The developers of the popular Chinese benchmark Master Lu published a list of the most powerful Android smartphones in February 2020. It presents new models presented during the month. Interestingly, the results of some models raise questions.
According to Master Lu, the most powerful smartphone in February with a score of 518,184 points was the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. The Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20, which took second and third place respectively, scored almost 40,000 points less. Next up are the Realme X50 Pro 5G, Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro, iQOO 3 5G, ZTE Axon 10s Pro and Xiaomi Mi 10. In ninth place, Samsung Galaxy Z Flip with last year's Snapdragon 855+ processor is very unexpectedly located. It is followed by the HUAWEI Mate Xs, followed by the Vivo Z6 5G with the Snapdragon 765G processor, which was more powerful than the Sony Xperia 1 II on the Snapdragon 865. In 13th place is the Sony Xperia 10 II, which has a Snapdragon 665 installed inside, and closes the rating of Sharp Aquos R5G with the top Snapdragon 865.
It is unclear how the mid-range models were more powerful than the flagships. This may be due to optimization problems both for the benchmark itself and for new smartphones.
