Flagship models: the best Android phones

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 is undoubtedly the best chipset in the Android field. Its presence means that we are facing a flagship phone. So it is not surprising to see that the best Android phones in the category come with the mentioned SoC.

However, it is not perfect. We know that the chip uses Samsung’s 4nm process node, which has some heating issues. That is why the newly announced Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 it replaces it with TSMC’s identical manufacturing process, which has proven to be more stable. Anyway, the first smartphones with this new chip are not yet available on the market. and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 still dominates the category.

Let’s learn about the specific models that entered the top 10. Not surprisingly, the Black Shark 5 Pro takes first place with an average score of 1,048,179; second place is the Red Magic 7 Pro under-display camera version with an average score of 1,032,445; third place is the Lenovo Y90 phone with an average score of 1,020,942. As we can see, the top three are gaming phones.

However, the Black Shark 5 Pro could win the race thanks to the SSD+UFS 3.1 combination. The latter greatly improves the storage capacity of the mobile phone. Therefore, the performance of the MEM is far ahead of competing models. In contrast, the Red Magic 7 Pro takes advantage of active air cooling and heat dissipation. It comes with a small custom fan built in. Thanks to it, the CPU/GPU maintains the high frequency for a longer time.

Although the Legion Y90 combines the two solutions of Black Shark and Red Magic, and comes with the SSD+UFS 3.1 combination (only the top 640 GB version) and active air cooling, for some reason it took third place.

Well, there are also two models with the Dimensity 9000 in the list of the best Android phones. The VIVO X80 ranks fourth with an average score of 1,013,845. We assume that the GPU performance of this chip is behind the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. That is why it appeared only in the fourth place.

Sub-flagship models: best Android phones

Eight out of ten models come with MediaTek processors. Most of them use the Dimension 8100that appeared not long ago.

The first model in the list of the best Android phones in the sub-flagship category is the VIVO S15 Pro. It has an average score of 814,995. Under the hood, it packs the aforementioned Dimensity 8100 processor.

The second and third models are the Realme GT Neo 3 and the Redmi Note 11T Pro+. The mean scores are 809,706 and 808,642, respectively. Generally speaking, all three models come with similar configurations. So it is logical to see identical scores.

What about mid-range models?

The list of the best mid-range Android phones hasn’t changed much. The reason is that many manufacturers slowed down the speed of launching new smartphones in this category. Regardless, most models sport the snapdragon 778G chip. But there is a phone powered by Dimensity 900.
