In 2021 we saw parade several dozens of phones that hit the market month after month to try to conquer users. Some of them turn out to be more powerful than others and to determine which are the top performers, AnTuTu publishes a monthly ranking of smartphone power.
Earlier this year, this benchmarking app that measures the performance of different elements of the SoC of cell phones, published its list with the most powerful devices launched in December 2021; from 1st to 31st. However, since it is not the global list, the ranking is only made up of phones sold in China.
In any case, it is always a very interesting list because AnTuTu analyzes them and gives them a score after studying them based on four key parameters in the devices: GPU, CPU, RAM and user experience.
