Meizu MX4 tops AnTuTu's list of top Android phones for 2014

Meizu MX4 tops AnTuTu's list of top Android phones for 2014
The AnTuTu benchmark site released its list of the top scoring Android phones for 2014. On top was the Meizu MX4. Powered by the octa-core MT6595 from MediaTek, the phone had an average score of 47,765. For those new to the world of smartphones, the AnTuTu site tests Android devices submitted by users via an app that can be downloaded from the Google Play Store. AnTuTu tests each model's CPU, GPU, RAM, I/O and UX. When done, the app will give you an overall score, which can be different each time you run the app. Factors like the temperature of the phone and running apps can change the bottom line result.

After the Meizu MX4, the stock Android Nexus 6 was next with an average score of 47,079. A couple of phones from Sammy were next with the Samsung Galaxy Alpha (45,817) and the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (44,669) finishing third and fourth respectively. With an average result of 44,516, the OnePlus One rounds out the top five.

Some of the trends observed by AnTuTu include the use of a Snapdragon chip in seven out of the top ten devices, including two models that employ the Snapdragon 805 SoC (Nexus 6 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4). This year, AnTuTu expects to see phones powered by the Snapdragon 810 making its list.

In 2013, the top two ranked Android phones based on AnTuTu's testing were both Samsung Galaxy Note 3 models. On top was the Snapdragon 800 powered variant, while the version run by the Exynos 5420 finished second. You can check out the top ten for both 2014 and 2013 by clicking on the slideshow below.

Thanks for the tip!

Exynos is the key word. The snapdragon 805 variant scores 47k.

It's not about country, it's about quality. Stop hating Chinese products because your $50 crap isn't working.

Asus is a Chinese company. They also make the best PC motherboards. I'll take an Asus phone over your Samesung crap any day. Your crappy Samesung has the same protruding camera and speaker on the back for YEARS. BTW almost everything nowadays is made in China. Check your local Walmart if you don't believe me. So, get used to it! Zenfone 2 beats the crap out of your overpriced Samsung.

Based on the information presented here, that doesn't even make any sense. Slap yourself for the continually decreasing amount of intelligence you show in your comments.

Snapdragon 805 is still faster in real world use.

Come on. You know such results could be easily faked. MediaTek is dirt cheap crap up to their latest SoCs which can't (really) compete with Snapdragons and Co.

MediaTek is using the same technology as Qualcomm and Samsung. How can you say they are "dirt cheap crap" when their core architecture is licenced technology used by their competitors?? The only real difference in SoC is price, and MediaTek are very competitive. No doubt Apple will be using them soon in order to save $20/iphone sold

I wonder why such a chipset with an underwhelming GPU could top the AnTuTu list?

16. g2a5b0e unregistered

From what I understand, AnTuTu measures CPU performance, not GPU, so that should explain why. Although, I'm not 100% positive on that. Can anyone confirm?

Both actually I believe. But I think this mt6595 is doing some trickery with its CorePilot implementation in the multi core test to boost scores. The Rouge is a mid GPU at 600mhz?, I doubt single core score is out of this world an doubt memory throughput being any better so that just leaves a decent GPU score an multi CPU score. Thoughts?

ux/cpu/cpu/ram/gpu/io. those are the six categories antutu scores. it tests both 2d and 3d graphics.

Yes and no. Antutu as needa says measures ui/cpu/gpu/ram/io. BUT it gives too much importance to the CPU scores, making it nearly a CPU multithreaded test.
