with absolutely no Google products in sight is a serious proposition for those who don’t like the invasion of privacy but also don’t want to jump ship totally to Apple phones. I was one of those awful iPhone snobs for years lol, looking down on the likes of Samsung, but I finally woke up to the constant rip off by Apple who ship £1,000+ phones with a paltry 8 watt charger taking 3nhalf hrs to charge a phone when my NOTE 10 plus 5g shipped with a 25 watt charger in the box! I don’t even need the 45 watt charger Samsung offers when I get from 20 to 60% charge in just 20 minutes!

      It should be noted that “world’s biggest manufacturer” (aka popularity) doesn’t equate to automatically worthy of being included amongst the “MOST POWERFUL”.
      ….
      The Toyota Corolla was the most popular car worldwide in 2019.
      But that doesn’t mean Toyota is automatically a SUPERCAR manufacturer. :-/
      (Let alone amongst the manufacturers creating the MOST POWERFUL cars.)

      Also, Re: “instead mentioning unknown brands that we never heard in our life ‘vsmart’!”
      It behooves one to keep in mind that the limits to one’s PERSONAL knowledge, doesn’t define the limits to everyone else’s knowledge. (That’s a shortfall for which Mr. Clown fails, as well.)
      That is to say, if someone is only familiar with what is popular amongst laymen, they may not be familiar with the bleeding edge of new trailblazers in specialized fields (such as performance).
      To continue the metaphor… someone who is a fan of Corollas because they’re the most popular, isn’t likely to be concerned about (or necessarily even aware of) Koenigsegg Automotive, or other manufacturers of specialized hardware (which isn’t necessarily popular, due to not being the middle of the use-case bell curve for the public as a whole).

    I’m surprised to see phones I’ve never even heard of with just 6gb of Ram way above Samsungs pinnacle flagship Note 10+5g with a whopping 12gbs of Ram only just make the list at 9 & 10 respectively! I’d love to know how the power is measured by Antutu to arrive at their decisions for the most powerful phones! This article only mentions the amount of Ram as a reason for their rating & not including the Gaming phone at the top, I don’t understand how a phone powered by 6gb Ram can be deemed more powerful than one with a whopping 112 gbs! I know its not only down to Ram but CPU, software etc so more info would be welcome. Either way, I love my NOTE 10 plus 5g & wouldn’t dream of swapping it, not even for the 90hz refresh rate Oneplus lol!….. Side note…,I’ve seen IceUniverse leaks on Samsungs S11 to be released in the new year showing an incredible 120hz refresh rate & a huge 5,000 milliamp battery to run that refresh rate along with a jaw dropping 108 mp camera! Now that’s what u call powerful Antutu! 🙄😜😊

    These Atutu numbers have no contribution in day to day usage of phones. Nobody uses mobile phone to render CAD designs. Just a gimmick. Still note 10+ Is the best ever mobile phone out there. Whether its android or any Cow put there
