AnTuTu: what is the best performance smartphones in 2016?
AnTuTu publishes smartphone rankings with the best scores via its benchmarking tool during 2016. The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are well classified, as well as the OnePlus 3T.
The year 2016 had ambitious smartphones reflecting the art in the mobile industry, armed with increasingly powerful processors but also starting to offer additional functionalities to spread the multiplicity of uses of mobile devices.
While the first smartphones of the year 2017 begin to unveil, waiting the Barcelona MWC 2017 in February which will reveal many models with next generation processors (Snapdragon 835, Helio X30...). AnTuTu draws up its balance sheet last year by setting the rankings of the best performing smartphones on its benchmark tool.
It is the Apple iPhone 7 that obtained the best results with respective average scores of 181,000 and 172,000 points, for a quad-core configuration via the Apple A10 Fusion and associated with 2 to 3 GB of RAM.
These are the scores to beat in 2017 and it already seems that the SnapDragon 835 is able to easily exceed the 200,000 points but it will be necessary to wait for the measurements on finalized products to confirm it.
At iOS, the tablet iPad Pro 12.9 inches explodes the records with 194 838 points on AnTuTu.
On the Android side, the OnePlus 3T smartphone benefits from its configuration SnapDragon 821 / Full HD screen to occupy once again the ranking position, after OnePlus 3 throughout the first half of 2016. It obtained a score of 163,013 points.
Behind comes the LeEco LePro 3 (almost 160,000 points), then the Lenovo Moto Z with nearly 149,000 points. Note that the Top 10 in 2016, smartphones Galaxy S7 / S7 Edge are discarded in favor of Google Pixel / Pixel XL, especially since the Korean group did not have the time to propose its smartphone Galaxy Note 7. So it does not appear at all in the ranking... while being the world number one smartphone manufacturers.
The Top 10 Android smartphones also shows that Asian manufacturers are well present: The Xiaomi Mi 5S / 5S Plus and the Asus Zenfone 3 are in good place, as well as the ZTE Axon 7. No appearance on the other hand of HTC, Sony or LG Electronics in the annual ranking.
