[News] AnTuTu Benchmark August 2020: MediaTek and HiSilicon powered devices lead in mid-range segment

Hello MIUI'ers,

AnTuTu is a well-known benchmarking platform for smartphones other than Geekbench. It releases monthly reports on top-performing devices similar to Master Lu, which is another popular benchmarking platform in China. The reports for August 2020 are now out from both the companies. Yesterday, we had a look at the performance and UI fluency lists released by the latter. Today, let’s dig into the former’s list of top 10 high-end and mid-range smartphones.

High-end Smartphones

Just like on Master Lu, Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra and IQOO 5 (non-Pro) lead the AnTuTu Benchmark’s August 2020 list of top-performing high-end smartphones despite them being powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 865. Whereas, the Asus ROG Phone 3 equipped with Snapdragon 865+ comes only at third position.

AnTuTu explains that they test the top variant of each phone. The scores mentioned in their database are the average of multiple tests performed on these devices. Hence, they tested the 16GB LPDDR5 RAM + 512GB UFS 3.1 storage variant of Mi 10 Ultra compared to 12GB + 256GB configuration of iQOO 5 and ROG Phone 3.

But still, the ROG Phone’s points are much lower than the other two as you can see from the list. The company says that ASUS has not optimized its software well-enough for the new 3.1GHz Snapdragon 865+.

Interestingly, iQOO 5 Pro cannot be seen in the top 10 list. Even on Master Lu, it lagged behind though the regular and Pro variant features same chipset and internals except for different camera setup, battery, and charging speed.

Also, Samsung’s most powerful smartphones of 2020 – Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and Galaxy Note 20 don’t make the list just like Oneplus 8 and 8 Pro.

Mid-range Smartphones

Talking about mid-range smartphones, the MediaTek Dimensity 820-powered Redmi 10X and Redmi 10X Pro top the list, followed by Honor 30, Huawei nova 7 and 7 Pro powered by HiSilicon Kirin 980. Again, we see the same trend. The regular models of the same phone perform better than the Pro variant.

Other phones in this list include Kirin 820 equipped Honor X10,30S and Huawei Nova SE. It is interesting to see MediaTek leading the list in the mid-range segment, followed by HUAWEI and HONOR handsets powered by Kirin.

On the other hand, though Qualcomm chips perform better in the high-end segment, the mid-range Snapdragon 768G and Snapdragon 7655-powered Redmi K30 5G Racing Edition and  OPPO Reno 4 5G pale in comparison with phones featuring chipsets from MediaTek and HiSilicon in this segment.
