AnTuTu released annual performance report, iPhone 6s thrashes Android's high-end phones

14 January 2016 0

Performance Benchmark vendor Antutu has recently announced its annual performance ranking report for the first time this year. Antutu has given us surprising results of high-end smartphones including Android devices and Apple’s iPhone 6s (Plus). The company also announced their cross-platform release of its Antutu 6.0 Benchmark in 2015.

The latest results have shown that iPhone 6s outdid all the other high-end smartphones which are powered by their in-house chipsets. Despite being compared against high-end Android with more RAM and faster CPU clocks, iPhone 6s came out as a best-performing smartphone of the year. iPhone 6s powered by Apple’s custom dual-core A9 chip with 2GB RAM scored 41 percent higher tan the next fastest phone. Huawei Mate 8 which is powered by company’s own octa-core Kirin 950 with 3GB or 4GB RAM secured the second position, however.

Apple’s flagship scored 59% faster than Samsung’s best ranking model Galaxy Note 5, a phablet powered by a higher-clocked Samsung Exynos 7420 Octa chip with 4GB RAM. iPhone 6s also scored 69% better than Google’s Nexus 6P which is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor with 3GB RAM.

Now, the question is, what makes Apple’s devices so unique and leaders among other handsets? The answer is a little complex. Many smartphone manufacturers force themselves to develop smartphones according to the leading specs or they follow the ongoing fashion, for instance if a chipset maker announced their new processor, the smartphone vendors will make use of these processors in their next flagships. But Apple’s strategy is different from all other vendors. Apple actually adds more power to its already available chipset configuration.

It has also been observed that Apple has remained ahead of more experienced mobile chipmakers in both performance and energy efficiency since it last delivered its first generation 64-bit A7 powering iPhone 5s. Also, Qualcomm’s failures have been making ways for Apple to grow even faster. The last story of heating issues of Snapdragon 815 processor is a great fact to exemplify here.

It has also been observed that many smartphone manufacturers have been cheating consumers by showing wrong Antutu benchmarks. They were reportedly caught fudging their performance rankings. Some of the names who were caught doing this act are Samsung, Asus, HTC and LG. However, there is an exception of Apple and Google’s subsidiary company Motorola who have been giving genuine results.
