But Benchmark Scores Aren’t Everything

AnTuTu benchmark scores give you a good idea of how powerful the hardware is inside. But it’s just one of the many metrics that you should consider when purchasing a phone. Alongside a high score, a well-performing phone should also perform well in day-to-day tasks. That includes running regular apps smoothly, taking good photos, and managing calls.

In addition, you should also see if the battery life of the smartphone is reliable or not. A phone can be first in AnTuTu’s flagship ranking, but it may not even last for three hours. Among other important aspects to consider are build quality, display, speakers, and price point. But, yes, AnTuTu’s performance score does stand as a good starting point to find your next phone. So, don’t entirely neglect it.
