Six Out Of the Top 10 Smartphones For May 2016 Are From China

by Joe 12

Chinese smartphones have come a long way in the past couple of years. This year, we saw at least three new smartphones from China featuring a whopping 6GB of RAM on board along with other powerful specs. And it’s no surprise that these smartphones along with other 4GB RAM phones powered by Snapdragon 820 chip dominate the top 10 smartphone list for the month of May released by AnTuTu.

On top lies the Vivo XPlay Lite, which was the first 6GB RAM smartphone in the market. The phone managed to top the list with a score of 138,706 points. Next up lies the Le Max 2 with 138K points and then the ZUK Z2 Pro scoring 136,853 points on average. Like mentioned above, these three phones feature 6GB of RAM on board with the mighty Snapdragon 820 chip. The next two phones, namely the Xiaomi Mi5 and the Galaxy S7 Edge also score well, which isn’t surprising given that they have the same Snapdragon 820 chip inside but with 4GB of RAM. We don’t see much difference in the performance of 6GB and 4GB RAM phones here, mainly because, AnTuTu gives more importance to the CPU and GPU, rather than RAM.

Then, there are the two iPhone models, the iPhone 6S and iPhone SE, both featuring Apple’s top-end A9 chips. Even they manage to score above 130K on the benchmark test, showing the power capability of the chip inside. The last three in the list are LG G5 with Snapdragon 820, Meizu Pro 6 with Helio X25 chip (overclocked Helio X20) and finally, Honor V8 with Kirin 955m. Given that Huawei’s device has made it to the list, it shows that Kirin chipsets have finally improved their performance in comparison to its competition.

    People must revise their thinking about the china phones. Most of them are more or less sceptical when you tell them you have a China phone. In one way or another all the stuff is made in China, so people must open their eyes.

    Vendors normally know how to cheat antutu benchmark.
    Samsung were famous for their cheat.

    Don’t depend too much on antutu scores.

      Samsung, HTC and Huawei have all admitted to cheating Antutu.

    gpu on helio and kirin lets them down a bit…. which they need to upgrade.
    they do need to have the best gpu on their arsenal when they are competing with SD which has Adreno

    • balcobomber25

      For the majority of people that use smartphones they have no clue what GPU us even in their phones let alone every coming close to taking full advantage of it.

      • Faisal Shaharyar

        only the SD 80x series did well taking full advantage of gpu.
        i would still consider this over SD810

        • balcobomber25

          Most consumers though don’t take full advantage of their GPU. For people that play Candy Crush, browse FB/Instagram and listen to Spotify they have no need for a Adreno 530.

          • Faisal Shaharyar

            i was talking about the 801 with adreno 330

  • balcobomber25

    Antutu tells you very little about real world performance. It is for bragging rights and not much else. There are phones that score 100,000 that are outperformed by phones that score 60,000. There are phones that score exactly the same but have drastically different performance. And then there is the fact that with each new version of Antutu the scores increase meaning all older results are now even more worthless.
