August Android Phone Performance List
From short sleeves to jackets, the change in people’s clothing means that the weather is getting colder and the summer has come to an end this year. But for the cell phone market, the second half of the year is just the beginning of the heat, and will soon usher in the “golden nine silver ten”.
During this period, Apple will launch new iPhones with yearly update frequency to maintain next year’s sales, while cell phone manufacturers in the Android camp are also fist-pumping for a new round of market competition.
With the launch of Snapdragon 888 Plus, the Android camp began a concentrated update, which can be roughly divided into two categories, one is an iterative upgrade, such as Xiaomi MIX 4, Honor Magic 3, iQOO 8 Pro, and other models, the other category belongs to the small version of the update, the premise of changing the core, the only part of the details of the changes.
So how will their performance be? The August AnTuTu Android phone performance list was released today. The data statistics are from August 1 to August 31, 2021, and the results in the list are the average results counted rather than the highest results, and the data statistics of a single model are >1000 if a single model has multiple storage capacity versions on the list, the version with the highest score will be the main one.
First to see the flagship models, the first really did not expect, still dominate the list many times the Black Shark 4 Pro Gaming Phone, the average score of 864614, higher than the Snapdragon 888 Plus models run scores, the reason has been said many times, Black Shark this hand bending over, can be said to benefit a lot, so much so that its storage scores
Black Shark 4 Pro has a significant advantage, even the highest effective score. And, rarely, the SSD+UFS 3.1 flash memory combination equipped with the Black Shark 4 Pro is really useful, with significant speed improvements in-game loading and App installation, so what about other manufacturers that didn’t follow through? Weighing in at 220g body, it should not be a regular flagship at the moment.
But to say absolute performance (meaning CPU/GPU fully loaded), the Black Shark 4 Pro is definitely behind the Snapdragon 888 Plus models with full frequency, such as the second place iQOO 8 Pro.
iQOO 8 Pro is a recently released new machine with an average score of 846351, which is currently the highest score of the new Snapdragon 888 Plus model. After comparing the subscores, it was found that the storage score of the machine is more prominent than the GPU score, the former can be attributed to the 12GB + 512GB large storage advantage, and the latter is thanks to the high frequency.
In fact, in the iQOO 8 Pro review, we found that the machine has a larger power consumption, by looking at the comparison found that the iQOO 8 Pro GPU frequency pulled higher, so you can conclude that the machine performance scheduling spirited, but also maybe the reason for the new machine, slightly aggressive in the early stage, the follow-up may be considered power consumption and choose to reduce the frequency.
The third place is Tencent RedMagic 6 Pro Gaming Phone, the first few periods have been in the top three ranks, thanks to the internal stack of cooling materials, coupled with the unique small fan to dissipate heat, making the SoC longer to maintain a high frequency in exchange for high-performance performance, but also let the average score reached 829331, of course, the machine also belongs to the class of the bend, after all, the built-in fan and exclusive air ducts, conventional. The flagship can’t do it for the beauty of the body.
In the mid-range segment, the first ranked model is still Xiaomi 11 Youth Edition, which is equipped with Snapdragon 780G built by 5nm process, with an average score of 530657, maintaining such performance, power consumption is also very stable, 5nm, after all, belongs to the flagship process.
Unfortunately, the Snapdragon 780G may not be seen in the future, due to the lack of core problems, 5nm production line is tight, the flagship still needs to fill the gap, not to mention the positioning of the mid-range Snapdragon 780G, and only Xiaomi 11 Youth Edition exclusive.
The second and third place is the Honor 50 Pro and Honor 50, which are equipped with Snapdragon 778G, the average score of 511155, 506774, Snapdragon 778G and Snapdragon 780G have A78 large core support, compared to the subscore, the two chips do not have a large performance gap, but the former is a 6nm process, theoretical power consumption, certainly not as good as the 5nm process, but now, there is no choice, say Snapdragon 778G is not bad. The rest of the list are old models, such as OPPO Reno6 5G, Redmi 10X 5G, said many times in previous issues, you are also familiar with, so do not waste space.
The above is all the content of AnTuTu’s Android phone performance list in August. With the addition of the Snapdragon 888 Plus model to the flagship, the ranking began to change, but the Black Shark 4 Pro “does not talk about wu-de” leading the list with storage advantage, and the Snapdragon 888 Plus is a small performance improvement, so it is difficult to win the first place.
But you should know that Snapdragon 888 Plus has an absolute performance advantage after all, and there are many corresponding terminals listed, such as the officially announced RedMagic 6S Pro Gaming Phone, which is said to use a new heat dissipation material and is expected to improve the performance ceiling of Android phones again with its excellent heat dissipation. While the Black Shark 5, also tipped to debut soon with Snapdragon 888 Plus.
In the mid-range, there may be very few new machines released shortly, the global lack of core dilemma can not be solved for a while, the new mid-range SoC is difficult to mass production despite the planning, so we can only put it aside first. The next wave of Snapdragon 888 Plus is expected to hit the market in September, so who will replace the long-standing Black Shark 4 Pro?
