Some customers don’t particularly worry about different device ratings. Their main concern is the phone itself. Is it powerful and fast enough or is it comfortable to work with, – these are the main questions which worry the users. But there are others who are eagerly interested in all these “top-charts”. They want to know if their smartphone is better than any other. That’s why ratings remain very popular and sometimes, they can be rather informative.
For example, Chinese website Weibo has published their research, made in November, 2016. They compared productivity of various smartphone models using the app AnTuTu. The results weren’t particularly surprising: the first and second places went to iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 7 respectively. Both Apple smartphones scored more than 170 thousand points. The third position went to LeEco Le Pro 3.
What was actually surprising is that there were no Samsung smartphones in the top 10. All other spots were taken by devices from Chinese companies, like Xiaomi, Huawei, and so on. Interestingly enough, since this information had been published (2 months ago), the top 4 remained the same.
