In August, Mi Black Shark gaming phone remains on top once again with an average Antutu score of 289,415. The device leads the pack with its Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 8GB of RAM, and a liquid cooling system that helps it avoid overheating and perform better than other smartphones with similar specs.
vivo NEX S comes in as close second with an average Antutu score of 288,076. Although this device shares the same Snapdragon 845 processor and 8GB of RAM with Mi Black Shark, its cooling design is not as powerful as Mi Black Shark, therefore it doesn’t perform as well as the latter.
The third spot is taken by OPPO Find X which gets an average Antutu score of 286293. Since this device is also running on Snapdragon 845 processor with 8GB of RAM, its performance is only marginally lower than Mi Black Shark and vivo NEX S.
The rest of the list are as follows: the Snapdragon 845-powered Galaxy Note 9, Xiaomi Mi 8, Asus ZenFone 5Z, Xiaomi Mi POCOPHONE F1, Xiaomi Mi MIX 2s, the Snapdragon 845-powered Galaxy S9+ and Snapdragon 845-powered Galaxy S9.
In general, this month’s top ten rankings are dominated by smartphones powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 processor once again. This situation is not likely to change in the coming two months until Huawei Mate 20 series powered by Kirin 980 processor is released on October 16.
The above data reflects the changes of Android phone performance for August, 2018. For more information about the ranking list, please visit Antutu official website or download AnTuTu Benchmark and check in the menu of “Ranking”.
