The ranking of the most powerful smartphones of the last month (AnTuTu) has been released
Since smartphones are divided by price range, let's start with that of top of the range.
First place: ASUS ROG 7 Pro
Average Score: 1325814
After a gap of many months, a gaming phone returns to dominate the AnTuTu ranking; it's about the last one ASUS ROG 7 Pro. The new flagship ROG 7 Pro powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen2 processor achieved an average score of 1,32 million, which is not only a symbol of the power of the device but reminds us why gaming phones exist.
The new ROG 7 Pro actually bears many similarities to the previous generation, the ROG 6 Dimension Extreme Edition. Especially the design of the cooling valve, which is simple and efficient, but needs to be equipped with a dedicated cooling fan to fully open it. ROG has also taken this fan a step further, adding a subwoofer and a headphone jack. The ASUS ROG 7 Pro is therefore a flawless gaming phone in every respect.
Second place: OPPO Find X6 Pro
Average Score: 1309873
Last month, the phone ranked first in AnTuTu's performance list. In terms of design, the Desert Silver Moon is definitely the most beautiful color combination.
Third place: Red Magic 8 Pro+
Average Score: 1308918
Other than ROG 7 Pro, the only other gaming phone is from Red Magic. Indeed, the Red Magic 8 Pro+ ranked third among flagship phones in this ranking.
Compared to ROG 7 Pro's all-in-one design, the Red Magic 8 Pro+ is much simpler. Thanks to its square design and a right-angled metal frame, the Red Magic 8 Pro+ could become a new benchmark for flat screen device design, as well as already being a benchmark for performance.
The top ten models in the top-of-the-range category are all equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen2 chip, while the MediaTek Dimensity 9200 does not appear in the rankings. That said, MediaTek will be bringing a new flagship processor in May, the Dimension 9200+. We expect really high performances.
Now let's move on to the band nicknamed "sub-flagships” where the Snapdragon 7+ Gen2 chip is still king.
First place - Redmi Note 12 Turbo
Average Score: 965589
The world's first phone with the Snapdragon 7+ Gen2, the Redmi Notes 12 Turbo, ranks first in the performance list for the second consecutive month after its release and scores 960k points on AnTutu, ahead of second place iQOO Neo7 SE by more than 110k points lead.
Second place: iQOO Neo7 SE
Average Score: 856750
Compared to last year's dominant Dimension 8100, this year's Dimension 8200 is about to disappear from the list. The price reduction of the Snapdragon 8+ will be a very difficult opponent, as will the new Snapdragon 7+ Gen2 that we will see in new devices next month. In any case, using the Dimensity 8200 chip can lower the starting price more effectively and the experience of the Dimensity 8200 is still great. After all, his AnTuTu score is 85k points, which is more than enough.
Third place: Redmi K60E
Average Score: 841225
In third place we have the Redmi K60E, which also has the MediaTek Dimensity 8200 processor on board. Although the price is less than 2000 yuan (260 euros), slightly more expensive devices from Realme and OnePlus are perhaps preferable. If you are willing to spend a little more, you can in fact buy a phone with Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 and significantly improved performance, as well as having more RAM and internal memory.
To recap, in April, the Snapdragon 8 Gen2 and Snapdragon 7+ Gen2 chips dominated their respective categories. Now we just have to see what changes MediaTek's next high-end chip, the Dimensity 9200+, will bring
