The iPhone still rules the roost, with the iPhone 7 plus and iPhone 7 taking the top two slots. It is amazing that after all these years of Android manufacturers throwing in the biggest, baddest, meanest processors and RAM into their devices, they all still get beat by Apple’s boys.
Note also how big the gap between the iPhone boys and the most powerful Android flagship is. Oh, well.
AnTuTu says the above scores are the average score of each model, not the highest score. As you already know, the actual running results for each benchmark test of a phone fluctuates. As such, using the average score is sound practice. A minimum of 2000 data samples for each device was used. The data used to arrive at the above scores was gleaned from November 1, 2016 to November 30, 2016.
Do you own one of these bad boys? All hail.
