AnTuTu happens to be a benchmarking website which tests the hardware of smartphones and gives it a score after doing so. This website usually releases the Top 10 most powerful smartphones for each month, at the beginning of the following month and also the most popular smartphones at the end of each quarter. This time around, AnTuTu has released its top 10 list of smartphones with the highest AnTuTu scores for the month of November, and also a top 10 list of Android smartphones with the highest AnTuTu scores. If you would like to know which are the most powerful smartphones according to AnTuTu, read on.
The most powerful smartphone for the month of November happens to be the Apple iPhone 7 Plus, with a pretty high score of 172,664. In second place is the smaller sibling of the iPhone 7 Plus, the iPhone 7, which managed to score 170,124 through AnTuTu. While Apple may have taken home first and second place, Android dominates the rest of the list, starting off with the LeEco Le Pro 3, which scored 160,856, followed by the Xiaomi Mi 5S Plus with a score of 153,777. Fifth and sixth placing are snapped up by the Smartisan M1L and the Xiaomi Mi Note 2, each of them scoring 149,705 and 148,352 respectively. The new Huawei Mate 9 is at ninth place with a score of 146,942 and the device is followed by the smaller Xiaomi Mi 5S, which scored an average of 144,135. The last two spots contain the OnePlus 3 with a score of 140,288 and the Vivo Xplay5, which scored 138,706. There are two new additions in the list this month, the two smartphones being the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 and the Huawei Mate 9, both of which were released quite recently.
The Android listing is pretty similar, except there is an addition of two other smartphones at the bottom of the list, which are the LeEco Le Max 2 and the Nubia Z11. The LeEco Max 2 scored 138,026 and the Nubia Z11 scored 137,685. If you take a look at the listing, you will notice that the majority of the Android smartphones in it are powered by the Snapdragon 821 SoC. While benchmark scores may serve a purpose as a guideline as to how powerful a smartphone is, benchmark results don't really have to mean anything when it comes to real world performance.
