Leading the AnTuTu rating of the most productive Android smartphones in August, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra lost this title in September, dropping immediately to third in the list. The iQOO 5 Pro from Vivo was recognized as the new king of performance, and its more affordable version iQOO 5 took the second line of the rating.
It comes as no surprise that the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra with Snapdragon 865 processor and 16GB of RAM in August was the fastest Android smartphone on the market. The average result of the device was 648 624 points. However, the glory of the Mi 10 Ultra was short-lived.
Smartphones of the iQOO 5 series from Vivo, which is one of the divisions of BBK Electronics (it also owns OnePlus, Realme and other manufacturers), also use the Snapdragon 865 processor as a basis. At the same time, the iQOO 5 and iQOO 5 Pro have 12 GB of RAM against 16 GB for the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra. Apparently, Vivo has optimized the Snapdragon 865 chipset much better, since its frequency is the same in all cases. The average result for the iQOO 5 Pro model is 663,752 points, and for the regular version of the iQOO 5 – 662,165 points.
An equally interesting fact is that the leaders of the list based on Snapdragon 865 have bypassed models built on the more recent and theoretically more productive Snapdragon 865 Plus chipset. We are talking about such models as ASUS Zenfone 7 Pro and ROG Phone 3, which took only the fifth and sixth places in the AnTuTu rating. Again, this is most likely due to insufficient chipset optimization by the device manufacturer.
It should also be added that all the devices presented in the September ranking of the fastest Android smartphones are based on Snapdragon 865 and 865 Plus processors. It seems that this picture will remain at least until the end of the year. In December, the announcement of the new Snapdragon 875 chipset should be expected, but Samsung is preparing a response for it in the form of the Exynos 2100 chipset.
