The team of the popular AnTuTu benchmark has published its monthly ranking of the most powerful flagship smartphones based on the Android operating system available in the Chinese market.
Top 10 most powerful flagship phones in February 2021
The February 2021 ranking for the Chinese market differs markedly from the January one. The first four places were taken by the latest models based on the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC.
In the first place, we see for the second month in a row the iQOO 7 with 726,939 points. The second position is occupied by Vivo X60 Pro + with 726 925. The inexpensive flagship Redmi K40 Pro, presented less than a week ago, immediately took the third place. It scored 718 434 points. But Xiaomi Mi 11 continues to fall. If in the December ranking it took first place, in January – the second, now we see it only in fourth place with 712 366 points.
In fifth place – Huawei Mate 40 Pro based on the proprietary Kirin 9000 SoC with 683 919 points, in sixth – another Snapdragon 888 flagship, Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G with 679,159 points.
The seventh-place was taken by the brand new Redmi K40 with Snapdragon 870 and 668 471 points. The remaining three places in the top 10 are occupied by smartphones based on last year’s SoC Snapdragon 865 – Oppo Reno5 Pro + (667 456), Redmi K30S Extreme Edition (666 043) and iQOO 5 (661 609).

Top 10 most powerful mid-range phones: Huawei Nova 8 first hit AnTuTu rating
The AnTuTu benchmark team has also published a ranking of mid-range Android smartphones for February 2021 for the Chinese market.
In February, we have a fresh listing – the AnTuTu rating for the first time included smartphones of the Huawei Nova 8 series, which went on sale at the very end of December.
The first two places continue to be held by the Redmi 10X 5G and Redmi 10X Pro 5G based on the MediaTek Dimensity 820, with 404,346 and 398,570 points. This is a real phenomenon – since the summer of 2020, Redmi 10X 5G and Redmi 10X Pro 5G have quite consistently occupied the first lines of the AnTuTu rating in the mid-range segment.
The third, fourth and fifth places in February belong to Vivo S7t with 395,082 points, Huawei Nova 7 Pro and Nova 7 based on Kirin 985 with 392,093 and 391,542 points.
The top ten is closed by Huawei Nova 8 Pro (390,039), Honor 30 (389 107), Huawei Nova 8 (388 568), Honor X10 (362 664) and Honor 30S (355 028).
The data were collected from February 1 to February 28, 2021. The table shows the average, not the highest results. For each model, the results of at least 1000 tests were used, and smartphones with fewer tests are not included in the rating.
