Apple iPhone 7 blows away the competition on AnTuTu with a score of 178,393

Apple iPhone 7 blows away the competition on AnTuTu with a score of 178,393
The Apple iPhone 7 has been able to turn some heads with a report from AnTuTu showing that the handset scored a record shattering 178,397 on AnTuTu's benchmark test. Apple has done a great job designing the chipsets employed by the 2015 and 2016 iPhone models. As powerful as the A9 SoC is, the A10 scored about 33% higher than the 133,781 rung up last month on AnTuTu by the Apple iPhone 6s.

AnTuTu also posted a list of the top ten August test scores; nine of the phones were powered by Android. On top of that list was the OnePlus 3. The latter scored 140,388 and is equipped with the Snapdragon 820 chipset and 6GB of RAM. That was followed by the Vivo Xplay 5 Elite's 138,706 and the LeEco Max 2's 138,026. Among the more popular handsets, the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge finished seventh with a tally of 134,599. In 10th position was the HTC 10 with a score of 133,217.

To show you how far the industry has come in such a short amount of time, the top ranking phone on AnTuTu during the second quarter of 2014 was the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. The phablet had a top ranked score of 38,958. Of course, there have been several updates to AnTuTu over the years, but we can still get some idea about how much more powerful smartphones have become.
