In March 2021, we had many new smartphones from Nubia, ASUS, OPPO, Black Shark. As a result, the February TOP-5 of the most effective flagship smartphones in the AnTuTu test has almost completely changed. Among new devices, models managed to gain leadership Black Shark 4 Pro…
According to AnTuTu, these are the best smartphones of March 2021
AnTuTu immediately declares that it cannot insist on this sample’s complete correctness because the monthly test of the most efficient smartphones and their ranking was carried out in the AnTuTu V8 version. The statement said that this could be the last list to be drawn from the V8 tests, as the V9 version is already poised to take centre stage.
The account of devices in the list and statistics period are recorded from March 1 to March 31, 2021. Also, the memory layout option of all flagship devices is fixed as 12GB + 256GB. As mentioned above, Black Shark 4 Pro tops the list with a whopping 765,579 points…
We also have other new members who have entered the top five. These are models such as OPPO Find X3 Pro, RedMagic 6 Pro, ASUS ROG Phone 5 and Vivo X60 Pro +, which take the next 4 places with 742 078, 741 100, 729 300 and 726 216 points, respectively.
It is interesting to note that this time in the TOP 5 from the February 2021 listing hit only Vivo X60 Pro +… One way or another, the next 3 places are occupied by such ex-leaders as iQOO 7 (725 478), Redmi K40 Pro (719 798), Xiaomi Mi 11 (710 581).
And finally, the last two positions are occupied by new members of the rating from the Meizu 18 series – Meizu 18 (710 459) and Meizu 18 Pro (698 611)… Summing up, it is worth noting that all smartphones from the flagship list are based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset, and the HUAWEI Mate40 Pro based on Kirin 9000 is excluded from the rating.
However, for mid-range devices, things are completely different. Much to our surprise, the list remained almost the same as in February 2021, only with a change in the placement in places and the overall average score.
Redmi 10X 5G leads with 399,923 points, and the next four devices are Redmi 10X Pro 5G (396 906), Vivo S7t (393 918), HUAWEI nova 7 Pro (390 828) and HUAWEI nova 7 (390 575).
The remaining 5 places were taken by HUAWEI nova 8 Pro (388 995), HONOR 30 (386 045), HUAWEI nova 8 (385 489), HONOR X10 (359 867) and HONOR 30S (350 307).
If you take a closer look, you will notice: in the last 7 places in the rating of middle-class devices, Kirin chipsets completely dominate, and only in the top 3 is MediaTek’s Dimensity… Unfortunately, the list of mid-range phones does not have one with the Snapdragon chipset, and this shows that for now, competitors have conquered this segment to end Qualcomm’s dream of absolute leadership.
