Half way into the year and we’ve already seen a lot of high-end Android smartphones being launched around the world, but which one is the most powerful of them all? According to AnTuTu, the answer is none other than the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge.
The result was published in AnTuTu’s global performance ranking for the first half of the year taken from 1 January 2015 to 1 July 2015. The Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge takes the top two positions in the report, scoring over 10,000 points more than the next in line. AnTuTu notes that this is due to the strong performance of Samsung’s very own Exynos 7420 processor.
The next most powerful smartphones are all powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor with Xiaomi Mi Note Pro, LeTV Le 1 Pro, ZTE Nubia Z9 Max, HTC One M9 and ZTE Nubia Z9 taking the third to seventh positions respectively.
Finally, while MediaTek is a known for making affordable chipsets for budget smartphones, the MediaTek MT6795 aka MediaTek Helio X10 puts the LeTV Le 1 in eight place. Sadly, the HTC One M9+ that also uses the same processor did not make the top ten list. Instead, taking the last two positions are the Snapdragon powered Samsung Galaxy S5 (enhanced version), and Google Nexus 6.
While some smartphone manufactures have been caught boosting their own benchmark results, AnTuTu says that it has not taken into account false entries that have been rigged to achieve a higher score.
