Best Performing Flagship Phones July 2020

MediaTek has finally made a grand entrance in an otherwise Snapdragon-laden competition.

There's a new flagship chipset in the competition, and it's not from the Snapdragons and HiSilicons of the world.

MediaTek's flagship, 5G-enabled system on a chip Dimensity 1000+, has officially entered AnTuTu's list of Global Best Performing Android Phones in July 2020. Through the iQOO Z1 smartphone, which is noted for its affordability and impressive specs such as a high 144Hz refresh rate, the Taiwanese chipmaker's recent efforts have finally paid off.

The iQOO Z1 places itself on the tenth spot, with 510,960 points.

In ninth and eighth place are Samsung's premier offerings which garnered scores of 514,325 and 515,781 points respectively. These phones are the Samsung Galaxy S20+ 5G and Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G. Both powered by the Korean tech giant's Exynos 990 chip, the smartphones also feature 12GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

Perennial bang-for-your-buck powerhouse Xiaomi is right on the seventh spot with the regular Mi 10. The Snapdragon 865-powered device generated 566,566 points, with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage in tow.

The POCOPHONE F1 successor, the POCO F2 Pro, is resilient as ever, clinching the sixth spot with 572,854 points. It also has the same configurations of the list's previous entry.

The vanilla OnePlus 8, on the other hand, is in fifth place, with 576,514 points. It features Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865, with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. Meanwhile, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro managed to climb on the fourth spot, with 584,344 points. It has the same hardware offerings as the regular Mi 10 in this compilation.

Camera prodigy Redmi K30 Pro shoots and scores the third spot with an impressive 591,525 points. The phone is again powered by the Snapdragon 865 chipset, with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage.

Another Pro edition makes it to the top. The list's second placer is the OnePlus 8 Pro, with 598,169 points. Unlike its vanilla sibling, this entry went bigger with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage.

Spearheading the exclusive list is the OPPO Find X2 Pro with 604,805 points. The sublime, modern-looking all-rounder, is powered by the same premium Snapdragon chipset, which is made all the more powerful with its accompanying 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage.

Apart from the definitive entry of a MediaTek chipset, AnTuTu's global list of the most powerful Android smartphones is relatively old news. The compilation is still dominated by Qualcomm, with Samsung's Exynos appearing from time to time.

On the other hand, Xiaomi and Redmi are still the tag team to beat.

Expect the list to change in the coming months as ASUS, nubia, Black Shark and Samsung's newest iterations will most likely join the list.
