Global Best Performing Android Phones in July 2020: MediaTek Enters the List
The July of 2020 has passed and here comes August. It means that the battle for global mobile phone market share in the next half year is about to begin. One of the first flagship models to be released is Samsung’s Galaxy Note20 series. This series plays an important role in boosting Samsung’s reputation from this August to the next February. Starting this month, manufacturers will successively launch their new products for the next half year, leading to a new battle for market share.
Today, based on the backstage product statistics, Antutu has released the list of Global Best Performing Android Phones in July 2020. Now let’s have a look at the mobile phones that make it to the Top 10.
As before, we will release rankings of both flagship models and middle-range models at the same time. The rankings depend more on the SoC that a mobile phone has.
The statistics are collected from July 1 to July 31, 2020. The scores shown are average scores rather than the highest ones. For each model, over 1,000 items of product figures or statistics have been analyzed. The data are calculated based on Antutu Benchmark V8. In addition, for each model, if versions with different storage capacities make it to the Top 10, we list the one with the highest score.
1. Flagship Mobile Phones
The rankings of flagship mobile phones in July are little different from those in June. Some models just switch their places.
At the top of the list is still Find X2 Pro 12+512GB, OPPO’s flagship product. Its average benchmark score is 604,805, making it the only product with a score over 600,000 on the list.
It has been 5 months since Find X2 Pro was launched in early March. New products are unveiled almost everyday in the mobile phone market, so this model shows incredibly strong performance as it secures the first place after being released for 5 months.
The biggest highlight of Find X2 Pro is a screen of 3K resolution and 120Hz refresh rate, making it the best ever in overall quality. What’s more, empowered by the super powerful Snapdragon 865+LPDDR5+UFS 3.0 and OPPO’s years of experience in software correction, Find X2 Pro has long been among the best on the performance list.
The second place is still One Plus 8 Pro 12+256GB, scoring 598,169.
One Plus 8 Pro wins the second place since it shares much in common with OPPO Find X2 Pro. The original Android system and top-notch hardware configuration also ensure that the phone runs smoothly for a long time.
The third one is Redmi K30 Pro 8+128G, with the average benchmark score of 591,525. It is a Snapdragon 865 phone with a pop-up camera, which is not that common this year. As a result, its screen is complete, without any hole punched. But its refresh rate only reaches 60Hz and it weighs over 200g. Nonetheless, the price is friendly. You just need to think it through before buying it.
Products ranking the fourth to the tenth are respectively: Mi 10 Pro 8+256G (average score of 584,344), One Plus 8 8+128GB (average score of 576,514), Poco F2 Pro 8+256GB (average score of 572,854), Mi 10 8+256GB (average score of 566,566), Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G (990) 12+128G (average score of 515,781), Galaxy S20+ 5G (990) 12+128GB (average score of 514,325) and iQOO Z1 6+128GB (average score of 510,960).
iQOO Z1 enters the list for the first time. It is equipped with MediaTek’s flagship 5G SoC, Dimensity 1000+, one of its most excellent products. Though the phone ranks the tenth, it’s gratifying to find a MediaTek product among flagship models. This phone is also very affordable, costing as much as a middle-range product does, so it is very cost-effective.
2. Middle-range Mobile Phones
On the list of best performing middle-range phones, the top three remain the same as the last month. Each of their average benchmark scores doesn’t change much.
Redmi K30 5G 6+64GB, Mi’s 5G middle-range model, wins the first place with the average benchmark score of 315,219. Huawei’s new nova 7i 6+128GB still ranks the second, scoring 308,541 this month.
The third-place still goes to Redmi Note 8 Pro this month, with an average score of 291,237. The phone will have been launched for a whole year by August. Such strong performance for nearly a year owes a lot to MediaTek’s G90T chip that the device is equipped with.
Realme 6, the latest realme phone, has the same ranking as the last month, the fourth place. Realme 6 and the third-ranking Redmi Note 8 Pro are both equipped with MediaTek G90T processor. Realme 6 was launched this March yet maintains good performance, so it shows that even a new phone with MediaTek G90T will definitely function pretty well. Realme 6’s average benchmark score is 289,393, close to that of Redmi Note 8 Pro.
The next seven products are in the order: realme 6 Pro 8+128GB (average score of 284,955), Redmi Note 9 Pro 8+128GB (average score of 278,970), Redmi Note 9S 6+128GB (average score of 277,705), Mi Note 10 Lite 8+128GB (average score of 271,128), Mi Note 10 6+128GB (average score of 270,241) and Galaxy A71 6+128GB (average score of 264,739).
That’s all about the list of Global Best Performing Android Phones in July. Overall, except the newcomer iQOO Z1 which is equipped with MediaTek’s Dimensity 1000+, the rankings change little, and even the scores remain almost the same. We can see that both the market and the scores are stable, so let’s look forward to a more vigorous phone market after Samsung releases Galaxy Note20 in the second half of the year.
