November Android Phone Performance List
Just entered December, the cell phone circle is bustling with activity. The reason is that Qualcomm officially released a new generation of Snapdragon 8 Gen1 mobile platform, as the most widely used high-end chip in the Android camp, a release has attracted a lot of attention, the major cell phone manufacturers are also responding.
The new generation of Snapdragon 8 mobile platform renamed Snapdragon 8 Gen1, the parameters can be said to be a comprehensive upgrade, while the GPU performance has a substantial increase.
In addition to Qualcomm, MediaTek also released a 4nm flagship chip earlier, named Dimensity 9000, is obviously the impact of high-end, and Snapdragon 8 Gen1 to form a competitive relationship, also has a lot of Android flagships equipped, but the listing time is a little later, to wait until the first quarter of next year.
Before that, let’s take a look at the November Android phone performance list and revisit the performance of Snapdragon 888/888 Plus, to better compare the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen1 and MediaTek’s Dimensity 9000.
AnTuTu Benchmark brings the statistics time from November 1 to November 30, 2021, the list results are the average results counted rather than the highest results, and the data statistics of a single model > 1000, if a single model has multiple storage capacity versions on the list, the version with the highest score will be the main one.
Flagship, ranked first is the Black Shark 4S Pro, equipped with Snapdragon 888 Plus, the average score of 875382, the machine’s CPU and GPU belong to the normal level, is MEM (storage) does not speak wud, is currently the highest statistical valid score, there is no one.
In terms of storage, the Black Shark 4S Pro continues the SSD + UFS 3.1 flash memory combination, plus 512GB storage, significantly improving the MEM results, this approach is currently seen as more harm than good, due to the addition of SSD, the body volume with the heavy, and the results brought in addition to better storage performance, faster game loading, not much performance improvement, in other words, there is no obvious perception. Instead, the thickness and weight of the body are sacrificed.
If the volume can be controlled in the future, then it is not a bad idea to add SSD to the regular flagship, but for now, it is still suitable for gaming phones like the Black Shark that do not consider the weight of the body.
The Black Shark has introduced this technology since this year, and it is officially confirmed today that future models will continue, after all, this is a major selling point, and is also considered a new way to play with the unchanging configuration of cell phones today.
The second-place RedMagic Gaming Phone 6S Pro also has a similar story, also equipped with Snapdragon 888 Plus, the average score is 852719, the main improvement is in the CPU and GPU, compared to other Snapdragon 888 Plus models have a higher performance.
This is because the RedMagic 6S Pro has a small built-in fan and additional cooling openings on the side of the body, allowing the SoC to maintain high-frequency operation for a longer period, coupled with a rare 144Hz high refresh screen in its class, further enhancing the phone’s performance.
However, this design of the RedMagic sacrifices the body unity, to a certain extent reduces the aesthetics, so that and the Black Shark 4S Pro has similarities, is the pursuit of performance-oriented, the highest priority, the shape of what to put on the back burner.
The third-place model is iQOO 8 Pro, with an average score of 846663, and the first two compared to the more conventional flagship models, by comparing sub scores found that the machine’s CPU and GPU has a better performance.
The iQOO 8 Pro is positioned towards performance, and previous reviews have found that the GPU frequency is pulled higher, even to the same level as gaming phones, so you can conclude that the machine’s performance scheduling is spirited and worthy of the slogan born tough.
Others are equipped with Snapdragon 888 or Snapdragon 888 Plus models, the performance is the same, so not much more to say. The current ranking has not changed much, at this point, each Snapdragon 888 flagship is polished, is busy optimizing the new generation of the Snapdragon 8 mobile platform.
The next look at the mid-range side, the second half of the year has a large number of new Snapdragon 778G equipped with the release of the machine, so the list has undergone major changes.
Ranked first is equipped with Snapdragon 778G iQOO Z5, the average score of 566438, as mentioned in the last issue, the machine has a high performance, and the machine configuration is inseparable, in addition to carrying Snapdragon 778G, iQOO Z5 is also equipped with a full-blooded version of LPDDR5 (6400Mbps ) + full-featured version of UFS3.1 (the new V6 process), common in flagship phones, in the current mid-range models or a unique file. And the machine offers a 12GB memory version, for a mid-range model is rare, take the list of one is also deserved.
The second-place model is OPPO K9s, also equipped with Snapdragon 778G, other configurations are common LPDRR4x and UFS 2.2 flash memory, the special feature is the machine’s heat dissipation, the first use of 0.15mm graphite sheet, heat flux improved by about 50%, maintaining a high CPU frequency.
One said, OPPO K9s should be the strongest mid-range model released by the Oppo in the past two years, people themselves are on the publicity page to say “I am so strong ah”.
The third model is Xiaomi 11 Lite, equipped with Snapdragon 780G, using a 5nm process to build, architecture upgraded to 1 + 3 + 4, CPU has A78 large core support, so there is better performance, but Snapdragon 780G due to capacity problems, is said to be out of print, replaced by the 6nm process Snapdragon 778G.
The rest of the models are equipped with Snapdragon 778G, the overall performance is not a too big gap, it is worth noting that Redmi Note 11 Pro+, equipped with Dimensity 920, ranked tenth, so it can be seen that Dimensity 920 is slightly behind Snapdragon 778G, but as a mid-range, this performance is also considered adequate.
The above is all the content of the AnTuTu November Android phone performance list, overall, the flagship phone ranking changes little, want to significantly improve the performance can be another way, such as the black shark storage, RedMagic heat dissipation, the two are also familiar with the routine, the follow-up may evolve into a game phone long-term dominance of the situation.
The mid-range has a lot of new machines to join, but the performance is not particularly outstanding, not when the Dimensity 820, Kirin 820 as compared to the performance of the next flagship, equipped with these two chips models are still smooth.
Review of the past two years, to the end of the list each year, almost all Qualcomm a dominant situation, but now MediaTek turned up, released a flagship chip Dimensity 9000, performance enough to break hands with Qualcomm’s new generation of Snapdragon 8 platform, whether the two can be evenly divided? To be revealed later.
