When buying a new smartphone, one thing is particularly important: its performance. It not only determines the speed of the device, but also the longevity and the clean execution of various functions, such as games or photography.
Saved data, new software updates and every downloaded app have an impact on the performance and gradually use up the reserves to varying degrees. How smoothly and quickly a cell phone reacts can be shown using benchmarks, among other things.
This is exactly what the AnTuTu benchmark app can do . A wide variety of values are compared. The evaluation criteria include the performance of the main memory (RAM), the processor (CPU / SoC) and the graphics chip (GPU). The numerical value that results from these calculations shows how fast the smartphone actually works. The higher this number is in the end, the better the smartphone scores in the top 10.
Of course, there are many other criteria that determine the quality of a smartphone. In the CHIP test center , for example, the performance of the power, the battery, the display, the camera and the general equipment of the cell phone also determine the test grade. The mobile phone best list currently contains 140 smartphones from all manufacturers and their test results.
