Antutu has released its yearly chart for most powerful smartphones, this year including the iPhone 6s/6s Plus. The new benchmark version 6.0 now comes with iOS support for cross-platform performance comparison, and Apple's latest pair immediately steals the show. Scoring north of 132K points, the iPhone 6s(Plus), as Antutu puts it (similar results from either device are implied), is the most powerful smartphone of 2015. It might have something to do with the inclusion of more thorough graphics testing in the new benchmark version, and Apple's A9 chip has the currently undisputed GPU king inside. Closest to the iPhone 6s, but not really close per se, is the Huawei Mate 8, at almost 93K points. The Kirin 950 chip inside paired with a 1080p display makes for a strong performer. The conservative choice of resolution (FullHD, too) on the Meizu PRO 5 helps it pull ahead of Samsung's own flagships, where the Exynos 7420 has to deal with 78% more pixels. The older-gen iPhone pair comes in sixth, inching ahead of the OnePlus 2, which is the highest-ranked Snapdragon 810 device. It's all Qualcomm's troubled high-end chip from then on, with the LeTV 1Pro, Xiaomi Note Pro and the Nexus 6P rounding up the chart. Source |...
