Best Performing devices for August 2020
Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra and Vivo iQOO 5 top the AnTuTu’s August 2020 list of high-performance smartphones.
The ASUS ROG Phone 3, despite being equipped with the Snapdragon 865+, appears in the third position, even with its competitors above being equipped with regular Snapdragon 865.
Asus’ smartphone is the only one on the list with Snapdragon 865 Plus and still failed to secure it’s spot in the first and second place.
Also, some powerful Samsung smartphones from 2020, such as the Galaxy Note20 Ultra and Galaxy Note 20, do not appear on the list.
Best Performing Mid-Rangers
In the list of smartphones in the mid-range segment, we can see the Redmi 10X 5G on the lead, ahead of the Redmi 10X Pro 5G. Following is the Honor 30, Huawei nova 7 and Huawei nova 7 Pro.
Here we also see the regular models of the same phone perform better than the Pro variant.
It is worth mentioning that even with excellent positioning in the top lists Qualcomm’s chips do not gain much prominence among intermediaries. Much of the list is dominated by the Kirin 985 and Kirin 820 processor, giving space only to the first and second place to the Dimensity 820 and at the bottom of the rating to the Snapdragon 765G and 768G.
