AnTuTu lists the best performing devices of 2014 Q3, iPhone 6 nowhere to be found
Popular mobile benchmarks testing outfit, AnTuTu, has posted what it calls the Top 10 Performing Smartphones, Quarter 3 2014. And for the records, this means the best devices their benchmark tool has tested, with an average point derived from millions of smartphones in over 160 countries.
A MediaTek-chipset surprisingly came out first — the Meizu Mx4. However it’s only 170 points away from Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 phablet at second position, but then, a win is always a win.
Other high-end smartphones follow: The Samsung Galaxy Alpha, OnePlus One, Motorola Moto X, HTC One (M8), Oppo Find 7, Sony Xperia Z3, Huawei Ascend Mate 7 and the Xiaomi Mi4. But one device was not seen on the list. The device is the most-trolled smartphone of 2014 aka the Apple iPhone 6 Plus, or it’s shorter sibling, the Apple iPhone 6 — none was seen.
Despite many users iPhone 6 Plus claiming to have scored over 50,000 points on the benchmark tool, it seems that the reason was because the resolution on a 6+ and 6 are defaulted to 1136 x960 on AnTuTu. An expert says that when the actual pixels of this smartphones were tested, there should be a significant drop in benchmark numbers.
