Every month AnTuTu always releases a list of the 10 best performing smartphones. In March 2019, AnTuTu placed the Xiaomi Mi 9 Explorer as the new leader, who took the championship crown last month, the Xiaomi Mi 9.
Looking at the list, 9 out of 10 smartphones have chipsets that are built using manufacturing technology that is smaller than 10 nanometers. Only the Nubia Red Magic Mars is still running with Snapdragon 845, the flagship Qualcomm chipset that was popular last year.
Noted, in the top position there is the Xiaomi Mi 9 Explorer with an AnTuTu score reaching 372,072 points. While in the second and third positions are occupied by Xiaomi Mi 9 and Vivo iQOO Monster, each of which has a score of 371,878 points and 365,430 points.
For you guys to know, Vivo iQOO Monster is indeed supported by tantalizing specifications, namely 12 GB RAM and 256 GB internal storage. While the ordinary Vivo iQOO is in sixth position with a score of 356,510 points only reinforced by 8 GB RAM.
Meanwhile, in the fourth and fifth position there are Samsung Galaxy S10 + and Galaxy S10. Yes! These two smartphones are flanked by Vivo iQOO Monster and Vivo iQOO. The Galaxy S10 + won the AnTuTu score of 359,987 points, while the Galaxy S10 scored 359,217 points.
Unfortunately not revealed clearly, whether the Galaxy S10 + and Galaxy S10 tested this time is based on Snapdragon 855 or Exynos 9820. On the other hand, AnTuTu also revealed the performance of the Galaxy S10 which was tested “much higher” than the Galaxy S9 which slid last year.
This test also proves that Samsung’s flagship which slid in early 2019 is going well. Of course, what is equally interesting to look forward to is the performance of other flagship smartphones, such as Huawei P30, OPPO Reno and Meizu 16s.
But one thing that is quite interesting, the AnTuTu test in March 2019 placed Huawei Mate 20 X in the position of caretaker. The score was only 303,174 points, losing to Lenovo Z5 Pro GT (348,591), Mars Red Nubia (315,200) and Honor V20 (306,306).
