Unlike the previous years, Qualcomm not only released Snapdragon 855 flagship mobile platform this year, but also launched Snapdragon 855 Plus in July, which is 15% faster than the former in terms of GPU performance and has powered most of the flagship phones released in the next half of 2019.
According to statistical data from Antutu background database, today Antutu reveals our list of the Top 10 best performing Android phones for August 2019. As there are some new models entering this month’s top 10 ranking, including some Snapdragon 855 Plus devices, there are some changes in the rankings of this month compared with that of the previous month. It’s worth noting that some devices are not included in the list because the number of their scores in Antutu database didn’t reach the statistical requirement of 1000.
1. Score: the average score of each model, not the highest score (actual running results may fluctuate, which is a normal phenomenon).

In August, Asus’s new gaming phone ROG Phone 2 claimed the top position with an average Antutu score of 396,813. Its slightly exaggerated appearance and the LOGO light with RGB lighting effects give the phone a rather eSports style look. Speaking of hardware configuration, the phone is powered by Snapdragon 855 Plus processor paired with UFS 3.0 storage. It comes with a massive 6000mAh battery, supports 30W fast battery charging and can run large games fluently. Above all, the phone features a 6.59-inch AMOLED FHD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate, making it very attractive for gamers.
Coming in second is Asus ZenFone 6 2019 device, which achieves an average Antutu score of 376,671. As Asus ZenFone 6 is the most recent Snapdragon 855 flagship, it has more time to do performance optimization and improvement compared with other Snapdragon 855 smartphones released earlier before it. Apart from powerful performance, the Asus ZenFone 6 2019 also features a 48MP flip camera, a rear camera that flips up to become the selfie camera, which makes its screen visually appealing.
Taking the third slot on this list is the OnePlus 7 Pro, achieving an average Antutu score of 372,534. The phone is the newest flagship of OnePlus. Although it is driven by Snapdragon 855 rather than Snapdragon 855 Plus, it is the first smartphone on the market to ship with UFS 3.0 storage. Plus, the 2K and 90 Hz display greatly improved the fluency of the phone. In addition, OnePlus 7 Pro features the biggest changes ever in the design of OnePlus flagship phones. It adopts a retractable pop-up camera design on top of the device, creating an excellent screen-to-body ratio for its display, which received an A+ rating from screen testing company DisplayMate.
Ranking at No.4, No.5 and No.6 are in order Mi 9, Redmi K20 Pro and OnePlus 7 with respective Antutu scores of 371,108, 370,398 and 370,111. All the three models are powered by Snapdragon 855 processor and have an average Antutu score of 370k+.
The next three smartphones ranked in the top 10, in order, are Samsung Note10+ (SDM855), Mi 9T Pro and Mi BlackShark 2, which scored 369,362, 364,735 and 362,652 respectively, all of which are also powered by Snapdragon 855 processor and have an average Antutu score of 360k+.
Samsung Note10+ 5G (9825) secured the last position with an average Antutu score of 348,840. The phone is powered by Exynos 9825 processor.
