Snapdragon processors have completely dominated the January Android flagship smartphone performance chart on the AnTuTu benchmark. The newer Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 takes the top seven spots while the bottom three are taken up by phones running the Snapdragon 888 Plus. It’s kinda an achievement for Qualcomm, which has been facing increasing competition from rivals such as MediaTek, Samsung and Huawei.
The smartphone in top position is the iQOO 9 Pro, with the non-Pro version sitting in the second spot. Along with the Realme GT2 Pro, the iQOO 9 and iQOO 9 Pro managed to maintain average AnTuTu benchmark performance scores of over one million points. The oNePlus 10 Pro isn’t lagging behind too far away, topping 993,000 points, and this is followed by the highest-performing Xiaomi phone, the 12Pro, on 980,828 points.
The next two spots are snagged up by the Motorola Moto Edge X30 and Xiaomi 12 before SD888+ devices start appearing. These come in the forms of the Black Shark 4S Pro, Red Magic 6S Pro and the iQOO 8 Pro, to take up the final three spots in the top 10 list. Like any benchmark AnTuTu faces multiple criticisms for its scoring and process, but it still seems to be a very good month for both Qualcomm and iQOO.
