So, beyond the top spots, AnTuTu’s lists include numerous other noteworthy performers across various price segments. Users can explore these rankings to compare specific models based on their individual needs and priorities.

In conclusion, AnTuTu’s January benchmarks paint an interesting picture of the Android smartphone landscape. While Dimensity chipsets make a strong showing, particularly in the mid-range, the competition remains fierce.
