The AnTuTu benchmark team has published a new ranking of mid-range Android smartphones in the international market for March 2021. It differs markedly from the similar AnTuTu ranking in China.
There were no revolutionary changes in the ranking over the month. As the AnTuTu team notes, the mid-range smartphone market is currently not receiving an influx of “fresh blood”. Nevertheless, one interesting phenomenon is observed in the ranking. The Honor 30 smartphone, which was leading in the AnTuTu ranking for five months in a row, was finally removed from the first place.
However, as the leader, he was also replaced by not the newest smartphone – Huawei Nova 7. According to AnTuTu experts, these two smartphones have occupied I and II places in recent months, sometimes changing between themselves. In terms of the number of average points scored, they are very close to each other, and a change in position can be considered an error. The reason for this phenomenon is simple – in fact, this is one model based on the Kirin 985, produced under different brands.
Third place again belongs to the Redmi 10X 5G based on the MediaTek Dimensity 820, followed by Realme 7 5G, Xiaomi Mi 10T Lite 5G, Redmi K30 5G, Xiaomi Mi 10i, Mi 10 Lite 5G, Huawei Nova 7i and Realme 7.
Statistics collected from March 1 to March 31, 2021. The AnTuTu ranking uses average, not the highest scores. For each smartphone, the results of at least 1000 tests were taken into account – models with fewer tests are not included in the rating.
