The Galaxy S20 Ultra assumed the position of most powerful Android in the world, according to the ranking prepared by AnTuTu in March. Asus’ ROG Phone 2 smartphone took first place for six consecutive months, but went to fifth place on this month’s list giving way to Galaxy S20 phones.
The ranking serves as a parameter for the market, as it reveals the computational capacity of the most sought-after devices. The data collection period for the current report was from March 1st to 31st. Classifications occur in two categories: premium and intermediate.
Samsung’s launches already registered significant scores in the previous result, but the platform did not include them in the February ranking because the user base was still small to calculate the average performance. In the top ten, Galaxy S20 family phones appear in six positions. In the list of intermediaries, the Redmi Note 8 Pro continues to lead for the third straight month.
Recently the South Korean giant was the target of a petition made by users dissatisfied with the Exynos processor on branded cell phones. The request was for the company to switch exclusively to chips from the Snapdragon line, provided by Qualcomm. The platform’s results corroborate customer complaints, as Samsung phones with the Snapdragon 865 fared better than smartphones with the Exynos 990 processor.
Unlike the American version of the smartphone that has Qualcomm’s chip, the South Korean giant chose to market in Brazil cell phones of the Galaxy S20 line with the Exynos 990.
Galaxy S20 line dominates ranking of top of the line phones
The Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G won the gold medal in the ranking of premium phones with an average score of 562,262. The toughest version of the South Korean phone with Snapdragon 865, 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage was the one that did the best. In addition to cutting-edge performance, another highlight of the smartphone is the photographic set with sensor up to 108 MP and zoom up to 100 times.
From the second to the fourth place the cell phones are also from the S20 family. With the silver medal, the Galaxy S20 Plus 5G features 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of data space. It also brings the Snapdragon 865, totaling 549,904 points. Following the classification, the S20 Ultra appears, this time with internal memory of 128 GB and Exynos 990. The smartphone has 12 GB of RAM and registers 519,297 points. The fourth place is the Galaxy S20 Plus with reduced space, with 128 GB, and 12 GB of RAM. The smartphone features 5G technology and Exynos 990 processor, scoring 516,138.

Redmi Note 8 Pro continues to lead the way among middlemen
The Redmi Note 8 Pro remains at the top of the intermediate handset ranking in March. With 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory, the smartphone uses Helio G90T processor from MediaTek and received a score of 292,510.
Xiaomi is also present in the second and third place with the Mi Note 10 and Mi 9T.

According to the classification, the seven subsequent products are: Galaxy A71, realme X2, Mi Note 10, Galaxy A80, realme Q, realme XT and Mi 9 SE.
AnTuTu’s benchmark apps were excluded from the Play Store, which causes uncertainty regarding the platform’s next rankings. According to Google, the company belongs to Cheetah Mobile, which is prohibited from making apps available in the store for violating the usage policy several times. This link between the companies is supported by the Chinese database Tianyancha, which identifies Fu Sheng as president of both Beijing AnTuTu Technology Co. and Cheetah Mobile. AnTuTu, however, claims that the information does not proceed.
