Samsung Galaxy S20 and iQOO 7 join Vivo's X series as the latest threats to Xiaomi and Redmi dominance in rejigged AnTuTu price-performance charts
AnTuTu’s Android price-performance charts have now been slightly rearranged via their price parameters to broaden their range in each list and include more-expensive smartphones in the highest-end table. The shake-up has affected places, with four new chart leaders taking position, although this includes the Xiaomi Mi 11 that simply moved from heading one table to another thanks to a lower configuration model (8 GB RAM vs. 12 GB RAM). Xiaomi and Redmi once again manage to snag four out of five chart crowns, with just the iQOO 7 keeping the Mi 10 well away from the midrange title. The current chart-toppers are as follows:
- 0-1,999 yuan (US$0–US$310): Redmi 10X 5G 6 GB + 128 GB
- 2,000-2,999 yuan (US$310–US$464): Redmi K30S Ultra 8 GB + 128 GB
- 3,000-3,999 yuan (US$465–US$619): iQOO 7 8 GB + 128 GB
- 4,000-4,999 yuan (US$619–US$774): Xiaomi Mi 11 8 GB + 256 GB
- 5,000 yuan+ (US$774+): Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra 8 GB + 128 GB
Looking at the list above, you would be forgiven for thinking only the Snapdragon 888-powered iQOO 7, which has been selling like hot cakes, is capable of breaking through Xiaomi/Redmi’s control over the AnTuTu price-performance lists. But going through each chart (see below) reveals that brands such as Vivo (and iQOO) and Realme are pushing hard in order to snatch some market share away from Xiaomi, and there’s still certainly plenty of love left for Huawei domestically, with the Mate and P series phones peppering the higher-end tables.
Representatives from Vivo’s X series are also looking to challenge the establishment, with the Vivo X60 Pro and X50 Pro+ being considered especially worthy while the Vivo X60 Pro+ with its Snapdragon 888 SoC is likely to ruffle some feathers in next month’s charts. Lastly, Samsung can now get a look-in thanks to the new higher price bands, with the Galaxy S20, S20+, S20 Ultra, and Galaxy Note20 Ultra occupying four places in the 5,000 yuan+ chart. The Redmi 10X has the highest score overall, with 283.3 points, as price cuts, 5G connectivity, an AMOLED screen, and a MediaTek Dimensity 820 SoC combine to make it very difficult to remove.
