While many people consider AnTuTu’s list of top-performing smartphones as “useless”, this ranking gives a sense of the relative performance of each device. In practical terms, a “powerful smartphone” really depends on the need of the user. However, let us look at AnTuTu’s best performing mid-range smartphones for March 2020.
According to the latest ranking, the Oppo Reno3 5G is the best performing phone with a score of 407,340. This is still a long way from the least (tenth position) performing flagship smartphone. In second place is the Vivo X30 5G with a score of 326,822. These smartphones come with MediaTek’s Dimensity 1000L and Samsung’s Exynos 980.
In the third position is the Redmi K30 5G which scores 324,717 while the fourth place is occupied by another Oppo phone, Reno3 Pro 5G which scores 320,314. The fifth to ninth position goes to Huawei phones – either from its Honor or nova brands. Honor 9X Pro, Huawei nova 6 SE, Honor 9X, Honor 20X, and Huawei nova 5i Pro scores 310531, 307522, 306077, 303363 and 300342 respectively. All these Huawei and Honor mid-range phones come with the Kirin 810 SoC.
In the tenth position, we have another Xiaomi phone from its Redmi sub-brand, Redmi Note 8 Pro. This smartphone uses the MediaTek Helio G90T and scores 289,257.
If you look at the list carefully, you will notice that the best performing mid-range smartphones are all 5G phones. This is really no surprise because 5G requires a top-performing chip to work properly. Unlike the flagship list which is dominated by Snapdragon 865 (in the absence of Huawei P40’s Kirin 990), the mid-range list contains a plethora of chips. MediaTek, Qualcomm, Samsung, and Huawei all feature on the list. Nevertheless, Kirin 810 phones dominate this list.
Furthermore, apart from the Redmi Note 8 Pro that comes with 6GB of RAM, all other phones in this list use 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. What do you think about AnTuTu’s list of the most powerful smartphones for March 2020? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below
