There has been lots of comparison of Android Phones and iPhones and also for theirs CPUs. However, today we are going to compare the best CPUs, but will compare 3 different type of benchmarking; CPU, GPU, and UX (User Experience). Please note that these scores are based on Antutu Benchmarking Report.

Top 10 Smartphones with Best Antutu CPU Benchmark Score

Well, as far as CPU Benchmark Score is concerned, it’s not just Apple A10 Chip in iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, but Apple A9 in iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, and iPhone SE are still the best CPU even they are almost 2 years old. So there are no other smartphones under Top 5 except iPhones. Snapdragon 835 in OnePlus 5 and HTC U11 Holds the 6th and 7th position. Exynos 8895

Let’s Move to User Experience (UX) Benchmark

UX benchmark report

In the UX, Snapdragon 835 in HTC U11 and OnePlus 5 holds the first and second position. The Apple A10 in iPhone 7 and 7 Plus holds the 3rd and 4th position. What happened with Xiaomi Mi 6 and Xperia XZ Premium models? Why are they falling behind? Well, if you see the scores, there isn’t so much difference, so in average, you will have to accept that Apple A10 and SD 835 both are almost equal as far as UX is concerned. However, the big disappointed is the Exynos 8895 CPU in Galaxy S8 series model that are still with Snapdragon 821 CPU in the OnePlus 3T model.

Now moving to 3D/GPU Benchmark Score

GPU Benchmark

Snapdragon 835 and Exynos 8895 models are very close as far as 3D benchmark is concerned. Snapdragon 821 is also under top 10 list. However, what happened with iPhone, where is it? Unfortunately, Apple A10 in iPhone 7 Plus holds the 30th position. Here is the screenshot from Antutu.

The Verdict

Every CPU has its own advantage. The best part to measure a CPU or the Smartphone performance is the UX (User Experience). The higher UX Score tells the faster data processing/handling as well as the smoother multitasking feature. If the UX Score is higher, the system should also be faster. So Considering these things, one may certainly say that OnePlus 5 and the HTC U11 are currently the best Smartphones.

How about iPhones? Is iPhone no longer faster?

iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are still one of the best Smartphone you can buy. It is not the best, though. However, we are comparing smartphones that are 1 year old, and Apple is almost ready to announce iPhone 7s or iPhone 8 series models with Apple A11 CPU. So these models would probably beat those smartphones that Current Models couldn’t beat. If you want to see the real speed differences between iPhone 7 and OnePlus, then you should watch this video.

Note: Apple A10X is also a chipset that Apple used in 2017 iPad Pro models

Apple A10X Chipset has not been included in the comparison. It has been used in iPad Pro models that Apple launched in 2017. However, these devices also run iOS (same OS that you use on your iPhones). So if we include Apple A10 in the list, then Apple A10X beats all the other CPUs found in Mobile Devices. Whether it is the overall score, 3D score, or UX Score.
