Top 10 fastest Android phones for Q3 released by AnTuTu, and the winner is...
The popular cross-platform AnTuTu benchmark has quietly released its quarterly smartphone performance rankings, and it's been a true Exynos fest over there in Q3. 

While it's not exactly news for anyone following the mobile chipset industry, Samsung's 14nm chipsets are screeching fast, and it shows - the first five handsets in the ranking are powered by the Exynos 7420. Next in line are five phones with Snapdragon 810, as can be expected, but it's the one that topped the chart that is the newsworthy piece here. 

The new Meizu PRO 5 wouldn't be the first phone that comes to mind to associate with top places in any synthetic speed rankings, but it is indeed powered by Exynos 7420, and since it has a 1080p display, unlike the rest in the top 5 that have 1440p panels, it's only logical that the Meizu PRO 5 would top the chart with the amazing 76852 points average score on AnTuTu.

Lol who cares. Nexus 6P performance > any android phone. Everyone knows it's all about real world performance, and the Nexus 5 can keep up with just about any flagship today. Even look at the 6P. It gets beaten by so many with great benchmark performance, but so many sites state it's blazing fast compared to the "benchmark beast" phones. Benchmarks aren't meaningless, but they don't automatically suggest better performance, especially when talking about Samsung phones. Samsung and OnePlus have great benchmark scores, but they are consistently beaten by phones with lower specs that run stock.

Even Nexus 4 or iPhone 5 also runs fine for day to day activity. That means nothing when comparing about "chipset" performance. This article is about benchmark of the hardware. And you come here showing off your wisdom about how benchmarks are useless. Maybe next time try to comment on the topic of article rather then saying something totally irrelevant. These "stock zombies" herd are a trend now in every site. They will act as if they hold the eternal knowledge about every smartphone. And anything which doesn't conform to their ideas is incorrect.

"Maybe next time try to comment on the topic of article rather then saying something totally irrelevant" LOL let's take some time to see how stupid you just made yourself look. By your logic, real world performance is "irrelevant" to this artice, and benchmark performance has no correlation with how the device ACTUALLY performs? Wow rd_nest, you by far are the most idiotic person on here. I just feel bad that you wrote two unnecessary paragraphs that exposed your stupidity. Also, read your very last sentence and apply it to your idiotic paragraphs. Just because you think this artice doesn't materially relate to real world use does NOT mean it is correct.

Mr. Phanboy, rd_nest is correct in this instance. Real world performance is only slightly relevant to this article. This is a benchmark of the hardware, and the only way in which real-world performance becomes relevant is when factoring in that some phones have 1080p displays while others have 1440p displays. It is still purely about the hardware performance. Now I'm not arguing that real world performance isn't ultimately what matters to users, just saying that it is indeed not the point of this benchmark or this article.

The ultimate point of a benchmark is to judge real world performance. If it wasn't, what reason would people have to be excited over benchmarks? To say that real world performance does not relate to this article is insanely idiotic.

Okay, let me be very clear: The ultimate point of a HARDWARE benchmark is to measure the CAPABILITIES of the hardware. What the software is able to get out of that hardware will always be some amount less than the raw hardware capability. To further emphasize this, here's AnTuTu's own description of what its benchmark measures: "AnTuTu Benchmark is a comprehensive Android Benchmarking application. It includes "Memory Performance", "CPU Integer Performance", "CPU Floating Point Performance", "2D 3D Graphics Performance", "SD card read-write speed", "Database IO" performance testing." Note that those are all hardware measurement metrics, as "CPU Floating Point" calculations for instance say nothing about real-world performance. Yes, software on the phone can have SLIGHT impact on how performant the device is in these operations, but that impact is not what dictates real-world performance. Real-world performance is an amalgamation of a greater number of factors. Now let's please understand what benchmarking is instead of projecting what we think it should be.

Penny, People look at mobile benchmarks to judge capability which is reflect through the software it runs. All of the hardware metrics you refer to can let someone know the likelihood of something running the way it's supposed in practice, by comparing it to relatable devices.

Never argue with an idiot. They will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience. You win!

Wanna know something your nexus 6p sucks at? Doing anything that strains the CPU and then it throttles... any gaming will start lagging quickly and heavy browsing kills the battery because of the 810 SOC. The exynos is much better thermally than the 810. With root, the Galaxy S6 becomes a beast as you can fix all the problems with the multitasking issues and the occasional stuttering while nearly doubling battery life... I get average 6-7H Sot when stock i get like 3-4.

Also, please feel free to keep stalking me on this website with idiotic responses. I have fun destroying your foolish points everytime.

Both the hardcore objective and subjective nerds need to take a break. It is usually a phone that strikes a balance between objective and subjective power and feel that is the best. I personally wouldn't might having a top 10 objective result phone that has a top 10 subjective feel too. In the case most Android flagships these days, both are very possible.

And how did you determine that Nexus 6P is faster than... let me say Note 5?

Z5 compact should be there It's got better scores than Z5 which is there

IT should be under the S6 edge

Yeah I've seen the Z5 Compact get over 60,000 on AnTuTu Just see Btekt's video

wonder who will be the first to break 100K..maybe S7

Benchmarks mean nothing in real life, and in daily use of a smartphone.

That depends of what you are doing. If you facebook or play simple games it is ok of not be interested in how much powerful is your device. But if you work with images software or play intensive graphics games it is a totally different situation. On daily basis a med specs phone will be more than sufficient. BUT somtimes this kind of phone can lag on browsing or on simple tasks because of the developers which codes their software according to newest cips. In conclusion if you want power choose the first cpu's regarding benchmarks.

How many times I saw one phone destroying another phone in every 3D benchmark and then loosing in almost all 3D games...

While it gives you an idea on how it will perform, I agree that it's not all about benchmarks. In terms of real life usage speeds, HTC takes the crown here.

Absolutely, why don't you use galaxy nexus or nexus 4 then??
